    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
    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 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

I didnt have any issues with framerate either, i played on an i7 4790 4.0Ghz with a GTX 980 Graphics card.
    The game was thouroughly enjoyable with a good scifi story, the combat mechanics were really good as well except for maybe the cover system. Maybe these inital bad Reviews are based on bugs and glitches they have now fixed?

    I'm not going to describe the pros and cons, and would only say that "it" I liked the game, I was into it quite interesting and fun to play, despite performance. The main minus is the problem with optimizely and wild texture quality and have buried the game in negative reviews and the possible appearance of the second part, which according to the authors, should be.

    Не буду долго расписывать плюсы и минусы, а лишь скажу что "именно" игра мне понравилась, Мне было в нее вполне интересно и приятно играть, несмотря на производительность. Главный же минус так это проблема с оптимизицией и диким качеством текстур, что и похоронило игру в отрицательных отзывах и возможном появлении второй части, которая по замыслу авторов должна быть.

    Sadly a fairly mediocre experience. Visually the game is excellent. The lighting, character models, effects all amazing.

    The story and gameplay is where it falters. Actions is a mess of confusing steps. You are presented with a number of abilities that sometimes work, sometimes don't and the responsiveness feels a bit arbitrary. You time shift next to an enemy with the intent to let him have a shotgun blast in the face but the character ends up fiddling with the weapon and you realize the enemy has plenty of time to pump you full of led. Or the game encourages to collect some stuff around the level but only when it decides to until it randomly takes away your ability to jump and run making the collecting of something in sight impossible (restart of the level is required at that point). Shootouts at the end are a massive choir and a pain in the bum. Enemies spawn out of thin air without point or reason, just to prolong the encounter. Killing the same faceless guys over and over and over again. I guess that is the pointlessness of the situation. At some point you start thinking at the sheer number of people you slaughter just because they've hurt your feelings or something.

    The story is also sadly something that has wild ups and downs. It looks like from the beginning was never intended for them to use the faces of famous actors. They feel out of place. This is reinforced further when you encounters the two main characters from the 2014 E3 demo which models are still used as support cast now, and have superior facial expressions and emotional range, than the fairly stiff actors faces. But the biggest issues is that you never really care about them. They are nothing more than talking heads that propel the plot further. There is a mysterious force that transforms one of your best friends in to a homicide maniac, people shift allegiance after the words please and you are occasionally playing as the bad guy making decisions with ultimately fall flat as they are based on experiences that this character should have (while playing with the main protagonist). Worst bit the game doesn't bother explaining anything.

    The big finale ends with a whimper, setting up a cataclysm that is never presented, explained or detailed in any form. It's just so horrible that would make people go bananas and you gotta trust them on that.

    I guess, my expectations were way too high.

    A quick performance note: Game runs fine on a mid range hardware from 2017. Just make sure you tame your expectations and always install on an ssd, there is a lot of content streaming and it does require something faster than an ordinary spin drive.

    The only good thing about this game is the actors, but not the graphics, not the music, etc. Did not like
