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.
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.”
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.
