I played this game on the following rig:
-CPU: Intel Core i7 4770K @ 4.2GHz
-GPU: NVIDIA GTX 770 2GB @ 1367MHz/4100MHz (core/memory)
-RAM: Corsair 16GB 1600MHz DDR3
-HDD: WD Green 5400rpm (I think that's the speed)
This game has an excellent storyline that is developed very well. Each character you encounter (as well as the one you play with) has very realistic feelings and emotions that are portrayed very well by the vocal actors. You begin to become attached to each character, and want to drive on through the story to find out what happens to your friends (and your enemies).
The game has at least two playthroughs worth of replay value, as there is a key decision you make (choosing between two options) that determines how the rest of the game will turn out. I have examined the game's folder in Steam, and there are two variants of cut-scenes for each chapter that will play depending on which choice you make. About to go through my second playthrough of the game to see how the alternative would turn out.
It took me around 12-14 hours to complete the game on the second-to-last hardest setting, though I was looking for hidden items and health/ammo many times throughout the game to make sure I was prepared for whatever happened next. More on that in a minute.
Graphics: The graphics are very good, when speaking of maximum settings. My i7 rig with GTX 770 had no problem driving through the game with all of the graphic settings maxed. The graphic API used in this game is OpenGL. I was a bit displeased at the first startup because I wouldn't be able to track hardware temps and clocks with HWiNFO64 (or see current FPS because my info app is for DirectX titles), but I got over it.
I did run into the occasional texture glitch, where an item would be either completely invisible or hard to see (blending in with another texture), but a simple "restart from checkpoint" would fix it if it didn't fix itself after a moment.
The combat is very reminiscent of the older shooter titles like Wolfenstein 3D, but at the same time it is very modernized. I'd consider it a very fine mixture of the old and the new. You have a plethora of weapons at your disposal, in addition to knives. You can do stealthy kills by creeping behind someone and knifing them, or you can throw a knife at them to take them out silently as well. You can find ammo and armor in crates and randomly around the map, or you can salvage weapons, ammo, and armor from the Nazis you kill. I found myself picking up guns and ammo from dead Nazis many times in this game.
If you need a game where you can just run in a room and kill a bunch of enemies, this is DEFINITELY your game. For some reason getting kills in this title was much more satisfying than any CoD or Battlefield title I've ever played. Probably because they were Nazis ;)
The bosses I came across were at some times difficult to figure out how to take down, but once I figured them out, it was all fun and challenging. (I managed to get through this game without referencing to YouTube or using any guides.)
Occasionally, the game would crash to the desktop for no apparent reason. After this, I would simply open the game again in Steam, and it would work again. No idea what happened or caused the crashes, as there was no error pop-up or anything. I just shrugged, restarted the game, and went on.
Overall, this is a great game when it works. It is a combination of new FPS and old FPS, tied in with a great story and entertaining (yet sometimes challenging) combat. I would recommend it to any fan of previous Wolfenstein games, and any FPS gamer.
You can go in guns blazing with a machine gun in each hand, with a separate fire button for each, or you can sneak through and knife the baddies instead. Either way is fun and it’s usually your choice for how you're going to go through. There are some obvious points where you have to go in buns blazing and others where if you don't use stealth you're just dead, but both work in most levels.
The game is pretty graphic but I'm not afraid of that. I wouldn't recommend letting kids anywhere near this because of the blood, violence, and pretty graphic sex scenes.
I thoroughly enjoy this game and I like the reboot of the franchise.
I'm running the game on an Intel i7-4770K and GTX 780 with 3GB GDDR5 and Windows 8.1. The game runs very well and with no issues.
I did not give 5 stars due to a few things lacking polish: there are some odd quick-time moves that are not made clear, which you made need to go to a FAQ for help to get around (like running and sliding). Some of the levels are very large and the gameplay gets repetitive in those areas, especially if you die and have to start a long section all over again.
However, the game does have a basic skill system to improve your abilities, and you can play the game either focusing on stealth, guns-a-blazing, or somewhere in between.
Overall it was a good game to buy on sale (bought for $30 at the time), and I'm happy with the purchase.
EDIT: Updating my review after completing the game. Near the last part of the game some of the enemies on Uber became really tough, so I recommend scaling it back to "Death Incarnate", mainly to avoid the number of reloads. I finished on Uber but it became a real grind trying to redo some of the levels at that skill, as the enemies were a lot tougher than the damage your weapons could dish out, and if you reload some checkpoints you are thrown into areas without some weapon and equipment pick-ups that put you at a big disadvantage on Uber.
Overall I spent about 26 hours, which is a lot of gameplay for a single-player FPS these days. Also I just started playing the prequel game, Wolftenstein: The Old Blood. I'm 11 hours into Old Blood and really liking it, as the gameplay feels more natural due to playing through New Order first. I found I had to upgrade my graphic card drivers to play Old Blood, so they must have adjusted a few things in the engine in the sequel.
If you plan to buy this title, you may want to see if a combination package becomes available to give both titles at a lower price, with both New Order and Old Blood together.
