Inversion is a third-person shooter with a modern, sci-fi setting, and concussive action that is distinguished by gravity-control powers and destructible environments. In the main campaign, players take the role of an ordinary cop named Davis Russel, who finds himself in extraordinary peril when his city is attacked by an unknown force, armed with futuristic technology. Battles are now waged with weapons that can crush objects, reverse the force of gravity, or remove its effects altogether. The entire story can be played cooperatively, and online multiplayer competition is also available.
Developed by TimeShift creator, Saber Interactive, the game uses a version of the Havok physics engine to model collisions and destruction in game's vertigo-inducing skyscraper canyons, where rubble from a crumbling building may as likely fall upwards as downs, or hang weightless in mid-air to obstruct passage or provide cover. The game offers plenty of shooter action, but learning to use gravity to attack enemies indirectly, with objects and debris in the environment, may be crucial in major battles. Players will also manipulate gravity to solve puzzles and progress to new areas. ~ T.J. Deci, All Game Guide
