History The Old Blood is divided into two parts. The first BJ, the protagonist enters the legendary castle Volfenshtajn with a friend Wesley. A risky venture: BJ does not speak German, so the passage of the first patrol already tickling the nerves. Moreover, that meets us with a nasty head of the bully-accompanied “cute” dog Greta:
– From Frankfurt? Amateur sausages?
– Ya … uh … ain hot dog …
Oppressive silence. The warden with suspicion looks at BJ, but after a moment laughing loudly.
– Here’s a joker! Stupid Americans! Hot Dog! That’s win, they have poplyashut. At ease!
At this point it becomes clear that the developers are not kidding when the game was called B-movie. Jokes are really flat.
Of course, through the catch and sent to the chamber 10-15 minutes of us. Get out of it that she will collapsible tube – with the help of BJ can climb walls and secretly killing Nazis. Covert passage running on the same system as that of the original.
There are officers who can raise the alarm and called reinforcements – they should be killed secretly, unless you want to face, nose to nose with an army. In The Old Blood eliminate them, to my taste, more difficult than in The New Order.
The game enjoys a large open space, with tens associated with each other rooms and corridors. Often, to get to positions of officers, without attracting the attention of the ordinary soldier – a task almost impossible. And it is not a feature of the game, and the omission of game designers.
Perhaps the only serious error that I noticed. I as a fan concealed passage in Wolfenstein: The New Order was much more interesting from a tactical point of view.
Since the events of the game unfold to stories The New Order, the Germans are not yet fully implemented its super-duper technology. So do not be surprised when the first levels you will find a super-soldier, “connected” wired to electrical panels.
To kill them, it is sufficient to disconnect the power and use the pipe to smash cable. It’s a shame, but in the middle of the first part, they suddenly cease to need the supply side.
It becomes clear that this was done only for the early stage of the game, when the developers literally make you quietly pass section by section. This “obyazalovke” is not built into the gameplay logic.
In this case, The Old Blood has virtually flawless rhythm. Underhand passing – an open confrontation – clash with the super-soldier – some wow moments – the end of the chapter.
One trip on the cable car is worth: a skirmish over the abyss, leaping through the blue sky fighters fall into the abyss of endless water …
Such moments bribe, but of course, we should not think that their game is crammed. Most of the time you will spend for the classic shooting, a little different from the first part.
And this is what gives a certain “budget» The Old Blood – it is a battle with the bosses. No swing, no fanfare. Just super-duper-soldiers on steroids.
And the fights with them are built roughly the same pattern: Hit a few times a sore point – running up – blow – Running back – repeat.
On the other hand, developers focus on the bosses did not do any interviews, nor in the video. Therefore, expect something similar to The New Order, and not worth it.
The second part of the game suddenly turns into a kind of Resident Evil. Shamblery appearing on the scene, local zombie Nazis (oh, you do not sigh so, yes, zombie Nazis!).
It is clear that the passage of the secretive be forgotten, and your friends will be the main gun and all the same tube that suddenly turns into a powerful weapon against the rebels dead.
Once I stopped on the head – the brains of a bloody fountain fell out of the rotten skull – bring down the next. No you recharges, solid bloody mary.
But firearm with a large spread of bullets (eg, machine) is suitable only well-aimed players, not me, krivorukost. After all, you need to aim at the head and other body parts of zombies is much less susceptible to damage than conventional enemies.
But in this part you can really come off in full. Burning buildings, something eternally chewing zombaki finally dippy dog fighting, turned into fiery apocalypse dogs – a great addition to the first part, seasoned exclusively in the spirit of the original.
Pleasant variety. And the more pleasant that the developers originally intended to release two separate games and then still decide to merge them under one cover.
