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


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.

Great Story

Played on Hard, with near maxed out settings(except Upscaling) on a 1070 in 1080p. I experienced few far between graphical hitches and occasional FPS drops but I felt it stayed mostly 60(or close to 60) FPS. I went into QB fully prepaired to enrich myself in scouring notes and emails as well as other details for hidden lore surrounding the world and it's story between the various high-octane action sequences. Though I admit the wall of text emails are daunting and could tire oneself easily if you're not really engaged in the various characters and their motivations the gameplay aspect doesn't provide, most felt gratifying and gave the world more weight. With that in mind. I really enjoyed my time, engrossing myself within the written lore placed throughout the 5 acts made the combat more welcome, I'd say. They balance each other out pretty well. QB has a well thought out, very complex and intricate, time travel story that mostly makes sense(to me at least). Sound design is impressive. The game engine and art direction produced a remarkable looking game, grounding QB's architecture in a way only Remedy can. TV episodes were okay, some cringe-worthy moments but far less than I was led to believe. As with Alan Wake, I don't see a continued future for QB sadly (for obvious reasons) which is a shame as I'd gladly come back to this world for a sequel.


I love Remedy, I think Same Lake has a brilliant mind, and they just can't make bad games. So Quantum Break is awesome too. Not better than Max Payne or Alan Wake, and it's a little bit different. But it has a great story, like them. Ok, there was some games with very cool time manipulation stuff, but it's just... greater, cooler, more awesome! :) And I think the film series parts were ok too. At first, I thought it will be boring, but NO! It was fun to watch. :) So I think everyone should have this kind of game experience. 10 out of 10. :)

One of the best games I played this year.

The story is great. No spoiler if I tell you that it is a story containing Guns, Time Travel, Friendship and many more. Graphics are awesome. Even the faces have so many details and you can have a closer look at most objects. And when you reach the first cutscene you might know, how they got all the details in the animation. They used real actors! And when you finish an act, you will see a 20-25 minute movie which is not animated. Staring actors from Game of Thrones, Lord of the Rings and some more. Totally recommend to every fan of action, third person, time manipulation and Fans of Alan Wake and Max Payne.
