Mars War Logs Review (PC)

By Ian Crane

MWLpic3.jpg

French developers Spider Studios, have only created a handful of games the last of which was the underwhelming “Of Orcs and Men” in 2012. However while these indi developers continue to refine their ideas and create unique experience Mars War Logs is perhaps the single best game of their portfolio to date. Spiders openly stated that War Logs was “The game they always wanted to make from the start” and it shows, as it combines all the elements and ideas they have previously tried wrapped up in adult dialogue and a wicked sense of humour.

Before the game releases on console in the next two weeks, Daily Joystick brings you the full PC review to get you ready, to escape Mars again.

Before 2009, JJ Abrams had the insurmountable task of rebooting a series, that some thought- untouchable. The brain child of the late, great Gene Roddenberry Star Trek as a series and franchise had over 40 years, 10 movies and 5 series already under its belt- but it was a gamble that for the most part paid off.

Star Trek video games though have fared less well over the years with a mixed bag of everything: from flight sims to RTS and most notably two first person shooters called Elite Force. The most recent entry from Namco Bandai is a far from perfect game but harkens back to the classic action games from 15 years ago, with a very mixed bag of all of the above; platforming, flying sim and 3rd person always online co-op shooting in the one single game.
