Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus Is Boring

"Originally, I was writing a piece to hype up the latest Wolfenstein game: Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus. However, on release, this game was just so pointlessly boring and agenda-driven that I couldn't help but scrap that and put this piece together. " - MCXV

I didnt think it ran so well on low-end hardware

LinkageAX1173d ago

I know right, the game is like "your pc wont run this on ultra"; but setting it on that was fine.

no FPS has yet to dethrone Bioshock 1. Haven't played Wolfensten yet but he's probably right that it's boring.

Review sounds more like "I put the difficulty too high for my skill level and got raped, game sucks!"

NiteX that's just your nostalgia talking. That would be like well Super Marios Bros 3 was better so thereforce these current mario games suck.

I could not disagree with you more.

And how is this agenda driven? It's the same premise as always: Nazis = bad.

You're entirely welcome to not like the game, but the series is no more political than it has been since it launched 3 decades ago.

LinkageAX1173d ago

If it was fun game driven it would not have been so bad.

lptmg1172d ago

has there ever been a discussion regarding the morality of a nazi?

UnholyLight1172d ago

Almost sounds like they're upset at how brutal the Nazi are in the game...just like in real life almost. Not sure how that's agenda driven! the game establishes the brutality as extra motive for the story and I LOVE IT

Hardiman1173d ago

I think it's awesome! I don't really do FPS's anymore but this is a great game!

LinkageAX1173d ago

I think you are more easily amused than myself. Did you play TNO and TNB? Both were great fun. This one, it doesn't feel like it was developed with fun in mind.

Hardiman1173d ago

I did and completed both and I enjoyed this one just as much. Like I said I don't play FPS's anymore but I like the ones like these that are story driven and it covered a lot of dark subject matter and did so very well. It's not my favorite but when the artice says it's boring I just disagree.

LinkageAX1173d ago

Eh, fair enough. I personally really enjoy fast-paced shooters that are more simple. The first two seemed to encompass that as it was purely good guys vs. Nazi's. This one I think goes too far in establishing bad guys when its unecessary.

Hardiman1173d ago

Also when someone likes something you don't and you say "you are more easily amused than me" it kinda comes off as pretentious.

iDadio1172d ago

Bit of a dick move to classify his opinion as merely because he's easily amused, he didn't say your opinion is merely because you're a wannabe SJW looking for clicks?

I wasn't pulled into it like the first game...my problems with the game were little issues that one their own you can brush off but they built up and became really god damn annoying

The worst part of this game is the Stealth...yeah I know it's a game about shooting the shit out of things but if you give us the option to do that and even put some form of Stealth/tactical skill tree in the game then why not go the full way with it.

They literally see you straight away even if they aren't looking your way or if they are miles away, the dogs who are with the commanders run towards you even if you haven't been spotted, all enemies suddenly know where you are when the alarm has been rang even if it's just because they've discovered a body when you are no where near it, you can't stealth some enemies because the explosions alert everyone, you can't even bloody pick up bodies to move them despite the abilities you get later on...I mean WTF come on, I felt the stealth in the first game was a little better.

UnholyLight1172d ago

This guy again? lol. The stealth is amazing. Just like TNO which was a fantastic game. This one didn't let me down the enemies have a believable line of sight. They cant see you when youre sneaking around if you know how to properly play the game....

-Foxtrot1172d ago

LOL...the stealth is not amazing it's awful

I've explained why it's shit yet you haven't explained why it's good

Figures.

I was really worried about the commie stuff since the reveal, actually. It seemed like it was setting up the rebellion group to be at least somewhat socialist, and I just can't get into a game where I'm just replacing one awful, oppressive system of government with another one. Especially since, if that's the direction they're going in, it will be fantasy communism straight out of a 19 year old college kid's Marx essay.

EatCrow1172d ago (Edited 1172d ago )

History is bound to repeat itself...mainly because of the idea that I know better then anyone else. My truth is all that matters and therefore what I think is okay. Regardless if there is evidence and historical proof that says otherwise. That was back then and this is now....this is the mentality that will make history repeat itself. Identity politics has already happened before. Gender fluiditiy and freedom of sexuality has already happened in history....it didnt end well and it wont end well this time either.

Just because of peoples feelings... what lack of maturity and understanding.
