Despre joc

A new breed of WARRIOR returns, committed to destroying the enemies of FREEDOM
When ONE angry man, has a world to protect - There is only ONE future – HIS OWN

No-nonsense hero Marlow never shied away from danger or trouble. But now he faces his ULTIMATE challenge. After crash-landing in Central America, he has an industrial evil to defeat whilst bound to an ancient Mayan Death Mask who’s had no-one to talk to for 2000 years. Another day at the office only this time Marlow is PUSHED TO THE LIMIT , his sweetheart has been abducted, the bad guys are making up their own rules and only one man can judge them – and EXECUTE THE SENTENCE .

Fearlessly fighting through Mayan temples and towering valleys, monstrous machinery, nothing, but nothing, will stand in the way of this bad ass warrior, his girl and the crushing of all opposition.

They told him to go to HELL, he was DEAD ready!!!

With cliffhanger over the top action and cinematic gameplay, Marlow Briggs takes inspiration from the best of blockbuster films, comic book heroes, and action games with its focus on relentless high-octane combat, exotic and danger filled environments and epic set pieces.

• Fight the enemies of FREEDOM with stacks of awesome combos and magic abilities,
• Single handedly destroy HUNDREDS of enemies
• Deploy MIGHTY weapons of destruction
• Leap out of HUGE EXPLOSIONS in slow motion
• Reveal the DEADLY secrets of the Mayans
• Save the ENTIRE planet

In ultimele zile am reusit sa pun mana pe un joc care m-a atras, mai mult din curiozitate, in ultimele saptamani, cand am vazut niste filmulete de prezentare pe Youtube. Este vorba despre Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death, un joc de actiune hack and slash, 3rd person in stilul God of War, sau Darksiders 2, produs de ZootFly si distribuit de 505 Games. Imaginile din prezentare aratau bine, dar un lucru mi-a dat de gandit, pretul scazut al jocului, de 14 euro, mult sub media acestor tipuri de jocuri. Impresia de la inceput a fost ca e un joc slabut, dupa intro, dar ♥♥♥ a inceput gameplay-ul mi-am schimbat opinia. Este un joc extraordinar, face toti banii, chiar si mai mult si inca ma tine conectat.

Povestea

Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death este ca un film de actiune, povestea este asemanatoare ♥♥ productii cinematografice de categoria B, filme ce au in centru actori precum Jason Statham sau Silvester Stallone. Marlow Briggs, personajul principal, este un pompier musculos ajuns in America Centrala intr-o vizita la iubita lui, cercetatoare arheologica. Cei doi au parte de doar cateva minute impreuna, caci seful sitului, un psihopat avid de putere, o forteaza pe domnisoara sa lucreze in gasire unor artefacte care ar trebui sa-i confere puteri magice. Pana acum totul este clasic filmului de actiune, insa actiunea ia o intorsatura spre fantastic cand Marlow este ucis ♥♥ o arma descoperita in sit, fapt care trezeste la viata Mask of Death (Masca Mortii), un spirit razboinic, care il reinvie pe Briggs, anuntandu-l ca el este “cel ales” si-i confera puteri supraomenesti. Eroul nostru pleaca in cautarea iubitei, distrugand totul in cale si invatand abilitati noi ♥♥ fiecare misiune indeplinita. Totul pare un cliseu pana acum, dar cei de la ZootFly au reusit sa salveze povestea prin intruchiparea intr-un mod plin de umor a personajelor. Marlow are replici haioase in legatura ♥♥ tot ce se intampla, un umor simplu si bun si auto-critica. Masca, care il urmeaza peste tot este un fel de Jim Carrey, fiind foarte vorbareata si plina de replici taioase, ca deh, n-a mai vorbit ♥♥ nimeni de 2000 de ani si se plictisea.

Gameplay

Avand in vedere ca Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death este un joc de actiune hack and slash trebuie sa ne asteptam sa avem la dispozitie o multime de taste menite sa execute multe miscari si scheme de actiune. Asa este, dar totul este intuitiv. Eu am jucat si pe tastatura si am testat si controllerul, pentru ca este disponibil in joc. De pe PC este relativ simplu, poti folosi doar tastatura sau combinatie tastatura + mouse, eu am ales ce-a de-a doua varianta, iar tastele de care am avut nevoie au fost WASD + E, F si SPACE si numerele cand schimbi armele, iar din mouse am executat schemele de bataie, folosiind click stanga si dreapta pentru atac direct si alternativ si click pe scroll pentru un atac ♥♥ un fel de energie, la distanta. Unele scheme necesita apasarea repetata si de 5 ori a aceleiasi taste, dar totul merge de la sine si daca apesi la nimereala. ♥♥ controllerul e si mai simplu, tastele sunt mapate clasic si jocul ii foloseste toate functiile, ceea ce e extraordinar.

