The rest of the game has MachineGames’ signature fantastic writing, performances, and cinematography, but there just isn’t enough of it. The story is pretty thin in the long stretches between cutscenes and makes sense with the game’s more open approach but it’s disappointing because of how skilled the storytellers at the Swedish studio are. It deserves more, despite its budget price.
In the end, I feel like I’ll continue to struggle with how I truly feel about Wolfenstein: Youngblood. Its strange and uncomfortable structure, or rather my reaction to it, clearly stems from my love for the “normal” games. It isn’t more of what I loved; therefore, it’s scary. At the same time, some of those scary things are legitimate frustrations that seem to compromise the game to make it more gimmicky. It’s still as charming as ever, and is full of fun characters and dialogue, which makes it harder to really be disappointed.
At the very least, the core gameplay loop is still a ton of fun and it will keep you entertained long enough to see the main story through to the end. If you’ve been looking for something to dive into with a friend recently, Wolfenstein Youngblood is filled with more than enough action, explosions, and Nazi beatdowns to make it worth your consideration.
