Critic Reviews for The Riftbreaker

The Riftbreaker is an addictive, complex, and satisfying RTS/bullet hell hybrid, even while it suffers from some very noticeable performance issues.

The Riftbreaker is a genuine challenge throughout. The world is beautiful and the campaign is superb.

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.

The Riftbreaker will throw you on an alien planet both lush and unforgiving, in what could be the perfect mix between a survival RTS and an action/shooter game.

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.‎

A fantastic game for any base-building fans, The Riftbreaker's tight combination of action-RPG and tower-defense elements produce an addictively fun experience well worth the inevitable hours you'll lose to it.

The Riftbreaker is an excellent mix of many interesting genres, which in the new formula can draw you in like a swamp. There is nothing to wonder, you have to take and play!
