I never played the first one because of all the universally horrible reviews, but I was tempted from the screenshots. I actually stole some of the architecture and design from some of those Mortyr 1 screenshots for a level I was making once, I liked them so much.
Too bad this one sounds awful too but I'm liable to download it and give it a try. I like this kind of game. Like RtCW I prefer my WWII games with lots of evil supernatural science fiction escapism. Can't stand the realistic war shooters, MoH, Battlefield Vietnam, et al.
Well, I actually bothered to download it, but it ain't fun: I'm experiencing problems during level load. It took more than five minutes for the prograss bar to reach its end (!), and then nothing happened.
