Good

Weak kin of Dead Space

I don't do multiplayer but the campaign was interesting enough. So-so story, but enough to keep momentum and not bore. Would have liked more variety in weaponry but aiming/shooting/destroying worked fine. The gravity gun was similar to portions of Dead Space. Worth a rent.

Underappreciated

I don't understand how someone can give this game a 1 or 2. Sure the story is dumb and the characters are cliche and personality-less, but so is Bella from Twilight.

The game is much underappreciated. I had a blast playing through campaign. The game is a great idea and has great potential, however it didn't live up to that potential. Messing with physics and gravity always gives the player a feeling of ultimate power and control. Heck, you can make guys float!

A big problem is that it could have used a lot MORE antigravity segments, switched gravity, and more gravity powers.

Overall, the game could have been much better but I predict it will spark other ideas for other futuristic video games in the future, hopefully ones that have learned from Inversion.

Overview
====================
Unfortunately I suspected this game wouldn't be good and it sure isn't... It is a 3rd person shooter with the twist of gravity shifting.

However, I completed 2 chapters and couldn't stand playing it anymore. It is one of the worst games I've played as of late. Let me count the reasons why:

1) lame acting/story
2) weak controls
3) guns have no weight or feel to them
4) poor framerate
5) half of the game was cut scenes in the 2 chapters I played
6) graphics are not very good

Simply put I couldn't find a single thing to list as good. It was a waste of a rent and I feel really sorry for anyone that bought it.

The problem is that it is horrific because all aspects of the game are subpar....if it was just a few areas it would be a passable time waster....isn't even worth that.
