I just got done finishing the single player mode of Inversion on high gravity mode. I also played a game of multiplayer a few days ago, but I did have to wait in the lobby for 10 minutes before another person joined so we could play against each other. I'll start with the positives of the game first as it's too easy to focus on the negatives of any game.

1) Gears of War style controls and mechanics. If you're a Gears fan, the controls and even some of the guns will feel slightly familiar. The aiming system is different, and the game isn't as smooth as Gears in how it handles.

2) Gravity powers. I really like this aspect of the game, and this does take the game from being a strictly Gears clone to something else. There are certain situations where using your gravity powers (low and high gravity) are necessary to defeat bosses. The gravity mechanics can become a little boring, but I really love the concept and am hoping for an improved upon sequel.

3) The challenge of the game. I just got done beating Max Payne 3 on hard a few weeks ago, and while Inversion may not be quite as difficult, there are parts on High Gravity (hardest setting) that will have you repeatedly banging your head against the wall and cursing at your tv set! Most of the really tough stuff comes towards the last few chapters of the game, and sometimes it just feels really cheap on the hardest setting, but it's definitely possible to get past the "cheap" sections.

Now for the negatives of the game.

1) The gameplay, while slightly fresh and slightly Gears like, it fails to do the Gears control scheme as well and the slightly fresh (gravity controls) aren't as fresh and unique as I would like them to be.

I am so glad i took a chance on Inversion, especially after reading some rather unfavorable reviews on it. I will just cut to the chase and tell you the bad and the good. Judge for yourself whats important to you.

The bad.
Game starts off slow
Texture pop in is sort of frequent
Frame rate stutters sometimes in high intensity battles
Characters are bland
Voice work is B grade (though it doesnt bother me much)
Story is ok
Guns need just a little more "pow" sound to them.
Cover can be a little iffy at times

Now the good (which outweighs the bad by alot)
Graphics are fantastic, huge draw distances and vivid colors in some areas
Awesome particle effects and destructive cover
Game gets alot more fun once you get more gravity powers
Boss battles are old school arena fights, but are actually fun and challenging
Gun fights are really great and get my blood pumpin
Using the gravlink to hurl things at enemies; offers player creative ways to defeat enemies, rather than just shooting
Varied environments break up repetition
Shifting of gravity in some sections gives you a cool sense of vertigo
Zero G sections are great and dont last too long that you get tired of them
Character animations are great, i like the roadie run and the dodge rolls
Team mate AI seems to be really good, he calls out enemies and uses his gravity powers to help you out during fights
Story takes a huge twist that I did not see coming, really refreshing.
Guns later in the game are unique and fun
Game is decent length for a shooter 8 to 10 hours
Challenging without being frustrating

I love this game, it is my sleeper hit of the year right next to Binary Domain. I did rent this game, but when it gets down to at least $20 i will definitely buy it. Do yourself a favor and at least rent this underrated gem, its at least worth a rental for some of you im sure!

I wish I had played a demo for this game before I bought it. I watched some of the video reviews and it looked interesting. Let me assure you that it looks far better than it plays. Any positive that the gravity-tweaking stuff might provide is offset by the terrible gun action and impotent cover system.

Inversion is basically a series of very small-area high stress combat scenarios that you often have to play through several times before you find "the clean line" to complete it. Between every little area is a cinematic of some sort, and in most cases it is over-acted, under-written garbage. The main character's quest for his daughter is just jibberish. The game is trying to be plot heavy but the plot is very cliche and boring. I'm five chapters in and have spent as much time watching nonsense than playing the actual game.

The graphics and environments are outstanding. The level design is very creative. The vistas are impressive, the art is fantastic.

It is too bad that the game plays, on a technical level, like an amateur cut-rate attempt at Gears of War. The cover system might as well be from the Perfect Dark era. You'll often not stick to cover but dodge/roll into the open. You'll find that stuff that looks like it should be cover, isn't. You'll find popping up out of cover to shoot doesn't follow where you are looking, which can make it very difficult to target quickly. You are always looking over the character's right shoulder, so when he comes out of cover on the left side, he steps wide left -- but when he comes out of cover on the right, he comes out just a bit. That can make predicting shot angles difficult.
