To the pompous twunt that reviewed this a 10 to counter balance the low scores - are you stupid? Because someone has a different opinion to you, you rate it extra high to try and invalidate their opinion. Do you think that you are superior to others and that your opinion is worth more? BotW gets 100/100 all over the show as does God of War and they are 2 of my least favourite games of allTo the pompous twunt that reviewed this a 10 to counter balance the low scores - are you stupid?

I rate this a 3 but also an excellent buy for some people. It is a good game made in a cheap, nasty way. They should have tried to get assistance from a big company to make this a decent game.
Firstly I don't like the roguelike aspect. I have had levels generate and the starting enemy positions have made levels impossible before I even made a move. It just felt a bit like I got screwed with this being a permadeath game. The randomness is the real killer of this game for me.
The graphics are pretty awful. The screen has a very cluttered feeling and can be a bit much playing at a distance trying to make out the difference between things on screen. At home this is fine where I am 1m away but at my gf house where the TV is about 4m away it is a hard task sometimes and I'm forever leaning forward and having to stand up.
So it is what it is. A grid based puzzle game. A very challenging little puzzler. Very mind taxing and fun. If that sounds up your street great, if not then don't even bother.
It's £11 and for me it is worth £5, get it in the sale. It shows why games like Radiant Dawn for Wii start at £70 on ebay. Radiant Dawn and Fire Emblem in general smash this game out of water.
The production value is just so low it is really bad and I feel they would have been better making this a better looking, more refined 2D game, than the poor looking 3D one it is. It's just a really strange one because there is so much to criticise and a lot to like. I think what we have to remember here is that this is priced close to what Valkyria Chronicles is. There is no way that for the couple of extra quid that VC costs that I would ever consider Into the Breach over it. If you love strategy/puzzlers then this is great but if you are testing the water in the strategy genre this would not be high on my recommendations. Go for an old Fire Emblem, or Valkyria Chronicles. If you like simulator style games and visual novels and want to try out the strategy genre then get Fire Emblem 3 Houses.
Into the Breach just stinks of rock bottom budget.… Expand
