Critic Reviews for The Riftbreaker
The focus placed by The Riftbreaker's gameplay loop on resource management may be too monotonous for some players. It's a game that focuses on its base-building mechanics more than its Action RPG mechanics. Still, it's a decent mixture of both that can either be loved or hated by players.
I didn’t know what I wanted out of The Riftbreaker. But the result feels both natural and necessary. Of course, you would blend careful base planning with high-speed swarms of monsters. Why wouldn’t we mix these three ideas into one? The RTS strategy, the survival sim resource management, and the tense action all make for a singular experience. This isn’t for everyone, to be sure. Less of a sprint and more of a marathon, the challenge of The Riftbreaker is both sustained and intense. This means things like pacing hiccups feel a lot more potent. Even if the prospect of an extended campaign like this seems daunting, the game’s lush visuals are a soothing balm. If you want something more out of the RTS genre, The Riftbreaker will have what you’re looking for.
In short, The Riftbreaker is a strategy and management title that also adds the action of taking a character in isometric view and that despite having some defects that have not convinced me, in general the game achieves as a result a very interesting proposal, in addition to telling us an interesting story and that gives us challenges, that although they are nothing of the other world, it is a pleasure to seek to solve them in order to advance in this adventure in Galatea 37, a planet that looks very good in the new generation of Xbox Series X / S, and that justifies the exclusivity of the new generation.
