For those who are into turn games and mechs, this game will definitely pique your interest and satisfy your fancy. And especially for those who are into challenges, this game will definitely challenge your brain to outwit your opponent before you fail one of those bonus missions. Though, if you're looking for something a little more story-based, you may want to look somewhere else as there is no linear path of story for Into the Breach.

I gave Into the Breach about ten hours of my time, and while I don't feel like that time was wasted, I also have no desire to go back and play it again. After one or two playthroughs, you'll have seen just about everything the game has to offer.

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.

I enjoyed my time with the game well enough -- just don't expect to be converted if you're not already into these types of adventures.

Little big turn-based strategy with simple graphics does not disappoint you. It is unique, just a bit eventless after several attempts.

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.

Tight, lean, and expertly crafted, rarely is so much accomplished with so little.

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.

A good roguelite strategic game with focus on tactics and on the rise of the personal ability. Unfortunately there are same balancing problems, but nothing that could ruin the experience.

I enjoyed my time with Into the Breach, and it's a great game to pick up and play for a few minutes at a time. I hope that it finds its way to mobile devices or the Nintendo Switch because it would be perfect for playing on the go.

Into the Breach is a mechanically perfect game that is surrounded by mediocre design decisions. I absolutely adore the tactics-style gameplay and how simplistically the game can convey so much information. But with the only run variance being the three pilotable mechs and the potential upgrades, things just start to feel "same-y" after not too long. For those, like myself, who can easily fall in love with intelligently designed mechanics, there is a lot to love about Into the Breach, but it's not as well-rounded as it could be.

Into the Breach presses all the right buttons to keep tactical strategy fans hooked, and many will come back over and over again despite any shortcomings they may perceive. I, for one, plan to waste away many more afternoons saving the world from an infestation of bugs. Then, once I finish spraying my house and yard, I plan to play some more Into the Breach.

Into the Breach is a great turn-based strategy title, with very original and tremendously versatile main mechanics. In the long run it suffers the same as many procedural titles and it gets a bit tiresome, but it does not tarnish what is a great title.

If you’re not a major tactical strategy fan you’ll probably feel a bit overwhelmed by the challenge Into the Breach poses, but if this is your wheelhouse it should absolutely satisfy. While less elaborate than the likes of Kingdom Battle the pacing and style are also probably better suited to play on the go or enjoyment in quick bursts since most maps are about surviving a set number of turns rather than having to eliminate all threats. While it isn’t likely appropriate for a mainstream audience with its steep learning curve fans of strategy games will likely enjoy this addition to the Switch library.

The pixel art style and isometric strategy battles remind me of all the good parts of games like Final Fantasy Tactics. Subset Games have a lot of experience in developing rich roguelikes, with previous title FTL standing out, and they’ve used that experience to blend with this strategy game to make a title that is definitely worth a look.

Into the Breach is another title that confirms Subset Games ability to innovate turn-based strategy with creativity and a simple approach. Playing chess with altering time robots has never been so utterly delightful!

It may not consume your whole year like FTL did, but Into The Breach is a tighter and more concentrated experience that's well worth the money.

Motivating turn based strategy roguelike with tactical depth, which remains exciting in every single lap despite simple graphics.

Into the Breach has become a new Switch go-to game for me, with addicting play and a high degree of tactical depth intermingling with its cataclysmic atmosphere.

I am a huge fan of FTL, its premise, game play, style and utter nonsense randomized paths and subset games have only gone a dropped another gaming bomb on me. Into The Breach has been an incredible game to play.
