An Intense Cyberpunk Rpg On the Red Planet!

Mars War Logs takes you to Mars, nearly a century after the cataclysm that threw the planet and its colonists into chaos. Water has become the most precious resource on the arid red planet, with a few companies fighting a perpetual war for its control.


In the middle of this struggle, play as Roy, a renegade with multiple talents who finds himself dragged in an epic story where every choice counts. Develop your character and your combat style by choosing among many skills and perks: melee, ranged combat, stealth, or the devastating Technomants powers.


Craft armors and weapons, recruit companions to help you in your quest, and plunge in a thrilling adventure offering a huge variety of quests. In dynamic, real-time combat, face formidable opponents and the most fearsome creatures of Mars. The fate of all colonies of Mars now lies in your hands…

When I first started this game I said to myself "Blah, another mediocre game, this is boring", but strangely I found myself addicted after about an hour or two hours of playing it. To be completely honest I knew I'd end up liking it anyways simply because it's a sci-fi action-rpg, taking place on Mars in the future in some Cyberpunk-ish, Steampunk-like setting. The story is okay I guess, nothing special and super crazy like something you would expect from a game like Mass Effect, but it's... "okay". I liked it.

What REALLY drew me in was the fact I could invest skill points into my character, the ability to also not only wear different armor and weapons but also modify them to suit your playstyle, which you need to find parts to do so. You can also romance two women in the game, I won't spoil that though if you plan on playing it. The combat is kinda' hard at first since you seem to have to dodge and roll around a lot to avoid enemy attacks, you can't just go in there and start button mashing because you'll get owned in probably less than a minute. Should've called this Mars: Enemy Dodging Simulator 2013. Also your partner barely helps you, if anything he's only useful if you plan on using him as a way to distract the enemy (at least I think so). The game is also extremely short, yes.... I beat this game in 16 hours, that also includes most of the sidequests, if not all of them. Crazy right?

But anyways, there is a sequel (or prequel) coming out called "The Technomancer", and it looks pretty damn good. As for this game, if you plan on playing it just play it without any high expectations whatsoever, understand this is a.... I guess you could say "Budget" game.

Alright, this is a short game, so it's up to you and what you feel like playing. However, there's high replayability since there are several paths to follow that lead to different endings (altough for that purpose, I highly recommend that you save prior to key conversations, as they do matter a lot in this game and the outcome).

The thing is... the combat sucks. Like, big time. But if you get hooked by the story, it's bearable and you can get used to it.

The game's got pretty interesting things actually, it does a good job at imagining a distopian futuristic Mars, and lets you build your hero/antihero with an fair enough skilltree. Not to mention that you can romance someone in it, as long as you're not a ♥♥♥♥ at a specific point in the story.

All in all, yes I do recommend it BUT keep in mind that the combat is real crap and that the game's a bit rough around the edges. AND buy on sale or bundled only.

This is only a slight negative rating, but lands on the not recommended side because I don't really think this is worth picking up, even in a sale. There are many much better examples in this genre. I got the game in a bundle, so I can't moan too much, but would not buy it outright.

I recall many games that looked a bit like this from my youth. Linear, slightly blocky textures, lots of running about and terse dialogue. Even the voice acting reminds me of those games, and the 8 hours of this I played reflect the nostalgia trip I was on. However, the lack of any real depth just had too great an impact, and I found myself dreading loading it up. That's when you know it's time to move this from the pile of shame in to plain old "not interested" category.

The story and characters are crudely drawn stereotypes, possibly done in crayon on the back of a happy meal napkin. That would actually be ok if the quest design was decent (again, like the golden era games I remember), but there is nothing but grind...run here, give this, kill that, run back. Another quest, and oh look, it's over where I just was, 15 minutes away through a maze of tunnels and streets. I found myself not caring enough about any of the people, or the world itself, to want to slog through this to find out what happens. The dialogue and quest branches are highly misleading, as are the on-screen dialogue prompts, so in as much as you have a choice about anything it is frequently routed in a direction you did not intend.

Unfortunately, the potentially very cool technomancy and martian survival story (warring water companies are an interesting twist on an old formula) are left to the back seat in favour of following the personal stories of two of the most boring characters ever invented. "Roy", a possibly bipolar schizophrenic with violent tendancies and an inability to explain even his basic thoughts without a drawn out monologue ("Hmm, there's a door here. I think it's closed...yep, locked. Darn! Maybe later I can pick it or get someone to open it. Then I could go through, hmm, see what's in there. Because now it's locked, and won't open."). And then there's "Innocence", which is so on-the-nose it's silly...he's about to be ♥♥♥♥♥ in prison when Roy comes in and saves him (by beating everything to death with a heavy pipe). Innocence is the reflection of his name, and we're supposed to go on the journey with him more than Roy, though Roy is the player character, as he gradually becomes more grown up, whilst still anchoring Roy to his humanity. It makes for terrible, terrible dialogue, and really, they probably both deserve to perish in the wastes.

