IGN and Edge knock out Facebreaker at review

Oh dear. IGN’s given Facebreaker 5/10, which EA’s likely to be very pleased at considering Edge just gave it 3/10. From the IGN piece:

Overall FaceBreaker doesn’t deliver on many of its goals. It’s designed to provide a rock-paper-scissor style gameplay experience, but players will likely end up feeling cheated and overly frustrated by the core gameplay. There are too many balancing issues and cheap moves given to some characters to keep players around for more than a couple of hours. The multiplayer options help a bit, but not enough to pull FaceBreaker up from the lower tier of fighters.

We’re saying nothing.
