Wolfenstein: Youngblood feels like a short co-op experience stretched out over a barebones RPG skeleton. It doesn’t feel comfortable in its own skin. It’s too thin in some parts while being bloated and lumpy in others. Whatever it is, I don’t really want to touch it. Ultimately, it’s just a disappointing sidestep in an otherwise fantastic franchise.
It’s all mindless, forgettable action. Without a good story to justify the mayhem, Youngblood feels devoid of ideas, built on a tragedy that deserves more respect, more emotional heft. In the end, it’s missing BJ’s humanity – and that’s a surprise. I was greatly looking forward to playing as his twin daughters, but it turns out that a musclebound meathead is the savior the series really needs.
While some may take exception to the new style of play, the characters, and other issues; the game is attractively prices at $29.99 and seeing how Bethesda has been providing updates on a regular basis; this is a Wolfenstein game that fans who exercise a bit of patience and adaptation can warm up to as I did.
