  • Conclusion: Over the years, many Japanese developers have avoided the Xbox. This is mainly for the fact that it is an American system, and thus, the Japanese weren’t too fond of it. A few Japanese developers have tested the Xbox waters to see if developing for it would be profitable, and now Namco is giving it a shot. They have made a new, innovative game called Breakdown. How does it stack up against all the other Xbox games out there? Find out in my review of Breakdown.

  • Conclusion: Overall (8/10) If you are a fan of the sci-fi genre, you are sure to enjoy the story and environments. If you are more of an action/adventure gamer you may be disappointed by the linearity or the lack of interactive elements. On the other hand, if you are a fan of typical FPS and want a decent story to justify your actions (like me), you will end up impressed with Breakdown.

  • Conclusion: The idea behind breakdown is to keep you glued in first person view and never stray. This may sound normal to Half life players but this game has fist person fighting. I know first person fighting isn't new but i do know that this has the best of the first person fighting (refered from here on as FPF). The graphics are Excellent in this game and your and other character models are all excellent as well. The "cracks" in your arm look great as well.

Original and inventive..but floored

  • Summary: Breakdown. This game uses an excellent 1st person hand to hand combat mode for most of your encounters with the enemy and the twisting plot is completely immersive. The (occaisionally trippy) visuals are well executed, and although the levels are pretty bland early on they become much more interesting as you progress through to the later stages of the game.

A Highly Original Yet Misunderstood Game

  • Summary: I believe that Breakdown is one of the best games that I have played this year. It has a fantastic story (equal to that of KOTOR and Max Payne 2), wonderful first person fighting (the only time I have successfully seen it used), great character immersion and even good platforming. In fact the only pour point about the game is the gun control.
