Excerpt: Once again a shooter, that’s what I thought when I was given Fracture. It almost seems like the shooter slice of the market doesn’t get saturated. LucasArts, in cooperation with Day 1 Studios, promised us this wouldn’t be the thirteenth shooter in a dozen.
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...
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
