One of the best stories told about alternative nazi occupied world. Blazkowicz kicks butts.

This shooter is very fun and the story is just awesome: nazis won second world war and you live in a world of nightmare. Fight for freedom and shoot nazis to save your ideals and friends. Gameplay is very well done, so you will have fun time holding two miniguns at the same time.

Review from Steam

A fantastic game where you shoot Nazis, stab Nazis, blow up Nazis, liquify Nazis, atomize Nazis, assassinate Nazis, and commit just about any form of violence against a Nazi you could ever hope for, perfect game in my book

To buy, to play or to skip?
What do you get out of it?
I played this game twice, with several months in between and finished it early 2022. The two playthroughs together took me close to 44 hrs, with the second one taking up almost 30 hrs due to aiming for 100% achievements. For many gamers one playthrough will suffice, but 10-15 hrs is still excellent value for the money. Aiming for the achievements is actually real fun since it involved getting all the available perks which demands adapting one's playstyle quite often.
How did it age?
The game was originally released in 2014 so by the time of writing this review it is almost 8 years old. It does show its age in some respects, like in the sometimes blurry textures or in the not so perfect lipsyncing in cutscenes, but in the end it doesn’t feel like an old game at all. Don’t expect state-of-the-art graphics, that’s all.
Is it worth buying?
Yes, definitely now that it’s often on sale for 10 euro/dollar or less (2022). And when you already have it in your library but didn’t play it yet: just install and hit the play button whenever you feel the urge to kill lots of nazi's.
Verdict: Very good, great fun to play
