I was looking for a cyberpunk game to play and this rolled across my lap. There is a karma system but I didn’t see it come into play too much. The crafting system was a bit strange, useful but not exactly a game changer. The only real annoying part I can say was that combat took a while to get used to and the camera, even when locked on to an enemy, didn’t cooperate in a useful way. The world building was done well though and I finished the game twice wanting even more plot.

I recommend this game if it's on sale only.

This is a short story of a game with an interesting world that the game itself doesn't do much justice. Uniteresting set pieces and a general everything is rust or mud color scheme take away from it, the morality system is broken but at least adds something to it to desperately try to make work. The combat is fun when it works but as soon as their are more than 3 enemies or it's a large horde of those damned mole rats it tends to just go to ♥♥♥♥ until you throw a grenade. The voice acting is tolerable but has it's atrocious moments and they don't have much in terms of awesome cosmetics. You also get stuck with basically 1 crappy ranged weapon and pipes of sorts as the end game goal weapon to upgrade. The side quests are easily missable in a few cases and don't clearly lay out when you can totally miss one, despite all this however I didn't completely hate my time in this game, it had a lot of potential and I enjoy the core concepts(more or less)

If you don't mind looking up quest info from time to time and the tedious loot and craft system that is manditory for success the game does satisfy for some reason and is worth picking this title up on sale.

My friend owns this and Library shared it with me, I wasn't given a free copy by the developer or anything like that.

It's a very short game but has a very interesting story. Finally finished the playthrough even though i bought the game yesterday would definitely recommend getting this game during a sale too short tbh. Though it is very fun and if you are looking for a game to play that could keep you occupied until the technomancer comes out then get it. one thing i didnt like about the game is that once you leave an area to go to another you can't go back.

Rating 6.5/10
Overview: Third Person RPG

The Good:

+ 3 skill trees allowing you to specialize in combat, range, stealth, abilities etc. You also get character traits for further customization.

+ Find items scattered around the world or loot it off fallen enemies to craft stronger weapons and armor.

+ The game has plenty of side quests, many side quests have different ways of solving them. Depending on the dialogue options you choose, and how you resolve certain situations
more side quests could become available later on.

+ Similar to Witcher 2, the game forces you to make a choice in the main story which changes the story and how things play out.

+ Interesting story and setting

The Average:

The combat starts out really bad but gets better slowly as you level up and improve your skills. You have one button for attack, dodge, block and break enemy guard. Attacking enemies never really feels satisfying and most combat situations revolve around you hitting an enemy once or twice and then rolling out of the way over and over again until you get a clear shot to attack. The worst part however is the camera, as you are fighting one enemy, two or three other enemies will attack you off screen. Get in too close to a wall and it becomes even harder to locate enemies. You can also 'lock-on' to an enemy causing the camera to focus in on them which sometimes actually makes things worse. It isn't until you really start to invest a lot of skill points into your character that combat becomes more playable.

The game features a basic morality system that grants you some extra character abilities depending if you are good or bad. This is determined whether you let enemies live or die after a fight. It doesn't change a whole lot and other than a few character abilities, morality has very little impact on gameplay, dialogue or story.

The Bad:

- The voice acting and dialogue are bad. Every line is read without emotion or feeling. It feels like they handed the voice actors a script and said 'read this' and called it a day.

- The graphics are bland and boring. Red and brown seem to be the primary colors and the textures even set to high look terrible. The overall presentation and UI all feel substandard.

Conclusion:

A game that has everything you want in an RPG but lacks a lot of polish in almost all areas of gameplay. I certainly had fun with this game, enough to complete it twice and collect all the achievements but don't go into this game with high expectations.

The story is neat but the combat is painfully awful and there is too much backtracking, you have to scavange the same places so many times it is sickening!

For a 15 dollar game, this seems about right. It's not AAA material, but it tells its story. There are plenty of technical issues to take wih the game, but again, for a budget game, you get what you pay for.

The writing is heavily thematic and sometimes a little predictable. In a way, this game reminds me of a grittier, darker, knights of the old republic, but don't expect KotOR's polish. The main draw here is the world building and story. You have to look past the imperfections of the game to appreciate this, but it's definetly there.

For the money, I'd absolutely recommend it, and I am looking forward to The Technomancer.

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.

Classic Spiders RPG:
nice story, the gameplay isn't really polished as always, but it's funny enough.
It isn't a AAA production, so it would be stupid to complain about poor graphics or level design, even if it's a low budget game, I'd say it's totally worth it if you like simple RPGs with a nice story

I recomend this if you can get it on the cheap and are into rpgs/storys that are different.

The game looks and feels really low budget or dated now, has lots of empty space and most NPC's are just set dressing. That being said I played it all the way through to see what they wanted to do with the story and world they were creating.

