Breaking Bad has been one of the most successful TV shows of all time. Millions of viewers enjoyed this fiction story from the time it first aired on AMC at the beginning of 2008. More than a decade later, Breaking Bad: Criminal Elements is being introduced into the Android catalog. This game blends strategy, management, and RPGs to submerge you into a bunch of easily recognizable settings from Vince Gilligan’s production. These iconic settings will also witness you trying to make methamphetamine while controlling all the phases that surround this clandestine business.
A game that follows the Breaking Bad universe religiously
The first thing that should be noted about Breaking Bad: Criminal Elements is that it has the show’s official license. In fact, you’ll notice that each character is accurately represented. You’ll easily recognize Walter White, Jesse Pinkman, Saul Goodman and Gus Fring. Any fan of the show will also get a kick out of reading some of their infamous phrases in the legendary scenes from this hit show.
Yet another aspect that should be noted is that the game includes carefully-designed zenith views of the Breaking Bad settings. These 3D settings will fill you with nostalgia when you reminisce of the Los Pollos Hermanos restaurant chain, the car wash or the famous desert where Walter White lived his adventures alongside the Mexican characters. Just keep in mind that you have to complete different levels of the game to unlock each corner of the map.
Create an empire from your motorhome
Breaking Bad: Criminal Elements challenges you to manage all the resources available in order to amass your fortune. At first, you’ll have to survive with just the basic utensils found in your motorhome. But don’t worry, you’ll have all the essentials to start making the methamphetamine that’ll help you invest and unlock new elements. Although the controls of the game are pretty easy to master (in part because of the automated nature of a bunch of processes), the different options on your screen could become overwhelming.
Breaking Bad: Criminal Elements and its outdoor battles
Perhaps the most entertaining part of Breaking Bad: Criminal Elements takes place outside your lab on wheels. The outdoor settings let you participate in really interesting outdoor fights against other characters. Here’s where you’ll be given the option to strategically place vehicles, buildings, and allies who can shoot against your rivals. In fact, you have to unlock different characters to form a gang. The only downside is that it’s missing a more manual battling system.
If you can actually defeat your rivals in each battle, you’ll be rewarded with a pretty hefty amount of money. As soon as your fortune starts growing, you can enter the store to purchase elements and characters that can help you on your drug-making quest. Keep in mind that leveling up the buildings and vehicles you’ve previously placed is also a must. That’s the only way to become stronger and defeat all your rival gangs and the police.
A true delight for any fan of the show
Breaking Bad: Criminal Elements is one of those games that don’t offer anything new as far as the strategy and management genre. However, the official license and accurate visuals turn this game into a true delight for any fan of the show. We would especially recommend this game to anyone who religiously watched each and every single Breaking Bad episode. Although the battles and organizational elements definitely leave room for improvement, the nostalgia factor is always welcomed. This is especially true if it fits inside our Android.
