  • Summary: "Aliens - get lost!" This is your one and only thought upon your return to Earth in the year 2610. Commanding humankind's lone surviving battleship, you are forced to realize that the devastating war the Breed waged in the distant Besalius system was nothing other than a diversion! While the battle was raging far away, the aggressive aliens took over Earth. Now is the time to come to the aid of your home planet! Some humans have surely survived the Breed invasion: search for them and use your wits and cunning to organize resistance. Discover your oppressors' weaknesses and strike at them without mercy. Your suicide squad has only one goal: to annihilate the Breed! [CDV Software] Expand

  1. It offers a very nice graphical engine, great voices and sound effects, and an incredibly addictive and intense story line.
  2. Your teammates, who are supposed to be an asset, are more of a nuisance then support. They won’t take defensive positions well and are easily picked off.
  3. If it weren't for random crashes and long start ups, the game would have been much more enjoyable.
  4. Solid graphics and music, decent level design and clever use of vehicles. The Achilles' heel is clearly the squad mate artificial intelligence, which virtually ruins the whole play experience.
  5. Don't even bother going online. The game is virtually unplayable.
  6. A ham-fisted and passionless retreat of "Halo." [Aug 2004, p.70]
  7. 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.

    I agree, this game did fail, but it's potential was limitless. Something about the unriveled 100-square-mile maps, destructive environments and ability to fly into space keeps bringing me back to this disastrous, yet would-be revolutionary thing of a game. I even went as far as purchasing a second copy to keep for collection. Expand

    I read the articles on Breed and thought yeah right! it looks great. I was wrong! Please don't make the same mistake that I did, don't buy it, just look how quickly its gone down in price, it's because no one wants it. Rightfully so. Expand

    What a complete waste. I played the demo, patched the demo and guess what? It still sucked. Bad glitches ( getting stuck alot ) STUPID A.I If my teamates acted that dumb in a war, I would personaly shoot them myself. It was me and 2 teamates trying to take out a sniper tower. I hide behind a large rock while as I spammed my regroup button. Guess what? One of my teammates stood there spinning in circles. The other runs off towards the tower shooting blindly...they both die. The graphics are ok, but not good. The cool part is the ship flying in the atmosphere and loading your troops in the ships. But the physics suck and trying to land a ship and unload your troops in impossible with a sliding ship on FLAT ground. That thing is suppose to weigh ( est over a few dozen tons ) But yet its skidding on flat ground...come on. I think this game has been bred into trash. Expand