I enjoyed it

A good scifi RPG for the (heavily discounted now) price and size.
Seen far worse games than this get better reviews from established gaming sites
Fair graphics, nice story, nice gameplay
I would have prefered it more open world but I guess this has to do with budget restrictions
I would give it a 7-7.5

Anfangs ungewohnt entwickelte sich dieses Spiel zu einer interessanten Story. Man hat viele Möglichkeiten, seinen Charakter zu entwickeln, ebenso ist die Geschichte und deren Verlauf vielfältig.
Die Steuerung ist gewohnt, Kämpfe werden per KlicknKick und Taktikmenü ausgeführt. Der Schwierigkeitsgrad ist jederzeit anpassbar. Und schon auf Normal sind Kämpfe eine gute Herausforderung.
Zum Thema Crafting kann man sagen, das es einfach gehalten ist. Neue Gegenstände erstellen ist anscheinend nicht möglich. Jedoch das Verbessern von Waffen und Rüstung. Und das herstellen von Medikits oder sonstigen "Stuff" ist möglich.
Mars: War Logs ist interessant und spannend. Wenn man wert auf eine gute Story legt, ist dieses Spiel auf jeden Fall ein Genuss.
Vom Ablauf her gestaltet es sich teilweise eintönig. Laufe hierhin und hole das und töte jenen. Jedoch kommen immer wieder Wendungen hinein, die doch zum weiterspielen animieren.

Eigentlich eine verdammt gute Spielidee. Das Problem hier ist, dass das Spiel endet wo man eigentlich erwarten würde, dass es erst richtig losgeht. Man wird vom Spielende derart überrumpelt, dass man fassungslos 5 Minuten vor dem Bildschirm sitzt und die Credits anstarrt. Man bekommt das Gefühl, den Entwicklern wäre das Geld ausgegangen und haben das Spiel in der Mitte der Storyentwicklung released...

Als Indieentwickler (Grotesque Tactics, Holy Avatar) hab ich immer wieder Lust Independent Spiele zu spielen. Nun gut, Mars ist nicht wirklich ein Indiespiel, aber es gehört trotzdem zu den kleineren Produktionen, bei denen klar ist, dass ein kleines Team mit weniger Geld ein großes RPG entwickelt.
Hier also das französische Spiders Team, ca in der Größenordnung von Piranha Bytes (Gothic, Risen)
Natürlich führt dies (im vergleich z.b. zu Bioware RPGs) irgendwo zu Defiziten, die man aber auf unterschiedliche Art und Weise kompensieren kann. Spiders hat das geschafft.
Wenn man also mehr durch die wohlwollende Indie Brille guckt, merkt man aber, dass hier einiges großartiges Erschaffen wurde.
Das Spiel hat auch ein bisschen was von Gothic und Risen,natürlich auch mit ihrem eigenen Charme. Den französischen Background merkt man meiner Meinung nach auch ein bisschen aufgrund der Erzählweise. Die Stimmen der Protagonisten sind sehr atmosphärisch. Und überhaupt Atmosphäre wird hier recht groß geschrieben.
Ich mag das Kampfsystem und das Skillen dieser Fähigkeiten auf jeden Fall. Hab auf Schwierigkeitsgrad schwer gespielt und da gehts ordentlich zur Sache. Später musste ich wieder auf normal spielen, weil einige Kämpfe echt hart gebalanced sind. Dafür wirds tatächlich nie zu leicht.
Ein Nachteil ist, dass das Spiel für ein RPG vergleichsweie Linear ist. Ungefähr Final Fantasy 13 linear, denn auch hier hatte man das Problem, dass man bestimmte Gegner nicht umgehen konnte und den Kampf jetzt bestehen muss (!) und sich nicht erst anderweitig verbessern kann.
Das RPG hat defnitiv seine Stärken, es hätte allerdings auch noch mehr Potential gehabt in Sachen Story und Beziehungen.
Manches von der Story bleibt leider unbeantwortet oder oberflächlich. Es gibt immer gute Ansätze, aber es fehlt so das Staunen oder Überrascht werden in der Story. Hauptsächlich hab ich das Spiel wegen den spannenden Kämpfen und der Charentwicklung gespielt und die Geschichte als Mittel angesehen.

Trotzdem bietet das Spiel u.a. eine Fraktionswahl, Crafting System, unterschiedliche partymitglieder, ein paar Beziehungsmomente (eher rudimentär), einige interessante Charaktere (die verrückte Mary, der Junge innocence , ein badass als Partymitglied) und paar nett gemachte Bossgegner.
Bei den Quests wurde solides erschaffen ohne aber zu glänzen. 20 Spielstunden sind ungefähr drin mit ein paar Möglichkeiten der Widerspielbarkeit.

Insgesamt würde ich dem Spiel ein 7/10 von geben und es definitiv für den Preis empfehlen. Jetzt hab ich deutlich mehr Bock auf ihr Nachfolger RPG Bound by Flame.

Die Story ist ganz gut, obwohl ich persönlich finde, dass da auch mehr gegangen wäre - "ausbaufähig" wäre eigentlich die beste Bezeichnung. Es ist eine wirklich gute Geschichte, aber irgendwie hatte ich nach dem Spielen den Eindruck, dass noch so viel mehr gegangen wäre.

Das Handling in den Kämpfen kann man meiner Meinung nach noch ein wenig verbessern.

Alles in allem macht das Spiel aber Spaß. Im Sommer habe ich einen Zehner dafür gezahlt und ich habe mich gut unterhalten gefühlt. Auch die aktuellen 15 Euro sind für mein Empfinden okay.
