Wolfenstein: Youngblood came out yesterday on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. The Wolfenstein spin-off is getting largely mixed reviews with critics and fans alike.
Wolfenstein: Youngblood is the first modern co-op adventure set in the Wolfenstein universe. For some, it’s with the co-op element where the game shines the most.
“This side chapter provides a steady dollop of Nazi-massacring fun, especially if you have a pal along for the ride,” writes Game Informer‘s Javy Gwaltney.
IGN’s Dan Stapleton was more critical, calling the game’s co-op “serviceable.” He argues that Youngblood “doesn’t come close to recapturing the joy of its predecessor’s action or its surprisingly interesting characters and story.”
Metro Game Central gave the game a 7 out of 10, noting that “Youngblood is an odd mix of flawed ideas and welcome improvement, with level design that is notably more interesting than Wolfenstein II.”
Fans are giving the game “mixed” reviews on Steam with only 47% of the reviews positive. Based on the reviews, it’s a good thing that it launched at a reduced price.
