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.

About the game


What's up?
  • Tinks
    Tinks I think if OW had as much history as Street Fighter it'd be just as unforgivable. It is a shame competitive isn't up yet though (13 minutes ago)
  • scoobs0688
    scoobs0688 Mercy, Zenyatta, and Lucio are just a joy to play (1 Hour ago)
  • scoobs0688
    scoobs0688 I think one of the biggest accomplishments w/ Overwatch is them making 4 support characters that are FUN to play. Like REAL fun. (1 Hour ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz I'd love to see Overwatch hit 95+ and stay there purely for the meltdowns. Already there's a thread on NeoGAF wondering why OW is not getting panned like SFV for lack of content. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @Megido: 10/10 means different things to people. Some consider holding up and mashing through galleries of gorgeousness 10/10 while others prefer polished gameplay experiences. Both have their place. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I'm in a "waiting for player" lobby and both teams are standing around the first point spamming emotes at each other and not fighting. It's beautiful. (3 Hours ago)
  • Megido
    Megido It's great fun and a very well made game. But it's not like it's flipping the entire world of gaming on it's head and just exploding your balls with how unthinkably amazing it is. (3 Hours ago)
