MARTE PARTE BENE MA SOFFRE TROPPO I LIMITI TECNICI, AMBIENTAZIONI MONOTONE E DOPPIAGGIO NON ESALTANTE

Gli Spiders ci illudono, le premesse per un epopea marziana nei primi minuti sembrano esserci tutte: il pianeta rosso con atmosfera cyberpunk è stato colto da un cataclisma che ha interrotto le comunicazioni con la Terra e la mancanza di rifornimenti ha scatenato una guerra interna tra 2 gilde per controllare le scarse riserve d'acqua. Aggiungeteci un narratore (così diverso dal nostro personaggio giocabile) giovane ed indifeso che illustra la situazione con occhi colmi di speranza e agonia per essersi ritrovato in qualcosa più grande di lui e le vostre aspettative potrebbero varcare oltre i sogni per un colossal ambientato su Marte, sempre sperato e mai arrivato.

C'erano molte potenzialità che avrebbero dovuto essere sostenute da un budget decisamnete superiore. La storyline è buona e coerente, senza buchi narrativi, però non approfondisce nè si inoltra troppo nel contesto del mondo marziano. Viviamo con un ritmo lento solo alcuni elementi chiave della guerra in atto e potremo persino cambiare con le nostre azioni alcune situazioni; ma il titolo non riesce a catturaci mai completamene. Peccato perchè anche diverse missioni secondarie erano state ben orchestrate toccando temi più maturi dei soliti oggetti, dichiarazioni da consegnare, ecc..visti e rivisti negli action-rpg.

Il gameplay presenta 3 rami molto interessanti che nascondono più di quello che di primo acchito mostrino; pur non presentando meccaniche molto profonde. Gli sviluppatori hanno peccato nel non incoraggiare il giocatore a provare le buone meccaniche atipiche (ricordano alcuni gdr tattici a turni) che avevano partorito a causa di nemici non troppo diversificati e un level design decisamente sottotono che invogliano la pigrizia.
Il ramo più interessante è quello del tecnomante che si sblocca solo nel 2° dei 3° capitoli in cui il gioco è articolato e si può portare a termine il gioco senza svilupparlo affatto; il chè è assurdo viste le capacità del protagonista.
In pratica il nostro Roy, interessato da eterocromia delle iridi, può portare a termine i suoi scontri facilmente con lo spezzaguardia e l'arma da taglio con la maggior parte dei nemici e in caso di mischie numerose può usare la schivata che a volte si infrange contro ostacoli apparentemente invisibili causati da un level design mediocre.
Contro i tecnomanti può usare tranquillamente l'efficacissima sparachiodi. Se vi limitate dunque a queste abilità vincerete tranquillamente ma vi perdereste tante opzioni interessanti.

C'è un interessante e semplice sistema di crafting per armi e vestiario che modifica le statistiche. E' presente anche una ulteriore lista di capacita da sviluppare (oltre ai 3 rami) alcune delle quali dipenderanno dalla vostra attitudine (se siete stati crudeli estraendo un prezioso fluido dal corpo dei nemici uccidendoli vi saranno precluse alcune possibilità). Il fluido è una merce di scambio molto preziosa.

Comparto tecnico sottotono: assenza di salti che avrebbero potuto sopperire agli ostacoli invisibili, privo di effetti particolari eccetto finte nubi di sabbia scriptate, inutili animazioni attivate ad ogni porta attraversata (considerate che avviare le missioni secondarie comporta il backtracking e capirete quanto odiose diventino), mappe di gioco piccole e a compartimenti stagni che rovinano l'immedesimazione.

Comparto sonoro appena sufficiente, con un doppiaggio inglese scarsuccio e una traduzione italiana non eccezionale.

Comparto grafico monotematico all'interno di ogni capitolo e decisamente troppo monocromatico; assenza di varietà e ridotta esplorazione degli ambienti. Texture in bassa definizione, interni più curati degli esterni e modellazione dei personaggi buona, meno nelle animazioni. Su Marte dovrebbe essere un piacere muoversi nelle locations, qui non si avverte nulla.

