Whether it’s TV, movies, or video games, the concept of time travel is hard to do successfully. But thanks to a strong cast, well written dialogue and a mostly solid story with decent replay value, Quantum Break manages to pull it off. Developers Remedy Entertainment even manage to merge two different mediums effectively, by including live action TV right into the game. The quality of the presentation shines – outside of the actual gameplay, that is. The mechanics are serviceable, providing players with multiple time shifting tools but no real challenge or reason to utilize them all.

Remedy has created something new and special with their bold storytelling and great action sequences. Quantum Break isn't just the best game I've played on Xbox One - It's one of the greatest games I've played in years.

It's a disappointing realization, but not a damning one. Far from it, actually. Remedy's keen understanding of how to make an action title shines through, and it's every bit a game that has been lovingly crafted for years. Quantum Break won't at all times feel like a game, as the player spends a fair chunk of time relegated to spectator. But, no matter which side Quantum Break is showing, it's always going to be a spectacular one.

Quantum Break is another example of Remedy Entertainment sticking to what they know, and doing it better than anyone else. An engrossing adventure with a captivating story. experimentation with new mediums for telling stories in games and refined third-person gameplay to match. Quantum Break isn’t optional, it’s essential.

Sadly, Quantum Break's gameplay is essentially divided equally between combat and hapless environment traversal. Given that the entire campaign can be completed in less than 10 hours--live-action episodes included--the distribution of activities feels that much more disappointing. Even if you go back and change your decisions--such as preventing a character from dying--your path essentially remains the same, albeit with a few minor elements remixed to hint at your agency over its plot.

On one hand, Quantum Break fits perfectly into Remedy's timeline, representing something grander and more cinematic than the fake TV shows and other ambitious little elements that have worked their way into the studio's past work. But it's probably telling that I was way more excited to watch Quantum Break's fake in-game TV show on various TVs found around the edges of the game than the one that was actually produced and shoved into the middle of the action.

Could we change the past if we had time machines? Should you give Quantum Break a go? Choose wisely, because in real life, time’s arrow points one-way only.

What may seem like an ambitious project is in the fact the combination of a standard third-person shooter and the kind of cheap sci-fi drama you might find in the darkest corners of Sky TV. Visually tepid and filled with abortive gunfights and platforming, Quantum Break also struggles to contain its plot, while at the same time underselling its characters. Remedy's previous games have been characterised by a distinctive tone and knowing humour. By comparison Quantum Break is a glossy, charmless, wholly moderate outing.
Quantum Break isn’t a perfect game; it’s a bold experiment in how two mediums can tell a larger story, and at times it pays off. It would be foolish for every game to attempt to emulate this form of storytelling, but Quantum Break as a gaming oddity deserves attention. I wish the events of the show were more significant to the main story, but Quantum Break more than makes up for that with some of the best storytelling and gameplay Remedy has ever produced.

Remedy has, without a doubt, crafted a very creative title with Quantum Break. It’s not going to be the killer exclusive game that so many were looking for with the Xbox One, but it’s definitely been worth the wait. Story gamers will especially delight in replaying the game multiple times to see the various episodes and experience the different paths the game itself can take. For anyone with an Xbox One, Quantum Break is a must-own.

With astounding production values, powerful story-telling, and rewarding combat, Quantum Break is a stellar game. But due to an underdeveloped upgrade system and poorly thought out content delivery that demands heavy bandwidth, it isn't exactly a game we can recommend to everyone wholeheartedly. Make no mistake though, if you have the means to play it as it was meant to be, it's worth experiencing.
What Culutre - 60%
There are good characters, bad characters, setups and resolutions. Rather like Heavy Rain, Remedy designed these split paths to weave around the narrative’s core strand, and in the pursuit of a fixed resolution, things can only flex so much. The Witcher 2 (where taking a particular path meant you didn’t see entire cities CD Projekt RED had designed) this ain’t.
Next, the things Quantum Break absolutely nails. The TV show is ace, it’s just a shame it houses the best characters that barely appear in the game. Also, there’s a reason the TV show has been the focus so far…

Although I really had fun with it, but I lack in comparison to other current titles of variety. The possibilities of time manipulation are underused, puzzles there are almost no, and if you want the whole story, some really long texts must endure blank (Beth's notebook), but sometimes contain important information.
