Wolfenstein: The New Order

Firstly, let's start with a bit of history, because this game has a very long one. If I can recall correctly, Wolfenstein was probably one of the first games I ever played, back when computers only ran MS-Dos or Windows 3.1. Yes, a very long time ago.

The original game was called Castle Wolfenstein, released in 1981, then it's successor, Wolfenstein 3D came out in 1992, which was my first introduction to PC gaming. I remember it like it was yesterday, you had to install the game using about five or ten floppy discs. These discs could store a monstrous 1.44MB, which at the time was a marvel of what science had achieved. A first-person shooter using the most rudimentary 3D graphics, and is regarded as having helped popularize the first-person shooter genre.

The plot of all the original Wolfenstein games and the rest, since the beginning has pretty much stayed the same, you take on the role of William "B.J." Blazkowicz, an American soldier who has been captured by the Nazi's during World War 2, and your mission is to escape from the prison bunker you are being held in. The only way of escaping, is by killing Nazi's.


"If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed." - Adolf Hitler

Fast forward to 2014, about 33 years after the original, Wolfenstein is back and this time it's looking seriously awesome. Yes, it's about 4 years old, but a very fun game nonetheless. I bought this on the Playstation Store for about $6 USD, 75% off the original price as part of their Exclusive Discounts deals for Playstation Plus subscribers. I'm not the biggest fan of first-person shooter, but tend to really enjoy them from time to time, and The New Order is turning out to be loads of fun.

As you can see from the trailer above, the game's story line takes on an alternate reality, one where the Nazi's have won World War 2 and then subsequently took over America and dominates the rest of the world. It's a very refreshing and creative take on the story in the series, a well deserved upgrade from your stock standard WW1 or WW2 shooters.

In The New Order, you start out, at what looks to be near the end of the Second World War, 1945, on a massive Allied air raid to take out a Nazi fortress and weapons laboratory. This lengthy prologue mission gets you acclimatised with the game dynamics as well as laying the fundamental of the back story, and ends with a very hard moral choice your character needs to make.

I won't spoil it, but the choice determines one of two story line paths you'll get to get to go down, so a double play through is definitely suggested.

Once you get past the first chapter the game actually only starts, your character B.J. is terribly injured during the escape from the fortress and ends up in a psychiatric asylum, in a vegetative state, unable to awake.

He is stuck there for 14 years, his awakening was quite something special, so I'd rather not spoil it for you.

I found this really great character progression picture above, illustrating how the graphics has developed over the years, as well as gameplay trailer below. I have a massive problem with buying any game when I haven't seen a bit of the in game play. Wolfenstein is available on the standard gaming consoles Playstation 4, X-Box One and as well as PC, seeing as the game is a few years old, you can also find it for the previous generation consoles.

This game was developed by Bethesda Softworks, and you can almost feel it was made by them, they have a very unique art direction style across all their games, like Dishonored and The Elder Scrolls. Both of which I will be reviewing pretty soon.

The New Order runs and plays pretty well with a few tiny texture and audio sync glitches here and there, but hardly noticeable. All round it's your stock standard shooter, but with a heavy optional emphasis on stealth, which does bring in a great balance to the guns blazing, shoot-first-ask-questions-later combat style.

The steampunk feel the game has is also not overdone, and the dark metal machines tech fits in well with the fictional Nazi-controlled future. The developers also artfully reference real-life Nazi atrocities into the story.

Game review for ADSactly by MorkRock

Sort:  

The original Wolfenstein was revolutionary! I couldn't play it enough. Seeing the pics above brings back all the memories!

OH man I remember playing this on my 486 dx66mhz with the math coprocessor. That thing ran so fast on that machine as most people only had a 386 at the time. Wow we really have come a long way from the pixel mosaic image to the full movie quality graphics of today. Thanks for the trip down memory lane. Oh yeah i had 2mb of ram on that machine and had to get a 256bit chip to upgrade my graphics so it could go from 256 colors to 16,000 colors whoo hoo.

Lol those were the day, thanks for the awesome comments 😉

Yes. I also like this game review. I like mostly the las gif used in this post. Great creativity.

Good Post...💜💜💜🌹🌹🌹🌹

I remember playing Wolfenstein in the old days and i thought the game was fantastic when i first emerged in the 3D shooter style. Could say that I have growth a little bit with the game and where it got today is quite impressive. And one thing that i consider most important is that in gaming world the name worth quite much and its history ensures selling like no other new games that lack any emotional connection with the end user. Nice memories, thanks for bringing them back ;)

Yeah the nostalgia was deep playing this, they actually added a secret mission where you can play the old Wolfenstein 3D in the game, was super fun and a great hidden lil gem.

Wolfsfein 3D was also one of the first videogames I played as a small child. I remember being really scared of those robot-like bosses!

And about Bethesda, is one of my favorite gaming companies along with rockstar.

I am looking forward to the release of the new elder scroll!

I can't decide if more people are trolling supporting the Nazis, or are actually serious and braindead claiming Nazis did nothing wrong.

Amazing post! :)

i love this type of games .. good review!!!

Games are a part of refreshment it is important but sometimes it disturbs daily routine few persona play it like it is the necessary. They take it like drugs for that kind of person games arecurse.

Very thick with your memories, maybe for others very difficult to remember his past. what else about the game, because this game is now very different from the first. my question, at what age do you play the game? ? ? ? thanks. greetings

Truely 1.44MB was a very massive storage for computers back then and yet was still a marvel of scientific innovations, who would have thought that those days of floppy disks and giant desktop compuers were soon to pale into oblivion.

The pc has comes quite a long way. 😊

Why are the COD fanfagboys hating this so much? Maybe the game is aimed for single players.... You know, the 'campaign' thingie half of you COD players skip to go and "360 quick scope dawg"

I was blown away by New Order in just about every way, it gave me everything I wanted from a genre I loved back in the day but far more modernized. The music in it was amazing as hell which caught me off guard too, the newest one steps everything in this one up a notch which I was happy about

verry good gaming.. i like it..
thanks for sharing

Good Thanks posting...

Havent got the chance to play this bit it review is good.

This is exalctly what i thinkwhen i say evolving.
Just like look back in 1980at a motocycleand at one from 2017 and you will learn for yourself what the evolving wordreally mean.

Impressed by the content you managed to privide. Interesting approach and history of the game in cause.
What i think it should be cool is that the game would jeep its original mame : Castle Wolfenstein.

Thanks for the kind words good sir.

thats a verry good gaming.. i like it..
thanks for sharing..

tipuvote! :)

Awesome post in this awesome game!
Keep it up :)

good post I played this game on PC pantuem two when I was study on university that was best moment but now the technologie groing fast I think in few days the gamesplay on reality in big spaced holograme with 7D its become real new order.

To play this game requires a lot of intelligence.

Awesome review! Enemy Territory was one of my favorite games back in the day!

Great game! This and the Doom were the 2 games that addicted me with the FPS, they were prophets who announced the arrival of the great Half-Life!

Juegazo! Este y el Doom fueron los 2 juegos que me enviciaron con los Fps, fueron profetas que anunciaron la llegada del gran Half-Life.

hopefully always succeed @adsactly and always keep working in steemit.

Thanks for making me remember this game
