AusGamers has previewed Wolfenstein: The New Order after getting a decent amount of hands-on time with the game on Xbox 360 and writes:
"The game paces itself beautifully too. The inside of the castle you ascend at the beginning is equal parts eerie and ripe for exploration. Frescos line the walls in keeping with the Nazi tradition of stealing all the world's greatest treasures, and you never know what you're going to find around each and every corner. You can crouch and lean out of cover, which is handy, and jump of course. Everything else though, is contextual to the situation handed to you. This is an adventure game wrapped in a shooter, so expect things to shift up as far as interaction with the world goes, but from what I've played so far, it's never at the cost of the meat of the game..."
