In a way, I hate reviewing budget downloadable first-person shooters. More often than not, they’re simply bad, with poor graphics and lack of polish that can, in a way, be expected of games with a lower budget. Even the good ones often come along with a sense of disappointment because they can’t match up to a full-priced juggernaut of a franchise. In the first-person shooter genre, there are many such juggernauts; it’s easy to feel that the deck is stacked against games like this.
Breach, the downloadable title from Atomic Studios (makers of the controversial Six Days in Fallujah) won’t steal away flocks of players from Call of Duty, nor will it impress the average player who browses downloadable titles once a month. The greatest success of Breach is that it does destruction and cover far better than games like Bad Company 2 or Black Ops, which helps to make it a completely worthy addition to your digital library even with its lack of polish.
