Because of some of the comments in the forum I gave this a try.
It is good I did.
You are on Mars without oxygen problems, colonized, more or less. Think of it as just a sand desert world and you get the idea.
You are playing in 3rd person and you have during the normal game only one NPC in your party which always cares himself for his armor and weapon. You only decide the way they fight. I always put them to "defensive".
The story is understandable and good. The side missions don't look like side missions, it is just so that you are in a situation and can do some things. So I did everything I saw which I could do because I WANTED to do it. There is no "oh my god, another one of these side missions, AGAIN", nope. You just play the game and see the story and do what you want.
The fights are fair and sometimes you have to do them more than once until you get them done.
But the fights are fun. (And there is a quick save, yeah.)
You have to decide if you kill the guys or not, you decide after each fight
You don't have 1000 variants how to fight, but enough to not make it boring. And I just liked the different ways. Could not decide which one I like more, switched all the time.
First attack with stealth for the fast first "kill", a bit of rolling and attacking from behind, breaking guards, throwing hand grenades and... ups, sorry guards, did I forget to mention the mines I put down in stealth mode before?
After that a bit of magic, back to melee, win and loot.
Then perhaps changing armor or weapon (that is all you equip) or upgrading one of the two.
Or handcrafting some grenades, mines or ammo?
I even had sex with one of the girls. Not like in Witcher, just so you know had it. And I liked girl even more after that.
She is a bit weird but really nice. I like her. I am weird too, so everything is ok.
And each time she asks "can I do something for you?" you remember that one time and think, man, where is the dialog option for ... you know? ;)
It took me 15 hours to complete the game.
Because the game is a bit repetitive after some hours this is really enough.
I liked the story, I liked the fights and now, after the finish, I am contended.
This is for sure not for everyone, and can't even imagine what people will like it,
but if you can get it for cheap and like stories and fighting and just do not want to
read a book today, give this a try. It IS worth it.
