10's across the board.
I have to say I wasn't too sure about this game, it looked interesting but it seemed like I would get bored with it pretty quickly, I even considered pirating it first, but then bought it on impulse and omg was it worth it.

It is so much fun, stacking up and breaching rooms honestly never gets old. If you're like me and are an avid Arma player, Tactical Shooter and Strategy Fan, this game is right down your alley. It reminds me a lot of the old Police Quest: SWAT games. I hope to see a Breach and Clear 2 someday with the ability to Rope down from a ceiling or helicopter, use a seperate sniper team as support, as well as the ability to use chagres on walls, and also stack up multiple times during a mission. That being said I still love this game and see a lot of potential for future titles.

PS. The music is fantastic.

Very indie, however the gameplay is fun, and some levels are extremely hard without being impossible. You just have to approach them as a puzzle.

Awesome. Just........Awesome. If you like tactical military sims, this is a great purchase. A friend gifted me this as a birthday present, but I would probably have purchased it in any event. This game is defintely worth the 17 CDN, if you like turn based tactical games from the third person perpective. Games that are similar like Frozen Synapse, and XCom. Weapons are upgradeable, tactical gear and equiptment to make your soldiers more efficient on the battlefield are also upgradeable. Different nationalities garner different bonuses. I am playing Canada's JTF2 right now and am finding clearing a level without taking casualties a fun and rewarding experience. No crashes or bugs so far that I have found. The graphics are good for the type of game it is, and the sound is well done. Only two hours in but I will not be uninstalling this game for a long time. As of now I have not found anything about this game that I do not like. I will update this review in the event that I do. Recommended. 4 out of 5 stars.

I have been playn this game for a little while now. Wish I would have started play'n it alot sooner. Its awesome IMO. The game is easy to pick up and learn. Its all about loadouts and team tactics in a SRT/BC format. The DLC is kinda what ever but it is a must if you are going for 100% achievements. The game is highly replayable and has some semi tough difficulty settings. Silver (the game currency) is a little hard to make a ton but once you getr your first team/squad to all rank 30 its not to bad. The game also features a hardcore mode so when you die ....well your dead I for one like this feature in alot of games. So if your looking for a diamond in the rough its safe to say pick this game up.

Excellent game. It starts off simple, but I found myself increasingly drawn in. The different game modes add a lot of replay value. Definitely worth the $15.

Really cool game! It's like SWAT just in a "special" Turn-Based way.


Instead of planning the movements of one unit after another, in this game ALL your orders of all your units will be executed simultaneously. This makes this game a way higher dynamic than conventional turn-based games.

Features:
- You can choose your special unit (KSK, NAVY, SAS, etc. ...)
- Customize every squad-member
- Different classes/skills
- Unlock a huge amount of weapons
- Upgrade/Customize your weapons/gear

Breach & Clear is the kind of game that is easy to learn, but takes some serious skill to master. While you will spend a lot of time staring at the different locations to put your limited team, once you end the turn and the action starts it's over in a flash. Getting sub 15 second clear times on multiple room levels is one of the fuzziest feelings I've gotten playing a turn based game and the game does a good job of trying to teach you the idea of efficiency of movement.

If you, like me, grew up playing the OLD Rainbow Six games, then this will feel very familiar, as you plan out the movements of your team every turn and then they rush to execute that plan. Play with Permadeath on, it adds an element of stress in the later levels when there's some very hard to handle corner and hall combinations that the enemy will easily take advantage of even on the easier AI settings. Great game, 9/10.

It's like SWAT but topdown. It brings good memories of tactical shooters. In a sesne this is a cross of XCOM with SWAT that turned out really good

Very well rounded game, fun to play very intense tactical play. I enjoyed every bit of it I have spent, though it needs a little more content and difficulty to unlocking items. It also seems to have low replayability with limited game modes and missions. But overall a good game.

Well first of all this is a tactical realisim game and if you play Call of duty or Battlefield i highly reccomend you DONT get this game. If you were to get this game im sure you would be very confuzed at the start and would have to watch the tutorial over and over again because im a Arma fan and i thought it was challenging at first.

If you are one of those guys who love to be tactical and spend time planning things out and stuff like that the game is for you because your not the one that shoots. Your the leader of a squadron of 4. This means you tell them where to walk and at the speed and stuff like that. You can command them to throw a greanade but you are not the one who plays as them.

I really like this game and it is very fun and im continueing through the campaign.

Great Game. It has a slightly unpolished feel to it, but I haven't had any glitches. Similar to Xcom but oth sides go at the same time which is a nice change.

This game at times can be a breeze but dont let that deter you from buying it. Many of the levels are very hard to get a perfect score on. it features four squad men and it is your job to take out the terorrist forces. easy enough. try it out yourself.

Great game that takes a lot of thought and planning. The permadeath system is awesome and the fact that you can choose your special force and the gear they use really changes things up.

Ever had 15mins or 30, where you wanted to play SOMETHING that had some "leveling" to it but did not want to commit a

ton of time to?

This game is PERFECT for a Quick Have Fun and Power down or just Play for hours if you want.


A great game.

If you are into CQB tactics, this game is for you. It requires planning and is a turn based game. I like the fact that you can customized your special operatives with different gears, and xp points. Rushing into a scenario without planning, means your guys can be taken out easily. There are several game modes, so you can learn how to play it. Your squads can composed of different soldiers from different armies of the world. Thumbs up from me.
