Critic Reviews for Born of Bread

Born of Bread is a perfectly baked RPG that, thanks to its varied mechanics, manages to entertain and amuse you from start to finish. Even if it doesn't come to revolutionize the genre... Who can resist a good loaf of bread fresh from the oven?

Born of Bread may look unique but in reality, this is your run-of-the-mill action RPG. Some decent ideas can't disguise the formulaic ingredients on offer. In terms of bread, it's more supermarkets' own than an artisanal sourdough. When it comes to bread-based games, you deserve butter.

Born of Bread is a good game with some interesting and well-executed ideas. Its visual and artistic section fits with the story and characters. However, it ends up being a half-baked bread, it needs to polish some small details in design and combat.

Born of Bread is a fine spiritual successor to the Paper Mario games of old, with a lighthearted story, hands-on combat system, and charming characters all coming together to make for a worthwhile experience. That said, it can feel kind of rough around the edges with a long list of bugs (at least at launch), confusing level designs, and occasionally oddly paced story. We'd recommend Born of Bread to any fans of Mario's traditional RPG adventures, as the positives here do outweigh the negatives, but just bear in mind that this loaf feels like it could've spent a little more time in the oven.

A decent game whose second half is far better than its first.

Born of Bread is an honest attempt but it needed a lot more time in the oven to be truly great.
