Overall, Youngblood is a welcome reinvention of the series, but lacks the personality of what makes a Wolfenstein game. Microtransactions aren’t as bad they’re made out, but it is still understandably going to impact each person differently. The extensive replay incentive and a charming, albeit short, story are appreciated. If you are a Wolfenstein enthusiast, this game definitely deserves at least one playthrough— just make sure you won’t have any interruptions during your sessions.

Youngblood suffers as a result of the Switch's relatively underpowered hardware, but for all its technical shortcomings, the game still delivers intense, momentous, and challenging combat. Everything features-wise remains intact, and you'll get to enjoy taking a shotgun (or fully charged laser beam) to the heads of Nazi scum. The Blazkowicz sisters, Jess and Soph, bring their own unique swagger to the Wolfenstein franchise, too. So if the Switch version is your only way of playing Youngblood, you can be confident it's still one hell of a ride.

If you're looking for something to tide you over until the inevitable Wolfenstein 3, Youngblood probably won't scratch your itch. It takes many steps back to the point where it feels like a lesser experience even when compared to shooters beyond this series. There's little of value added and it fails to even be declared average at best thanks to bugs and poor AI.

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.

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.

In some ways, it takes the series forward in the way it tries new ideas and mechanics - such as co-op and more open-ended level designs - and we hope a number of these features return for the next full sequel, but without the mind-bending twists and turns of its narrative, Youngblood pales in comparison to The New Order and The New Colossus. A fun and enjoyable co-op shooter (and another porting masterclass), but one that both improves and diminishes its own winning formula.

Wolfenstein: Youngblood is an interesting addition to the rebooted franchise, and if you have a friend to play with we definitely recommend that you check it out. However, if you're planning on going solo, be aware that it will get more grind-heavy towards the end and not having any company may lessen the experience. There's plenty of things to enjoy in Youngblood, though, and the Arkane level design is fantastic, even though it works best in a more focused, story-heavy environment.

Wolfenstein Youngblood, for all of my griping, is a very good shooter, and if you manage to find an online partner to play with consistently, it can even be an amazing shooter, but if you came looking for a linear, explosive Wolfenstein adventure, then I'm sorry, this is not it.

Wolfenstein: Youngblood offers exceptional gunplay the series is known for and brings a lot of interesting elements to the franchise for the first time. While the character-upgrades, sound design, and world are fantastic, the mission structure, lack of story, and awful checkpoint system bog down the experience.

Wolfenstein: Youngblood sigue manteniendo el encanto de las anteriores entregas desarrolladas por MachineGames y un extra de brutalidad gracias a nuevos poderes algo más futuristas. El hecho de que haya dos protagonistas le da un rollo cooperativo que se agradece, aunque lamentablemente se echa a perder el tener dos estilos diferenciados de juego con cada una si no accedemos al online, ya que en el juego offline son completamente clónicas a nivel de gameplay.

Für den schnellen Action-Happs am Abend ist Youngblood prima. Wer sein Wolfenstein lieber gehaltvoller mag, bleibt bei der Hauptserie.

Pour la première fois dans l'histoire de la série principale, ce nouveau volet de Wolfenstein relègue Blazko dans les personnages non-jouables et propose à deux joueurs d'incarner ses filles pour lui porter secours. Oui, autre première pour la série, Wolfenstein Youngblood est jouable entièrement en coopération.

Wolfenstein: Youngblood regala spettacolo e distruzione anche su Switch, attraverso un’altra sorprendente trasposizione firmata Panic Button. Nonostante l’evidente (e tuttavia necessario) downgrade grafico, il first-person shooter plasmato da MachineGames e Arkane Studios risulta perfettamente godibile anche sul piccolo schermo della console Nintendo, grazie alla risoluzione dinamica e al framerate quasi sempre ancorato ai 30fps. Passeremo ancora qualche ora in compagnia delle sorelle Blazkowicz, al fine di liberare ogni angolo di Neu-Paris dalla feccia nazista.

Per certi versi, Wolfenstein: Youngblood potrebbe essere classificato erroneamente come un “more of the same”, ma le tante novità introdotte lo rendono un titolo imprescindibile per gli appassionati della serie. La modalità cooperativa funziona decisamente bene, riuscendo a fornire una maggiore profondità a un titolo altrimenti godibile tranquillamente anche in solitaria. Le nuove meccaniche si portano dietro anche qualche perplessità, ma tutto sommato il gioco funziona e riesce a intrattenere per una buona decina di ore (o qualcosa in più in caso vogliate completarlo al 100%).
Tommaso PuglieseJul 29, 2019
Wolfenstein: Youngblood si conferma un ottimo sparatutto anche su Nintendo Switch, forte di un'inedita vocazione cooperativa che mischia le carte in tavola, un gunplay solido e spettacolare, un sistema di progressione che si allaccia eventualmente ai tanti incarichi secondari sbloccabili e un level design sorprendente, che introduce tante interessanti novitĂ enfatizzando l'elemento esplorativo e gli approcci alternativi alle missioni. Il tutto accompagnato da una narrazione coinvolgente e ben scritta, in puro stile MachineGames, che anche stavolta si dipana all'interno di cutscene dirette in maniera perfetta.
Francesco FossettiAug 02, 2019
Non è un mistero che la versione Switch di Wolfenstein Youngblood sia la meno incisiva a livello tecnico. Lo scarto prestazionale della console determina una riduzione consistente del framerate (che fatica anche a stabilizzarsi sui 30fps), ma soprattutto una riduzione consistente della qualità di texture, shader, effetti di illuminazione. Ne esce un prodotto affannato, con una risoluzione che rende impensabile giocarlo sul televisore di casa.
Daniele SpeltaJul 25, 2019
Accanto ad una ventata d’aria fresca portata dal level design, dalla libertà d’approccio e dai diversi stili di gioco ci sono però alcuni passaggi meno riusciti, come la natura ruolistica fin troppo conservatrice e che non esalta a pieno la marea di pallottole ed esplosioni.

Плохо ли все это? Для тех, кто обсуждает игру, основываясь на чужом мнении, пожалуй. А мне Wolfenstein: Youngblood действительно понравилась — в первую очередь за то, что это хороший кооперативный шутер. У меня нет проблем с прокачкой в играх, а уровни врагов не вызывают негатива, потому что сделаны грамотно. Локации в ней полны секретов, тайников и неочевидных мест, что превращает бэктрекинг из минуса в плюс, а побочные квесты — это лишний повод пострелять, то есть как раз то, ради чего я и пришел в Youngblood.

Sona geldiğimizde Wolfenstein Youngblood, her ne kadar genel itibariyle oynaması eğlenceli bir yapıda olsa da, mekaniksel olarak ilk iki oyundan farklı olmaması, hikaye anlatımında ortaya çıkan talihsizlikler ve en önemlisi co - op tarafının beklenildiği gibi çıkmaması yüzünden belli başlı eksikliklere sahip. Ancak yine de Wolfenstein Youngblood’ı yakın bir arkadaşınızla oynadığınız zaman eğleneceğinizin garantisini verebilirim. Son olarak oyunun Buddy Pass özelliği sayesinde oyunu satın almayan bir arkadaşınızı oyununuza davet edip, beraber hikayeyi bitirebildiğinizi belirtelim.
