Informazioni sul gioco

Arriva il GUERRIERO che dovrà distruggere i nemici della LIBERTÀ! L'eroico Marlow non si è mai tirato indietro, quando si è trovato in situazioni pericolose, ma ora dovrà affrontare la più difficile sfida della sua vita! Capitato quasi per caso in america Centrale, Marlow dovrà sconfiggere una malvagia multinazionale, aiutato da una loquace maschera della morte maya che non ha avuto nessuno con cui parlare per più di 2000 anni. Marlow Briggs prende ispirazione dai più famosi film d'azione, dagli eroi dei fumetti più amati e dai videogame di maggior successo per offrire un'esperienza di gioco che vi terrà con il fiato sospeso dall'inizio alla fine! Combattimenti senza tregua, incredibili acrobazie, favolose ambientazioni esotiche piene di pericoli di ogni genere, inseguimenti mozzafiato e situazioni ad altissimo tasso di adrenalina sono gli elementi che rendono questo gioco spettacolare ed entusiasmante!

Il gioco che non ti aspetti.
Sebbene in fin dei conti sia un clone di God of War e similia, la cura che gli sviluppatori hanno messo in questo titolo è sorprendente, nonostante in alcuni momenti tradisca la sua natura di "indie". La storia è banale (pur simpatica) ma è un pretesto per un turbinio di azione, trappole e esplosioni in pieno stile b-movie che durerà per tutto il gioco, senza mai un momento di pausa per tirare il fiato. Il combat system è, nella sua classicità di genere, molto ben studiato, con una buona differenziazione tra i vari tipi di arma e delle combo appaganti e animate alla grande (una gioia usare e "sentire" la variante pesante, chi ha provato sa). Un po' deludente invece la varietà di nemici, anche se non mancheranno momenti particolarmente goduriosi contro alcuni boss e mid-boss.
Graficamente c'è poco da eccepire: per essere una produzione a basso costo la production value è a livelli stellari, e alcuni livelli non sfigurano neanche se confrontati con alcuni giochi tripla A.
Menzione d'onore per il doppiaggio, veramente eccezzionale e azzeccato, sopratutto per quanto riguarda il nostro compagno maschera che più di una volta strapperà il sorriso con i suoi battibecchi con Marlow.
Che dire, mi sono sentito non poco in colpa per averlo preso a prezzo scontatissimo ma ahimè, non ne avevo mai sentito parlare prima e ammetto di essermici imbattuto quasi "per caso", ed è un vero peccato che un gioco simile sia passato così in sordina.
Non fate il mio stesso errore, giocateci, godetevelo e passate parola!

Every once and a while there comes a game so revolutionary, so full of ambition and creativity and with such flawless execution that they forever change the medium and shape it for years to come. They are the games that we remember decades after their release, and that continue to be cited as inspiration for new games long since we first revered at their brilliance. And then we have Marlow Briggs.

Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death is not a revolutionary game; it does little if anything unique borrowing heavily from games of yore without ever outdoing them in its own right. It's not the most polish, it's production values are noticeably low, and has some truly aggravating design decisions. But none of this matters because despite being formulaic and shallow Marlow Briggs is unquestionably a blast to play. If ever there was such a thing as a B-game this is it, and what ridiculous amounts of fun it is.

As the curtain rises we find Marlow Briggs, aka "the man with large hands", arriving to visit his archaeologist girlfriend on a digsite she has been working at lately. Unfortunately, as is usually the case, the operation is in fact being run by a maniacal psychopath possessing godlike magic powers and an army of mercenaries to back him up. Marlow doesn't like this, but before he can take three step towards the door he's sent on a one way trip to Xibalba and his girlfriend kidnapped. Cue flashing lightning and a talking mask and Marlow is reborn as the sacred warrior, hero of prophecy destined to save the sacred land that has been disturbed by the militias presence.

It should be noted that all of this plays out in the span of about 60 seconds, at which point you are tossed straight into the action. This isn't a game that takes itself seriously; not remotely. The plot is absolutely absurd and the dialog cheesy beyond compare, but Marlow succeeds because it knows it's silly and revels in being as self-aware and goofy as possible as it jumps from setpiece to setpiece with little regard to exposition or the mounting continuity errors. This is a game that wants you to laugh with it not at it, with excellent (for what it is) writing and spot on delivery that made it impossible for me not to enjoy myself, grinning the whole way through.

When Marlow and the Mask aren't cracking jokes they're smashing in skulls. It's impossible to ignore so to put it bluntly: this is a God of War clone. Right down to the distinctive way you open chests- er, collect skulls, it plays identically to Sony Santa Monica's lovechild but that really isn't a bad thing. While it isn't as refined as that series, this is a comparable action game with some highly satisfying combat and impressive bossfights. It's nothing new, but it works well for the game and more than solid, with my only complaint being a large amount of overpowered enemies and occasionally getting locked into an animation.

Mixed together with the melee arena combat are a plethora of action movie moments such as shooting down helicopters with a mounted turret, and some light platforming and puzzle elements. The variety is great and helped alleviate much of the monotony that otherwise would have occurred from a strictly combat focus through the 6-7 hour campaign.

While it won't win any graphics awards, this is actually a rather decent looking title. The environments in particular have a lot of detail put into them, and when the camera pans out for a vista it's a gorgeous site. For a budget title it's pretty impressive, but what I thought was most clever was how instead of using costly animation for the cutscenes, the majority are instead done as freeze frame 3D stills that the camera then slowly sifts through, using dynamic angles and purposely placed obstructions to allow for the scene without you actually seeing them do it. It's a neat idea and I have to applaud the developers for their ingenuity, even if it's a little jarring at times.

I'm not sure how many more ways I can say it at this point; Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death is plain uncomplicated fun. In the same way a dumb summer blockbuster is enjoyable, Marlow doesn't need to be original or perfectly polished to be entertaining. It's a nonsensical adventure that I think almost anyone could enjoy if they can give it a chance, and quite frankly is some of the most fun I've had with any video game in a long time.

Ok lets start by saying this is no "GOD OF WAR",has the same sort of gameplay and even the same style of weapons and abilities,BUT and i say BUT thats where it stops (dont think that KRATOS swears as much as MARLOW).To be honest the idea of the mask bringing MARLOW back to life reminds me of the same thing that happened in the latest incarnation of the SPLATTER HOUSE franchise.
So why would you play this game if you have played those,well simple really even though the game hase'nt had as much money thrown at it-it is still a really solid game and deserves your time if you like this sort of game.
The graphics look nice,the voice overs are good (sure the main bad guy is voiced by LO PAN from big trouble in little china) and the music in game also does its job perfectly.
The game plays out like a B movie classic and thats a good thing,many a time you will hear a one liner come out of MARLOWS mouth and plenty of times you will laugh at the in game jokes.
The mask is the best character in game and between it and MARLOW they form a good partnership and come the end of the game its like you were watching a sort of twilight zone twisted version of LETHAL WEAPON.
I will say that this is another game with not much replay value,do everything in game and power up completely and you wont feel short changed (bar a few mistakes and tough challenges the whole amount of time i have garnered on this game was actually playing time).
I would reccomend this game and just hope that the "ITS NOT GOD OF WAR IS IT" doesnt put of to many people,as that ending just needs an explanation and a continuation,so come on KRATOS move over as MARLOW BRIGGS WANTS YOUR HEAD MAN.
