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.

Reviews for Quantum Break

Not Bad but not interesting

Quantum Break is the lastest game from Max Payne's developpers Remedy Entertainment. In this game we play as Jack Joyce, a man who happened to gain the power to control time itself and who is in war with an evil organisation that is trying to use the very same power to its own benefit. The story is nice but unfortunately didn't develop a lot of ideas out of it. Actually, Quantum Break is your average shooter with all the genre's cliches and Jack's powers are just gimmicks you've already seen before in other games. It's not a bad game but don't expect it to be a groundbreaking experience.

Good story, definitely buggy, and gameplay only ok

I do recommend it, but with some reservations. It is only worth a sale price. It has ok gameplay, but definitely has some issues. It still has quite a few bugs and in the 15-hour play-through, it crashed numerous times. The cover system and gunplay was ok at best. You push through it for story. The story itself was enjoyable and live action stuff was passable. I would've just preferred more interspersed in-game cinematics though. The story does an actual good job with time travel but I won't spoil the details. It adhered to how we think differences would work between changing the past and the future.

Interesting but no so great in realization

One of the most anticipated games in last 2 years finnaly arrived, but didn't landed as smoothly as we hoped. Story behind this movie-like game is very interesting and probably is one the best things in this game. Eccentric scientist, project of great potential and failed experiment "cooked" base for very good action game which could've been great if the technical part of the game was done better. Even the game looks fantastic, it is very poorly optimized, especially for Radeon graphic cards (even with stronger ones), requires substancial amount of RAM memory and doesn't run so smoothly even on i5 processors. So prepare your pockets and prepare for upgrade if you want to play this game in full details and unleash its graphic potencial. If we bypass that, gameplay itself is very nicely done, and time manipulation effects are great and provide numeruos combinations of attacks. Famous actors did their part of the job very good, and that is of course giving the game greater note of reality. Good game, interesting story, good actors, devastating time manipulation tricks are of course something that every good gamer should try - off course with enough machine resources


Quantum Break is not the masterpiece that many anticipated coming from who comes and being as it was one of the flagships of Microsoft for this first half of 2016, nevertheless who looks for a good shooter with a complicated history and to which it has been lent to him A lot of attention will find the last of his shoe. With a little more attention for the shootings in terms of finish and quantity and a tolerable optimization in compatible we would speak of a game much superior, but in its present state it is still an interesting launch although with much way to improve.

Time Stoping Madness!

The game starts off on a bad foot: you're thrown into the middle of a plot with what appear to be some fairly forgettable characters and a relatively unremarkable time machine business. Your character becomes a superhero almost instantly, and the game throws more mechanics at you than you can shake stick at. The whole time travel thing makes no sense, really, and all of your powers just feel like normal things that Remedy put ?time? in front of, e.g. ?time dodge.? Right, Remedy. Time dodge. Awesome. It continues on like this through the entire first gameplay section: unremarkable and hard to follow. But you start to notice something about the time powers ? they feel great. Nothing is all that hard, but dodging up to a guard, knocking him back and then unloading lends a certain cinematic flair that touches off the excellent visual presentation with grace. Things are utterly ridiculous, sure, but they?re falling into place in a way that?s hard to figure out. And then, all of a sudden, we?re watching a TV show. After a short sequence where you, playing as the villain, select between two possible realities, you?re launched into a full-on TV show about the world you were just playing in. There?s overlap in the characters, but some new ones as well. It?s oddly entrancing, mostly because we already know some small parts about the world and now we?re seeing it from a different perspective. When you reenter the game immediately following a section you just watched in the show, the whole thing feels more alive, more fluid, and better for it.