Mars: War Logs sarà interessante per chi adora gli action-rpg non complessi con una buona trama; oppure per chi è affascinato dal pianeta rosso. Tutto sommato è un gioco piacevole ma esistono migliori esponenti del genere.

Mars War Logs è un RPG sulla falsa riga di Mass Effect in cui spesso ci si troverà a fare delle scelte che si ripercuteranno nel proseguimento della storia.

Graficamente il gioco non è malvagio; le sabbie rossastre faranno da sfondo per tutta la durata dell'avventura (d'altronde siamo su Marte) e i personaggi principali sono comunque ben realizzati. Alcune ambientazioni però risulteranno ripetitive e la maggior parte degli NPC saranno veramente simili tra loro. Sono presenti diverse opzioni grafiche che
comunque non daranno peso ad un hardware recente. Purtroppo è presente qualche bug grafico come ad esempio i nemici che una volta sconfitti restano incastrati nel terreno di gioco ma niente che renda ingiocabile l'esperienza di gioco.

A livello di sonoro abbiamo un doppiaggio esclusivamente in inglese (ma con sottotitoli in italiano) abbastanza buono e poche musiche che faranno da sfondo all'avventura. Niente di memorabile ma nemmeno da dimenticare.

La giocabilità di Mars è affidabile sia all'accoppiata mouse & tastiera che al sempreverde Controller per Xbox 360. Entrambe le soluzioni risultano soddisfacenti e il gioco ricorda continuamente i tasti da premere per l'esecuzione di un'azione.A tal proposito segnalo che qualora il controller non venisse riconosciuto basterà cambiarne la porta USB per risolvere il problema.

La longevità di Mars si assesta intorno alle dieci ore per completare la storia principale ma ci sono due possibili finali e diverse missioni secondarie che possono tranquillamente raddoppiare o triplicare l'esperienza di gioco.

La storia invoglia a proseguire (e a fare delle scelte, da qui la somiglianza con Mass Effect) nonostante i combattimenti siano piatti e ripetitivi (tanto da trasformare Mars in una sorta di picchiaduro durante queste sezioni) e spesso sia possibile vincerli premendo unicamente un tasto. In ogni caso il gioco offre alcune abilità speciali attivabili (facendo però attenzione ai nemici che cercheranno di impedirlo). Non sarà necessario fare "farming" di nemici per completare il titolo dato che la maggioranza dei punti esperienza sarà ottenuta completando le missioni principali (e qualcuna secondaria).

Nonostante qualche difetto Mars resta comunque un titolo discreto da acquistare (e giocare) se piacciono il genere e le ambientazioni extraterrestri.

It is no masterpiece, but there is some fun to be had with this one. Don't go into it expecting the world, and you should have a decent time.

Personally, I found this game very under-rated. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The combat system was fun to use and adapt to and can make your character look like a total badass if you've got it down, or a blind 10 year old waving a stick if you don't. Hell, maybe you're even a badass blind 10 year old with a stick. In any event, I found the combat very satisfying. As for characters, Roy (The protagonist) was great. I loved the way he sounds, his word choice no matter what option you choose, and just the way he lookes (having a main character with heterochromia just looks cool). I also liked the other characters and how you can influence them and converse. And as far as weaponry goes, you get a huge selection of makeshift, modifiable weapons and explosives.
I can see why some people might have less praise for this game than myself though, it isn't a typical game like many of us are used to. It's not like any shooter here, and not even that similar to other RPGs like Fallout or The Elder Scrolls. Nonetheless, I would recommend this game to anyone looking for a good game with a good story, unique combat, and well rounded (and yet somewhat mysterious) characters.

I really want to like the game as I think its one of those rough gems out there. But the repetitions, corridor like levels and back and forth quest frustrates me.

Although steam says I played it for 12 hours, Im only halfway thru the game as I always fall asleep while playing this. I dont know if I will ever finish it but as of right now I have other games more enjoyable to play.

