Game Completion 2018 #34 – Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus

  • Game: Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus
  • Platform: Switch
  • Developer: Machine Games (ported by Panic Button)
  • Publisher: Bethesda

I am a big fan of what Machine Games have done with the Wolfenstein series, and last year’s sequel was easilty one of my favourite shooters this generation. I enjoyed it even more this time around with the added bonus of portability.

This Switch port is a technical marvel. Rather than cut features or make substantial changes to make it fit on what is a battery powered handheld, Panic Button have managed to port the game in its entirety. The only cost is that it can get blurry at times, especially in outdoor areas, but it at no point hampered gameplay. It runs extremely smoothly and looks terrrific in motion too, even handling some of the biggest moments incredibly well.

I’m so happy to have replayed it.
