I can't recommend this game, even if I would like to. Since the day I bought it while it was on a 90% sale I tried to play through it. But I can't. 2 hours on record but I never passed the forth level.

The gameplay and controll feels from the beginn on very cheap, the soundtrack is uninteresting and after a while very annoying. The KIs are dull, don't even try to hide properly. Mostly you are able to rush them down while using your knife which makes all other weapons very useless.
The more you play the more you get the feeling that this game could be a good parody to 'Return to castle wolfenstein'.

Don't get me wrong, there are also good things in this game (yeah, you wouldn't believe that, would you?!). I really loved the drawed art-style of the cutscenes, also the voice acting is very well-made. Nevertheless, these both categories are not big enough to make the whole game enjoyable.

The lesson is clear: If you got it really cheap like me, it's okay for collecting. Otherwise go ahead and buy 'Return to castle wolfenstein'. It's a piece of gold under the WWII - Shooter genre!

Unfortunately Ubersoldier II isn't worth 9,99$.

Personal rating:

- 4.0/10.0 -

Oh man this game lol. While there are some fun parts, the majority of the game makes you frustrated from constantly dying even on an easy setting and want to rage quit. It takes 3 shots to kill enemies even on easy settings. Aiming doesn't help improve your accuracy as much as you would think when using a rifle. The dialogue is also cheesy. Bottom line it's a poorer version of the Wolfenstein franchise. If that interests you, get it while it's 99c.

I, like many people (I assume), first heard about this game from the guys at Inside Gaming. It looked interesting, I must admit, and when the price temporarily dropped down to $1.25, I knew I had to have it in my game library.

Well, one thing I can tell you now is that it IS definitely worth a buck and a fourth. This has got to be the worst game I have ever played. To start with, for an FPS, the gunplay is surprisingly terrible. The guns have no real presence and all of the sounds for them, from firing to reloading, are laughably stock. Each gun takes what feels like a year to reload (I'm sure you can see where that would get frustrating.) The graphics are extremely dated, even for a game that came out in 2008. It is also a Russian-made game. This in itself does not make it a bad game by any means, but it does mean that it has had to be redubbed. The voice-overs in this game are just unbearably atrocious. Everybody in it sounds uninterested in the current situation and when they should be yelling, they tend to do little more than talk in a high whisper. They are so bad that they make the acting in Just Cause 2 look like GTA V. The horrible voiceovers are not helped by the translated text, which so far has not had any spelling mistakes, but it is very convoluted to the point that you may need to reread certain sentences more than once.

The AI is something to be studied and talked about for many, many years in the future. Oftentimes I have seen enemy soldiers run into walls and not turn around. If they are not running into walls, they are throwing grenades at the ceiling and blowing themselves up. If they are not trying to commit suicide, they are making a beeline for you so they can continuously wack you in the face. To make combat a little more interesting, the developers have put a few "creative" features into the game. If you are taking too many bullets from all sides, you can put up your "UberShield", which will absorb incoming rounds and deflect them back at your enemies. It also, unfortunately, does not let you shoot back at them, as it collects your rounds and fires them when the shield runs out. In addition to this, there are the "UberSniper" and "Berzerker" modes, which make you immune to damage after 3 headshots and 3 knife kills, respectively. While all of these features may sound very interesting, they are not implemented into the game very well at all, and half of the time they just feel like a retread of other features from previous first person shooters.

The last thing I am going to talk about in this short essay of a review is the cutscenes. You remember cutscenes, don't you? The kind of ones that are either pre-rendered or made with the ingame engine? Well, if you don't like either of those, don't worry, Ubersoldier II has got you covered! Introducing the new and absolutely revolutionary comic-book cutscene! Watch as only 4 or 5 pictures are played continuously over bland dialogue. This has never been done in a game before, and I am sure that it is going to catch on with the AAA developers all over the world. (In all seriousness, the 4 or 5 pictures that they use in their cutscenes look hand-drawn, which at least took somebody some effort to make. Occasionally, they are drawn quite well, but not too often.)

