Even if you forget that Nazi zombies have been turned into something of a cliche at this point in gaming's history, they're simply less fun to fight, turning much of Act Two into a repetitive meat-grinder lacking the stealthy options that were the hallmark of The New Order. ...It's weirder than New Order, no question, but the world-weary, "make Max Payne look like Beverly Cleary" narration from B.J. keeps it from a grindhouse vibe that would have made Old Blood feel much more essential.
The biggest element that feels missing is the incredible character interaction from New Order. ...This is constructed as a fun trip through the best parts of prior Wolfenstein games, and it mostly succeeds in that mission. We wish it had crazier weapons and more complex personalities but it’s still fun.
The story is more or less self-contained, which means the previous titles are not really a prerequisite. It’s a solid shooter which can easily fill that weekend itch if you need something to play off the cuff. ...Bottom line: the price point is right, the DLC is solid and you could do a lot worse with your gaming dollars than Wolfenstein: The Old Blood. I doubt anyone will walk away from this experience feeling anything less than satisfied. I know I certainly was.
