Wolfenstein: The New Order for Xbox 360 is the next installment of the legendary series of first-person shooters. The game was developed by MachineGames which is composed of veterans of the Starbreeze studio, creators of such titles as The Chronicles of Riddick and The Darkness.

Story

In this new installment of the Wolfenstein, the player assumes the role of BJ Blazkowicz, an American war hero, once again. The story begins during World War II but quickly moves to the sixties of the twentieth century. In this alternate version of the reality, the Nazis won World War II thanks to the Wunderwaffe (German for “Wonderful weapon”) and took control over the entire Earth, introducing the eponymous new order. Blazkowicz once again takes up his weapons to face his arch-enemies.

It is important that as far as the story is concerned, the studio MachineGames decided to reach for the solutions straight from the Inglourious Basterds movie: the game offers vivid characters and evocative scenes of confrontation with them and even the possibility of making simple choices during cutscenes. The campaign tells the story of Blazkowicz and takes place in various parts of Europe. The famous hero even arrived to Poland.

Gameplay

A lot of new elements appeared in the gameplay itself. Let's start with the fact that Blazkowicz can use an object-cutting device which helped the developers to implement simple environmental puzzles. In terms of shooting, the creators put an emphasis on the strength of the fire because each of the rifles and pistols is powerful. In addition, The New Order introduces a system of using two guns at a time, covers and tackling. The games pays tribute to the oldschool shooters and requires the player to pick up med-pack and ammo-boxes. The player will not survive long without running around.

Technology

Modern graphic design was achieved mainly thanks to the id Tech 5 engine which was used in games such as Rage and The Evil Within. Visuals are a bit more futuristic than in the previous Wolfensteins, and thus brings to mind the Killzone series. The New Order, however, looks visually colder, accompanied by the toned down electronic soundtrack.
