(Mars War Logs Spin Off)
Played from a downloaded version v 1.0u3636 found on The Pirate Bay.
The Technomancer is the non-official Sequel to Mars War Logs.
How long is this game ?
If you choose the Extreme difficulty to make the challenge harder, and if you want to solve all the side quests… You can expect roughly around 40 hours of gameplay. But i have to warn you that… in these 40 hours, there will be a lot of running errands and even some XP grinding. That means at some point in the game it’s going to be boring !
Is the Story interesting ? Solid Plot and Background ?
Pretty Good at the beginning ! But falling to Only Average after 15 hours…
The fact that you have to revisit every locations many times is ruining the whole story. Frankly there are missions i did for the XP only, as i wanted to get rid of them as fast as possible. Seemed to me the devs had lots of ideas… but not structured the right way. In the end i felt like there was this mission to do, because they put it there as there was some place to fill. It’s like i have an idea… ok then put it here after the other mission, there’s some place left…
How Pro is Voice Acting ?
Alternating from the Best to the Worst… Really depends on the actors behind the micro, but it seems to me that some actors were real professionals, while some others were complete beginners who delivered a shitty acting performance !
What is the Maximum Level you can reach ?
There is no Maximum level… I was Level 41 or 42 by the time i had completed the game. Though you have to know that there are 3 kinds of points you can get through leveling… Attributes, Talents and Skills. Attributes are limited to 12 points, Talents to 9 points and Skills are unlimited. That means that after reaching level 34 you will only gain skill points, but that’s good good enough.
Is the Technomancer challenging ?
If you choose the Extreme difficulty yes it will be… and never in the game will you become all mighty. I mean… Yes of course by the time you reach level 30 you’ll have a lot of power ! But that doesn’t mean you can’t die… In the Extreme mode, even with good stuff, even if you can kill enemies pretty fast, you can still get your ass kicked in 6-7 hits.
You have to time your actions precisely, and we can compare that with the Dark Souls fights. Besides you can make a good use of Exploding Traps and Health Injections to stay alive.
Are the enemies respawning ?
After each battle you can choose to Kill your opponents or not… I’ve never killed them as you lose Karma if you do. So they’re just unconscious… and if you come back later you’ll have to knock them down all over again. The good thing is… you get the same XP everytime ! So i imagine that if you decide to kill them… they won’t respawn, but not sure and it’s not recommended if you want to keep a good Karma with your companions. (and unlock their friendship skills).
How important are the skills ?
Crafting is important to make your gear better ! Only put 2 points as there are outfits giving you a +1.
Traps / Lockpicking is also important in Extreme Mode ! As for crafting only put 2 points. When you come across a lvl 3 chest, just buy and wear an outfit giving you +1 lockpick to open it. And Besides this skill is critical during combats as it enhances the damage of your exploding traps. Apart from that don’t expect to find unique stuff in locked chests, it will just be the usual stuff but in bigger quantity.
Focus your Skill points in 1 weapon branch and the Technomancy, don’t spread yourself between 2 weapons branches. Personally i focused my skill points in the Staff and Technomancy branches. The Staff is a powerful way to knockdown everyone around you with less of a hassle. If you know how to dodge, how to set traps in the heat of the fights, and pull the enemies towards you… You can win battles in seconds.
Besides the Staff branch got 2 extraordinary powers… Berserk and Tornado ! Activate Berserk to double damage, then activate your Tornado at the right moment… and you’ll have 5 enemies on the floor 😉
So… is it worth buying or downloading ?
Worth buying if it’s 20$ or less. (here is the link to steam)
Worth downloading if it’s more. (in that case search on PB for version 1.0u3636)
The Technomancer is a good try from the french studio Spider. They took a little of every other games out there… Companions interactions like in Dragon Age, battles where you have to be careful like in Dark Souls… and of course the technomancy is a mix of Jedi Powers and Mass Effect.
But the game can become very boring after some time…
The difficulty i played on : Extreme (and it’s challenging all the way)
How long is this game : 35 to 40 hours (If you plan to do Every side quests and grind XP)
Would i recommend it to a friend ? : Yes if he decides to download it on P2P 😉
Did i pay for it ? : NO.
