Description

In ÜberSoldier Karl Stolz destroyed the ZE1-Complex in which the ÜberMacht revived the dead and produced ÜberSoldiers. The opposition believed the war to be won, but soon they learned, much to their surprise, the location of the producer of T9, the substance that keeps the ÜberSoldiers under control. Even though the ZE1-Complex has been destroyed, the drug is still a serious threat and so Karl Stolz and Maria Schneider go in to end the war once and for all.

Along the way, Stoltz will depend on his ÜberSoldier powers to help him survive. Headshots power up his bullet shield, which temporarily makes him invincible to enemy fire. Slashing enemies in the head with his knife provides extra health. The gameplay is classic, no-frills shooting. You have five weapon slots for a pistol, rifle, machinegun, rocket launcher, and grenade but you can only carry one type of every gun at the same time.

The game features a multiplayer mode for up to 16 players featuring Deathmatch, Team Deatmatch and ÜberMesser Deathmatch. ÜberMesser Deathmatch pits the opponents against each other only armed with the knife.
