Would you want a Breakdown sequel/reboot for this generation?

It's been 10 years since this somewhat obscure game came out for the original Xbox, and here I am wondering why MS hasn't considered reviving it (Been hoping for some news during the Xbox 360's cycle to no avail).

Sure, it had a lot of flaws in terms of gameplay mechanics, but it tried to innovate on things that most first-person games never covered or would cover years later (Ex: Complex hand-to-hand combat, parkour, detailed interaction with your environment, etc...)

If given the right studio, I'm sure this IP could make a strong comeback. Hell, I think this could be a better Xbox One exclusive than Titanfall even!

Hmm, nearly a day later and not a single response. Maybe this game is a lot more obscure than I thought...

I would like a sequel/reboot/remake. I never got to finish the copy I had for the original Xbox. I got stuck at some part in the game, kept on getting killed no matter how many times I tried to beat the section I was at, and so I just gave up.

Dude you just brought back MEMORIES, breakdown was the definition of a sleeper hit. Halo and this game were the two games that turned me into an fps nut. I would like a remake so it can get on peoples radar, then sequels... I completely forgot aboutthat game until now THANKS.

Microsoft fans and Sony fans, can't we all just get along?...

Most people probably haven't heard or remember Breakdown, this dead topic proves that. What a shame.

I didn't care for Breakdown.

^Yeah, I remember playing Halo 1 and 2 thinking: "Man, I wish the Master Chief could high kick an Elite in the face and actually be able to climb up platforms that he'd normally couldn't grab. Plus, one of my biggest peeves about the Elder Scrolls and Fallout games was that you couldn't see your character eat or drink in first person.

Nah man, I'd want a sequel to Spike Out with 4 player online mode. That game rocked at the arcades and I still got my copy on the first Xbox console.

Edit: I too still own Breakdown

So do I, and I also want L4D 3 and TF 3. But we all know that Valve has a little trouble when it comes to releasing a third sequel for their games. I don't even think they've released Half Life 2: Episode 3 yet.
