Mars War Logs Review
Played from the patched v1716 version found on PB.
If you’re looking for a good little action rpg on Mars, and if you’re a Fan of Total Recall… you might find this game appealing ! 😉 Not the game of the year for sure… but still if you have 13 spare hours to pass, it can do the trick. Mars War logs have been created by the same french studio Spiders, who are also known for their Dark Souls like Bound by Flame, and is the Prequel of the 2016 game called The Technomancer.
Actually no… it’s not really a Prequel as Mars War logs was designed to be a Trilogy. But the game received so many bad critics that they decided to let time pass… and started anew some years later with the Technomancer. Plus it’s only a 13 hours game… yeah only 13 hours ! At the beginning i even thought the software i was using to calculate my playtime was bugged, but no it really seems i only spent 13 hours to complete the whole game, doing all side quests and even some grinding to practice combat.
Choose the Extreme Difficulty
If you want some challenge, i urge you to choose the Extreme Mode right from the start. You see… even if you’re going to die a lot during the first fights, learning the fighting curves… You’ll be glad to be in Extreme Mode after some hours. Because as soon as you acquire some skills like the long dodge, the game will become very easy.
But of course if you don’t like to Kite Backwards your enemies, and you just want to destroy everybody like Wolverine running in a pack of mobs feeling no damage, then don’t follow my advice and choose an easier mode. Even if i finished the game in Extreme mode, it’s true that the first hours and battles were a succession of Kiting , Dodging and Running to get away from the angry mobs, to pick them later one by one.
Let’s put some screenshots !
I liked the story to begin as a prisoner on Mars and to organize a rebellion. That’s the kind of appealing scenario, where the weak manage to rise above the powerful after a long struggle… well not so long remember ? 13 hours lol…
Also there are some checkpoints in Mars War Logs where the enemies are respawning. Then it also depends if you decide to kill them after each encounters or not… If you decide to let them live, you still gain the same experience, but they’re not dead… just unconscious ! Because if you decide to kill them… you’ll lose Karma but win more money.
Considering that you’ll have too much money by the end of the game, and that a good Karma can get you access to Good Bonus for your Companions, you might want to play the good guy 😉
Is there a Level limit in Mars War Logs ?
As your enemies can get back on their feet after some time, you can beat the hell out of them over and over… and so you can grind to gain a lot more experience ! I’ve seen on some forums that people managed to reach the Level 28… I finished the game completely, even spending at least 1 hour on the grinding XP, and i was only level 26 ! So the guys who reached level 28 must have spent HOURS on grinding !
I don’t know if there is a Level Limit in Mars War Logs… i don’t think so in fact, but do not worry you’ll never reach it ! Actually… as i said i was level 26 by the end, and i even had 2 spare skill points i never used. I was already FAR TOO STRONG ! Trust me at some point it’s becoming pointless to gain more experience if you’re already all mighty.
Let’s put some screenshots !
Mars War Logs is a good thing if you’re planning to play to the 2016 game The Technomancer.
It will make you understand what the Devs have tried to achieve even better.
Don’t have too many expectations though…
As you’ll see the end of the game faster than you thought… i was even surprised when it was over. Clearly it seems to me that this game, despite all the good points, have been released too early. You’ll understand what i mean soon ! Anyway…
You want to kick some prisoners ass ? You want to kick some militia ass ? You want to rise a little army from nothing to reclaim your freedom ? You want to fight with handmade weapons like Razors attached to a Steel Tube ? You want to wreak havoc using Electricity you learned to control ( Technomancy ) ? Then Mars War Logs was designed for you !
Don’t forget to spend some time in crafting, customizing your weapons and armor will save your life.
Let’s put some last screenshots !
Mars War Logs is a good download lol… if you don’t know what do during the upcoming 13 hours.
The difficulty i played on : Extreme (Hard at the beginning then very easy by the end)
How long is this game : ~12-13 hours (counting 1 hour of XP grinding)
Would i recommend it to a friend ? : Yes you can still download it for FREE 😉
Did i pay for it ? : Of course NOT !
