Nobody does experiments like Remedy and Quantum Break was their biggest risk yet and there just isn't as enough game here to call it a masterpiece and the fact that it is a game is disappointing. Still, every moment is awesome.
Not too much live-action but not enough game 3/5.
Quantum Break first Review by Jim Sterling#1
Quantum Break is not the most revolutionary of games, and its box of time toys cover what is, at heart, a fairly standardized shooter. However, it carries itself with style and speed to create something genuinely fascinating to play, flavored by a story that, while failing to pay off in the final stretch, is more detailed and engrossing than most in its league.
The Xbox One may have failed to live up to its dreams of being a cross-media entertainment portal, but we got Quantum Break out of it, and that’s just fine by me.
