MachineGames managed to improve Wolfenstein in ways that don’t diminish any of the over-the-top violence. At $20 you really can’t go wrong with giving The Old Blood a shot. If you enjoyed The New Order then you’ll feel right at home with this prequel. ...Somehow Wolfenstein: The Old Blood makes killing Nazis and zombies, the two worst things in videogames next to quick-time events, a fun and worthwhile time.
From a mere gameplay standpoint, the zombies offer little more than tankier versions of regular enemies. It doesn't make for any more interesting gameplay and completely detracts from what makes the first portion of the game interesting. ...Wolfenstein: The Old Blood certainly doesn't lack action, but the more subtle moments that made The New Order stand out are sorely lacking. Gameplay is fun, if not a bit frustrating at times, but fans of old-school shooters will surely enjoy the strategic aspect to gunplay.
Wolfenstein: The Old Blood is very much an expansion of its fun, entertaining predecessor, but doesn't quite pack the same emotional clout. Still, a great FPS worthy of your attention.
