This Wolfenstein game is like a fun exploitation movie about killing Nazis in alternate history 1961, where the germans won WW2. It goes to some crazy places, like a Nazi base on Venus housing a old and paranoid Hitler. The FPS gameplay is entertaining, if a little bit uneven. The awesome soundtrack was composed by Martin Stig Andersen (LIMBO, INSIDE, Control) and Mick Gordon (DOOM) and is well worth listening to on its own.
I played the start of the first chapter of this new Wolfenstein game with Martin. It's very cool to hear him talk about the game. Also, why is it so insanely brutal? Those Swedes are crazy.
On sale for 159 DKK.
I finally got around to playing this. That title track is so good! Mick Gordon rocks.
The first hour is crazy. The way it switches tonally between the somewhat realistic and the hilariously grotesque is really strange, a tonal switch that is accompanied by the switch between Mick Gordon heavy rock and Martin's abstract horror soundscapes.
I have now placed the nuke, but the nazis seem to be leaving in rockets. To where?
The Dallas flashback sequences were amazing, who'd have thunk that B. J. Blazkowicz could have depth and such a cool character arc?
B. J. went back to the old farmhouse and had a lot of flashbacks that were surprisingly effective. Blazkowicz Senior was waiting for B. J. in the house and wanted B. J. to turn himself in to the authorities. Senior ended up dead. Later on, so did Super Spesh.
completed the game on Don't Hurt Me (2/6) difficulty.
The final boss fight took a whole bunch of tries. And then, it was time for revenge on General Engel. And then, a rousing speech from Grace. Good stuff.
