"Mars: War logs" is a great game in genral, and with some great factors leading me to give this game a good rating. But with its great upside, it has noticeble downsides with it. I will explain the pros and cons of the game

Pros:

- Enriching, diverse and great combat system
- Fitting music soundtrack
- Great storyline of missions, places and different attitudes in the people you meet
- Great Upgrade/ salvage system within the world.
- Nice volley of powers, tools and attacks during fights to keep the battle interesting

Cons:
- The voice acting in the game is by far laughable.
- Dialogue and writing is just not well done

Besides those 2 things in cons, which are some of the worst ive seen in single player games, it doesnt take away alot of the fun out of the game. I definitelly recommend this game.( 7/10 )

The pluses:
- good story
- interesting setting
- generally interesting characters

The minuses:
- sometimes your character reacts in a way that you wouldn't have chosen if you had had a choice

I played this game on the easy setting, 'cause I wasn't super interested in the combat. I did enjoy the advancement system, though, and every time I felt that I was getting bored with the location, I could get moved to a new one. I had a really good time playing this and would definitely recommend it.

I liked the game A LOT. Personal preference though, as It is visibly cheap.
And in places it really, really shows. But it feels nice, is unique, reminds me of Chronicles Of Riddick.
It is not polished too much, but it is an awesome game at it's core. If you are not easily distracted, I recommend this title.

I just finished playing through the game and found it to be overall an enjoyable experience. It is a Spiders game so you should go into it knowing what you're getting. If you were a fan of their other RPGs (Of Orcs and Men, Game Of Thrones, etc) then you'll probably be able to overlook the simple combat and weird mechanics. The Mars setting is unique for a game of this type, and the game is overall competent enough. The voice acting was terrible but that comes with the Spiders brand as well. The story was decent and had a solid conclusion with two separate endings creating two different final chapters. The world building and the Technomancer idea is unique enough that it's worth checking out but be aware the gameplay is a little janky. Hopefully their followup "Technomancer" will fix some of the gameplay hiccups and give this universe the game it deserves.

Many people write this game off due to the fact that it's a bit... off... not refined or polished but it is not a AAA title so if you manage to overlook its looks, which is tad bit ugly, and somewhat clunky controls it is quite fun, the story is interesting, not to mention there are some twists here and there, there is rudimentry crafting and skill system, interesting... ish... dialogs and characters, so if you manage to get it for a discount price do so, I doubt that you'd regret it...
