Wolfenstein: The New Order - Nowhere to Run
B.J. Blazkowicz and the resistance fight back against General Deathshead, and his legion of Nazi forces despite the overwhelming odds against them.
Looks really cool to me. I actually want to play it now. The action and the shooting look really good and that's what really matters in a shooter anyway. The levels, like the one at the museum that was shown last year, look wide open. I'm hoping that will make the game a little more replayable.
The police car at about 55 seconds has a very typical American muscle car look. Doesn't it seem unlikely that look would exist given the alternate history?
It's not important really, just a thought that entered my mind :).
Yet ultimately, Duke Nukem 3D had linear levels anyway - the different paths merely reached around to touch each other.
Half-Life 2 might have been ground-breaking for its time, but there had been many other games which try to do what it does - just look at the Metro titles. Shooters which try to do "excellent gameplay and story" like Half-Life 2 are a dime a dozen nowadays, I would say.
these are games of generations-past. To me, the present-day ones are
cookie-cutters, but the older ones are not necessarily better just because they were the originals - they were the trend-starters which eventually
inspired so many been-there-done-that titles.
I, for one, don't want another game like Duke Nukem 3D and Half-Life 2, i.e. rehashes - I want something convincingly new and refreshing.
This next Wolfenstein title doesn't seem to fit that, by the way.
*yawn* More story-focused SP FPS games with bland,linear level designs. I swear we'll never get a game as great as Duke 3D which actually favorised exploration and gameplay over dialogues,cut-scenes and other BS plaguing the market nowadays.
@spartanx169x yes it is goddamn it
Also, Duke Nukem 3D has fantastic level design. Linearity is completely subjective, and frankly, if you can explore to the extent you can in that game, sorry toots, that ain't linear. You want a lazy, boring-as-shit linear crawler, play through Half-Life 2 again. Most overrated game ever.
@gameroutlawzz It sounds like you have not played the borderlands games. they are very unique in a lot of ways. First visuals are different to anything out there. Second, that series is all about exploring the areas you go to. And third. Its not another serious story. Its comedy every where you turn in the games. More so in the second game than the first. The DLC in the first game has lots of comedy as well. And hours of gameplay. Both games start very slowly. But are worth it once you get into the games.
@gameroutlawzz Yeh a good story sucks, I would much rather a game that I don't even know why I'm shooting like Titanfall right.
Same goes for Half Life 2 Yawn, who needs excellent gameplay and story when you can throw a bunch of weapons and mechs in and all the dudebros and 12 year old can play yay.
I actually have said that before - and here I am, having said it again. Duke Nukem 3D might had been awesome during its time, but in hindsight, it was only so because it has done something rarely done by other games, i.e. had more complex levels than other shooters during its time.
Also, you are being defensive here - can't take criticism of a game which you adore?
