There have been some great first person shooters lately including the likes of Titanfall, but for Cliff Bleszinski, Wolfenstein: The New Order was the top dog.
In an interview with PC Gamer, Bleszinski gave praise to TItanfall but was also quick to express how impressed he is with the latest Wolfenstein game.
“What I liked about Titanfall was the variety of gameplay that, just when shooting by itself started to get a bit old, your Titan would be ready and they knew how to switch it up a bit. I think introducing a little bit of minion gameplay without Titanfall turning full MOBA was a good step for them.
But outside of that, the new Wolfenstein was in my opinion, and I daresay this, one of the best first-person shooter campaigns since Half-Life 2. And I think I’m about halfway through right now, I’m stuck on this bridge section but I refuse to lower the difficulty because I hate having to do that in a game.
But when I saw that game at E3 a couple years ago and then PAX East, I was completely underwhelmed, I was writing it off. I didn’t want to be a dick and say something about it on social, but my expectations were really low—I thought it seemed kind of cheesy and just weird. And then when I got hands-on, it was extraordinarily well written, graphically gorgeous, and the maps were extremely well built. And the combat was just fantastic, it was a labor of love,” said Bleszinski.
