Take on the role of a young father and husband, Davis Russell, who finds himself thrust into war when his peaceful city is invaded by an unknown enemy.

|Game Revolution Wise men like to say that there are only two guarantees in life: death and taxes. Well, friends, I’m feeling gutsy enough to add a third. I guarantee that you have played far worse shooters than Inversion. I’d bet money on it. Not only because there are so many terrible FPSs out there, but because it honestly isn’t as bad as some reviewers and internet trolls would have you believe. Ultimately, it’s a solid cover-based shooter in the Gears of War tradition (it is technically a tradition by now, right?) but is unable to reach that threshold both technically and narratively.

|GamingBolt The thing I dislike most about gaming is non-originality. I don’t even necessarily mind if a game is bad, so long as it at least tries to do something different. Inversion, I thought, might be that game. Though it may not have had the clout of a triple-A shooter, it at least appeared to be going about things from a unique angle. Certainly its gravity-defying selling point looked good on paper, but on screen it’s a tragically different story. Read Full Review||50/100|
Destructoid Inversion is one of those games that seem to have been around forever, quietly popping its head up out of the bushes every few months to remind us it still exists while we continue living our lives and barely so much as grunt an acknowledgement. Such games come along now and then, and rarely do we expect a lot out of them.
Suffice it to say that not many people expected much from Inversion.
