I’ve had Breakpoint for a while and after finishing off Wildlands decided to give it a go now I have more time on my hands.
I know it’s had some bad press but surely it cannot he that bad, right?
Well after fine tuning the controls so I can fly the drone and helicopter how I want to, I started playing. I loved Wildlands and it was my chill out game, flying around, taking out bases with my team and just kicking back.
First thing, where the hell is my team? I can see randoms in the base but I just want my own guys who I can order to snipe out the enemy so we can infiltrate areas. A quick bit of Googling and it seems no AI and that Ubisoft may ( or may not) patch it in this year! What! They aren’t are they? Nobody will be playing it and it will cost too much.
I resigned myself to playing as a lone wolf, silently taking out the enemy and was enjoying it. I decided to take on a port that was full of enemies and after dying a couple of times, managed to just leave a couple of enemies. That’s when my Virgin Broadband dipped and I lost contact with the Ubisoft servers and the game dumped me back outside the base, right back at square one!
WTF! This is 2020 and games that let you play SP should not need an always online connection. Just a tick box to let me play on my own would be good but even though plenty of users have asked for it, once again no joy.
Hopefully the next game in the series doesn’t drop so many bollocks and I can go back to loving the series. Really in two minds whether to carry on as I fear for my controller!
