  • Excerpt: Back in the early 1990s, a game called Supreme Warrior was released for the 3DO console and the 32X add-on for the Sega Genesis. It was a horrible first-person fighting game based around "interactive" video clips ala the infamous Night Trap and Sewer Shark games.

  • Excerpt: Breakdown stars Derrick Cole, the role that was given to me to wear like a blanket when I started. Encased inside its warm fuzzy rolls, I experienced everything Namco tossed at me to make me believe that Derrick and I were one and the same, and damn it, they made a believer out of me.

  • Conclusion: I loved every minute of Breakdown - even the frustrating parts. With fierce hand-to-hand combat, first-person shooting, a cool storyline, puzzles to solve, surreal dream sequences and a level of immersion rarely seen in games, Breakdown is an amazing journey into the unknown.

  • Conclusion: Breakdown is hard game to judge, and if you're reading reviews on the game you will find that some will love this game while others hate. It's just not right hating a game which tries so hard to do something fresh. Even with its flaws the Breakdown is better then the average game.
