Into The Breach is a brilliant title, a fun, long-lived and easy-to-depend turn-based strategy. After completing the main campaign several times - at different difficulty levels and with the most disparate teams - we still feel the need to return to collect insectoids, to unlock all the achievements and discover the secrets of a game that certainly has a lot to show even after the end credits.

Into The Breach may not be a groundbreaking new incursion in the world of turn-based strategy games but it's certainly a competent effort, even if orthodox at that. A very challenging game with good gameplay mechanics and a variety of levels, Into The Breach could just use a more elaborate plot and some more tutorials to score a few extra points with the players.

Into The Breach is a brutal, uncompromising game of making hard decisions and living with your mistakes, but the short length of battles and endless variety of playthroughs makes for an extremely addictive experience. Though the graphics are nothing special, the gameplay is some of the very best you'll find in the strategy genre on the Switch, and we can easily recommend this to anybody who's looking for an in-depth game that'll make you think. Into The Breach feels right at home on the Switch, and whether you play more at home or on the go, you're more than likely to get plenty of value out of this release.

Into the Breach is an excellent tactical game. It feels like a game of chess with robots and aliens, and it offers a very deep gameplay behind its simplistic looks.

With Into the Breach Subset Games rewrites the tactical gameplay rulebook by removing most of its pages. In doing so, it has created a superlative strategy game.

If you commit and dig in, you'll be rewarded with that rare feeling of accomplishment in a videogame. Not because you leveled up or because you managed to get one over on the game, but because the puzzle feeling of Into The Breach makes the game appear to be extremely fair. I never feel like I've been tricked when I lose, and I never feel like I've done something out of bounds when I win.

A stripped-down strategy game which will hook you in from the get-go, Into The Breach is another triumph from a tiny studio.

Into the Breach provides the same satisfaction on a smaller scale. It’s turn-based tactics distilled, a bite-sized version that still manages to have deep and complicated combat systems to discover within its otherwise-limited scope. Turns out, that’s exactly what I want.

Subset has taken positional play in turn-based tactics to its extreme. The result is at once unique, accessible, and mindbending. Every round is a newly created puzzle with perfectly pitched difficulty, and that is seriously impressive design.
