  • Summary: Nanobreaker is a fast-paced 3D action game in which the main character wields a powerful, shape-shifting Plasma Blade to defend mankind from deadly nanomachines. Players will be able to slash through hordes of enemy units and grab them for offensive attacks. In Nanobreaker's futuristic world, Nano technology was originally developed to enrich humankind, but the nanomachines suddenly went awry. The machines began to harvest the blood of humans and the iron of buildings in an effort to construct an army of monster machines. It's up to the player to combat this threat and save the world from apocalypse. [Action] Expand

  1. Carving into an enemy with Jake's Plasma Blade carries a weight and reaction so polished, the result is poetry in motion rather than simple swordplay. [Feb 2005, p.66]
  2. Simply put, when Nanobreaker’s not frustrating, it’s boring.
  3. The story spews more cheese than blood, the wonky camera hides foes, and the duo of poorly placed save points and lack of health pick-ups can turn Nanobreaker into a controller-smashing affair. Proceed with caution. [March 2005, p.120]

    Outside of some annoying platform-jumping bits, the game's environments are mostly non-interactive and serve only as gloomy backdrops on which to thrash countless bio-mechanical baddies.
  5. If you want to be technical about it, Nano Breaker really isn’t all that bad; it’s just uninspired and trite, un-compelling and absolutely average. It’s another hum-ho action title that won’t likely entertain unless you’ve been hiding under a rock for the past five years.
  6. The environments are flaccid, the gameplay tepid and the overall product is just plain limp.
  7. It can be difficult, but usually this difficulty stems from horrible camera angles, slow animations, and ill-positioned save points.

    This game is great. There is no reason to compare it to DMC. This title is an action adventure with a good quest. DMC is an action game broken into chapters and with a custom combo system. This game's combo system is well made and each weapon is used well on different enemies. I have had more fun on this game than any of the DMCs. Collapse
