    Its concepts may be familiar, and its mechanics are not best-in-class, but Marlow Briggs switches gears often, always moving forward at a breakneck tempo.

    Marlow Briggs is not a bad game, but it lacks polish and gets repetitive quickly.

    At times funny and at times not, Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death is a pretty decent action game with a serious lack of inspiration. Even with all its deficiencies it is a nice indie clone of God of War, but it could have been much more than just that.

    Marlo Briggs and the Mask of Death is an action packed, brain-dead, budget thriller and if you are looking for a cheap release for all that repressed adrenaline, you will definitely be able to find worse things to do with your money. If, however, you are looking for a challenge to your intellect or a test of your skills, look elsewhere. The only thing Marlo Briggs will challenge is your patience.

    Just great. this is one really awesome game. Fun to play, action packed, beautiful graphics, very good sound effects and soundtrack. CombatJust great. this is one really awesome game. Fun to play, action packed, beautiful graphics, very good sound effects and soundtrack. Combat system is easy to learn, but controller is highly recommended. For the price of 13.99 euros this is well done investment To bad that there is no co-op, then it would be just unbeatable comparing to some other big budget games. Keep up the good work ZootFly bring us more awesome games. Expand

Brawlers aren't really my thing, but MB:ML is a lot of fun, and it's got a fair whack of character. It moves quickly and feels epic.

    I like how it kicks you straight into the game at the start - and there are some nice meta jokes throughout "who the hell designed this?!". The combo trainer is pretty nifty, although I often ended up button mashing.

    There's some interesting platforming and good enemy variety. The turret sections were a bit lame however, and the associated sound assets were pretty poor. It also lack graphics options and little things - like an in-game achievement menu and proper save slots.

    Otherwise, an excellent and it would seem critically under-appreciated buy.

And all I can say is that I was delightfully surprised and impressed with his game. Hilariously over-the-top plot and funny/awful dialog throughout. I beat the game in one 7 hour sitting. It's definitely worth that sale price.

    I recommend this game to any action game fan looking for a cheap fix.

    Combat and level design are the best two thing about this game,you have 4 awesome weapons and each one of them has alot of diffierent movesCombat and level design are the best two thing about this game,you have 4 awesome weapons and each one of them has alot of diffierent moves and the magic you have makes the combat better
    as you move through the game you'll see jungles,caves,factories and alot of stunning places
    yeah the story is nothing new but the events that happen through the game makes it really good and makes you more interested.
    the game has about 4 or 5 soundtracks and most of them suck BALLS!!
    Bossfights are not much and not challenging except the final bossfight and the game really lacks puzzles,the challenges are awesome but they were too easy
    the game takes about 8 -10 hours of fun gameplay(Recommended on normal difficulty) and stunning level design and it's so good and cheap

    Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death is nothing but a cheap imitation of God of War, Devil May Cry and the lackluster games Thor:God ofMarlow Briggs and the Mask of Death is nothing but a cheap imitation of God of War, Devil May Cry and the lackluster games Thor:God of Thunder/ Green Lantern the movie licensed games. The story starts off in a very generic way where the protagonist and his girlfriend are on vacation and then are ambushed by the main villain. What's worst is that the whole story is confusing. Gamers will ask themselves, WHO? WHAT? WHERE? WHY? The characters are generic and easily forgettable! So where do I begin. Well first off, the gameplay is a copy cat of God of War and Devil May Cry, gameplay sections are too linear, there are multiple glitches that will cause gamers to restart from the previous checkpoints, the game is way too easy, boss battles are a joke, TOO MANY QUICK TIME EVENTS during gameplay, Static images tell the story most of the time, the voice acting is laughable, the jokes are bare bones, the graphics are average and the textures are in low resolution. Oh wait I am not done, enemies range from soldiers, demons and bugs, cheap enemies towards the end of the game which will cause gamers to die a lot, leveling up in this game has no effect which makes it is an ABSOLUTE joke and the ending....SUCKS!!! There are only TWO things that this game gets right. 1. Gamers can save their game at anytime and 2. Weapon variations are very fun to use for only a few hours. (Then it gets repetitive and boring!) As Angry Joe stated in his "Thor:God of Thunder" movie licensed game review..... "It's just one of those games, where you want to break your controller because it is so @#$%^&* lazy!" Oh to put the final nail to this PIECE OF #$%^! IT IS 4 HOOOOOOOOOOUUUUUURRRRRSSS! @#$%THIS GAME!!!! Marlow Briggs sucks on both PC and Xbox 360! Zootfly/505 games should be ashamed of themselves! And people rating this game a 8,9 or 10/10... WHAT???????? Expand
