Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus Gameplay Impressions

I got my hands on Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus at a demo event in NYC. I go into deeper details in the video above, but basically I liked what I saw. The biggest improvement over the previous game comes by way of character animations for enemies, which makes them more dynamic targets as they sway and stumble when taking damage. It no longer felt like a headshot after headshot shooting gallery.

Beyond that, there's plenty of the Nazi-maiming action you'd expect and plenty of dark humor and over-the-top characters to breathe life into the story.  It's still too early to tell if the whole thing ties together into a cohesive game worth sinking $60 and ~20-30 hours into, but the concerns I had about gameplay seemed to have been addressed. So that's good.
