Interesting Sci-Fi game

I thought this game was extraordinary. The complexity, detail and amount of effort put into the design of this game amazes me. I really enjoyed the additional content which you can watch throughout the progression of the game. My only dislike is that there wasn't the ability to perform melee attacks on enemy soldiers. that was really crucial because it made for an awkward moment when I was too close to an opponent. other than that, I really enjoyed the storyline.

A truly immersive blast.

This is game is a graphilcal joy to behold. I am playing through it a second time. I played it before uncharted 4 and now I have played both to completion I can honestly say this game the most and unique fun I have had in a videogame this year. I wasn't sure how to the live action would fit in, or if it would take away from the game but they fit seemlessly together. Everything from the Story to some of the best eye candy you have ever seen, to the voice acting and music and gameplay mechanics. It for me just all fit together and really transports you to this world Remedy has created.

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 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

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.

Great game with a few trip ups

The gameplay and story are on point, and really felt this game is unique. It does fall short on a few elements i.e. (frustrating "boss" battles, a "fluid" cover system that is a little spazzed at times, the dash mechanic is only mildly clunky, but it does make for a few annoying parts). Otherwise, the acting and dialogue is all excellent! A cool, fitting soundtrack that meshes well with the pacing of the gameplay. Replayability value wise, its not the most amazing game im spending eons playing, but it certainly, like a great film, is worth revisiting again. Very fun game and IP that id like to see go further! 4 outta 5 :)

Good Single Playthrough

I loved this game. The story is amazing and the movie cut-scenes were well done. However once you beat the game twice for the 2 endings and collected everything there's not much alse to do. And after all this time no dlc or new content has been announced to my knowledge, so it seems whats there now is it.

Quantum Break is epic!

Quantum Break is flat out awesome! The unique format amazed me. Each chapter lead me to wanting more of the episodes, and vice versa. I loved the small easter eggs we could plant in the episodes. And Time Knife was hilarious! The mixture between game and show was truly epic. I have beaten it several times now, and I cant get enough. The gun play was some of the most fluid I have ever experienced. The graphics are amazing, as well as the sound effects. The voice acting, and acting are great. And I certainly hope we get a QB 2! But it has to be just like this! I highly recommend Quantum Break

a cinematic thriller that shouldn't be missed

from the makers of max Payne 1 and 2 and Alan wake comes I believe remedy greatest game yet quantum break. I deeply heavy story driven action game. best friends turned better enemies. with the campaign spending 10 hours with plenty of collectibles and Easter eggs. and 2 different endings and branching paths you will want to see and collect everything in this game. with the live action cutscenes are some of the be with great acting and supporting characters I was on the edge of my seat with the nearly two and a half hours of cutscenes you're getting a game and a movie. and the and this is as perfect to a story driven action game as you can get. every Xbox one her should have this game in there collection some way or another. the definition of a must buy.

Incredible immersive storytelling

The world is vast with amazing complex characters and a story that makes you thirst for more. The gameplay mechanics are fun and easy to use. The abilities are incredibly satisfying. The way the show and game mesh is perfectly balanced and makes you want more after each episode and level. This game is the reason I bought an Xbox.
