Inversion Review

 

The story is a very simple one. Humanoid aliens come down to Earth, kill mostly everyone and enslave the people who are left. Enter cop Davis Russell and his partner Leo Delgado, men who oddly don't seem too bothered about saving the world but are very...

The first time you leap into a section where gravity has been inverted, resulting in running around on the ceiling.

With a name like Inversion, you just know that not long after booting up the game some crazy, gravity-defying shenanigans are going to ensue. This is actually the game's selling point. It's the feature they want you to know about, because in the end,...

One of the few saving graces here is also the most surprising. The competitive multiplayer can be incredibly fun. You're separated into two groups and each team is armed with a Gravilink that increases or decreases gravity. This leads to some crazy,...

Inversion Playtest: A Little Too Unambitious

 

I wish Inversion would have been a bit more ambitious, because the game's core is fine.

There are a couple of other uses of the gravity mechanic, like using heavy gravity to pull down an item in the right place to make a bridge, or the occasional gravity-shifted fight that allows you to float between pieces of cover, but on the whole, the...

Inversion is one of those games that seem to have been around forever, quietly popping its head up out of the bushes every few months to remind us it still exists while we continue living our lives and barely so much as grunt an acknowledgement. Such...

Inversion Review

 

Inversion is a shooter with a twist. But is its gravity-warping gameplay enough to make it standout from the crowd of cover-based shooters?

Inversion is a disparate collection of ideas grouped around the conceit of gravity. Some are more fleshed out than others, but none are executed to their fullest potential. You’ll use them when you have to, but more often than not Inversion is more...

What goes up, must come down. Inversion comes down hard. Full review inside.

Online has a cool concept ; Gravity sections are fun

Shooting mechanics are stiff ; Long checkpoint loading ; Gravity powers feel underused ; Poor presentation and narrative

Inversion Review

 

You can’t help but be reminded of Gears of War when firing up Inversion for the first time. The look of the weapons and the Lutadore enemies, as well as the cover and constant push forward nature of the game just draw a few comparisons. Albeit a...

Looks awesome; Gravity features add cool dimensions to gameplay; Features online co-op

Too linear for such an open concept; Enemies language and accents sound primitive and a bit silly; Environment and gravity aspects are not fully capitalised on

Inversion Review

 

Gears of War meets Dead Space meets Half-Life 2. A perfect combo?

Inversion" is not a great game, mostly because the gunplay is pretty dire, and the bosses are over-used and over-difficult. The game gets more and more frustrating as you progress, and I could barely stand it by the end. The multiplayer is basically...
