"Quantum Theory" is the latest Japanese production studio Tecmo responsible for the production of such hit series as "Dead or Alive" and "Ninja Gaiden".
I played the demo and I was not impressed. I'm not the guy who disses a game for imitating or taking foundations if you will from other games. (Like Casltevania, I absolutely can't wait for that game) Quantum is clearly inspired from Gears of War, but I don't see they bring anything new at all. You had Darksiders a while ago who did the same, but in my opinion the game was very well put together and all the elements works very good. Quantum does just seem as a cheap rip off and judging from the demo it won't appeal any GoW fan. For new fans, I can't say for sure, but the mechanics was not that impressive, graphics was edgy, so I can't say this will do very good in my opinion.
Dante's Inferno all over again.
Dante's Inferno was really good, even when it lives under the shadow of God of War. QT is rubbish in every sense.
Graphics = average at best Weapons = run of the mill Gameplay = ditto (melee combat was absolute crap) I love me some Gears and was actually hoping this game would turn out solid. The sad truth is that Gears & Epic have nothing to fear from this game. QT doesn't just lack polish. As a whole it's a piss poor game. A sad display considering it was delayed and all. Move along folks - nothing to see here.
this game is simply horrible well based from the demo I played.
All I have to say is if PS3 only fans REALLY wanted a piece of Gears of War, they got it, but to say that is just insulting Gears of War because of how horrible this game is. I couldn't even finish the demo and had that shit deleted within minutes. Everything about QT is just bad, horrible graphics, unresponsive cover system, clunky controls, you name it. Honestly URT3 is a better representation of Gears than this trash.
Yeah, I was horrified by this game. I was really looking forward to it. Looked fun as hell in the videos, but then I played it....o....m....g....so bad. I wonder who's giving you all of those disagrees? probably the same people that are going to give me some. lol
why would PS3 owners should want Quantum Theory when they have a game that is 10 time better called Uncharted 2, a game that its even better than Gears 2 in terms of gameplay,i will not even talk about story,i like gears,but after playing Uncharted 2,Gears2 felt too slow and the multiplayer really bad compared to Uncharted 2
I only disagreed with you because your last sentence. I think Bulletstorm will be the taste of Gears that PS3 owners will be able to appreciate. And the Unreal tech for a shooter will counter the bashing from naysayers. UT3 came out 3 years ago, a year after the first Gears and Gears was still miles ahead of it in almost every perspective.
Uncharted2 as a shooter only, could not stand against Gears of war. uncharted 2 is an amazing game but when it comes to multiplayer gears is on another level, don't let the similar cover system fool you because aside from that the gameplay is very different.
Though I agree that QT doesn't seem to be very good (from what I can tell from the demo) it's funny to hear from people that this is meant to be like Gears and doesn't do anything different. Please, name the last fps that did something radically different? Some people may say Halo because of it's regenerating health. Maybe, but come on now, that was in 2002! ...and to be frank, I played Killswitch before I played Gears and that was a very good third person shooter with an excellent cover mechanic. Just because Gears had the same idea didn't stop it from being a good game. Quantum Theory is bad simply because....it's bad.
if this game did anything right, it was to show us that replicating a great game is a futile task. Its like they offering Epic a gift for their contribution to the gaming world."look at what we have done, its not close, but we honour you by trying".
He is looking good, but nothing new...
Demo was absolutely awful.
I couldn't agree more, it was a bad version of Gears Of War.
I don't know what happened between the initial in-game footage and that mess that they shat out in the form of a demo. This is a rental or bargin-bin game, for sure.
Yeah, it's pretty rough. But I'll play any sort of Japanese trash. I have almost all of the achievements for Bulletwitch, if that gives you any indication :)
They should write on the back of the retail box "failed copy of Gears".
the game was total crap, very unplayable and tottaly lack luster in everything. Bland graphics and very low res character models ugly environments. and clunky controls. it plays like crap and the voice acting is just rubbish. I really can not believe i had expectations of this game being Good. This game isnt even worth the demo they made. they should seriously just send this back. everything about this game just sucks. i can not believed i was interested in this game.
