This was boring as hell

Pretty shovelware. Playing a Mech-dog doesnt come close to fully armed boots on ground action. Every level is the same boring euro city block or boring interior. Enemy and weapon variety is hardly existant and there are almost no gory kills. Not even the primary flamethrower causes any burn damage. The hacker interludes are boring palete cleansers for an already bland main course. Stick to Doom VFR which has way more of everything.

Is It Any Good?

Over three decades, the Wolfenstein series has taken the fight against Nazis from the battlefields of WWII to an alternate history of the Third Reich's rise to global power. Wolfenstein: Cyperpilot sidesteps the main series as an offshoot adventure, running parallel to the most recent entry to the franchise, Wolfenstein: Youngblood. Unfortunately, while the game brings you closer than ever to the action thanks to its great use of VR technology, it never feels like anything more than just a glorified demo.

The biggest problem facing Cyberpilot is that it does such a great job of showcasing its potential, only to never actually come close to reaching it. The game looks and controls great, and it's a blast to play. But just when you start to get into any sort of groove within a particular cockpit, that stage is over. While the action can get intense, it still feels like a tutorial, walking you through the basics and then dumping you back at your base, meandering around and twiddling your virtual thumbs. And with only a handful of main Nazi-fighting missions to go through, Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot feels like an afterthought in the series, an incomplete game, and most importantly, a missed opportunity.
