  1. A decent FPS, but it is a very basic one that lacks attention to detail. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, but it takes a certain type of gamer to really enjoy this type of mindless, systematic FPS gameplay.

    It fails because it's an undemanding game that lacks of anything remotely challenging or memorable, to make it one that you'll easily forget.
  3. It certainly kept me entertained more than most of today’s over-hyped, higher profile FPSs.
  4. Ubersoldier has been made with some interesting ideas (although the choice of a WW2 setting seems strange considering the crowdedness of the genre and the nature of the story), but the execution of these ideas is far from perfect.

    Not even Hitler's plan to fight the war on two fronts was this painfully ill-advised. [July 2006, p.63]
  6. Ignore the god-awful voice acting and plot, and you've got a moderately enjoyable FPS. It may not break new ground, but what does these days?
  7. There are some good concepts here, but they get bogged down in some technical problems and major game clichés. Looking good is one thing, but not being able to run smoothly on qualified machines is another.
  8. If you can look beyond the technical issues, the game offers somewhat entertaining, if generic gameplay.
  9. Just don't expect quality, consistency, coherence, or any kind of worthy challenge to the head muscle, or the trigger finger.
  10. 60
    The inclusion of some rather uninspired telekinetic abilities does nothing to distance this game from the hundreds of other, more original and more entertaining games out there.
  11. ÜberSoldier looks great and is filled to the brim with excitement. It’s not a game you play for the story: it’s one you play because it’s fun.
  12. A first-person shooter with a fairly interesting premise, but uninteresting gameplay. This is as straightforward as games can possibly get.
  13. Ultimately, Ubersoldier falls prey to its own popular genre. Ubersoldier just doesn't contribute anything to FPS' as a whole, and many features of the game are indistinguishable from a title two years older.
  14. Massive system requirements, a by-the-numbers campaign, and no multiplayer make for a first-person shooter that doesn't have much in the way of redeeming qualities.
  15. 60
    This is the sort of game you can enjoy well enough while you're playing it, but once you exit the program, you'll be in no great hurry to play it again.
  16. UberSoldier would have benefited from any form of multiplayer. To no avail, there is none and you can clearly see it needed some form of replay value.
  17. It isn’t the next "Quake," or "Call of Duty," but UberSoldier does provide an entertaining ride while it lasts.
  18. 60
    Not exactly revolutionary and in most ways not even evolutionary, UberSoldier sinks even further into mediocrity with its appalling load times, pathetic voice acting, and power-hungry coding. However, its environments and scenery are quite magnificent, its battle concepts compelling and its AI adequate.
  19. While it’s far from a gaming masterpiece, UberSoldier does have its strengths that make it enjoyable.
  20. Just like the game’s music, UberSoldier is annoying and depressing. Almost every aspect aside from the game’s visuals is amateurish and badly made, right down to the overactive physics engine, which allows you to explode the glass in windows and push heavy tables over by just brushing by them.
  21. The enemies all come from the same place with the same weapons and in the same numbers, leaving little room for surprise or suspense on a second play through.
  22. 50
    Just a by-the-numbers first-person shooter. It has a somewhat unique charm, thanks to its ridiculous storyline, voice acting and nifty bullet shield.

    Leaves little up to the player apart from pulling the trigger. Repeatedly. [May 2006, p.96]
  24. PC Gamer

    This is a very generic, very buggy shooter. One other plus: translations and voice acting so bad, they're often entertaining. [July 2006, p.55]

    Inventive, but ultimately overshadowed by the big boys. [May 2006, p.81]
  26. A silly and often tedious collection of disconnected and ultimately worthless missions loosely held together by a forgettable storyline and some of the worst voice acting imaginable.
  27. PC Zone UK

    Sadly, once the script stops, the game quickly becomes a joyless chore. [May 2006, p.90]

    UberSoldier does not dare to do anything bold with its undead protagonist. Instead, the game remains a generic WW2 shooter, although a technically adept one. [April 2006]

    UberSolider lacks online play and offers an average, ageing, gaming experience - "Counter-Strike" does the opposite. Sure UberSoldier is a budget release, but sometimes you pay for what you get... and sometimes true quality deserves spending a few more notes.
  30. 75
    Given the shortness of the game combined with no multiplayer option add in the fact that there are other great FPS’s out there that are cheaper, will last you longer and have a multiplayer mode.
  31. UberSoldier isn't dreadful, but it's a long way from being up there with the best first-person shooters on the PC. The story is often laughable and the gameplay feels like a tired re-run of shooters released over the past five years.
  32. The similarities to Return to Castle Wolfenstein, the laughably poor voice acting, the distracting AI, and the terribly unfortunate inclusion of the Starforce copy restriction system makes this a harder game to recommend than it should be.

    I found this game to be very amusing despite what everyone else thinks. You just have to be into it to appreciate it.
