    The concept is outrageous, but it works. However, at the end of the day, it is a game about a piece of bread.

    Other than a couple of reasons mentioned previously, I couldn’t find much fault with the game and overall it was incredibly entertaining and I would highly recommend it if you’re interested in a weird but wonderful gameplay experience.

    Either you’ll love I Am Bread for its quirky charm, or you’ll hate it for it’s challenging and thin gameplay.

    I Am Bread is a sandwich short of a picnic, but it's the quirkiness that makes it fun. An awkward control scheme, repetition and frame-rate issues suck some of that fun away, but if you're up for a few laughs then you could do a lot worse than going on a quest to become toast.

    I Am Bread is a quirky title that can be a lot of bun at times, and it will certainly fill a hole before a much more substantial meal comes along. However, the title's control, camera, and performance issues do put a dampener on things, so unless you absolutely love silly experiences of this ilk, we'd recommend keeping your dough in your wallet and putting it towards something a little less stale.

    I Am Bread’s amusing premise quickly shows signs of mold. Early giggles hide a frustrating game with control issues, wonky physics, and a lack of meaningful content. It’s simply not fun to play.

    Overall I can't really recommend I am Bread. Like Bossa Studios' previous title, Surgeon Simulator, the frustration between controls and camera just overpowers the sense of humor it tries to have.

    If you enjoy quirky and unique physics based games such as Surgeon Simulator you should know what to expect! Light-hearted bread-centricIf you enjoy quirky and unique physics based games such as Surgeon Simulator you should know what to expect! Light-hearted bread-centric gameplay, if you're willing to persevere it's extremely rewarding.

    It can be pretty infuriating messing up at the last minute but it's all about the journey! There's more 'game' here than I expected, several modes and bread products. Leaderboards are here too.

    Perhaps the PC market is saturated with similar experiences but I'm happy to see something like this on a console.

    Interesting game. Physics-based game with some comedy. Definitely for people who enjoyed games like Surgeon Simulator or Goat Simulator. I hadInteresting game. Physics-based game with some comedy. Definitely for people who enjoyed games like Surgeon Simulator or Goat Simulator. I had some fun with it for awhile, but the gameplay is actually rather challenging. Luckily, after you fail to not get too dirty they give you a coin that allows you to get as dirty as you want so you can progress, but I even found myself needing a good amount of finagling to get into the toaster. A good game to grab and mess around with, but know what to expect.
