I was flipping through the Oxford dictionary to find the definition of “Wild West” and this game came up. BROKE PROTOCOL is essentially the poor man’s Grand Theft Auto, however, there are key differences. This game is crazy and you might love it, or be afraid of it like I am.
There is no story, you spawn into a world with towns, cities, and sections of nature. There seems to be a world of civilians, law enforcement, and criminals that dwell in this small but dense world. You are given the choice to do, anything. Do you want to be a criminal? You can do that. Want to be a police officer? You can do that. Steal cars, helicopters, help people, kill people, rob people, you name it. The sky’s the limit.
Graphics & Gameplay
The graphics come in a very blocky & cartoony style. Personally, I love it since it’s very practical and easy on the eyes despite the lack of polish. However, I can imagine it turns away many people. The gameplay is simple and easy to learn. Nothing fancy going on here and the overall game mechanics are perhaps too simple and janky making you feel at times limited despite the fact the game has so many choices at any given moment. The game doesn’t run particularly smoothly for whatever reason, it certainly feels like it was made by someone who doesn’t have much experience in making videogames. However, this almost adds to the chaos and fun of the game because even the civilians don’t really operate properly. Running into walls, cars driving off the road, and other goofy things are just a natural part of life in BROKE PROTOCOL.
This game even features a full survival mechanic where the player must eat and drink to live along with seeking medical attention if they are wounded. You can loot items off dead people, enter almost any building, take jobs, and live an ordinary life delivering pizza. It’s actually really bizarre. This may be the strangest game I’ve ever reviewed.
Where this game shines is in its many community servers and modded levels. Dozens to choose from and they can be anything from zombie worlds, battle royals, or just pure chaos of everyone killing each other. The game has proven to essentially be endless and therefore if you’re okay with the subpar gameplay and graphics, you could put hundreds of hours into this game without doing the same thing twice. The game allows for up to 100 players to be on a single server at the same time.
The community is one of the scariest parts of this game for me and is the reason I won’t be returning to this game anytime soon. It’s filled with youngsters. Whether they are screaming over their mic, randomly cursing at everyone, killing everyone for no reason, or trying to take you on meaningless and boring adventures only to kill you at the end of it. Kids rule this game and it terrifies me. As someone who prefers military simulators with slow pace combat where adults work together to achieve a difficult task with teamwork. BROKE PROTOCOL is a chaotic world where there’s no goal, other than surviving the wild ride it takes you on. Your next best goal is trying to make sense of it all.
It’s really hard to say anything concrete about this game. The kids seem to love it. Anyone who wants a world that may lack polish and gameplay but gives the player(s) complete freedom may love this game. I am not that person, as much as I love freedom. Without some kind of task, things feel like they fall apart. I feel like a dog in a colorful ball pit with children all around screaming for no particular reason. Fun for the children but I’m just horrified and overwhelmed.