It may sound like I am taking the ♥♥♥♥ out of this game. It might not deserve it, but oh boy is it such an easy target. It is definitely one of the worst games I can think of that came out in the last decade, something on par with Ride to Hell: Retribution. There are a couple of major differences between these games, though. Ubersoldier II has got plenty of soul, and a hell of a lot of heart, while Ride to Hell is as cruel and heartless as the Devil himself. When I play Ubersoldier, I at least get the sense that there was a team of people actually TRYING to make a good game. You know what, I think they actually might have succeeded.


In short: Is this a fun game?

Hell yes!

Old-school FPS fun pretty much sums this game up. The voice acting/dialogue is a little cringe worthy, but that kind of adds to the appeal personally. Visually it looks pretty good, even today. Is it "OHmahGAWD CRYISISIS 3 maxxed" good? No. But that doesn't matter, especially for a game that's 8 years old. Bottom line; the game's fun and it's only $10.

Possibly the most absurd cutscenes and unintentionally hilarious voiceacting ever. The gameplay is a mixed bag of filling your 'stab Nazis in the face' combo meter and savestating your way through instant death artillary barrage. Worth every headache when you get to the final boss.

This game is the Sharknado of games. You play it because it is just good stupid fun. The Notebook had a better opening car chase than this game, and the rest is just easy, silly fun. If your computer was made after 2002, you can probably play this, but watch out, changing the resolution can crash it until the computer is restarted. For a dollar, or 1.09 canadian like I bought it for (Still hate steam for the switch) the game is worth it; much more of a dollar's worth than angry birds on your phone.

Ubersoldier II is pretty much another generic linear first person shooter. All the guns operate more or less the same. The movement is Uberclunky. There is no auto-save during each level so if you die and didn't quicksave it, you get to start all over again. The story is Ubercomical, yet almost seems Uberserious at times. The graphics and textures are Uberugly even at HD resolutions.

You get XP during levels based on kill streaks to level up your Uberness which amounts to an Uberbullet shield, more health, additional accuracy, or longer Uberness. If you score 3 headshots in succession, your next headshot will rank you an Ubersniper granting you invincibility, unlimited ammo, and Uberaccuracy for a short time. If you score 3 melee kills in a row, your next melee kill will set you in a beserker rage where you just insta kill anyone that comes in contact with your knife. The skills are actually useful since there are endless hordes of Ubernazis that continue to spawn, sometimes even behind you in that last room you just cleared.

Overall, Ubersoldier II is an Ubercheesy first person shooter that pretty much Uberstinks. I only dropped six quarters on it, but I'm still trying to convince myself that it was money well spent.

Just like Crash Time is a bad cop film, this is a bad WWII film. Again, heart has gone into making this game from Russian Team Burut CT, but the dialogue and voice acting are hilariously cheesy.

It looks alright - the indoor environments are well fleshed-out, and the shooting mechanics have a bit more weight to them than say, modern Call of Duty games, but the controls are a bit clunky, the gameplay can get rather repetitive and the story isn't very engaging.

It's not a BAD game, but I'd recommend it only as a bit of a guilty pleasure and even then only if it's on sale.

I guess you could call this a guilty pleasure of mine. While this game has a lot of faults and is pretty bad, I just can't say I didn't have fun while playing it. Ubersoldier II is a satisfying game, with a style that reminds you of bad 80's action films. If this game is on sale, get it! This game is a riot and isn't the worst game out there.

Overall the game is pretty average, but it's not bad. I can recommend it only as a bargain-bin buy. The graphics are decent, the game is linear, and parts can be frustrating. It'll appeal to fans of old school FPS. I thought it was better than Return to Castle Wolfenstein (2001), but not better than other WWII games like Medal of Honor: Allied Assault, Call of Duty (2003), Hidden & Dangerous, or Deadly Dozen. I finished it in just over 6 hours.

Gemerican soldier and inappropriate music for its era makes this game a great one. At least it's playable unlike Dementium II. $.99 well spent.
