    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.

I didn't read enough into how the "live" part was being handled and thought it would be ridiculous; gotta say, I loved it. The animation is so life like I was 3 minutes into the first live episode before I realized it was actual actors......very well done. I also liked the insight the live sections provided into the story...and I am normally the "skip this" button masher.

    As to the game. The combat overall was enjoyable; as a standalone shooter this would have been a major fail as the variety of weapons and their differentiation was very limited; but add in the time powers and the combat was quite fluid and satisfying....if a little on the easy side on Normal....which personally, I ain't complaining about :)

    Pic quality hits a few rough parts but by and large is excellent.

    While I can't remember the last game I played that was under 20 hours, I was less disappointed than I thought I would be, because.....

    The true strength of this game is the storytelling....dear lord I found this amazing. All the characters were extremely well fleshed out, to the point I can't think of a game that comes close. Particular kudos to whomever wrote for Beth.....the diary entries were the best writing I have ever seen in a video game!!

The game takes a chance in its storytelling with theQuantum Break is a unique experience and one that I intend to experience again. The game takes a chance in its storytelling with the television show. While not everything in the game may land, in this day and age, seeing a AAA game take a gamble is refreshing in and of itself. Any gamer who appreciates a time travel story would do themselves a disservice in missing this game.
