RTCW is wayy better than New Colossus.
RTCW should get the 1st spot but I'll settle for a 2nd spot for RTCW in order avoid unneeded quarrel with late 2000s new gamers - and this is coming from an late 90s, early 2000s FPS lover. (RTCW is one of the best single player FPS eve made and one of my fav game)

Wolfenstein 2009 doesn't get enough credit. It was genuinely good, I really enjoyed it. I think the reboot series from MachineGames is certainly better, but the 2009 game is still worth playing.

RaidenBlack725d ago

I had high hopes for Wolf 2009 especially after RTCW and Enemy Territory. And also because none other than Raven was developing it.
But they couldn't quite hit the mark. It turned out okayish. But after RTCW, it seemed pretty underwhelming as a sequel.

porkChop725d ago

Agreed that RTCW is clearly better. Though I don't think I had played that yet when I played the 2009 game.

I still favor Return to Castle Wolfenstein. I like the Indiana Jones and the Nazis messing with the supernatural vibe.

Sciurus_vulgaris725d ago

I remember buying Return to Castle Wolfenstein for Xbox when I was a teen. It was my first Wolfenstein title. I found the game challenging yet enjoyable.

RTCW was one of my first online MP experiences with broadband, both online and single player campaign was very fun.

RaidenBlack725d ago

I consider RTCW as one of the best FPS campaigns made. The mood, the pacing was just really good, especially for an early 2000s PC game. And it was pretty difficult too.

Wolfenstein 2009 is still my favorite by a mile. The variety of locations like the farm level and others were so colorful and fun to explore. The story as well with the Dark Sun and the enemies. Just very well thought out and BJ was perfect in it with his look and demeanor.

JL2930725d ago

2009 game way too low on this list. Original Wolfenstein is not better than any of the modern games.

Wolfenstein: The New Order Is The Last Of Its Kind

Wolfenstein: The New Order turns ten years old today, so we decided to play it again and discovered just how much of an extinct kind of game it is.

It's an outstanding game and so was The Old Blood. Also a lost era of gaming. Interesting, I received a physical copy of The Old Blood 9 years ago today from Poland. It was digital only in North America initially upon release so I had to import.

Wolfenstein: The New Order - A Highly Rated FPS That Hasn't Stood the Test of Time

Wolfenstein: The New Order launched 10 years ago today, but can it stand up to the modern FPS titles it inspired?

Seth_hun1d 16h ago

I disagree. Its still a fantastic game, with very good gunplay and a surprisingly loveable cast of characters and a good story trough many different and interesting setpieces

All The New Order needs for my tastes is a this gen enhancement patch.

ChasterMies1d 12h ago

I played New Order a couple of years after launch and I give it an 8/10. The shooter holds up because it is focused on being a good shooter. There is no crafting, no RPG elements, no open world find the question mark Weapons are fun. Enemies are fun. Levels offer a nice mix of stealth and shooting. You get to be the predator; this isn’t a game about fending off waves of enemies while a robot companion unlocks a door. Most importantly, New Order is the last of a dying breed of single player shooters.

Singleplayer shooters are still getting released every year, just look up "boomer shooters" and you'll find an an abundance of them. AAA fps campaigns, not so much.

Last year had Trepang2, RoboCop: Rogue City, Turbo Overkill, Warhammer 40,000: Boltgun, Dread Templar, Sprawl and more

The games you mentioned are not from AAA developers. Wolfenstein likely had a budget that was probably as big as all those games you mentioned combined. I'm not knocking the new wave of retro shooters. I absolutely love them (I think some get much higher review scores than they deserve though). I just really wouldn't describe Wolfenstein as purely a boomer shooter based on the relatively cohesive story, with cut scenes and is fully voice acted. Full set piece moments.

AA development seems to be focused keeping the single player solo experience alive. But the big developers are only concerned about the MTX and milking players who enjoy multiplayer.

ChasterMies23h ago(Edited 23h ago)

The age of AA shooters. I’m not saying it’s a bad thing. I like less expense, shorter games.

Abear211d 12h ago

Weird all the Wolfenstein articles.

Can you guess what will be announced at Xbox showcase?

DefenderOfDoom21d 11h ago

What Machine Games did with Wolfenstein franchise is awesome. The game play definitely to me , is still very fun to play !!!
