Michael Urban writes “I never thought I’d end up in the middle of the war, but I didn’t really understand how.”
That nonsensical example of poor translation you see above? Yeah… that’s the very first spoken line of dialogue you’ll hear in Mars: War Logs.
At that point, all signs point to an unremarkable or even miserable experience ahead. You’ve shaken your head at the game’s uninspired title, ignored the spotty trailers and pressed on only to be greeted by that line, one that’s delivered rather poorly at that. It’s apparent from the get go that this is by no means a AAA title, having been developed by a French studio under a tight deadline and with a budget that can only be called ‘speck of a shoestring’. Things seem pretty dire." 3.5/5
