New Inversion Trailer

Dear Reader,

“Inversion” is a 3rd person action game from Saber Interactive, the guys who did the completely adequate and occasionally good “Timeshift.” It’s basically “Gears of War,” except you can screw with gravity. I played this one at E3 and thought it was okay, but I’m waiting to be really impressed. It might be good, or it could go the way of “Fracture,” LucasArts’ ill-fated attempt to capitalize on the gaming community’s fascination with geology.

These gimmick games, where you’re suddenly master of a certain element, are tricky to make really outstanding. But I did think “Timeshift” was better than it got credit for, so I’m keeping an open mind.
