An underrated gamekalil | June 14, 2013 | See all kalil's reviews »
For my taste Inversion is a game that deserves to be highlighted and a sequel, a story not as intended but enough interesting gameplay comfortable but could have been more fluid, however the game is quite long, and it can be difficult , innovate not only in the use of gravity to use objects and killing enemies, but also focuses on what history and ways of fighting the bosses, which are quite difficult in some cases and require the interaction of objects in the environment to kill our opponent and also a constant tour of the stage. The sound is average, not amazing but good. The AI is quite good even at times it becomes very complicated. The variety of weapons are good, and very funny mutlijugador. Your partner, Leo, not make useless things or anything like that, ie not hinder, as in other games style. The graphics are visually pleasing but not leave you open-mouthed. What can be improved is the movement when you're on the severity that should be more fluid and perhaps get more out of those "powers". In short, Inversion is a great shooter action game will not be disappointed, do not hesitate and Miserable staff 3DJuegos note. Ahh I forgot also the enemies are not as numerous and repeated at the time of the game, a con but still great game and especially addictive.
Ignore the bad press.bradrg2 | June 7, 2013 | See all bradrg2's reviews »
I really enjoyed this title. It sticks closely to gears of war, throwing in pockets of Zero gravity just to mix things up a bit, even if it is way under utilized. Seeing as how we don't have gears on the PC, it's great to be able to play this. The biggest flaw with this game is that they throw waaaay to few bad guys at you. So you enter a room and may have two, sometimes three guys to kill and then you have to move on. With all the cut sequences it just breaks the momentum somewhat, so you never feel like you're ever in this grand scale war. If they brought out a patch that throws ten, fifteen, twenty guys at you in each room, I would give this another 20 points. Still it's good fun.
Very intriguing concept but does nothing to distinguish itselfScorpy | Jan. 30, 2013 | See all Scorpy's reviews »
Inversion reminded me a lot of 2012's Spec Ops: The Line. It's an incredibly generic shooter with a slight twist. However, in Spec Ops, the twist made going through the generic shooting parts all worthwhile. All Inversion has to promise is its innovation, which is where the game falters. Its entire premise of 'inversion' isn't exactly as awe-inspiring or intriguing as the game leads you to believe.
All qualms aside, Inversion is a pretty decent, if not painfully average cover-based shooter. You might not want to shell out $40 for this sucker and wait until it drops well under $20, because you've probably played this game before, and you've probably paid for it before as well.

The press has been too rough on this game. If you enjoy the genre and give Inversion a chance, it will offer an entertaining experience. The setting is interesting, while the zero-g sections and vector shifts are fun and implemented well. Visually, Saber Interactive created a desolate world that suits the storyline and draws you in. I enjoyed using the Gravlink to manipulate objects and eliminate foes. However, the sound effects could have been better and most of the enemies are more comical than intimidating. Inversion has its flaws, but anyone who is fond of third person shooters should be relatively satisfied and I recommend trying it.
A Solid Cover Based Shooter. Nothing new but Worth Checking outfable2 | Aug. 7, 2012 | See all fable2's reviews »
This game could have been better, there's lots of potential there for it to be better and there's a lot they could have done with it, but overall it cynically copies the formula of other Cover based Shooters and comes off as a fairly generic.
The reaction to this game hasn't exactly been fair or balanced, instead of judging the game for what it is, a solid if generic cover based shooter like Gears of War, this game has been judged for what it isn't, innovative. Judging it as a cover based shooter, it provides a solid experience, the story is actually decent even though the acting is at times a little hammy, and the multiplayer is at least fun and rewarding.
King of Gravity is intentionally imbalanced and fun, other multiplayer match modes are standard and exactly what you would expect from a cover based shooter.
Covering the story, I won't spoil the twist but it explains how and why your planet is being invaded, and ties everything together fairly nicely. It isn't that strange a twist as far as sci-fi games go, this is after all an alternate universe, an alternate earth, judging it by how absurd it would be given our real world space program is missing the point.
Is this game worth buying? That's debatable, it actually is a solid game with fun multiplayer and the price is likely to go down, at the very least this is definitely worth a rental. If you have nothing else to play, check it out.
