I absolutely LOVED The New Order, it’s easily one of my favourite games of this generation, but you’re right something about New Colossus doesn’t feel quite as right as it did last time. And I think it’s because the first half of the game your max health is capped at 50. That REALLY annoyed me, it got to the point I had to turn the difficulty all the way down because I just couldn’t survive one of the earlier levels. Another problem is it’s for some reason harder to pick up items and ammo, you have to be -exact- when… Read more »

Really, that’s a shame. I think this is better than the first in many ways, even if I feel that it lacks some of the punch that the first games story had and isn’t as memorable. But I still loved the crap out of it.

Usually concur with Jim but ohhh boy do I disagree with him over this one. I found the gameplay here to be pretty much perfect. Yeah, BJ is pretty squishy, but that’s part of the design. The game discourages slow gameplay – if you stay still, you will be hunted down, and like Jim pointed out, you will not last long. However, if you stay on the move and play aggressively – a la Doom 2016 – you will do just fine.

In other words, this is a shooter done actually well.

Well, I agree with Jim. This game is step down but I don’t like writing. It seemed kind off.

Hmmm…I watched the intro that Jim is talking about and while I haven’t played the game. I’m not sure how I feel about it… I don’t agree that with those who say the game is hypocritical to depict violent victimization while revelling in it later. That’s not what it’s doing. I agree with Heather Alexandra insofar as she mentions that it’s about showing how violence is insidious as an ideology and manifests later and how violence itself deserves a violent response….BUT…. The narrative problem with this is that essentially BJ as victim of violence only gets to hope for the… Read more »

I’ll submit that you were underwhelmed because you were only killing *virtual* nazis. I get you. The world is a bastard, I know.

I got called an “SJW Cuck” by a libertarian for wanting this game.

Now I want it more.

Having only played the opening couple of missions I can’t speak to the game as a whole but I can’t say I’m confident abut the rest of it. I absolutely agree that BJ (hahaha his name means blowjob) feels very squishy. I died a number of times because I got blindsided and was dead before I knew where I could react, and this is only on normal difficulty because I’m a worthless casual. It makes me want to stay back and pick guys off before advancing rather than charging in with a machine gun in each hand and going mental… Read more »
