'Quantum Conundrum' review | BG Media Review

Though it has a lot of similarities, “Quantum Conundrum” is not “Portal.” This is great, as players can tackle puzzles in new and exciting ways, but it’s also somewhat tragic as “Quantum Conundrum” never lives up to the caliber of its cousins over at Aperture Science.

At its roots, “Quantum Conundrum” is about poor parenting skills and poor sibling relationships. The game begins when a young boy’s mother drops him off to stay with his eccentric uncle, Professor Fitz Quadwrangle. Rather than receiving a warm welcome, the boy enters a foreboding manor with no visible sign of his uncle. Apparently the mother forgot to phone her brother Fitz, so not only is the boy’s visit unexpected, but Quadwrangle says he’s lost somewhere in the manor and cannot remember how he got there. This would normally be a ridiculous statement, but the manor is huge and Professor Quadwrangle conducts all sorts of experiments there. Of course it’s too late for the boy to leave since his mother has already left, so he tells the boy to venture into the manor’s various wings and restart several generators to help bring the malfunctioning manor back online. (PC, PS3, Quantum Conundrum, Xbox 360) 3.5/5
