    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.
  2. Far from a masterpiece, nowhere near awful. [Nov 2013, p.95]

    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.

    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]

    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 But too soon the plot loses its grip, the characters get stale and overall the visuals seem as outdated as ever.

    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.

    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 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. Full Review »
