Fracture Xbox 360 Review

Console Obsession
30 May 2010
  • Excerpt: A game built around the raising and lowering of terrain is something that you don’t hear about every day, and, in what is a very crowded genre, it’s this that sets Fracture apart from the rest. This manipulating of the ground is something that is so unique, yet so simple, that it’s rather surprising that someone didn’t get there first.

An Ambitious Attempt at Reshaping The Battlefield

Game Informer
22 September 2009
  • Conclusion: Concept: A standard shooter with some amazing terrain deformation powers Graphics: Jet Brody is a detailed character, but ends up looking like an Unreal reject. The terrain deformation produces some great visuals, but the environments don't catch the eye Sound: The excellent Star Wars-like soundtrack ups the intensity and is something I wouldn't mind throwing on my iPod Playability: Blowing the crap out of the ground may sound boring, but it is where most of Fracture's...

  • Excerpt: Summary: [6 out of 10] Fracture is a third person shooter set in 2161 on Earth.  You play as a soldier for the Atlantican army.  The main feature that sets Fracture apart from other third person shooters is that you have weapons that let you deform the terrain.  This terrain deformation lets you  raise or lower the terrain to suit your needs.

  • Summary: Fracture opens with a cutscene detailing an America gripped in a civil war over a dispute regarding genetic engineering, an ambitious issue for a video game to tackle. Sadly, instead of subtly exploring the topic ? la BioShock, it's quickly dropped in favor of generic shoot 'em up action and mindless comm chatter. With no drama to support it, the gameplay has to stand on its own, a task it largely fails to do.

  • Conclusion: The real kicker here is the 1500 games played, which is easy but far from fun. 25 hours of running to a point, over and over and over again, 1500 times to be precise. As if the campaign wasn't boring enough, all the multiplayer modes will put you right to sleep. Another game with a nice sounding concept and a great amount of potential (especially after finding out LucasArts and Day 1 had a hand in its creation) that ultimately amounted to nothing special.

Fracture Review

  • 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: The shoot-em-up games market has always been a cluttered one, which gives the leading developers little room for innovation, but plenty for idea stealing. This often results in games seeming very similar, with one or two obscure features that separate one game from the another. Fracture, for example, seems extremely similar to a combination of Gears of War and Halo 3, which, in concept, doesn’t seem like a bad idea, as both are industry leading titles; however the end...

  • 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.
