    It's not without its issues, but these are the kinds of experiences that really stick in the mind, and I'd rather that that yet another stock-standard action game that neatly fits within structures that we've already seen dozens of times before.

    I really want to enjoy The Quiet Man. But with seriously flawed design decisions, either in terms of screenplay or mechanically as well as dramatically, it becomes tedious too soon. And that is saying something for a game that last only three to four hours.

    Trying something new doesn’t mean you’re necessarily doing something good. Behold The Quiet Man, who dares concern the topic of mutism. But despite its neo-noir atmosphere, The Quiet Man fails to draw attention.

    The Quiet Man is one of the worst games I have ever played, but forcing me to play twice to experience the audio left an even worse impression. While withholding all dialogue until the second playthrough is an interesting concept in theory, it added little to The Quiet Man's already terrible story, making the second run even more of a chore than the first.

    An inexplicable and decidedly wrong project.

    A terrible idea poorly realised, with a mixture of pretentious, gimmicky storytelling and banal combat that is almost awe-inspiring in the full extent of its incompetence.

    We give The Quiet Man a point because it exists, and some people worked on it, but it is easily one of the biggest trainwrecks in the history of video games. Gameplay is awful, narrative is awful... nothing can be saved, and no one would ever have the patience to play it once and then download the New Game Plus DLC that includes sounds to understand something. It's just too painful.

    It’s actually a pretty crazy idea how the devs did this game. Combining both cinematic live drama with in game elements. The fighting systemIt’s actually a pretty crazy idea how the devs did this game. Combining both cinematic live drama with in game elements. The fighting system is derived from what I see as Jason Bourne influence. Overall it’s a 3 hour movie/game. With its $15. Price tag, I’d say it’s Well worth a play through. Expand

I was expecting a cinematic game as Late Shift was, but this is pure garbage. The filming part is ridiculous and without any sense, kind of oedipien weird story all packed with poor fighting gameplay. I can't believe this is an actual game available on the store, looks like an early beta coming from a third part developer on Steam. No dialogues, no music, poor sound effects, the audio part is even worst than the game itself. Shame on Square Enix for the most abhorrent game that ever crawl out of the Sony marketplace. Expand

Hay bugs, incoherencias en la trama, clichés de los latinos, el protagonista parece un maniquí con un repertorio limitado de acciones. Sin embargo, la equivocación más grande del juego es que no hay sonido para tratar de hacerlo inmersivo. Una copia fallida de Hellblade, en este juego la protagonista sufre una enfermedad mental, pero en The quiet man tenemos que meternos en la perspectiva de un sordo que solo él entiende lo que ocurre. El videojuego no es recomendable.

    In English
    The video game is one of the worst in 2018 and perhaps one of the worst in history. There are bugs, inconsistencies in the plot, clichés of Latinos, the protagonist looks like a mannequin with a limited repertoire of actions. However, the biggest mistake of the game is that there is no sound to try to make it immersive. A failed copy of Hellblade, in this game the protagonist suffers a mental illness, but in The quiet man we have to put ourselves in the perspective of a deaf man that only he understands what happens. The video game is not recommended.
