    Who else is enjoying killing some Nazis? ;D

    I picked this up, just done the tutorial section but Mario Odyssey is taking over my free time.

    I didn’t even know this was released till I saw it front and centre in a Tesco entrance! Really loved the marketing for this too!

    Currently playing 'The evil within two' and I will be finishing that shortly, then I will be picking up Wolfenstein 2. The reviews are excellent (With an average of 90 for a rating) and from what I read, it seems it's been improved in almost every angle over Wolfenstein: The New Order. It looks great.

    I'm anxious to get it, though I'm not liking how game makers continue to add sex scenes to their games. I don't want to sound prudish but its not something I really need to see.

    Overall though I think it looks fantastic.

    Got it yesterday to run and played for half an hour
    mostly watching cut-scenes though
    - great fun! Loved TNO and Old Blood already so much so really glad they kept the formular unchanged and from what little that I've heard (not reading/watching any reviews ) improved on it.

    Can't wait to shoot up some nazi-scum! :D


    Edit: Minor complaint would be that I certainly hope the pre-order bonus mission / episode 0 will be free4all at some point becauseI defo don't want to miss out on that!

    I love this game, it’s getting to be a real problem with Wolfenstein and Mario dividing my free time.

    I’m I wrong for trying to stealth levels...chopping Nazis legs off shoving an axe in the chest is brilliant.

    Can you just skip through the boring cut-scenes and well, just kill stuff? :eek:

    Yeap, I’m killing me some Nazis hehe, it’s friggin tough though and I refuse to lower the difficulty! I only have it on the third setting lol! Pretty much the same MO as the first one, only bigger and badder! Some of the enemies are massive! But I won’t say which, leave you to find that out for yourselves hehehe..

    Totally agree. I have no problem with sex scenes, just don't want them in my games. It's awkward and pointless, really.

    Agreed...

    Is there a way you can turn them off in the settings?

    Well, in Wolfie 1 they had a few sex scenes, and in Wolfie 2 this means she’s pregnant. And they play to that in the story. So at least they saw it through lol!! They don’t bother me really, I get more annoyed with poor controls in games.

    I wasn’t expecting to have that much of a good time like I did with this game. The story and characters was just on point with their delivery, it was just all around fun.

    Wolfenstein II is on sale for $30 standard or $40 deluxe on Xbox for anyone with a Gold membership. Enjoy!

    Edit to add that it's Xbox One X enhanced, something I didn't know. Awesome. Can't wait.

    Amazon has it on prime for 24 right now, but is it worth it?

    Its funny, I've really enjoyed the prior wolfy games and I was all set to buy this, but for some reason, I'm having trouble pulling the trigger (pun intended) on this. I probably can't pass it up, and I'll hit the buy button on amazon but right now my gut is telling me not to buy it.

    100% worth it. Xbox, if that’s your platform, has the digital delux for $40 or the standard for $30 if you prefer to go disc-less.

    I never pulled the trigger on Wolfy but I did get it for Christmas and I started playing it this weekend. So far, its a very enjoyable game.

    This game is crashing my base PS4. I would thoroughly enjoy killing some Nazis.

    I'm actually underwhelmed by the game. I can't exactly put my finger on it, but here's a couple of things that I think are part of the issue for me.
    • Cut scenes are too long, and there's too many of them. I'm only at the train depot in area 52 (or trying to get into area 52) and I need to lower a rocket train. Up to that point I felt I had to endure an excessive number of cut scenes which were way too long.
    • Spending too much in the sub and the sub seems overly complex for no reason at all. The graphic details are astounding, but I feel I'm spending too much time wondering around there finding where I need to go is frustrating.
    • Profanity. I'm no prude, but it seems over the top with this game. As a comparison, take Fallout 4 drops the f-bomb here and there, but its done in way that helps with driving the point, where as wolfenstein just throws it around everywhere.

    Whelp, I finished Wolfenstein 2.

    I played it on and off over the past couple of months. As noted above, I'm mostly underwhelmed by the game. I'll not belabor the points I made above but I felt the game just didn't grab me like the prior versions. The story line seemed ok, but was just not captivating, which is sad, because I think the concept is there, they just didn't execute it - at least to my liking ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    unless im forgetting something, the only 'sex' scene i noticed was a fairly short and comic scene where one of the good guys was caught with the fat german girl. its not remotely pornographic.
