I couldn't stand this game. It was hard to the point of making you want cry. It's great for the first stage when your bullets actually kill people, but once you get to the enemies that require a fist-t-cuff battle, forget it. You won't be going any further.
If you're looking for a kick you in the face hard game, then this is certainly it. I found it too hard to enjoy.
Breakdown was a very anticipated title because none other has focused more on first person fighting like this title. But it was brought down very hard by horrible controls, horrible story, and a horrible graphical design that leads you to say "wow am I in the same place for 8 hours?". This title suffered from many aspects, the gun play was also very dull and boring. Also there is no multiplayer support! This game is a complete avoid at all costs, instead of renting this game please rent Chronicles of Riddick because that game brings the first person fighting to the level it truly should be.