"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 )

I finished my first game from Spiders.

At first, I bought this game with other during a summer sale, then I left it aside: This autumn 2014, there was so many expected releases that I prefere to play other things, like blockbusters and big-prod games.
When after their release some of those 'most-expected' games appeared to be expansive slot machines without real next gen innovation. I opened my list of old 'to-do games' and went to Mars.

What I discovered there on Mars was not a 'game of the year', but remain for me an honest and original RPG, at a good price.

+ atmosphere = music, sound effects, artwork, dialogs, light and dust animations, levels and background are coming very well together. The game managed to get you the taste of this rusty Mars of Bradbury or mad-max like post-apocalyptic background.
+ scenario = Mars is an abandoned colony from an Earth who failed the terraforming and simply left his colonists/workers behind to die in the dust. Technology became religion (Mars of 40k), water became more valuable than gold and oil put together, and mutants are both superstitious slaves and relics of a mysterious first 'war'.. The main/side quests are making good illustrations of a rich background, unfortunatly without special revelations on it. (budget limitation?*)
+ Characters/dialog: morphing, voice casting, etc.: all NPC and allies have a particular personality, story and place in the scenario. Funny choices and dialogs. The bad reputation gives you some nice situation of intimidation.
+ RPG Inventory= which is not as complex or labyrinthic like in other RPGs (which are mostly fantasy RPGs and not SF), but fun and easy to explore and try out.
+ Scavenger/upgrade system: original and well designed
+ Combat system: not perfect, but I get the feeling of table RPGs when you have to think about all your stuff and upgrades and levels.

- *like it was explained on the forum, they don't had enough money to expand the game like they wanted in the first place. Yes, there are too few bosses or real cinematics, some bonus like artworks to gain with achievements, and the separate Epilogues could had been more 'customised'. But the game remain coherent.
- FOV: especially in fights and some maps, you have to choose carefully the place/corner of the map who you want to fight, otherwise your characters can disapear from the screen and get kicked by invisible enemies. (there is already a fix from the dev in the forum to modify the FOV)
- too easy: especially with bad reputation (when you kill the wounded): you get intimidation which is nice, but also very quickly all the best upgrades for weapons and material (Difficulty=normal).
- not very long (3 chapters) but can be replayed with a lot of side quests.

IMHO:
- if you like SF, RPGs and Mars, get curious and build your own opinion

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.

The game is too short. It's a little shallow but has a good story and interesting characters. I would love to see a bigger version with more options in a sequel. The Sci-Fi reality is really immersive and the world ideas are great.

If you like steampunk if you not "crysis_generation_kid" aka don't care so much about graphics try it when it will be on sale. For me that were nice few hours with nostalgia about time when HL2 and Riddick come out and it were kind of wow.

Despite many negative reviews from critics, and despite some flaws, for the most part I enjoyed this game and thought it was solid. The story takes place in a gritty, dystopian, almost post-apoc setting and spans 3 chapters. There are a lot of sidequests and character interactions, and the game tends to alternate between big open areas and linear levels, which in my opinion provided a nice change pace.

Perhaps what I liked the most was the levelling and the combat. The fighting was incredibly fun, a little awkward at first, but easy to get used to. And the customization of your weapon and armour is great. You get to find various tools and crafting parts that you can use on your gear to give it additional bonuses of your choice. The levelling had 3 different mastery trees - combat, renegade (support abilities like healing and stealth), and technomancy (electrical powers). The levelling happened very frequently, which was great too, since you didn't have to wait for ages to get to the skills you've had your eyes on.

The story and setting are pretty interesting. I personally found chapters 1 and 2 to be brilliant, but chapter 3 fell flat on its face. It almost felt as though the game was rushed at the end. What was most interesting perhaps is how at the end of chapter 2 you get a choice of split paths to join one of the 2 factions, which changes some things in chapter 3, but ultimately you end up visiting the exact same locations regardless of which faction you go with. The premise of split paths for the final chapter is fantastic, but the execution resulted in a diluted experience. Going with the Resistance at least was a half-decent attempt at a conclusion that presented some more moral choices down the line. But going with the general felt like it was added into the game at the very last minute just for the sake of having this split path feature.

