Wolfenstein: Youngblood releases later today on PC (with a console release set to follow tomorrow), but before we can head back to the series Nazi-infested alternate future, it’s time to check out what the critics thought of the game.
In our own Wolfenstein: Youngblood review, Chris says that it’s “a riotous and well-designed entry in the series.” It’s worth pointing out, however, that Youngblood is “built with co-op in mind. Solo play is fun if flawed, but play with a friend, and you’ll both have one of the best shooter experiences of the year so far.”
That ‘so far’ is likely to be pretty key, especially with Doom Eternal and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare releasing later this year. All that said, however, it looks like you (and a friend) are in for a pretty good time in Wolfenstein: Youngblood – the game has achieved an average score of 75 on Opencritic, and garners an even higher score of 77 over on MetaCritic.
Without further ado, let’s check out those scores:
- TrustedReviews: 4/5
- The Guardian: 4/5
- PCGamesN: 8/10
- GameInformer: 8.5/10
- IGN: 6.5/10
- PCGamer: 79/100
For the most part, it looks like Wolfenstein: Youngblood has performed pretty well. It might not push the series forward as much as its predecessors, but critics have praised its accomplished new approach to level design and MachineGames’ excellent gunplay.
Wolfenstein: Youngblood should unlock on Steam in just a few hours, so get ready to continue BJ (and co)’s adventures very soon.
