Conclusion: With all of this turmoil in the region both factions would like nothing better than to crush the other side as soon as an excuse, no matter how tenuous, presents itself. Eventually this happens when the president of the Atlantic Alliance hears that there was an unauthorized arms build up in Pacifica, and with that war breaks out, drawing in Asia and Europe in the process.
Summary: Parents need to know that there's a ton of shooting here, but there's not much guts and blood. While there's a fair amount of death and killing of the evildoers, the killing has no feeling. It's like shooting ducks in a shooting gallery. In terms of role-modeling, your character is kind of a cynical crab, but you do try to save the world.
Excerpt: Fracture is one of those games that you'll want to love but can't. Even more so than LucasArts' other recent next-gen release Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, Fracture will dumbfound you with endless moments of greatness followed by even more moments of vein popping annoyance. It's a game that teases you with possibilities, but rarely delivers, and it somehow manages to look solidly next-gen and woefully generic at the same time.
Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is We had some issues approaching this game. In a season filled with AAA titles and empty wallets, the amount of money and time we invest into any game has to be a sound investment. Fracture, a decent effort from both LucasArts and Day 1 Studios, is a game that many gamers might miss or not even notice.
Summary: Reshape the battlefield - and the fate - of a broken nation in Fracture, Pacifica and the Atlantic Alliance, boast soldiers with powers beyond those of ordinary men. The differing states of superhumanity result in balanced yet stylistically different combat tactics that have never been seen before.
Conclusion: What happened to Fracture? The game sounded like a good idea while it was in production. Once the demo came out I had second thoughts about it; however I still wanted to give it a chance. It turns out the real game is just as bad as the demo. Fracture is a glorified Playstation 2 game; don’t waste $60 on this game.
Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Fracture has staked its reputation on one main mechanic of making the earth move and for that, it doesn't deliver. It may cause the odd tremor amongst the XBL fraternity, but the single player is a advert for indifference and token gestures. Solid, average, generic, clichéd and just too dull to trouble the bigger and more established shooters.
