And why it's still all the better for it.
Wolfenstein still keeping it old-school.
yep.....and i sure wish treyarch would have done the same.
Me too. But it seems there'll be Nazi Zombies in BO3 at least.
Well IF you ignore things like leaning around corners and aim down sights things which are not old school..Or really aiming in general since old school would mean you just have to point in the direction of something
Didnt play the new order but got digital preorder for this one
It was surprisingly good. You should check it out next time you spot it on sale.
U can find it on Amazon thru a 2nd seller for $19. I did
It is alright but no way should anyone pay full price for the New Order. It is very old school and does feel dated in its design. It reminded me of an old PS2 game. It is a good second tier title (which is strange to see since they have died out in favour of cheaper indie titles) but they asked for way to much at launch
I have to respectfully disagree with iamnsuperman. It definitely shunned modern shooter conventions, but I'd argue that a lot of those modern shooter conventions weren't necessarily good things. The game had a story that drew you in, interesting characters, decent replayability with a branching story dependant upon a decision you make early on, and it had impeccable level design. I paid full price for it day one, and I haven't had the slightest bit of regret. I think Machinegames did an amazing job with the game.
Having all your weapons all the time is old school and awesome!
Long live Ol'skool!
In a market full of futuristic shooters, Wolfenstein feels so fresh and old school.
It's the kind of shooter that shooters deserve in this day and age.
Sadly, this could have been DLC for The New Order. Odd they decided to make it into a full retail release. Greed knows no bounds, first publishers/companies cut content out of the game during development in order to re-sell as DLC when it should have been in the main game from the start. This is much much worse as they are selling what was cut from The New Order during development and re-packaging it as a full retail game in The Old Blood. That's terrible.
This game is standalone digital release for $20 flat...a seriously good proposition for those who haven't played the FULL RETAIL game and might be interested. Great strategy in marketing if you ask me, The New Order was spectacular as an experience. If this were DLC that would make the barrier for entry that much more of a hurdle, making THE OLD BLOOD a standalone game is a much better option. IMO
That's not what they're doing at all. This was always planned as a small DLC add on for The New Order, they decided they wanted to add more content and raised the price by $5, and are selling it as a stand alone. That means people can play it without purchasing the original game, how is that greedy?
As much I hate dlcs and all that , nowadays it has also become a trend to say every new game is cut out from the previous one..they used to have expansion packs in the old days you know , treat this one like that.
The new order deserved a lot more attention. Great game and best shooter of 2014.
....by being a generic old school shooter.
I respect your opinion, but with the various upgrades you find for weapons ie the shrapnel mod for the shotgun allowing you to shoot around corners, the ricochet mod for the laserkraftwerk, etc... I found the gunplay to be satisfying and far from generic.
I prefer old school FPS over modern (COD clone) FPS. Most FPS now feel like a Micheal Bay film, which isn't a good thing because his film are terrible.
Good. New Order crushed. Can't wait too crack out on this.
It's not often I sit down to read a preview impressions of a game, but in keeping with the retro theme, this article reminded me (in a good way) of the way I'd pour over magazine articles.
