Atomic Games’ first-person multiplayer shooter Breach was released for Xbox Live Arcade and Microsoft Windows today, and it looks like the reviews have been quick to start appearing. In fact, it looks like the game has been getting a pretty good response from the critics.
The first review we came across is from Martin Baker over at gamersnexus.net. Martin gave the Breach game an overall score of 84/100, and claimed that it’s one of the best looking XBLA games he’s ever seen. One of the downsides he mentioned however was the lack of a single-player mode.
Meanwhile, Jim Girgenti from gamingbolt.com gave the game an impressive 8.5 out of 10, and claimed it to be one of the best arcade shooters on the market today. One downside according to Jim is the fact that there’s not much room for quick aim sniping, which leaves snipers vulnerable close up.
However, one of the things that appeared to impress him is the way that players earn more XP for killing someone that’s a higher level than themselves. Another review we took a look at is from Greg Giddens over on the resolution-magazine.co.uk website.
As Greg notes, there may not be a huge amount of game modes offered in Breach, but the variety is good enough. The overall score given by Greg, who described Breach as fun and addictive, was a 6/10. The final review comes from Neil Aldis over at strategyinformer.com.
Neil also seemed impressed with the XP system in Breach, describing it as a nice touch. Although he did go on to mention a few of the problems he experienced, which included the game crashing several times and lag. You can read the full reviews via the links above.
