In the middle of this struggle,Mars: War Logs takes you to the red planet over a century after the catastrophe that threw the planet and its colonists into chaos. Water has become the most precious resource on the arid planet with a few companies fighting a perpetual war for its control. In the middle of this struggle, players take on the role of Roy Temperance, a renegade with multiple talents, and plunge into a thrilling cyberpunk RPG on the Red Planet! Players develop Roy and his combat style by choosing among dozens of skills and perks, and fight for his life in dynamic real-time combat against the fearsome creatures of Mars. The crafting system lets players create and modify equipment to maintain an edge over enemies. Dialogue choices as well as actions and decisions made will influence the destiny of the people Roy crosses paths with...and perhaps the fate of all colonies on Mars. Expand

    Mars: War Logs is an action-RPG unfortunately undermined by too many faults and failings to stand out in the now gigantic catalog of PSN and Xbox Live.

    An ambitious outing for a smaller studio to be sure as Mars: War Logs is big on ideas but sadly a bit lackluster on actual execution.

    Like its PC brother War Logs starts as an ambitious roleplaying game drawing me in with its opening sequence and fresh scenario. The battle system works well, so does the crafting. But too soon the plot loses its grip, the characters get stale and overall the visuals seem as outdated as ever.

    Its definitely worth a look and you might even find yourself enjoying it rather a lot, if you can look past a lot of the games obvious shortcomings.
  5. Far from a masterpiece, nowhere near awful. [Nov 2013, p.95]
  6. 60
    Though Mars: War Logs marks an achievement for its ambition, rough patches in presentation and gameplay make it a tough recommendation to anyone not willing to weather them. [Nov 2013, p.73]

    I was excited prior to the game coming out. Any RPG's that have a good story and provide a chance to learn about and explore a world soundsI was excited prior to the game coming out. Any RPG's that have a good story and provide a chance to learn about and explore a world sounds great.....that was until I played it. It seemed clunky, and fragmented with that 'Been there, done that feeling'. That's not to say it was a bad game but not really one I would have bought if I could go back and do it again. I didn't even finish it so honestly can't tell you if it got better. Go here, do that. Find this. Yes you can collect look to upgrade your clothes, weapons but the game overall didn't do anything to make me keep playing. Expand
