Gravity-Defying Shooter 'Inversion' Gets Three New Gameplay Videos

A trio of videos show off the topsy-turvy multiplayer gameplay of the Namco Bandai's upcoming third-person shooter.

Over in the comments for one of Inversion's gameplay videos, a user described the Saber Interactive-developed shooter as "Gears of Wall" which is a super-apt way of describing what we're all seeing here, I think. The weapons have some pretty interesting effects, but other than that, the gravity-shifting hook that's touted as being at the heart of the game doesn't get a whole lot of play here (save for a couple of executions). I'm hoping Inversion doesn't fall into the same trap that Capcom's Dark Void did, i.e. becoming Gears of War but also....

Here's the official synopsis:

Take on the role of a young father and husband, Davis Russel, who finds himself thrust into war when his peaceful city is invaded by an unknown enemy. With his daughter missing and conventional weapons and tactics all but useless, this ordinary cop and his partner Leo Delgado will rise up to heed the call of duty, master the fundamental forces of gravity and save the world.

Inversion hits the PS3 and the Xbox 360 on February 7th.
