Our PC videos of Mars: War Logs

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.

When is this coming for the consoles?

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.

About the game


What's up?

    Moonwalker @KORNdog: Speaking of Spiders, I finished Technomancer yesterday. Fun game but dragged down by WAY too much backtracking and lack of different locations. (56 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: I'm not far enough into the game yet but I heard the game world is very interesting and full of great quests with multiple choices. Those kinda things sound great to me. (58 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i honestly think they'd do better making something on a smaller scale. like an isometric action RPG. that spiders (developer) could do with going that direction too. (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it just looks like a typical game from them to me. like they bit off more than they can chew and the results are just mediocrity across the board. (2 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: the facial animations are bullshit yes, animations in general are passable, combat isn't nearly as bad as I expected though. The world so far has been great, very very nice indeed. (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it still looks all kinda of garbage though. lol (2 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker tearing was horrible, not to mention loading times. Plus it really doesn't look too bad either. Trees and foliage swaying in the wind, nice lighting. Good job PB. course all the jank is still there :) (2 Hours ago)
