Turning the simple act of making toast into a Herculean task, I Am Bread is as vexing as it is irresistible.

More game than you might expect, but still best played for an audience.

The best bread simulator ever made, and despite the rampant silliness there's some inspired gameplay mechanics and level design baked in.

I Am Bread's amusing premise quickly shows signs of mold. Early giggles hide a frustrating game with control issues, wonky physics, and a lack of meaningful content. It's simply not fun to play.

In I Am Bread, both the joke and the game carry on far too long.

Still, when I think about I am Bread as a whole, I'm reluctant to say it's good. It's a silly idea and it seems like developer Bossa Studios had a lot of fun building all of the different modes, but I wish I were having that much fun playing it.

Amidst the recent spate of so-called simulators, I Am Bread manages to stand out as one of the more ludicrous creations. The controls are relatively easy to grasp and once you're done with the main missions, the extra modes put a different twist on proceedings, but as always with these games, it's really at its best when you can share the nonsense with others.

I Am Bread is for a very special kind of gamer. It's for a patient soul, someone who appreciates the absurd, and someone who wants a break from the norm. I appreciate I Am Bread for what it is and the hilarity that comes along with physics based games. But it's a take it or leaven it deal in this case. Either you'll love I Am Bread for its quirky charm, or you'll hate it for it's challenging and thin gameplay.

I Am Bread is a sandwich short of a picnic, but it's the quirkiness that makes it fun. An awkward control scheme, repetition and frame-rate issues suck some of that fun away, but if you're up for a few laughs then you could do a lot worse than going on a quest to become toast.
