    Lol..what?

    There's a Nazi moon base?

    Until reading that, I had no interest in this game whatsoever....will definitely pick it up now, in the next big Steam sale, the days of me paying full price for games are long gone, as you get older, the 'patience is a virtue' saying becomes so true.

    Personally I've found the graphics a little disappointing, especially the lack of decent AA. Eyefinity support requires using the widescreenfixer patches.

    Otherwise, no problems running it on my ageing Radeon HD6990 using the latest 14.4 WHQL drivers.

    I was staggered with how nice it looked for how little strain it put on my PC - Even on High settings. I also thought the game flowed brilliantly, and was executed really well.

    I have but one question. HOW DID YOU EQUIP TWO SILENCERS WHEN DUAL WIELDING PISTOLS?!

    By default "c" changes the mode on the right weapon, "y" ("z" depending on keyboard layout) the one one the left.

    Of course. Have you never seen the documentary "Iron Sky"?

    Haven't played a massive amount so far, only just escaped the hospital, but what I've played I've really enjoyed, reminds me for some reason of the great fun OTT days of Duke 3D.

    Ahhh.

    I was pressing C expecting both to be done. That'll make my life easier, I can't count how many knife kills I've accumulated so far!

    I might buy this just to demonstrate that there is still a market for games with an actual storyline, as distinct from the endless, justification-free grind of the free-to-plays.

    Haha, that's just what I thought on reading that.


    I do hope that's true! I enjoyed that film far more than I was expecting to.

    Thx for the appetite raising review...

    Darn, I just missed this on the steam-sale, had I read this before I would have desired it.

    I think I got the ore recent ones in a steam sale or something dirt cheap.only played one a little bit before I got distracted and sidetracked by something else, but was good fun. Proper old school single player FPS.

    Love the setting on The New Order, Yes its a bit easy but sometimes I just want to blast Nazis in cool surroundings and feel like a badass!

    Absolutely. Games as pure entertainment rather than an infuriating challenge to be overcome is all to overlooked. Difficulty snobbery is a terrible trait.
