  1. The only thing Breed has going for it is its wide variety of vehicles. But in a game with so many serious problems, it's hard to enjoy them for long.
  2. The saddest part about Breed is not that it’s a horrible game; it’s that deep inside there’s a good game. All of the ideas were right, but the execution failed on nearly all aspects.
  3. Don't even bother going online. The game is virtually unplayable.

    I didn’t enjoy Breed very much at all, mostly because of the gameplay issues that creatively cut short an already generic storyline. I also just didn’t care for the way the missions were laid out.

    What makes this whole fiasco all the more depressing is that Breed has a ton of potential.
  6. A ham-fisted and passionless retreat of "Halo." [Aug 2004, p.70]
  7. Inspired moments, such as the vehicles' mulitple weapons systems, are forced from the mind by the relentless slogs across the levels... In the end, you're likely to discover that the real battle is to continue playing. [May 2004, p.100]
  8. There simply aren’t any redeeming aspects to Breed, and perhaps it’s best just to leave it at that.
  9. Considering their utter lack of intelligence, it'd be more accurate to name these guys "Inbreed." [July 2004, p.70]
  10. Rest assured that this is no "March! Off-World Recon," but it’s not quite as good as the pathetic "Medal of Honor: Rising Sun." In a year that has seen the release of the wonderful and technologically gifted "Far Cry," it’s inexcusable of CDV for even contemplating letting Breed out of development hell.
  11. Nearly everything was done half-assed and it shows; Sound cuts out; Graphics are crap for lack of a better word; More bugs than a spider web; Can’t even use the disc as a coaster since I pissed on it.
