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?

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.

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The graphic is a bit outdated (from the Steam screens it seems awesome, but it's not) but it is by no way bad.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

I don't know why this has so many negative reviews. It's not bad at all. Everything it does, it does well.

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.
