Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus is the latest instalment of the original first person shooter. BJ faces off against another Nazi army in this direct sequel to Bethesda's relaunching of the series with 2014's New Order.
After his last battle with an invading Nazi force, William J. Blazkowicz wakes up in hospital severely injured. The year is 1961 and another fight beckons with a completely new story set in iconic American locations. Resistances groups have sprung up across the country, offering a beacon of hope to the weakened BJ. Bethesda's 2014 relaunch of the Wolfenstein series received solid reviews for its darker overall tone and challenging gameplay, and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus continues with this promising direction. The tongue in cheek weapon arsenal returns with new creations like the LaserKraftWerk. Some of the most interesting aspects of this latest game come from the art direction and location. The game is set in a reimagined early 1960s America brought to ruin by the Nazis with levels taking places in some of the world's most famous landmarks.
Back to life
Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus is a great addition to Bethesda's range of the ultimate FPS. The humour and silliness of the originals shines against larger and more impressive locations.
