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.

    Sdarts So Forza Horizon 3 also benefitted from FM6: Apex. Quantum Break's PC version was Remedy's first foray into DirectX 12 development. And I also agree it seems like it was decided late in the process. (5 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Source: [url] He was referring to Quantum Break on PC. Also, I'm sure Turn 10 shared what it learned from Forza Motorsport 6: Apex with Playground Games (5 Hours ago)

    Sdarts @alimokrane: True, Remedy's Head of Communications said: "We have worked on this release for a while. We got a lot more experience in shipping DX11 titles." (5 Hours ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane perform very well. I am expecting Gears 4 to follow suit. (6 Hours ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane To be honest, QB looks great on XO. the PC port was a fiasco really.. MS shouldnt have forced them to do it. Other games which intended to have a DX12 port well early look great. ReCore and Forza H3 (6 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX Not that DX12 wasn't (isn't?) over hyped :D (6 Hours ago)
