Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus is a tightly constructed shooter that offers a great story as well as memorable moments of extreme violence.

A new free-trial demo is now available, that offers the game's first level for PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One. The PC version of the full game is being offered at a 50 percent discount on Steam, Green Man Gaming and GameStop. Amazon is also selling console versions at discount.

In Wolfenstein 2, players take on the role of B.J. Blazkowicz as he fights his way through an alternate history in which the Nazis — aided by fiendish weapons and super-soldiers — are in control of the United States.

We gave the game a beefy rating of nine-out-of-ten when it was released last month. Our review stated that it's "a thudding, explicitly violent game that doesn’t mind looking into the heart of the people involved in war. It's one of the few action games that plays with the idea of what would happen if the hero was to be held accountable for the hundreds, if not thousands, of people he kills."
