This is a place holder post for my rolling review, which will be posted as comments. Each time I play, I will add a comment detailing my thoughts and feelings as well as some screenshots and other information.
Feel free to join me as I play.
Wolfenstein®: The New Order reignites the series that created the first-person shooter genre. Under development at MachineGames, a studio comprised of a seasoned group of developers recognized for their work creating story-driven games, Wolfenstein offers a deep game narrative packed with action, adventure and first-person combat.
Intense, cinematic and rendered in stunning detail with id® Software’s id Tech® 5 engine, Wolfenstein sends players across Europe on a personal mission to bring down the Nazi war machine. With the help of a small group of resistance fighters, infiltrate their most heavily guarded facilities, battle high-tech Nazi legions, and take control of super-weapons that have conquered the earth – and beyond.
The Action and Adventure
Wolfenstein’s breath-taking set pieces feature storming a beachfront fortress on the Baltic coast, underwater exploration, player-controlled Nazi war machines, and much more – all combined to create an exhilarating action-adventure experience.
The Story and Characters
Hi-octane action and thrilling adventure weaved together into a tightly paced, super immersive game narrative featuring memorable characters.
The History and Setting

In mid-2017 I decided that I should play some of the games I had in my Steam library. I had said this before, hadn’t we all?, but I was going to do it this time. I suppose like most people, I’m pretty busy but I felt I could play for at least 1 hour per week. I know that 1 hour is not very much but if I stick to that I should be able to finish 5 or 6 games per year – way better than zero.
Each time I play, I make a comment on the game’s post, detailing my thoughts and feelings. I am hoping that other people will follow along, but recognise that most people play more than I do.
