    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

    Quantum Break is a fantastic story that plays out like a movie, with excellent game play and exceptional acting. The separations of gameplayQuantum Break is a fantastic story that plays out like a movie, with excellent game play and exceptional acting. The separations of gameplay with the motion picture type segments made for an enjoyable experience that made this game both unique and compelling.

    The graphics are superb. The capturing of the phenomenon of time fractures/stutters was done very well. The movement and interactions, as well as character models came of as realistic and immersive.

    The gameplay was smooth. I had no game breaking bugs, and only once had one issue, where I had to find a coward bad guy hiding, which was keeping me from progressing. Aside from that one moment, the entire game was smooth and essentially flawless. The controls were easy to learn. I had no trouble using the skills of Jack, and found the difficulty level progressed very nicely with the advancing skills.

    The story of Quantum Break is a captivating and well written adventure. I found myself compelled to not only finish the game, but to try different paths, to see the variable of outcomes that were included. The included collectibles in the game are worth finding, and add a lot of background to the story, which gave amazing depth. This video game did an exceptional accomplishment of written story, cinematic presentation, and video game experience combined.

    This is a game I recommend everyone to take the time to experience, and I hope that I can come across many more games like this in the future. A top notch experience that makes video gaming more entertaining on a whole new level.

    Да, плохая оптимизация, но это не повод засирать саму игру. Ебланы на древних ведрах накидали этой игре 0,1,2 из-за 10-15 фпс. Но, я напишу иДа, плохая оптимизация, но это не повод засирать саму игру. Ебланы на древних ведрах накидали этой игре 0,1,2 из-за 10-15 фпс. Но, я напишу и оценю именно саму игру сюжет, геймплей, физику, и графон. Сюжет крайне прост, но тем не менее он является некой новинкой на рынке и это безусловно плюс. Графон на хорошем уровне но мне не понятна чрезмерная мыльность картинки. Физика, детализация окружения, взаимодействие с окружающим миром - все это заставляет тебя играть в эту игру. Каждая баночка, бумажечка или коробка разлетается от твоих рывков, прыжков или выстрелов. Квантум брейк - это нечто новое чего не было до этого в игровой индустрии до этого, поэтому 9 Expand

    Summary:
    Not a bad game, the graphics were good, the gameplay was nice, but the story (for me) felt unfinished and uninteresting.

    Unplayable because of horrible stutter unless VSYNC is turned off.. Runs OK on ultra with FX 6350 and RX 470 with VSYNC off only and bearable,Unplayable because of horrible stutter unless VSYNC is turned off.. Runs OK on ultra with FX 6350 and RX 470 with VSYNC off only and bearable, slight tearing (mostly hovers just under 60FPS with drops to 35).

    Very commercial product, little artistic value compared to Max Payne and Alan Wake. Feels empty, e.g., there's no equivalent to Lords and Ladies; only a few, boring guns; awkward movement of character / covertaking; graphical and movement glitches
