  1. Quantum Theory may not be as detailed, vibrant, engaging and breathtaking as one would have hoped but it does offer a certain enjoyment despite its visible flaws.

    In the end, though, Quantum Theory bears the terrible imprimatur of the also-ran. While it's a noble effort on Tecmo-Koei's part (this is, after all, their first foray into this genre), it just doesn't have that "oomph" that a killer action game hits you in the sensory cortex with.

    There were some promising things in Quantum Theory: its story, its narrative and even the relationship between characters. But the game has constant ups and downs, and the global result is not worthy.

    Quantum Theory can hardly be congratulated for infringing on other games, as it is hardly even capable of doing that properly. Albeit all attempts to be Gears of War, Quantum Theory is no more fun than burning $60 dollars and to be honest, burning money isn't exactly a lucrative or entertaining hobby.

    A truly rubbish shooter that lies deep in Gears' shadow, pillaging it for set pieces, designs and mechanics with zero subtlety. [Issue#64, p.89]

    Awful - a crushing disappointment. [Oct 2010, p.102]

    Quantum Theory is a disgrace to the video game industry.

It has a particular style that can be charming, not to mention the controls are by no means so disastrous as everyone says. the game defends well, has a charisma all its own and can be safely considered at a good price.

It is true that is very similar to Gears of War, but that makes it good. The mechanics of throwing/launching your fighting mate (filena) are quite good. -It has a very decent cover system
    The storyline is really interesting, -The play mechanics (design) of the levels are quite interesting, -Play mechanics that encourage melee attacks mixed with fighting far enemies
    very varied and fun weapons, specially the gun-axe (not the real name, I can't remember), bad for shooting but brutal melee attack, I keep it always on my character, plus the electrocuting one, those make my permanent 3 weapons (besides the main one, that you can't throw) -Very varied levels, that change in real time, removing your cover in some difficult moments (fun). and also the game is very challenging, in the best way. -For me this game has A LOT of replay value. I just regret not having purchased it as it was launched so I could tasted the online mode, today January 2012, it is almost imposible to find online players, I just would love to try the co-op multiplayer mode (I guess it must be similar to the GOW horde mode). I even would put a higher score than 8, but being out there games like Gears of War 3, Uncharted 3, Battlefield 3 I just can't. But for sure I think this game deserves better score than what is reflected here.

    Try it if you are going to approach it openly and I bet you will enjoy it.

    Well it's 2013 and i just finished playing this game, i got it for 20 bucks and here at least, it's a little rare.
    This is the japanese counter-part of Gears of War, it's impossible to avoid comparison.
    The game is a 3rd person cover shooter with sluggish response and some times confusing levels, the difficulty is very challenging in Normal, and almost impossible and annoying to beat on Hard. The graphics are the standard of this generation with some buggy stuff.
    The story is intriguing and the dialogue is fun and cheesy, it's one if it's stronger aspects, i really enjoyed the atmosphere and detail in the main characters. The audio is very good to add life to the in-game world but nothing impressive. And finally the most important thing; the gameplay, it takes a little time to get used to the unpolished cover system and generic shooting with a not that limited weapon variety only 4 are really useful there is a 3 combo system that tries to bound you with the Ilena (the second main character) but it feels weak and pointless in harder difficulties, also there is a throw move that sometimes come in handy but these was too little effort to define itself as a new and promising IP; you can't even turn off the auto-assist!! This was a game i tried to love but it feels empty and incomplete. I am not saying that is a bad game, but simply it's a game that you shouldn't pay more than 20 bucks. Gears of War fans and 3rd person cover shooter players should look at this as a rental or a cheap buy, tough achievements are really hard. As of this date the servers still available but there is no one playing; at least on the 360 version. Finally, i would say that this is a ugly but fun underrated game that had a lot of potential.
