To be honest, the PCWorld games review team had its fears about Wolfenstein: The New Order prior to launch, too. Previews made the game look like a drastic reimagining for the classic series, and Bethesda didn’t get us review codes until a day or two before the game was released.
We were right in one respect: This was the most radical departure for Wolfenstein since, well, ever. It doesn’t look like classic Wolfenstein, it doesn’t play like classic Wolfenstein, and it’s not even a twitch shooter. But our fears proved unfounded: Wolfenstein: The New Order is utterly glorious. This is the Torque of video games and it came out of nowhere.
