Review: Mars: War Logs
This is, sadly, reality -- so Mars: War Logs is but another Spiders game.

Commands again, very basic ones can be issued to one's follower, yet it matters not, as they have zero survival ability and deal generally mediocre damage. Their job seems to be that of a temporary distraction. They break up the enemy's attention for a minute or two, before they're knocked out and you finish everybody off. Just be warned that, if you pair up with the fellow Technomancer character, she proves herself terrific at hitting you with her attacks, breaking your attacks and dealing damage.
Sadly, she's the only NPC actually worth a damn in a fight. Combat mostly involves rolling around, smacking things, and rolling some more. The block function is too slow to be of much use, and enemies have a tremendously irritating habit of evading attacks with a dodge move far superior to your own, before counter-attacking. Like any good Spiders game, the adventure is imbalanced in favor of enemies at the beginning, before becoming pitifully easy toward the end once you level up far beyond the capabilities of the opposition.
At the end of each combat round, one can begin a looting process that is, to say the least, fairly arduous. The scene can be skipped, but doing so is still a pointless waste of time.
There are also skippable cutscenes for every single door opened or small box climbed, and it never stops feeling like a waste of time with absolutely no contribution to the experience. Due to the real-time nature of combat and the lack of keyboard control customization, I've found a controller is a better input method, though sadly Spiders neglected to include any form of automatic camera movement.

So it is that the player is caught between a control scheme inadequate for combat, or one inadequate for navigating the narrow corridors that make up the game's small, maze-like maps. Graphically, this is a Spiders game, so you should know what you're getting into. Visuals are basic, animations stunted, but altogether it's not an ugly game.
It's worth mentioning that, during my playthrough, I didn't notice any bugs or glitches, with the game seeming a lot more stable than I've come to expect from this particular sector of development. As far as sound goes, there's a nice subtle soundtrack punctuated by absolutely awful voice acting -- a problem not helped by a generally laughable script that tries to sound grown up by casually tossing vulgarity and rape references around, but just comes off like childish rambling.
It exists, it does what it does, and it performs its job suitably. It doesn't do anything terrible, but it never once goes above a basic standard of acceptability. It's very clear that it wants to ape the best action-RPGs of the genre, but its too basal and hurried to pull off a single remarkable thing.
It's a shame because Spiders' last attempt -- Of Orcs and Men -- was genuinely great, a game that similarly failed to be all it wanted to be, but at least had an interesting story and some wonderful presentation.
War Logs, by contrast, simply exists. You are logged out. Since Odell was just a mall cleaner working for "Grimsclean", no one gave him as much credit as he wanted them to.
So he wanted to change it by doing something unthinkable. Judge Hall hereby sentenced Odell to 20 years in jail for the first degree murder of Lucy Campbell. Do you KNOW my father is? I will not go to jail, I will not! You're risking your career with this, lady! Character felt that Aileen was a horrible step-mother, being abusive to both him and his step-brother Oliver, and stealing money from the family for Tom Hunt, her ex-husband. When Scott asked for his baseball card back, Aileen ripped it to pieces.
It was a sentimental and super rare card, worth thousands of dollars, that was given to him by his grandfather, Alden. Scott could not bear it and killed Aileen with a baseball bat and tied her up next to Oliver's crib. Due to the severity of the crime, when Scott was arrested, he was tried as an adult, which explains why Judge Hall sentenced him to 20 years in jail.
I'm not the monster here, I gave her what she wanted the most: I never use cocaine! I'm a healthy guy! I get exercise, I eat balance meals, I don't drink Character was arrested for addicted to drugs. The stupid waiter didn't get the plate to the right table! Character poisoned Daisy by accident when the victim was having dinner with her husband one night at Chez Valentine. Valentine intended to poison Tobias Sharp, but the waiter, unintentionally, got the plate to the wrong table, poisoning Daisy, who was found dead in her kitchen the next day.
Although the murder was an accident, Judge Hall decided thus a murder is a murder, and a year jail sentence with no parole was mandatory for Valentine. I never meant to do this!
Don't let them take me! Character accidentally killed Freddy with the stolen crossbow during the celebration of the successful robbery of the Greene Mansion at Cooper Park.
The crossbow had accidently fired as it was rusty. Since participating in a robbery was considered as a felony, Julian Ramis, though the murder was accidental, was to report to the Grimsborough Juvenile Detention Center for 1 year.
Had Julian refused to conduct the robbery, no charges would have been pressed against him. I only hope that Derek will find a way to move on on his own. Character was drunk when she found Gail unconscious because of an overdose in the construction site. She thought that Gail was dead and encased the victim in solid concrete so that the body could not be found. Irina hid the victim's body because she thought that Gail's death would give Derek's company a bad image since the victim was an employee of Derek.
She did not want to jeopardize Derek's company, which the two of them had built with a lot of hard work. The sentence was 10 years in jail with parole after 5 years for Irina. These kids didn't listen to a word I said! I TOLD them to take the bag with them. What a bunch of idiots! Character was arrested for selling drugs to teenagers. Did you enjoy it as much as I did? I finally FELT something, something that even the hardest drug never gave me: Character's personality in fact was a sadist.
And also, Tyler was a psychopath and he wanted to kill someone. He knew that Steve lived in a homeless camp in Cooperville and that he had recently got out of prison, and therefore, Tyler took full advantage of it. He told Steve that he would help him to get back on his feet. The two met and Tyler took Steve to a creepy basement, where he tortured the victim, cut off his fingers, ripped out and ate his liver, and finally killed him using an iron maiden, an old torture instrument.
He then spread the fingers in different locations before the team found Steve's body for Nathan to autopsy in the torture basement in the last minute. Tyler's manner of manslaughter horrified Grimsborough anew, and the Judge sentenced him to life imprisonment with no chance for parole. Oh, give me a break! People are rotten at their core: I just found a way to turn it into gold!
He was guilty for killing Rachel and originally with Marsh was sentenced to life imprisonment, but he bribes to get released.

Don't you realize I'm a national hero, not a criminal?! You're making a grave mistake! Character was an army general. He was guilty for an accomplice for Rachel's Murder and with Alden, was sentenced to life imprisonment. You can't arrest me, I'm doing the work of God! What are a few chimps' lives if I can save thousands of human lives?!
Character was arrested for managed to testing on animals. What a dramatic ending, I love it! Character was a stage director. Jacob was ruining Phineas' new play called Hamlet since he was a bad actor. Phineas had also tried to fire Jacob a lot of times but the role was secured by a binding contract which prevented Dawks from getting terminated at will. He said that Jacob had a bad tone and that he used to misbehave with everyone. Phineas then told the team that Jacob had to be replaced, or the theater company would be bankrupt before the end of the month.
Phineas was sentenced to 30 years in prison with no chance for parole. I'm sorry I've let you down. I only ever wanted to stay with you. I need to go to prison for what I did. At least I'll stay in town that way, right? Character was the girlfriend of Daniel Taylor who she kills. Daniel wanted to leave Grimsborough and go to Australia with or without Lily, but Lily did not want to leave the city since it was her home and she belonged there.
Even her grandmother felt discarded when Daniel warned that he was leaving anyway. According to Lily, she and Daniel were soulmates and she could not let her love go away from her.
For the murder of Daniel, Lily was sentenced to 15 years in jail with a chance for parole in 6 years.
I didn't kill him! Character was detained for being a strong suspect. But however, he was proven innocent after the actual killer, Cornelia, arrested. But since my brilliant murder, people can't stop coming:
