Uberstrike HD is a first-person shooter for the Mac. It is a multiplayer game that has been recently upgraded with HD textures that make the game look a way better than the previous versions. I played the team deathmatch mode for about 25 minutes and I enjoyed my time.

The first thing you have to do is to sign up to create an account. All you need is a valid e-mail address - the registration process is quite easy. After that, you can customize your character: change its costumes and items. As you play the game, you will earn gold (or points) for each kill or good performances. After a while, you will be able to buy new weapons and costumes with those points.

There are quite a few locations for you to play on. The ones that I tried were interesting. There were bonuses all over the place which restored your health and gave you armor. You can also pick up ammo and better weapons. What I found most interesting was how you could use platforms to jump all over the place. This reminded me a lot of Sonic.

In short, this is not a realistic FPS. So, don't expect it to be a competitor to Call of Duty of Battlefield. Still it is a great game that should keep you entertained for a while. It is now free for a limited time, so grab it while it is hot.
