    Fracture has a unique premise of manipulating the terrain to gain advantage over your enemies. However, the main problem with this is that it never feels necessary to actually make an impact on the game. It is needed in the game to get past certain areas but this is only because the developers force it onto the player. The visuals at first can look pretty good for its time but when you start to play more of it the entire game looks out-dated, even for a 2008 game. This is a good rental but the story is so weak there is no point in playing it unless you want to experience what the game-play offers. Collapse

  1. A jarring experience that tries (and fails) to marry a wildly ambitious gameplay dynamic with some of the most disappointingly generic art design we've ever seen. [Nov 2008, p.106]
  2. Fracture is a solid effort that offers a new mechanic to the shooter formula and allows for some exciting new ways to play. Unfortunately, for what it does right in Terrain Deformation, its issues fall with the basics of the genre due to spotty AI and frustrating aiming issues.
  3. Fracture is a good game, despite its flaws; and although it has a lot of lost potential in its story, its distinctive gameplay mechanics allow us to give it enough credit to say it’s worth checking out.
