I'm willing to be the trade in to Best Buy is worth more than I'll have paid for this thing after the $25 reward certs are factored in.

My copy arrived from Best Buy today. (They never get here early when it's a game I'm actually excited about. )

Will try to post some impressions later.

7.8 from IGN for the PC, PS4 and Xbone versions.

No mention of it for the PS3 or 360.

I read the IGN and they actually praised it quite a bit to the point I thought based on it the score would've been closer to a 8.5.


Polygon has their review up and it's almost parallel with IGN...their score...9.0
http://www.polygon.com/2014/5/20/571...w-order-review

Gameinformer....8.0......http://www.gameinformer.com/games/wo...er-review.aspx

Gamesradar.....4 of 5 stars.......http://www.gamesradar.com/wolfenstein-new-order-review/

Hmm, decent. I might just wait on this, especially with Watch Dogs due in a week.

Yeah, I decided to skip after all. Didn't want to try and rush through it in a week and I'll be playing Watch Dogs next week. And it looks like Best Buy doesn't even have a trade in value for the PS3 & PS4 versions. Just the 360 & XB1 versions for $30. And nothing at Target for any of the versions.

I was also surprised a bit. While watching the review I was thinking it's going to get a high 8, maybe even a 9. Then the 7.8 shows up. It only got dinged for two minor things, dual wielding is a little wonky, and that you have to push a button to pick up items.
He says during the review he had a blast playing it, and gave it positive marks for excellent presentation and fun gun play. For me, that's mainly what I look for in shooters.

Gamespot has it at ....8.....http://www.gamespot.com/reviews/wolf.../1900-6415765/

I was reading this and overall they praised it as well but their strikes against it...Laser Cutter cannot be used creatively and Perks System. It was the same with the other reviews; overall talked about it being mostly good but found a few points to nick-pick.

No multiplayer?

Might have to redbox this one.

I was tempted to buy this, but at $70 CAD, there's just no way.

That sounds expensive. How much is that in real money?

Re: Wolfenstein: The New Order (PS4, Xbox One, 360, PS3, PC -- 5/20/2014)

I played a few hours last night, up to Chapter 4. It's quite a bit of fun, but you already know exactly what you're getting. The levels are designed so that most situations have multiple possible approaches, and you can go in stealthy or guns blazing. Although some areas are obviously designed more for stealth and some combat situations are unavoidable.

The various perks/upgrades are unlocked through completing secondary objectives (# of kills with certain weapons, kill 5 enemies with thrown back grenades, kill 20 enemies stealthily with a silenced handgun, etc.). Those add a bit of variety, and the nice thing is that your progress is saved even if you die or reload checkpoint. So you could theoretically have most of the perks unlocked by the end of chapter 1 just by grinding and reloading.

The best part is when the tough bouncer-looking guy gets on stage with a broom to sweep up all the coins.

Anyone pick up the game at Best Buy? Do they give you a $5 gift card right there?

I also picked this up today for the 360. I didn't have any problems installing disc 1. It did take about 40 minutes to finish. Do you have 8 gig free where you're installing it to?

I've played about an hour and have enjoyed it so far. Old school FPS.

It still shows on the website as a "Special Offer", but according to the fine print, it's pre-order only:
