    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 graphics look good even in 2021. All problems were fixed with patches. But the most important thing is the story, which is great!

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?

    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
