    Quantum Break is a great game from start to finish, and playing it with all the benefits of being on PC just make it that much better. Given that this game is coming out at a lower price point on PC as well, there's just not excuse not to get it.

    Yet another well done Remedy shooter, but I rather play the game than watch looong videos, even though they are pretty well done. [Oct 2016]

    Quantum Break is an action experience with great presentation, but on PC it doesn't look as spectacular as on Xbox One.

    Quantum Break, in enlarging their length and complexity, turns them into a crutch that’s forced to support a game that can’t consistently match their appeal.

    Quantum Break unfortunately remained somewhere halfway. The series is hollow and gameplay parts are rare. However, the game mechanics are so amusing that it can entertain you for a whole afternoon. [Issue#263]

    This is the most frustrated I’ve been with a shoddy port in years. There have been other high-profile trainwrecks in the recent past, like Batman: Arkham Knight and Assassin’s Creed: Unity. But I didn’t LIKE those games, aside from their obvious PC woes...I love Quantum Break.

    The PC version of Quantum Break suffers of several critical issues. The UWP needs a big number of fixes in order to compete with Steam, Gog and other gaming platforms. The lack of fluidity and big resolution problems are enough to prefer the Xbox One version of Quantum Break.

    I was skeptical, because Microsoft flopped hard with PC launch.

    But: once I bought it and finished, I'd realised that the game is 10/10

    But: once I bought it and finished, I'd realised that the game is 10/10 material.

    Best gunplay in videogames since Max Payne 2 and F.E.A.R.

    Awesome story with really good-written and portrayed characters

    Stunning visuals.

    Even the godawful Win Store and XBox app can't spoil this.

    Bravo, Remedy

    One of the greatest games ever. I think it has surpassed Remedy's previous title, Alan Wake.
    Of course, you have to ignore all the buds, the glitches and the extreme hardware requirements.

    Even in the start of the game, i had already forgot all the aforementioned problems and literaly took part in the greatest movie-game. Quantum Break sets a new category and blurs the line between games and movies.
    An astonishing accomplishment that cannot be missed by any gamer who love single player and story driven games.

Sure it's repetitive, just like most other games (all FPS). I just now played this game (October 2016) so maybe they've already patched all the issues other reviews listed. But I got 50-60FPS on a FX8350 with a 3GB 1060. I encountered no bugs or graphical issues. It ran really smooth.

    My main issue with the game is that depending on when you die, you have to replay a large part of the level rather then taking off from right where you died. Overall really liked the story. The live episode things where kinda annoying to sit through for 20 mins at a time. But I give Remedy a A for effort. And thank them for making the PC version. Can't wait for #2.

    It’s ok, but mostly missable if I’m being honest. The story has its interesting points and the acting is generally good. The graphics areIt’s ok, but mostly missable if I’m being honest. The story has its interesting points and the acting is generally good. The graphics are nice, but the game runs poorly even on high end hardware. The gameplay is pretty meh, run and gun with powers that are not as interesting as the onscreen effects want them to be.

    It’s certainly not as interesting as Alan Wake was.

    This game is unplayable for me. The only way it is even remotely playable is if you go down to 1080p, although still really bad performance. IThis game is unplayable for me. The only way it is even remotely playable is if you go down to 1080p, although still really bad performance. I have a recent i7, a Geforce 1080, 144Hz IPS 2560x1440 with G-SYNC, OS on an m.2 , game on a SATA SSD. No response from developer and no fix in sight. Just vague promises that never panned out.

    Frustraiting as hell. played it to I think the end boss and was so often before to close and delete it. The endboss was now a good reasonFrustraiting as hell. played it to I think the end boss and was so often before to close and delete it. The endboss was now a good reason beacuse its not just depend on skill, it depends also on luck defeat him. I needed some time to realize where he is standing. This fancy glitch effect was just overused so much, that you cant play for a long time without headache. The gameplay is so boring, full of BS ideas overused in any other bad game in this genre and the battlesystem is completle annoying and bad. I just liked the idea to bring game and liveaction scenes together but the story is also complete dumb and manytimes just wtf. It could be a good game but its not. Expand
