Description

In the aftermath of a split second of destruction that fractures time itself, two people find they have changed and gained extraordinary abilities. One of them travels through time and becomes hell-bent on controlling this power. The other uses these new abilities to attempt to defeat him – and fix time before it tears itself irreparably apart. Both face overwhelming odds and make dramatic choices that will determine the shape of the future. Quantum Break is a unique experience; one part hard-hitting video game, one part thrilling live action show, featuring a stellar cast, including Shawn Ashmore as the hero Jack Joyce, Aidan Gillen as his nemesis Paul Serene and Dominic Monaghan as Jack’s genius brother William. Quantum Break is full of the vivid storytelling, rich characters and dramatic twists Remedy Entertainment are renowned for. Your choices in-game will affect the outcome of this fast-paced fusion between game and show giving the player a completely unique entertainment experience.

Fun but short

I really like the overall story and graphics, but after you beat the game there's nothing else to do. The game does get repetitive, and quite boring after a while. If you want a fun story game to play you should get this. But if you want a non-repetitive game with lots of content I do not recommend buying this.

Unique and fun game!

The story and combat are both great! I really enjoyed the mix of game and film and thought they complimented each other well. This is such a unique game that you shouldn't pass up if you enjoy fun and interesting stories with great characters and fun, unique combat.

Disappointing.

I've wanted this game since I read about it before the release of the X 1. The thing about downloading a game is you can't return it. This is not an action/adventure. It's a puzzle game. Everything is a puzzle. Need to open a gate? Figure it out. Maybe for some that's a good thing. But I didn't pay for that. I hate puzzles. The real tv shows in the game bored me to tears. I was able to follow the story for the first act. After that, I couldn't understand anything! I felt like I needed a crash course in quantum physics! Since they stopped printing instructions it hasn't been the same. 2 stars for great graphics.

Review on Quantum Break

I loved the game! The concept of using, and containing, a black hole was a great idea, for it works! "Controlling" time in order to stop everything-before everything is just a fantastic and brilliant sketch.

A lot more fun than I even expected

Very unique and engaging. The story was extraordinarily interesting and smart. Just could have done without the use of my Lord's name as a swear word every 5 minutes. Not very respectful or appropriate. There was also a tasteless joke about "religious" people involving some misguided and facile idea of sexual repression. It seemed out of character for a developer that is otherwise an insightful storyteller. Other than those things, it is a fantastic, well-made, beautiful and very fun game!

Fantastic !

Blending these two mediums may not be entirely innovative, but none have pulled it off so brilliantly. Decisions have very clear and apparrent changes in both the game and show. Theres a plethora of reasons to re(play/watch) Quantum Break. So get to it, times a wasteing.

Phenomenal!!!

Hands down best game I've played in ages. Awesome story with multiple choices, great amount of action, and the live action movie bits change depending on your decisions. I want more!! Get this game because it's worth every penny.

outstanding production value...just could be longer

firstly let me clear up something...the gripes some people have regarding the framerate of the game are ridiculous....do they not realise that any frame judders happen because of time splinters not the game? the game runs super smooth. Some of the best animation and lip syncing ever in a game and if not for the plastic hair...i would say the best character graphics period. the game oozes production quality...I loved the real tv idea.....great acting too. the voice acting is top notch throughout and the cut scenes are as seemless as witcher 3. The gameplay is very solid....basic with a twist but certainly enough to be fun and refreshing. Whilst not a system seller its a top tier game and a worthy addition thats been crafted with care and attention...and gob smacking facial detail. If only it was longer
