It was really stupid of them not to include it for free in the first place considering the Switch version's price, especially since the 9 campaign levels mostly reuse assets and take place on indoor areas like the campaign.
My thoughts exactly. I just finished it up a couple of days ago and had the same impressions. Really fun, gyro is incredible, actually made me better at console fps's than I have ever been.I just got to the resistance HQ in New Orleans and rode the robot dog. Not sure how much of the game I have left, but I'm having a lot of fun with it. Gyro aiming is really something else; makes this the best version IMO.
Level design is really hit or miss this time around. The layout of more open-ended levels feels super confusing to navigate and the path forward never really feels obvious. I don't really ever see the destination marker on the screen until it appears I've triggered something.
Panic Button really did a great job with this port. Resolution definitely took a nosedive in New Orleans level and never really recovered until I reached the HQ, but the levels prior are excellent. I wonder how long Panic Button has been working on this port; I'd imagine with the right amount of time, these issues can absolutely be sorted out, but if the studio has been working on it for 8 months to a year? That's some outstanding work for that little time. The way the studio really retained game feel despite the lower framerate is amazing. I usually notice the lack of 60 fps but this really doesn't feel any different to the PS4 version.
I'm looking forward to their work on Warframe and the projects to follow, and I hope Wolfenstein II gets a shot in the arm in terms of sales; it's well deserved.
A new update for #Wolf2 on #NintendoSwitch has been released including performance improvements, a new motion option, and fixes to menu and Star Card issues. https://bethesda.net/community/topic/237606/wolfenstein-ii-nintendo-switch-patch-9-26 …
You could never replay the story in any version unless you start a new game over from the beginning. They said in previews that the district side missions are supposed to be the level replay option from the first game even if it isn't the same thing eg there's areas you straight up can't go back to.
I played it as my first Wolfenstein game and loved it. I’m playing Youngblood right now and I’m honestly enjoying it even more. Play 2 first.Is Wolfenstein II worth playing if you've never played its immediate predecessor?
With my Xbox 360 going up for sale on eBay recently I don't have any platform that the first game is available on, so I'm not able to play it, but I have a passing interest in the franchise.
