GameNTrain author Brian Warren writes: Mars: War Logs is a new title from the developer Spiders, published by Focus Home Interactive. Spiders used their in house SILK Engine in the games development. The game plays itself very straight forward RPG with a cyberpunk feel. Not the best RPG, but it is at least it is trying, given that it is an attempt mimic the style of Mass Effect. The start of the game takes us to Mars, over a century after the colonists threw the planet into chaos. Water is the most precious resource with a few groups fighting a perpetual war for its control.
You play the game as Roy Temperance, a man of many talents. You befriend a young soldier named Innocence, recently brought to the POW prision. Innocence is also the narrator – the War Logs of the title referring to his diary. The POW camp/prision setting actually shows a lot of promise, but you’re not long for the prison life.
