Gameplay Is Still Very Linear
For anyone who is new to the Wolfenstein series, you should know that the game isn’t some massively expansive open world game that gives you the freedom to explore the nooks and crannies of a Nazi-run America at your leisure. Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus is a very linear experience that essentially has you making your way through a series of intricately detailed corridors with very few opportunities to stray off the path that has been pre-determined for you. If you’re worried that might have some sort of negative impact on the game’s ability to build a meaningful and captivating world, however, you should immediately tuck those concerns away into the darkest part of your brain.
Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus is actually a stunning reminder of just how fantastic a linear gaming experience can be. While you may not be able to stray very often, the game provides the type of gunplay and narrative that makes you detest the idea of getting distracted anyway.
