    If they dial back the gorgonzola, the product placement and adjust that cover mechanic, this could have been a perfect game...But, for now, you've got the best-looking game on Xbox One, jam-packed full of familiar faces and top-notch acting, complemented by strong gameplay mechanics and a popcorn-crunching TV series.

    Quantum Break pushes the third-person genre through a star-studded cast and time-bending gameplay, although it lacks the replay value that many may have hoped for.

    Worth the long wait, Remedy has delivered one of the most beautiful games on Xbox with tight gameplay and deep storytelling that will fool you over and over again.

    Quantum Break is an artistically distinct shooter, with a compelling and malleable plot and excellent performances from its main players in both their digital and live-action forms. While I wish more thought had gone into maintaining the thrill of discovering its time-twisting powers from start to finish, it ultimately didn’t prevent me from thoroughly enjoying Quantum Break’s 10-hour campaign, two times over.

    Quantum Break emphasizes its narrative, which is sometimes detrimental to its cause. However, despite that fault, what's presented here is a very intricate, interesting and visually stunning game; not to mention one that is very fun to play when it lets the player use its protagonist's time-bending super powers.
  6. Quantum Break has its own beauty with its TV Show. If we are talking about storytelling, Remedy nails it. Apart from that, Quantum Break is a technical disaster with bad gameplay mechanics and old fashion visuals.

    There are a lot of sound ideas in the middle of Quantum Break and, hey, if you're a sucker for goofy time travel hijinks this game has that going for it, too. But those ideas are the only things holding this project together. The moment you look past that heady connective tissue, every single one of Quantum Break's individual elements fall flat.

At first it might not seem as 'different' of a gaming experience as Max Payne or Alan Wake, but it is easily one of the most ambitious videogames made in scope. I haven't completed my first playthrough yet and I am already excited to see how my next playthrough will play out when I make different choices throughout the game. The time powers really cater to a fast-paced style of play which fits the time-travelling theme of the game. The live action sequences seem like more of a treat than something you have to go through, especially when something you do in the game affects how the live action sequence will play out. The acting gives me an action-filled Bourne Trilogy kind of vibe which is really great. The time effects and physics are some of the coolest things I have seen in all of videogames in terms of graphics, even with Xbox One resolution/framerates. I could go into greater detail on this but I would much rather have you experience it yourself. Expand

Both is combined in QB in a great way. Playing and following the story gave me a good time. It you are looking for a big open-world with millions of things to search for - this is not your game. But if you like story and a good shooter with nice special abilities- manupulating time - give this game a try. Expand
