My biggest disappointment is that Michael isn’t actually blind. During the scene where MCs met him I thought “If he’s blind and possibly mute (which I believed was the reason behind his electronic voice) but still a leader of criminal organisation, he must be super smart and capable. A criminal who doesn’t enter actual combatt due his disability but plans everything? Hell YEAH! I woudn’t mind being an underling for such dude.” My hopes were brutally crushed when he turned out to be just an ordinary guy.
What also bothered me is that MC doesn’t have a clear objective. Why do they help Archangels, what do they want to achieve? Some games let players chose motivation for main character, some have an already set goal for them. In Breach I can more or less guess what MC might want but it never gets brought up in the game. Do they want to do a right thing and put Archangels in jail (if playing as a detective), learn about their parents as Gabriel suggested in the beginning, protect Mouse, amass money, make valuable connections or earn favors? We don’t really know. Which is very unfair since side characters all have their own goals: Mouse wants to help MC, Justin pays off his debt and Carly wishes to clear her family name. I’m not sure about Kaz since I didn’t get enough time to hang out with all crew members.
It’s understandable that a lot of effort went into weapon/mask/wardrobe customisation and all game variables must be awfully hard to juggle but some flavor text or ability to joke or a motivation for MC just to shape them out more wouldn’t have hurt.
I also have a question
Is Gabriel MCs brother or some other relative? He puts a lot of trust into them by making MC a crew leader straight away which is strange. I also played Game+ as a cop and Gabriel was genuinely sad that MC decided to stick with FBI. He also knew they were an informant all along? Whew, too much trust for some rando criminal. If I’m right, that’s a pretty neat twist especially on a detective playthrough since Mouse is dead and MC doesn’t have anyone close left aside from potential brother/cousin/whatever Gabriel who’s their enemy.
If I’m missing some crucial information please forgive me. I only played through the game twice.
Forgot to mention it earlier. For some reason sometimes when injured there was an option for MC to weeb speak. I think that was the most surprising revelation in the whole game for me. Protagonis is secretly a weeaboo who shows their true colours only in dire situations.