Technically, the game is very average, with a dodgy-ish but functional combat system, limited enemy variation, a dull skill progression tree, and extremely linear environments (after the first prison level, everything is quite small as well, possibly rushed out given the number of invisible walls and empty dead ends. The crafting is menu driven, and depends on random pick ups. It's finicky, but ok functionally...but again, essentially pretty boring and tacked-on so they could put "crafting" down as a tag for the game.

So overall, a disappointing experience. It seems the developer is launching a new game about post-apocalyptic Mars and Technomancers...seems basically identical in the premise. I would research it carefully before picking it up...and not bother at all with this one.

The pieces of a good game are here, but they just don't connect. It is frequently difficult to determine what you're supposed to do next. The story jumps around and is nearly impossible to follow. The controls are clunky at best and unusuable at worst.

For the small buget it got, this game is fantastic, i had a blast with the crafting system and the sweet leveling up tree.
The game does fall short on some things but nothing too big.
The story was good, surprisingly good with an ending that depends on a morality system.

I personally, given the buget it had, give it a solid 7/10.

Can't wait for the Technomancer to come out.

I think in many ways this is a good game, it has some decent humor gameplay and an ok story. Its made by the same guys who created "Of Orcs and Men" however while that game was well made and a decently long title Mars WL falls a bit short. It has some parts where the voice acting is so sappy you could pour it over pancakes, abilities are a bit laxed but interesting. The worst though is how the stroy just kinda takes a dump at the end, I mean right at the front door on the carpet. I think they wanted to do more with this title but budget and time constraints reared its ugly head. It will be either hit or miss with most people, but with me I had a good time even though the ending was under whelming and came a little too soon and abruptly. Give it a play but buy it only on sale, I don't think its really worth full price.

Generic... potentially a good story but it's just too generic (not to mention it is a streamlined corridor). One of the last bosses and enemies is actually called "Technomancer Boss" so yeah, as generic as naming a character "Generic NPC"

Pros:
-Difficult fighting, if you're in to that; as in, you'll actually have to try
-Decent specialization trees; you'll have to play to your spec
-Enjoyable story; fairly imaginative, if sometimes a bit overt

Cons:
-I wish it was longer, which is a testament to its enjoyability but a con in its actual gametime

Overall, I'd say it's worth looking into on sale, but not worth paying full price.

A Nice Find [KAMGUSTA's REVIEW]

I wasn't expecting much from this title and instead I got surprised.
I'd call the game a "Third Person Hack and Slash RPG", much like KOTOR or Mass Effect (but not as good, obviously!).
The graphic is a bit outdated (from the Steam screens it seems awesome, but it's not) but it is by no way bad.
Story is fine and you won't wander too much without clues. The biggest downside is the amount of backtracking, really too much (also used for increasing the longevity).
Not a hidden gem, but one of the few games I finished, so it has to have something special.

Best played with Keyboard and Mouse
Recommended Buy Price < 10$
Score 7/10

It's good. Read the other positive reviews.

It is worth £12. It is a reasonable length without being mindnumbingly long (i.e. skyrim). Completed in 27hrs which is slower than most, but I like to take my time and explore.

I got this specifically for it's campy value and voice acting. It certainly delivered there, but what I saw was a sad half-baked atempt at decent storytelling and rpg mechanics. I can't rightfully recommend this game because:
1.It's just plain boring, little reason or motivation to do side quests
2.you'll have your mini-map up the whole game because all the locations look exactly the same and they are confusing
3.OPENING DOORS ARE SKIPPING THE ANIMATION EVERY 30 SECONDS
4.1/3 of the way into the game and you literally have the best weapon and gear, it never improves.
5.Extreme difficulty imbalance, you'll probably just want to play on easy to make it bareable.

Don't get your ♥♥♥ to Mars.

I spent quite some time playing this game, and I really /wanted/ to love it.
The world they've created is really interesting and cool, the character design is good, and the premise is fun. I like the level design, and the character levelling up system is unique and cool.

But despite these positive points, the gameplay quickly becomes repetitive - combat, run around, combat, talk to someone, combat. The combat mechanics are a bit glitchy (maybe the controls would work better with a game-pad?), and when you're playing real-time melee combat, this becomes a big problem quickly.
In the end I simply couldn't be bothered grinding through the quests to find out the rest of the story.

If the same studio were to make another game, I'd certainly take a look, but I would be a little cautious before spending too many Ducats on it.

I'm giving it 2/5 stars, and would only recommend buying it if it's on sale for a few bucks - even at the cheap ticket price of fifteen bucks, it's not polished enough for me to recommend.

I know I may sound like dumbass but this game had really promising start... Who wouldn't like mixing up Prison Break series on Mars?

Tactician fights using techno-abilities and gadgets were supposed to bright action elements, but hit boxes in this game are just frustrating. At some point you will end up getting consistently thrown into enemies chain attacks, which will suck your health to 0 in few seconds. You won't be able to do anything. Game is just hard, you need to dodge like crazy. Is it rewarding our efforts? Thats the biggest No. Plot is simple run-away / get revenge. I dont mind this if it is well executed theme. For most part here cutscenes are not rewarding our efforts since the voice acting and dialogues are really cheap.

