PC games: Breed

Breed is a first-person shooter in which players can command an array of sci-fi vehicles. Its implementation gives it a different edge from Halo and it has some of the biggest playing fields we’ve ever seen. Breed is definitely one to watch for and could well be a surprise hit on its release.

The setup is simple. Humanity is under threat from an alien race known as the Breed, and Earth sends two motherships to retake some lost colonies on Mars. While this happens, the Breed have taken over Earth and started to terraform our planet to suit their requirements because they really are very, very naughty.

Naturally it is your job, with the help of five team-mates that can be individually controlled, to eradicate the Breed and save survivors using pretty much anything at your disposal.

The development team has included several features that make this game stand out. First, there’s the seamless transition between the dropships in space and Earth — there’s no ugly loading times. Second, the huge well-designed environments contain more than enough detail to compete with bigger developers’ titles.

The artificial intelligence is particularly impressive for both your team-mates and the Breed. And there are innumerable ways to complete missions thanks to the wide array of weaponry and usable vehicles in the game, giving the player a certain amount of freedom.

The single-player missions were fun but you should really take Breed as the multiplayer entity. With so many types of vehicles and co-operative options to choose from, there’s no doubt Breed will rock.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
