Community Scoop

Blurring the lines between Television and Video Games, Quantum Break's presentation isn't what we're used to in most AAA titles, instead we are treated to 20 minutes of live-action footage in between playable sections, which means that you have a lovely little tea break after intense gunfights and story exposition ready for the main event.

Gameplay itself is satisfying and everything you'd expect from a typical third-person story based game. With the added star power and facial capture from actors, the game is virtually indistinguishable from the live-action segments that you're able to watch. Its unconventional structure makes the game worth playing in itself, so why not get stuck in and get ready to play (and watch) Quantum Break! Its PC release is very welcome.

This game could be a Masterpiece but ...


Quantum Break with a story about time travel and a gameplay focusing on time control has tried to provide a new formula which is found in fewer games. but the real question is : have these innovations been successful? without a doubt the biggest innovation in Quantum Break is mixing up two completely different categories which is playing a game alongside watching a TV series, related to the story but Of course, if you do not watch them, you will not miss the main story, but you will know more about villains of the game. In fact, the TV series is about villains while the game also focuses more on its protagonists. The visual design of the game is stunning, and the simulation of main characters is astonishing . The details in the game are so precise and beautiful that you may have some moments to just look at them. The design of the Quantum Break environment has certainly been great. Quantum Break is not only proud in the graphics, but it can easily be placed among the most graphical titles of the eighth generation. Despite of some little flaws, Quantum Break story can be considered one of the best among shooters and traveling through time games. The gameplay is also so innovative and engaging but it may get a little repetitive through time yet still manages to maintain its powers. Quantum Break is full of lost opportunities, If I want to describe Quantum Break in a sentence, I call it a title which sImply could have been a masterpiece, but the main problem is its presentation which could not provide the masterpiece of its raw material, which has truly the potential of it. Even though with some issues, Quantum Break is still worth the experience, so do not miss it.

a great experience with your power to manipulate time!


In a generation where the number of games in the gameplay and narrative stories of an innovative and eighth generation is less than one hand fingers, the nature of risking to create a work such as Quantum Brick is admirable. the disappointing point is Due to some of the weaknesses in the design and gameplay section, this risk has not entirely led to a strong and profound title in its style, but despite all ?it's the shortcomings, a fun, lovely and, most importantly, special and new game experience! Quantum Brick can entertain you for about 10 hours with a set of different ideas and fascinating parts. The duration of the gameplay may not be great, but it is more than our predictions, and certainly worth to experience. Quantum Brick shows you two side of a coin. Whether you are a good person and what you will do with time, or if you are a negative pole of the story and what will you do using the power. the struggle between positive and negative sides and the power of decision making in both positions is the most important element of the Quantum Brick story.

Great story and interesting setting.


I am very interested in the topic of travel in time and I really liked the realization of this topic in QB. The tragic outcome of experiments with time travel is an interesting setting for this game. The game offers a really interesting story that could easily inspire some new HBO or Netflix hit. I really have fun playing this action packed title. The only downside for me was a cheap final boss that can and will annoy you!

Time is fleeting


Quantum Break will be considered as the best single-player Xbox One console in several directions. From a deep and engaging narrative, proper characterization to engaging gameplay, eye-catching visual graphics and lighting, and its well-designed serial. However, I think the technical drawbacks and design shortcomings of the Quantum Break look as if the builders did not spend much time on detail. It's right that the process of making this game lasted for many years and in general brought a memorable experience, but it could have been much better. Doing this game will be awesome for the first time, but it does not seem to make much interest in multiplying it on the player. Except for the additions or completions of its achievements. The game will be awesome for the first time, but it does not seem to make much interest in repeating it in the player. Except for the incident or completing its achievements. Quantum Break is a new title to experience on the Xbox One console and Windows 10 , but do not expect to face a masterpiece.

Unique and fun game!


The game play was fun and unique. The time mechanics were great, even if the platforming was a touch clunky. The story was fantastic! I don't typically get way into game stories, but this game had me searching for more information on computers and scanning everywhere to get every bit of information that I could find. I also find that stories involving time travel typically feel convoluted, but this was well written. The story and combat were both great! I really enjoyed the mix of game and film and thought they complimented each other well. This is such a unique game that you shouldn't pass up if you enjoy fun and interesting stories with great characters and fun, unique combat.
