Our PC videos of Mars: War Logs

Mars: War Logs was released a few days ago and after five hours playing the game, we must say the game's old school flavor has managed to enrapture us. This action-RPG is indeed very atmospheric, with the first hours reminding a bit of Escape from Butcher Bay, and although it is not perfect from a technical standpoint, it has a lot to offer for a downloadable game. Considering the game's price, it'd be foolish not to give it a go on PC. As for console players, you know have something to look forward to. Check out our videos inside and enjoy our 1080p/60fps footage. Also, feel free to ask us questions if you want to know more about it.

Key features of the game

- Around 20 hours of gameplay in the core story with lots of side quests.

- Multiple endings. The choice you'll have to make at the end of chapter 2 will completely modify the story.

- Dynamic combat system where your tactical skill and reflexes will be tested to the max (the opposite of Of Orcs and Men's system).

- A high level of character specialization using different skill trees and an excellent crafting system allowing players to customize their character and make their own equipment that suits their playstyle.

- Your attitude in the dialog screens, along with your choices and decisions, will influence your adventure.

I've been having a surprisingly good time with this, and it's definitely pretty long for a downloadable game. Needed a game to give me those Riddick feels, just this time it's in the form of a 3rd person action-RPG.

Like I said the other day, last time I heard it was delayed until this fall. I'll try to have some info if possible.

I am 8 hours in, best spent 16 bucks in a year :)
This game is great for it's budget and price, but don't expect AAA. It's not one, Yet it's gameplay-wise hard (in a good way), Maybe story doesn't seem that original but I don't think I have progressed very far. The setting is rather interesting and it has large RPG tree and nice crafting system.

You get a great package of fun a very friendly price.

    Moonwalker again until i saw a 65 inch, i was then dead set on 65 inch, lol. I'm hoping this TV will be for many many years to come and with that in mind it should be a worthy purchase. :) (3 Hours ago)

    Moonwalker @droezelke: Hard to say. I just knew for myself that for the 4K systems i needed a 4K tv. I had a full HD OLED and i knew there was no going back to anything else. Initially was gonna go for 55 inch (3 Hours ago)
