    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 had been looking forward to play this game and I must say that it was an excellent experience. The story is very interesting, the live show adds a layer of entertainment and the game itself has good game play.

    There are lots of good things such as:
    - Live show
    - Junction choices
    - Actors
    - Plot
    - Background based on quantum physics.
    - Difficulty level

    Only negative thing:
    - Choices do not affect the game enough, so replay-ability is very limited.

    I would give a 9/10. Thanks Remedy!

    Five Word Review: Good story, fun gameplay mechanics.
    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.

    I regret buying the game. They clearly put much work and resources into making this, however they delivered poorly. The story is over the topI regret buying the game. They clearly put much work and resources into making this, however they delivered poorly. The story is over the top and the gameplay rather unsatisfying. There is a lot of nonsense and the playing is bland and unrewarding with clunky controls. Performance is also rather bad as others pointed out. Expand

    Do you want a game that is more broken on PC than Watch Dogs and shorter than The Order: 1886? Then, this is the game for you! A veryDo you want a game that is more broken on PC than Watch Dogs and shorter than The Order: 1886? Then, this is the game for you! A very ambitious title with interesting tech, but you play so little. Most of the time you are watching cutscenes or episodes. Even when you are playing, a lot of it is just walking and pressing X to open doors. The actual fights are interesting, but they are so few and far apart that you never get engaged. After finishing the game, I still didn't get the plot. If you want to understand it, you better stop and read all the emails on random screens in the game (as if this game wasn't making you sit and passively look at stuff enough already). In the final boss fight, no matter how many times you lost, you had to watch the same unskippable cutscene again and again and again and again. I was about to throw the controller at the screen at that point from frustration after hearing the same unskippable dialogue for the 10th time. This game doesn't know if it wants to be a movie, an actual game or a novel (all the emails you have to read). It ends up being a short, scrambled mess that could have been much more. Also, the PC port was inexcusably poor. Unless you have a 980ti (or something like that) and an SSD, you can forget smooth fps and expect endless stuttering and even freezing. I wish they'd never released it on PC. F*** this game. Expand

    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
