It's really interesting, could do with an expansion on the story as a whole with more content but for what it is, it's short and sweet. My only two complaints is that the stats don't really feel like they matter as long as you're doing things you have 55% and above for, it'd be nice if you got bigger stat boosts for things and specialized a little more in certain areas. And the conversations with Mads while rekindling your romance seem very unnatural for everything that happened in the past. The dialogue was just strange but not super unpleasant..
The Martian Job is exactly what I thought it would be. It can be a sort of 'Ocean's Eleven on Mars' type of story, or it can be 'expose corporate corruption sci-fi style' story depending on your choices. One reviewer complained that the story switches gears from one to the other in the middle. It really does not. If you want to keep the plots from mixing, you have to simply be consistent in choosing the options that stick to the path you choose to play through the story. It is true the 'corporate corruption' story line is offered later in the story, but once you switch, consistently choose the new path from then on will give you a satisfying plot to follow. Add in the various romance options and you have good replayability for a cheap price. Since I have always liked the 'professional gentleman thief' type characters, 'The Martian Job' is a solid buy for a surprisingly compact story..
