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?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX but they're not going to back away from it. That's why the subtle acceptance of UWP is a very real problem. It's mostly the consumer's dumb fault I guess. (13 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Why? He keeps saying they're addressing consumer complaints while avoiding the real issues with the sandbox. Fixing v-sync isn't going to cut it. The whole agenda is fundamentally flawed (14 minutes ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke Spencer should be honest about that by saying it will improve soon. That would be good PR. If Remedy says that they can't optimise for UWP, that should be his concern. (16 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I saw those comments live and I think they're just talk. Talk is cheap. (16 minutes ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @jmd749: He's not saying that any major titles will come to steam. Probably only low budget games. But denying that UWP and the store are disasters, is stupid PR. (18 minutes ago)
  • Megido
    Megido Also welcome to 2016 Kratos. A single dad who stuggles to express his emotions. (38 minutes ago)
  • Megido
    Megido Haven'ät awtrched the whole thing yety, but 10 minutes in and all they've done is talk about the game like it's a movie. Disappointing. (40 minutes ago)
