Our videos of Inversion

Although it was released in North America quite a while back, Inversion is only available in Europe as of this week. Some will say we haven't been missing much and it is true somehow. Saber Interactive's game is indeed a poor copy of several titles, Gears of War being the most obvious of the bunch. The gravity gimmick is not used at its full potential and the shooting mechanics are way behind Epic's series. Story isn't that interesting either, despite the twist which happens at some point in the course of the game. All things considered, the ending is a bit original for a video game, but the very last image after the credits partly ruins it for the sake of a potential sequel. That being said, the game being cheap (40€), it could still keep you entertained for a little while this summer.

I am quite impressed with the interaction of the levels (shooting out walls, doors, etc). Nice and colourful too!

hmm seems solid enough and i'll probably get it later some point. Writing is a bit naff though "what was that" while looking directly at some never before seen floating road debris

Could work as a time killer, after I've first finish a dozen other games that I haven't had a chance to play yet.

Unless everyone in that world makes it their life duty to go to the gym every day. I don't get why every character seems so damn hulk build like.

    GriftGFX and game engine graphics pipelines or even programming interfaces for their products. None of that is their role in the whole thing.. and it shouldn't be. (3 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX @Sdarts: Nvidia and AMD already do help developers with optimization more than they should have to. Nvidia and AMD should be improving the hardware and driver end of the technology and not worrying (3 Hours ago)