The game also had 3 romance options in it, but this too felt rather lacking and devoid of much dialogue. A few other NPCs felt like they should've gotten more screen time than they actually did, like the bounty hunter friend of the main character. But apart from that, most characters were rather interesting.

Overall I'd recommend this game. It's a decent sci-fi cyberpunk RPG and I was immersed for the duration of playing it, even going as far as trying out both story paths for its somewhat disappointing conclusion.

Like all RPGs by Spiders Studios, you will at first be impressed with how good it looks for a title by such a small company. After you play it, you will realize that that is really all it has going for it.

While it does do a good job of getting you interested in the story, it seems to quickly lose focus of said story and then make you feel like you're just being dragged along. My other huge complaint is the combat which is really just the same repetitive scenario over and over again where you get attacked by several mobs, blind one, counter the attack of the next, beat on the third, run from any others and slowly kill off a group one at a time. That or find the infinite serum exploit unintentionally and use it to craft a ton of grenades and breeze through the game. They say the reputation makes a difference but it honestly has such a tiny impact on it that you might as well just go good for the store discount.

Pros:
Looks good at first
Story-driven
Upgrading armor and weapons changes their appearance

Cons:
Boring and repetitive combat
Stealth is almost worthless
Story falls apart
Crafting is very very limited
One gun in the whole game with no upgrades
All enemies behave identically.

On the surface, and after a first impression, this game does not seem to stand out all that magnificently. However, it is still a very well put together game and fun to play, once you get the hang of it. Lots of good elements from other games of the past, reminds me in many ways of Knights of the Old Republic. Not an 'open-world' game but you still have some freedom to poke around in the corners a little bit, and there is more to do than strictly follow the story. This game also had more RPG depth than I had anticipated. There is quite a vast skill tree and many different approaches to how one plays the game. In addition there is a good variety of equipments, many of which can be modified in various ways to become more powerful.

The story and the writing itself is not exactly too wild or interesting, but it isn't overly shallow or lacking either. And once you get a little ways into the game the combat picks up quite a bit too. Overall this game is a great game to buy and to play, perhaps not one to buy at full price but still one to consider and definitely worth the cost

I'm happy that i decided to try out this game, although it had mixed reviews.
I recommend this game, as i wasn't bored with it at all during my playtime. This game is pretty much a standard action rpg, designed with consoles in mind. Story is pretty nice, characters are interesting, but the setting is great. I really loved the brown, postapocalyptic Mars landscapes. You have customization of your weapon/armor, you can craft various things and advance your skills in three trees (pretty much stealth, craft / melee / magic). The game itself is pretty linear, there is no open world, and most of the locations are narrow, so if you expect open world gameplay, pass on the game.
What i really loved is the amount of time the playthrough takes: 15 hours. It is ideal in my opinion, the game does not get boring and does not end too quickly.
The game is not ideal at all, as every aspect of it lacks something (limited options of crafting, skills, choices etc.), but it does not make it a bad game.

So, if you don't like corridor like levels, lack of open world and a bit limited options, pass on the game.
However, if you don't mind these things, want a game that will take you about 15 hours and love the setting, try it out, i recommend it.

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...

This game... where do i start?

Well this game is amazing ... alright great start now i just got to keep it going.

this game made by Spider Company is amazing, now it does have its flaws, because it was made by a small company on a small budget its lacking in some aspects like seeing the same generic people modles with the same idle animations so for me that kind of wrecks it but if you get past that your golden.

Combat is so good i love it, the tech tree? Amazing, crafting? hell yeah crafting, voice acting... lets skip that (because it was pretty terrible to be honest.)

If you love walking and bound by flame you will love this. 3 an a half stars from me.
