‘Fracture’ arrives in the mail

While others are ensnared in the beta for LBP, I’m getting an ahead look on Fracture, another game from LucasArts. I’m actually a little timid about LucasArts these days, given the life-shortening experience that was “The Force Unleashed.”

While embargo rules prevent me from formally reviewing Fracture until early October, I can at least take solace in the fact that the game works. Instant plus. No random freezing, glitches or anything else that would make the think the game wasn’t finished. The terraforming mechanics take some getting used to, and I get the feeling that playing with dirt is going to get old, no matter how cool the weapons are. We’ll see when I plunge further into the game. One thing that’s making an impact are the physics. I like seeing how stuff falls here.

I still owe you guys some stuff about Resistance 2. I’ll get that up when I carve out a little more time over the weekend. I’m also waiting on approval to check out E for All.