Avem de-a face ♥♥ un joc de actiune/aventura 3rd person, in care nu poti controla camera. Exista momente cand camera nu este centrata ♥♥♥ trebuie si scapi din vedere personajul care poate pica in prapastie sau se bate in afara campului vizual. Nu m-a deranjat prea tare acest lucru, caci de fiecare data cand mori, Masca are cate o replica taioasa, punandu-ti sub semnul intrebari abilitatile, razand de tine cand mori, avand o remarca sarcastica despre ce doreai sa faci sau despre masculinitatea ta, ca si personaj.

De-a lungul jocului va trebui sa combini abilitati de lupta ♥♥ dexteritate in evitarea obstacolelor sau acuratetea unor sarituri de pe o platforma pe alta. Actiunea se petrece intr-un ritm extrem de alert, ceea ce m-a atras. Inamicii sunt de putine feluri, insa vin di nce in ce mai multi si nu te plictisesti. In plus, in fiecare parte a jocului vei primi anumite misiuni speciale care te vor face sa incerci de mai multe ori aceasi misiune pana iti iese ♥♥♥ trebuie. Sunt si momente cand trebuie sa iti folosesti inteligenta ca sa rezolvi anumite puzzle-uri si sa scapi din situatii dificile.

Printre adversari se numara muncitori si luptatori de gherila, apoi animale fantastice sau oameni posedati de spirite malefice, in functie de zona in care esti. Ce mi-a placut in timpul luptelor este faptul ca poti folosi aproape tot ce ai in jur, butoaie, cutii si explozibil, dar si mediul inconjurator. De exemplu, pe platforme poti inhata inamicii si sa-i arunci de pe margine, scapand astfel rapid de ei. De asemenea, arma ♥♥ care esti echipat are abilitatea de a bara/respinge atacuri, iar atunci cand esti atacat ♥♥ rachete, le poti bara si chiar crea un ricoseu, intorcand-o asupra atacatorului. In anumite locuri din jungla te vei trezi atacat de paianjeni sau scorpioni, mai mici la inceput, dar chiar si de dimensiuni mari, iar o abilitate care mi-a placut a fost ca, atunci cand reusesti o combinatie de lovituri asupra animalelor mari si le ametesti, poti folosi tasta E pentru a te urca pe aceasta si a o folosi in lupta.

Eu am jucat Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death direct pe nivelul dificil, lucru intelept si va recomand sa faceti la fel. Nu este imposibil de jucat astfel si vei beneficia de toate elementele posibile, oferindu-ti 8-10 ore de gameplay extrem de rapid si antrenant, lucru rar intalnit la jocurile single-player de acum, ceea ce il face si mai atractiv. Problema ♥♥ astfel de titluri este ca odata ce l-ai terminat e putin probabil sa-l rejoci, trebuind sa faci aceleasi lucruri din nou.

Grafica si sunet

♥♥♥ am spus la inceputul articolului, video-ul de la inceput te induce in eroare, fiind de slaba calitate, insa jocul arata foarte bine. Grafica este surprinzator de buna, in lupta mediul nu devine haotic si esti constient de ceea ce se intampla in jurul tau fara probleme. Schemele executate sunt la viteza normala, dar se observa usor chiar si inamicii aruncati in sus si care pot fi loviti chiar si in aer. In lupta ai posibilitatea sa executi o lovitura mortala, iar acestea sunt derulate in slow motion, din nou placute la vedere, in stilul Assassin’s Creed. O chestie care nu mi-a placut prea mult a fost in 3-4 momente ale jocului, cand am terminat o bataie ♥♥ un “boss”, atunci cand executi fatalitatea, imaginea se opreste, oferindu-ti cadre statice, vazute din mai multe unghiuri, un super slow-motion, care parca este mult prea incet, aproape ca in poze. Nu arata rau, sa nu ma intelegeti gresit, dar parca nu se imbina bine ♥♥ actiunea rapida de care ai parte in 99% din joc.

Sunetul nu m-a impresionat prea mult la prima incercare, dar cand am incercat jocul pe controller, conectat la televizor, pe Steam, totul s-a schimbat. Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death profita la maxim de capacitatile 7.1 ale sistemului de sunet si iti da impresia de film. Dialogurile sunt bune, pline de umor, dar pot deveni repetitive in unele momente. Sunetul de fundal este excelent, nu te disturba in joc, ceea ce m-a surprins in mod placut.

Concluzie

Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death este un joc surprinzator de bun, iar, avand in vedere pretul scazut, este in acest moment un best-buy pentru nisa actiune-aventura. Nu am vazut de mult un titlu asa de ieftin care sa ma tina conectat mai mult decat un joc prezentat ca un AAA, dar care dezamageste din multe puncte de vedere, spre deosebire de titlul dezvoltat de catre ZootFly. Gameplay-ul mi-a oferit aproape 10 ore de actiune intensa, extraordinara, lucru rar intalnit in aceste zile. Pot spune ♥♥ mana pe inima ca Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death este poate cel mai bun joc pe care l-am testat in ultima perioada, m-a surprins in multe aspecte si il recomandam ♥♥ placere.

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.
