Breakdown Reader Review - 5.2

  • Conclusion: I can appreciate art as much as the next guy, BUT it is not art I'm thinking about when it comes to this game. The controls on this game are horrific. I was unable to find anyway to adjust the sensitivity of motion. The slightest touch of the analog controls had your character looking at the ceiling like he was trying to stop a nosebleed. As for the first-person perspective...I landed more punches on that old boxing game for the Sega CD than I could here.

A nice experiment with irritating rough edges

  • Summary: Breakdown tried to move ahead the world of action games by setting one completely in first person, and while the idea is good and opens up to some interesting storytelling and gameplay quirks, it has too many flaws to be considered a successful experiment. Shooting works entirely on a dodgy lock-on mechanic that doesn't really work (most of the time it refuses to lock on what you want, and even after you do, 90% of your shots miss the target anyway), brawling is okay on...

  • Summary: Im Fall von "Breakdown" für die X-Box fällt die Bestimmung des Genres leicht: wir befinden uns mittendrin in einem Egoshooterspektakel. Dies hat zur Folge, dass die zu definierende Zielgruppe ebenso wenig Kopfzerbrechen bereiten dürfte, so dass völlig klar ist, wer sich von Anfang an für dieses Game interessieren könnte und wer sogleich dankend ablehnt.
  • Pros: Originallizenz, Unmengen an Bikes und Ausrüstung, angenehm zahlreiche und sehr unterschiedliche Rennpisten, unterschiedliche Tageszeiten, viele Spielmodi
  • Cons: Qual der Wahl :  entweder extrem unrealistisch oder ungemein frustrierend, Zweispielermodus ohne CPU - Fahrer, schwache Fahrphysik, schlechtes Tempogefühl, langweilige Grafik, schlappe Soundkulisse
