Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus Impressions
The game is beautiful in a very strange way that is difficult to put into words, because the first time that you see a town draped in colorful banners and see soldiers in shiny uniforms marching along in perfect lines, it’s almost too easy to overlook the fact that those are Swastikas and Schutzstaffel insignia.
