(ThyBlackMan.com) Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus received mixed reviews on both the PS4 and the Xbox One console. The game is also available on PC but PC players are the ones criticizing it the most. The problem started when the game launched on October 27 and players started the game on their PCs. In the beginning, things were good, but soon the Steam review page for the game started getting filled with complaints from players.
Players said that it seems developers at Bethesda and Machine Games didn’t care about playing the game on PC before releasing it. The problem comes in form of a technical glitch that stops players from playing Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus on PC running above 1080p. The game developers claimed that the game will support 4K but here what fans got is massive screen tearing while playing the game on PC.
The Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus issues don’t appear to be troubling every player, but the problem is widespread. Bethesda has disabled the Steam overlay and the company has also released a patch for Japan and the Middle East but according to fans, the screen related issues and blue screen of death (BSOD) problem still exists. The game developers are most likely working on a fix for the problem but players have some more problems with the game.
Many players feel that The New Colossus doesn’t look like a complete game. It appears to be a dull, unpolished, and boring game. The predecessor ‘New Order’ was an extremely fun game and its storyline was amazing. Character writing in the new game is really good and that’s one of the reasons why many people are praising the game so much. Bethesda’s marketing efforts did a good job and finally, Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus is making headlines for all the good and bad reasons.
Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus set off some trolls in the last few weeks with witty replies on Twitter. The series’ Nazi-killing tradition got some political touch when Donald Trump’s election campaign’s tagline was modified. There are some people who are giving poor ratings to the game as they don’t feel comfortable in shooting at Nazis in the game. According to some people, a political agenda is being pushed through the game.
The overall review score of the game is pretty good and apart from the issues in PC version, there’s nothing much which is being criticized. Some players are not happy with the game’s size and also feel that it is incomplete or developed in hurry. Well, the gameplay hours of many first-person shooter games have always been in question, but the complaints about glitches on PC are very genuine. It would be great if Bethesda could bring solutions soon so that the damaged caused to the game’s image, in the beginning, can be reduced.
The video game series has seen many changes in the last two decades, but the previous title and the new game look very similar in terms of in-game mechanics and mission design. The cover system is still nothing more than a disappointment. And what hurts the most is the abundance of weapons and armors on the way. The game doesn’t challenge you much, and this is probably the reason why some players didn’t feel a completeness in the game. Those praising the game have many reasons to justify that Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus is a great game, but we couldn’t find the improvements and changes we expected in the franchise, especially after so much hype.
Those who want to enjoy beautiful visuals and old shooting mechanics that never fail to remind you of the good old days, the new game is a gold and is worth playing. Those still having issues, keep informing the game developer and hopefully, you’ll get a fix soon.
