  • 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.

  • Conclusion: I really thought this was going to be an awesome game. I mean, I was really smiling when I put this into the tray. That smile eventually turned into a neutral look as I plodded through the predictable levels. In the end, I just wanted the act to be over so I could play something else.

  • Conclusion: The terrain deformation, a few cool weapons and the multiplayer salvage this from being complete junk. All in all, there must be at least 100 better ways to spend 60 bucks. Personally, I can think of a few naughty things right away, but to each his own.
  • Pros: Enjoyable multiplayer, a few cool weapons to toy around with;
  • Cons: Run-of-the-mill gameplay, it's a carbon copy of most top shooters, crappy story and unoriginal design and art direction.

  • Summary: By most accounts, the future's going to be a terrible place. Books, movies, and games typically aren't kind when they predict the plight of the human race, and Fracture is no exception.
  • Pros: Great soundtrack, Multiplayer Excavation mode is cool, Collecting data chips encourages creative terraforming
  • Cons: Terraforming is vastly underutilized, Many derivative elements, Tons of frustrating, cheap deaths

  • Conclusion: The physics that enable you to make the earth move certainly work and will provide laughs in abundance for the first hour or so. However, when everything else about Fracture is a retread of shooters past, it’s hard to feel anything else but disappointment that the brilliant gimmick has been...

  • Excerpt: A novel concept, but Fracture ultimately fails to deliver. Hopefully the terraforming concepts can be applied to another title, in the meantime this looks like being just a rental.
  • Pros: Terraforming is a great idea. The grenades are innovative. Multiplayer may be a saving grace.
  • Cons: It's repetitive, linear and too easy. Cutscenes are shocking. A boring solo campaign.
