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.

    droezelke I really hope that the PS4 pro version has an advantage for 1080p gaming, and isn't just an upscaled 4K version. The framerate needs to be solid. (6 minutes ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke Last evening/night I've been playing BF1 for 6 hours straight. It's growing on me. The warbonds system is too slow and drives towards buying battlepacks. (7 minutes ago)

    Melmoth you can play RDR on pc now. Through Playstation Now. :). PS3 version, which is not quite as good as the 360 one, but still probably good enough. (33 minutes ago)
