    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

(다만 컨트롤러 플레이시 마우스 커서가 자꾸 보이는 건 좀 annoying glitch로 느껴졌지만) 평점이 이렇게 낮을만한 게임이 절대 아닌데, 낮다는 건 그만큼 리뷰 사이트에 대한 신뢰가 크지 않다는 개인적 방증인지도. Deus Ex Mankind Divided가 83점인데, Quantum Break가 62점이라는 게 말이 되는가...? 도무지 납득이 되지 않는다. Expand

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.

    Pros:
    − somewhat enjoyable plot
    − overall nice graphics (but it still looks blurry as hell unless you are able to play in 4K or 4K DSR...
    Pros:
    − somewhat enjoyable plot
    − overall nice graphics (but it still looks blurry as hell unless you are able to play in 4K or 4K DSR... probably with 5-15 FPS)
    − Aidan Gillen (Petyr Baelish from Game of Thrones) as one of the main characters (for me personally he saved this thing from being a total trainwreck)

    Cons:
    − runs like **** even at 1080p (4790K @ 4.8 GHz, GTX 980 SLI -- which is actually not working) and there's no exclusive fullscreen mode
    − totally unplayable on my monitor's native resolution (3440x1440)
    − it should be called "Quantum Sponge" because you need to shoot at everyone SO MUCH that it feels beyond unrealistic
    − the game was completed in less than 8 hours
    − ridiculous price (70 EUR)

    If it weren't for movie(s), I'd give it 3/10. The actual game feels like "god damn I need it to end immediately so I can watch next episode". Waste of money.

    P.S.
    English is not my native language, so please excuse me if this review hurts your eyes .__.
