I was torn between 3 and 4 stars.
on 26 December 2008
Fracture has promise, the plot is interesting enough and the gameplay ideas are pretty interesting too.
Sadly the design leaves you with a impression that they were going for the halo look. Actually the game reminds me of haze a bit as well.
Although I have compared fracture to haze and halo it is not a First Person Shooter, it is a third person shooter and also reminds me a bit of brute force on the original xbox. So already you see a pattern forming, fracture is pretty generic, even the main character could be switched in and out of loads of games.
So why did I give it 3/4 stars? for one, despite being generic it is still fun and the graphics are good too. Also I like the design, despite/because it's a bit like halo. It is a good sci fi shooter, not a great one but not everygame can be a masterpeice, not every game can revolutionize gaming.
I don't think everyone will like it as much as I have been but it is well worth checking out the demo, as it is because of the demo I bought it. I actually enjoyed the beginning of the game more in game thanm when playing the demo.