As closure graphics are nice, crafting is nice and we can see changes on our equipment. Sound is fine and as I mentioned fighting system might be weird but it is playable. Question is will you find fun with just that?

Though not as good as Bound by Flame in my option Mars: War Logs is still a solid RPG. It's short and the story is kind of bland even by Spider's standards but hey if you a fan of their work and can get on sale it's a good time.

Verdict: Good game with a REALLY kick ♥♥♥ world. I'm looking forward to The Technomancer!

Made my Thursday night into bit fun.

+Story is kinda torn but you still get the topic
+Dodge mechanics works well.
+Skill tree is good but you cannot get masters skills that easily.
+Choices matters.
+2 alternate ending.

-Companions can give you cancurs.
-Secret loots are not that 'secret' repetetive
-Hit boxes can give cancurs too.Speacially mars doges.
-Atmosphere can give you claustrophobia cause of alleys and Mars's yellow air and sand sand sand sand sand sand sand.

Mars: War Logs is a game of potential. The universe created by Spiders is certainly curious but is often let down by the badly written dialogue and pacing of the story, or the sometimes horrendous voice overs.

Graphically it is an appealing game and the environments and music is all there in a solid fashion. The combat is largely enjoyable and has a nice punch behind it, the skill system and crafting mechanics are nice but the lack of variety within loot is a letdown. In the end, Mars: War Logs is an above average game that will certainly be an enjoyable experience for those looking for a nice little third person RPG, and are willing to forgive it for its diamond in the rough state.

This is not the best RPG out there, but I would be lying if I said it is not fun as hell. Combat is smooth, landscapes are gorgeous, and the story isn't too bad either. I'm aware when this game came out it was pretty bad, but they did an excellent job at fixing what needed to be fixed. So many of the negative comments don't apply anymore. However, many have said the combat and crafting system is a rip off from The Witcher 2. I will have to say false. Similar? Without a doubt, but not a rip off. This game takes it much more slow, and the option to use the techromancer abilities makes it its own. And a crafting system is a crafting system. Not much you can do there. Now, my impressions: I love this game. I was constantly entertained from start to finish. I love action RPGs and this game delivered. But not only that, the landscapes were amazing. The towns and such were nice, but you got tired of looking at them after a bit, but when you stare off into the distance, beyond the towns, you saw beauty. They made a boring red planet into something else. If you enjoy a not so hardcore RPG then by all means pick this game up. But maybe wait until a sale. I love the game, but $15 is still a tad high in my opinion, but nonetheless I think this game should be on any RPG lovers game library.

This game reminds me of several titles: Dragon Age 2 (how the maps are confined), Witcher 2 (combat), and Mass Effect series (story/quest branching). For a traditional RPG it's got some things right, but it has its share of problems.

Pros:
1. Tactical combat. Combat gets even more challenging and fun at Extreme difficulty, but at a price...
2. Nice setting and atmosphere. Mars here is like a remnant of some former colony; a fresh change from those high-tech ones. Everything is rusty, red, and make-shift. Put it another way, it's more like an apocalyptic Mars.
3. Your choices matter. People may die/live, quests may be locked/opened, etc... If you like replaying for different endings then this is for you.

Cons:
1. At Extreme difficulty, a bad selection of skills will make the game almost impossible. There seems to be some skills that must be unlocked first, such as Evade, Sneak, etc.
2. No crowd AI. At hubs you may get invovled in battle, but civilians do not react at all, even when the fight is happening right under their noses. This hurts the sense of immersion.
3. Some quest are hidden inside branching conversations and are easily missed if you choose the wrong reply (but you have no idea of the difference). Choose between "just say it!" or "ok ok i got it"?
4. Characters and lore are rather under-developed. For an RPG of this length (30hr for me), you only get to know a few of the characters. Some just pop up with little background info. The romance here is merely a filler.
5. In combat you only have limited control on your companion (only 4 "states"), which sometimes is not that helpful.

Despite the cons, I still enjoy this game a lot, primarilly for its combat and story. If you aren't that picky about graphics and AI and just expect a down-to-earth action RPG, this shouldn't disappoint you.

An imaginative role-playing game, the various pieces never quite come together into a satisfying whole. Its settings is poorly described, even after I read through the in-game journal and the documents on the game's web site. The characters feel shallow and - not helped by poor voice-acting and writing - I never empathized with their plight. Mars is gorgeously rendered, but the detail is only skin-deep; too-few NPCs, quests and maps results in an world that is artificial and empty. The combat and crafting are moderately entertaining but, again, the lack of content hobbles even this; a mere handful of weapons and spells did not give me much to play with. Mars War Log plays very much like a game where the developers had a great idea, but neither the talent nor the ability to bring that idea to fruition.
