CHEATCC’S 2017 HOLIDAY BUYER’S GUIDE

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus

Where the first game was mostly somber and straightforward with a few nudges and winks along the way, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus is insane. It’s unhinged. It’s loud and doesn’t care what you think, but cares so much about what it has to say and what it wants to do. It’s not a thinking man’s game or a lavishly empty display of pretense; it’s about 15 hours of blunt force trauma to subject matter that may make people uncomfortable in 2017, for reasons that shouldn’t make a decent person uncomfortable.

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus is a game about killing Nazis, and reveling in that violence. It’s part righteous fury, part joy in the face of madness, and part dope-ass first-person shooter. To put it simply, it is a lot. Go ahead and fight some Nazis on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC!
