Fracture

 

The frantic pace is this games worst enemy. The year is 2161 and everything has gone to hell. The Midwest is under water thanks to global warming, and the east...

Multiplayer is amazing ; Interesting story ; Nice concept

Concept gets old after a while ; Bland environments that look too similar ; Much too often gets too hectic

Fracture

 

Moving mounds of dirt with a gun isn't quite enough to put Fracture ahead of the pack.

So by limiting the use of your gimmick, Fracture takes a hit in the gameplay department, because outside of this single weapon there isn't enough going on here to set it apart from the list of other like-minded shooters on the market, and those that...

Fracture

 

Conflict presented in Fracture began with a series of natural disasters that ripped North America into two halves: the east and west. Through years of evolution, the Atlantic Alliance on the East Coast relied on cybernetic technology to survive, while...

Controlled terrain deformation is revolutionary ; Multiplayer is almost too fun and fast ; Great high-def a/v presentation

Far too linear single player campaign ; Inconsistent AI

Aside from going after Achievements or Trophies, there's really no reason to return to the single player campaign after blasting through it. The multiplayer modes, however, are hard to walk away from to begin with despite simple old school modes. For...

Fracture is full of ups and downs, and we don't just mean the terrain.

Fracture Review for the PS3

 

I will make the high places low, and the low places high.

True, on-the-fly terrain modding; Good presentation; Unique gameplay hook, even in solo play; Interesting game world; Multiplay gives the game decent replay legs

that you will want more of quickly.; Repetitive; Dumb AI

Fracture

 

Has the strangest shooter gimmick in years…

Interesting gimmick ; Bright, colorful graphics ; Deep back story

Linear level design ; Shoehorning of titular gimmick ; Generic non-gimmick elements

This is an above-average shooter, with a semi-original concept that works only when it blends with the rest of the game. Still, Fracture is a fun diversion from the fact that we're all going to be underwater in around 100 years.

Fracture

 

Terrain deformation isn't quite enough to make a great single-player game, but multiplayer is a different story.

Crazy addictive multiplayer; a few innovative weapons; terrain deformation offers occasional thrills

Terribly repetitive; lousy enemy AI; derivative and inconsequential plot; frequent performance dips

Fracture

 

If you don't know by now, Fracture is your basic action title set in the future. Global warming has literally split the country in half, and then a classic futuristic scenario (genetic modification) causes tension between already separated states. Add...

New type of gameplay with player controlled terrain deformation ; New weapons ; Solid storyline that begs to be explored more

Only one vehicle ; Since when did Roger Corman become in charge of voice acting ; Aiming on the altered landscape isn't perfect

It's too bad that LucasArts is giving all of its marketing to the Star Wars game that was released a couple of weeks ago. Fracture deserves more attention because it is an innovative game that brings something new to the table.

Fracture Game Review - Playstation 3

 

It's the year 2161, and because of generations of environmental neglect the United States has been ravaged by a series of catastrophes such as floods and earthquakes that have literally split the country in two, creating a fracture in evolutionary...

You're looking for a no-frills shooter that is easy to pick up and play, but which offers a unique gameplay mechanic

If you're a gamer with a "been there, done that" attitude, the terrain deformation may not be enough to warrant a purchase considering the lack of story development

The story is a classic reflection of the American Civil war, which sees General Sheridan defecting to the Pacifican States in an effort to save his diseased daughters’ lives through genetic modification. After throwing the nation into a civil war, you...

Fracture

 

Fracture is one of those games that you hear about and think it all sounds pretty cool. A sci-fi shooter featuring a futuristic war fueled by genetic and terrain modification technology? Yeah, that could be okay. Then you actually get to playing, and...

Fracture makes all the mistakes of the generic shooter and hangs onto the hope that its one gimmick is enough to bail it out. It isn't. In fact, it's not even close. The trappings are uninspired and dirt slinging is insufficient as a substitute for...

Product Specifications

Fracture advances players to the year 2161, where the effects of global warming have altered the planet's landscape, and a clash in ideologies over human enhancement places society on the threshold of war. In utilizing the core game play mechanic of Fracture, a destructive next-generation technology known as terrain deformation, players are equipped with an arsenal of futuristic weaponry to strategically reshape their surroundings on the fly. Every action they perform dynamically reshapes the earth in ways no video game has ever seen. Players set foot on the front lines of this epic conflict in the role of Jet Brody, a demolitions expert fighting for the Atlantic Alliance, who rely upon cybernetic enhancement. Pitted against the genetically enhanced soldiers of the Pacifican army, players will experience a revolution in 22nd-century warfare. When Brody throws a tectonic grenade onto a level battlefield, the ground blasts upward providing access to otherwise unreachable areas or providing cover against approaching enemies. Surrounded on all sides by Pacifican forces, Brody heaves a vortex grenade, creating a swirling tornado-like mass of boulder, dirt and debris to dispatch his foes. These are just a few samples of the possibilities for terrain deformation. Players not only change the battlefield - they change the face of the battle itself.
