Reviews are starting to trickle in for Ghost Recon: Breakpoint and they are some of the worst we’ve seen, but hey, at least the memes are great.

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint is an online tactical shooter developed by Ubisoft Paris . It is due to be released worldwide on October 4, 2019, but some people have got their hands on the game today. So, how are the Ghost Recon: Breakpoint reviews looking?

The game has been acknowledged for having somewhat of an interesting a story, but as far as praise goes sadly it ends there. The game is set in an open world environment called Auroa, a fictional island in the Pacific Ocean. The player takes on the role of Lieutenant Colonel Anthony “Nomad” Perryman, a special forces operative sent to the island to investigate a series of disturbances involving Skell Technology, a military contractor based on Auroa.

It’s always a red flag when a publisher sends out review copies of a game at the very last second. It’s usually done as a means to damage control, preventing people from seeing negative reviews before the game hits the stores. This clearly seems to be the case for Ghost Recon: Breakpoint.

Ghost Recon: Breakpoint is a meme

Popular games industry commentary, Angry Joe (AngryJoeShow), gave the “beta” a shot and posted the results on YouTube. After a mere 2 minutes both Joe and his co-operative companion were stuck in the map, something that seemed to happen a lot to them. I guess you could argue that this kind of thing is to be expected from an open world game, but not that frequently. He also made expressed concerns about the stability of the game saying that it constantly crashed and he struggled to load back in to the game.

There’s nothing really there that makes me want to buy this game,” Joe said while giving his impression. He continues, “my first impression of Ghost Recon: Breakpoint is meh. Meh out of 10.”

The comments to Angry Joe’s impression are some of the funniest I’ve seen and make for some great Breakpoint memes.

I guess you could call it Ghost Recon: Low Point.

Sadly, it doesn’t end there. YouTuber DreamcastGuy absolutely ripped the game into shreds calling the game “absolutely evil.” He talks about how the story makes no sense, how glitchy and broken the game itself is, and how what remains of the game is ruined by some “incredibly insidious micro-transactions” that turn it into a pay-to-win style game.

Game journalists can’t stand it either

Even the mainstream media seem to share the same sentiments as these commentators. Since review copies were only just sent out, a lot of respectable games presses are only getting the chance to play the games now, but that hasn’t stopped them from voicing their disappointment. Check out these Ghost Recon: Breakpoint reviews.

Mike Epstein at Games Radar says it “feels like a hodge-podge of contradictions” because the game’s “new ideas seem to be pulling in two different directions.”

Ghost Recon: Breakpoint memes are coming…

Peter Glagowski at Destructoid bars no holds as he absolutely trashes the new Ghost Recon instalment. “I think I’ve reached my Breakpoint,” he writes.

He seems to confirm Angry Joe’s fears about the game’s stability issues.

 “… As soon as Ghost Recon Breakpoint finishes its 30-second loading screen, I’m put underneath the world and killed immediately. This isn’t a one-off occurrence …”

… We accidentally crash our car into a ravine and I jump out. My partner is stuck under the water and can’t exit, the game seemingly deciding his time in this world is over. Instances like this happen in almost every mission we attempt …

It’s a struggle to properly convey how bad Ghost Recon Breakpoint really is. While I’ll reserve final judgement for when I get around to the Ghost War PvP mode, anyone thinking about grabbing this for a single-player or co-op run should look elsewhere. This is not worth your time, money, or effort to see through. Even Wildlands, as much as I disliked it, is a better purchase. “

Where’s our review?

Unfortunately, as much as we’d love to, we will not be reviewing Ghost Recon: Breakpoint. Sausage Roll is not exclusively a games press, we cover all aspects of pop-culture, so with our limited writing staff we have very selective of what our valuable time goes into reviewing. But hopefully this article will give you a good overview on what the general consensus of the game is and help you decide whether or not you are going to purchase this game.

Have you played Breakpoint? If so, what are your thoughts? Is the game as bad as people are claiming or are these simply just over-reactions. Let us know in the comments below. Also, feel free to share your Breakpoint memes with us on social media!
