Thrusting players into the shoes of Dr. Kate Ward, a member of an elite space exploration unit called SCAR (funnily enough), you’ll have to tear your way through hordes of alien entities that are intent on tearing you asunder.
The Scars Above reviews, however, tell a story of division, as critics can’t seem to agree on whether or not they love or hate the game. On Steam, the game is rated as “mostly positive,” with more blue thumbs up than red thumbs down.
If you’re a little uncertain I wouldn’t blame you, but Mad Head has offered a solution: a sale. Yes folks, Scars Above’s PC version is currently 15% on Steam, with the sale running until March 7. That brings the price down to $33.99 / £29.74 from $39.99 / £34.99 – quite the saving on a shiny new game.
Scars Above isn’t the only thing that’s on sale right now, though, as Valve has reduced the price of its iconic Portal series to match that of a potato – and that’s for both puzzle games. There’s the Valve Complete Pack, too, which offers 22 of the developer’s best games for $57 / £47, which is cheaper than the cost of most new AAAs these days.
So if you’re library is looking a little bare at the moment, you can pick up some classic old games, while also balancing them out with Scars Above. If Mad Head’s shooter proves too easy (or, alternatively, far too difficult), we also have a list of the best games like Dark Souls if you fancy torturing yourself a little more.
