Ubersoldier II was the kind of game that I wasn’t expecting. The first Ubersoldier was passable as an okay shooter, but I didn’t think that it would actually pave the way for a sequel, in much the same way that I didn’t expect Mortyr to get another game. But it must have done really well overseas and Russian developer, Burut, came out with a followup to Karl’s adventures.
It’s a good improvement over its predecessor, but it’s definitely a budget shooter for the solo soldier. The powers are back and the action can be fun and it didn’t crash my PC, but the story is best ignored along with the awful English voice acting concentrating on taking out the Third Reich. Again. Not bad for the price, but only if you’re looking for a WW2 shooter that doesn’t quite feel like a WW2 shooter.
Anyways, here’s my field report from the front.
