Grab The Games: Scars Above

Another day, another review for our fans. Today, I couldn't be happier not only that we have the opportunity to review a very promising game but also that we are going to present you how this title holds up against other similar titles! But what is this game? Is it worth the hype? Should you pick it up when available? Stick around, and you will find out now. Let's start by mentioning a few things about the game itself. Scars Above is a challenging sci-fi third-person action adventure shooter combining the rewarding feel of overcoming difficulty with a compelling and intricate story, set in a mysterious alien world to explore.

A colossal and enigmatic alien structure appears in Earth's orbit and stuns the entire world; humanity names it ‘The Metahedron’. The Sentient Contact Assessment and Response team (SCAR) - consisting of scientists and engineers - is sent to investigate. Things don’t go as planned and the Metahedron hauls the team across space onto a mysterious extrasolar planet. Playing the role of Dr. Kate Ward - a SCAR member - who wakes up dazed, alone in a strange, hostile environment. Determined to survive, you set out to find your crew and unravel the mystery behind what’s happened.

Kate is an astronaut and a scientist – not a soldier - but she's resourceful and determined to do anything to survive. Use a combination of ranged weapons, devices, consumables, and melee attacks, you need to manage stamina as you run, dodge, exploit weak points, and discover effective tactics to defeat your foes. Combine different elemental attacks to beat the odds and breakthrough otherwise impassable obstacles. Craft different items and gadgets to aid you against the countless threats in this exoplanet.

To begin with, the very first aspect that impressed me is the habitat that is slowly introduced to the player and in general, the artwork of the title. There is a fantastic atmosphere for even the most demanding players; the graphics are a hugely positive aspect of the game since they are incredibly realistic, and everything seems extremely real and a great improvement compared to the original game. Furthermore, apart from the fact that the story was way more interesting than I could imagine, the soundtrack and the voiceover are really worth mentioning as well.

Moreover, another positive aspect of the game is that it not only encourages exploration but also you will need to adapt to different situations, use the environment against a different types of enemies and of course your arsenal will help you. As far as the negative aspects are concerned, I couldn’t find anything that stopped me from having fun. The title stands at around 6-7 hours of playtime which is really great and honestly it can compete fairly with other similar titles.

To sum up, the game as a title is impressive and fun. I totally recommend it to everyone and it is definitely worth picking it up
