Not the best Resident Evil clone out on the market but one worthy of the ten bucks Take 2 is asking. If any game in the lineup of Got Games deserved to sell well it would be Martian Gothic, instead of perrenial favorite Spec Ops. A pleasant surprise that matches its lowly selling price. You truly get what you pay for here.

Interessant am Gameplay ist, daß man um weiter zu kommen, die drei Helden abwechselnd spielen muß. Man kann jeder Zeit hin und her wechseln. Etwas ermüdend ist die Steuerung... diese erweist sich als sehr träge auf. Die Grafik ist gerändert und kann sich von daher schon sehen lassen... etwas eckig und pixelig sind aber natürlich die Figuren. Fazit: Steuertechnisch etwas unausgereift, dafür aber abwechslungsreich und mit spannender Story untermalt

Si vous n'êtes pas un fan inconditionnel de Survival Horror, je doute que vous ayez la patience de passer à travers tous les problèmes de Martian Gothic. Le gameplay manque de peaufinage, les tank controls ne sont pas les plus précis, le voice-acting est douteux, et il y a beaucoup de glitches en plus de puzzles pas intuitifs vers la fin. Cependant, si vous êtes un fan de ce genre, c'est un jeu appréciable grâce à son ambiance et son histoire et une belle présentation dans l'ensemble. C'est intéressant de voir des idées qui ont été réutilisées plus tard dans des jeux comme Resident Evil 0, Doom 3, et même Dead Space jusqu'à un certain point. Comme Survival Horror sur PlayStation, je crois que celui-ci se classe une coche en dessous de Galerians et Countdown Vampires.

If you enjoyed the Resident Evil series and games of that ilk, you will enjoy Martian Gothic: Unification. The difficulty of the controls and the overall difficulty of game play are why I give Martian Gothic: Unification 3 out of 5 GiN gems. Best of all, this previously released PC game is in the value bin now, so you can pick up a decent adventure for $10.

In the end, Martian Gothic is not a game I would recommend for most people. The storyline definitely had its intriguing qualities and some of the features were enjoyable, but it was nowhere near original enough to overcome its shortcomings. The audience who would most benefit from this inexpensive game would be those who greatly enjoyed Resident Evil and would like try out a similar plot out of a sense of nostalgia.

Cast in the mold of Resident Evil, Martian Gothic: Unification does a decent job of blending explorative gameplay and third-person zombie fighting with a truly horrific story. It is unfortunate that the creature fighting is often so mathematical and that the puzzles aren't more intricate, as the game's subplot and character development are exquisite. Overall, Take-Two's brand of survival-horror is sufficient if you're looking for an alternative to the mainstream, but it certainly won't blow you away.
