    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

The proportion of scientific intrigued me, because I like thought experiments on the subject of space-time.
    The gameplay is normal, not a plastic action, gun shots and felt like a real copy. Abilities are chosen for the right balance - God does not feel you (on the hard). If you go directly to the hard, the difficulties experienced only in the last act (the final battle replayed 13 times).

    Five Word Review: Good story, fun gameplay mechanics.
    Favorite Thing: The time altering gameplay mechanics spice up combat quite nicely.

    Favorite Thing: The time altering gameplay mechanics spice up combat quite nicely.
    Least Favorite Thing: Until the end I was going to say how I didn't like being pulled away from the game to watch the live action segments. After the end boss fight I changed my mind.

    Date Completed: 2017-07-07
    Playtime: ~ 9.5h
    Enjoyment: 7/10
    Recommendation: Yes. It has a cool story and fun gameplay.

    On a special note, the port is bit messy. It took a lot of tinkering to get rid of the camera judder. The motion blur was terrible but could be turned off with a launch command. The graphics as a whole were a bit blurry, there was no sharpness to them.

    Runs like complete dog slob on my 970 system.
    Never thought i would be this dissapointed with Remedy to be honest.
    Also, Microsoft charges

    Also, Microsoft charges more for the pc version?? Heck, they give it away for free on pc if you get the Xbox version. Jeez, they dont even try and hide it anymore.

    2 out of 10, because pretty graphics. Avoid.

    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