I was curious about this title. After playing the demo I no longer give a s**t for it. I rather be playing Vanquish instead. Way better game with similar mechanics.
Yeah, I enjoyed playing Vanquish much more than QT, both games reminded me of Gears.
If I hear one more Gears of War comparison, I'm gonna shoot right to the moon! Quantum Theory is...not even a video game. Gears of War is a fantastic franchise.
In your opinion it's a fantastic franchise, doesn't make it a fact.
Mushroomwig... I think he knows it's an opinion. The comparison is just getting old. Edit: Oh...and you remind me of my ex. She was bitter also. Edit 2: Also...it IS a fantastic franchise. Fact.
i hate QT more, but to me Gears isn't a great franchise. But even i can see that in other peoples eyes that it is, so therefor i respect that and agree that it is a fantastic franchise. Contradicting myself yes, but 10s of millions of people love it, does it change the FACT that it is a great franchise? yes and no, it all comes down to your own opinion, but to argue that Gears Of War isnt a great franchise is silly, it is, but you (like me) may not enjoy it.
Look a new companion for Dark Void!!
I like the demo, I mean it's nothing new, but it was enjoyable. I read a couple of comments saying the gameplay is suck, which I find interesting, because it plays exactly like Gears of war. Anyway to each his own, I'm going to give a try.
That's it! I'm coming home, Elizabeth! *grasps chest*
gears PWNDS this game all day..
the graphics were bland and it seems ive seen the art style of them before,totally reminded me of gears back when i playd the first one,least there werent jaggies on everything,thats a plus haha. i thought it was worth a buy...when its half price lol. a total imposter lol
Biggest shit game this gen!
It looked good in trailers but sucks ass on consoles. I wonder how devs feel to delay games just for them to suck...
I disagreed. Vanquish is 100 times better...not just 10. I gave you bubbles though! ^_^
If you're looking for a GeOW killer - STOP. Just stop. My impressions on the demo was actually quite good. For starters the graphics aren't bad at all. By the way, is it just me, or I haven't noticed any aliasing in this game at all? It seems very clean (maybe they've utilized MLAA). The controls are just like GeOW except that the X and O positions are reversed (like Vanquish). No, this doesn't have to be the "Dante's Inferno" for TPS. Just take this game as like other FPS are to Quake, Half-Life, Halo etc. Verdict: Clean, solid, no bugs noticed no noticable aliasing. Goes to show that Japanese devs are willing to go beyond their "comfort" zone, and for that, I appreciate it greatly. No, I don't see this as a way to appeal to Western audience a-la "FFXIII". The game stands on it's own, period. -End statement
this isnt about gears of war , for starters quite a few ps3 owners wouldnt know how Gears of Wars play or feels . Some of us just think the game is mediocre and not worth it .
Even if we were going by your point. Fact is, people are shooting this game down for the most senseless of reasons. I've played both GeOW 1 & 2 in "Insane" Difficulty and the gameplay is EXACTLY the same. The only real difference is the graphical artstyle, elements and storytelling (and the lack of co-op multi-player). If that would put some gamers off, then it's understandable. Graphics are not the best but the fact that it does look very clean (very good AA) makes the environment easy on the eyes. In general, had this been any other game, I would immediately forget it and not consider purchasing it. But seeing the Japanese devs bringing out a solid game outside their "normal" game development does make me want so support them, so this would be one of the VERY few exceptions where I would buy the game IRREGARDLESS of the reviews or user feedback. That way, maybe more Japanese devs would start being competitive in the gaming market again. -End statement
The game could have done very well but it is just horrible. I couldn't play 3 minutes of the demo as I was put off by the first two minutes. Not even a rental, with so many games coming out I dont have time to give lame games a try.
I with you bro, I thought the demo was fine. I'm getting it, so I could care less what anybody else think about. The same people bashing the game are same people that praise the same games over and over again, like Halo and COD. Also they probably didn't even play the demo, so you have take some of these comments with a grain of salt or just ignore them all together. This is N4G after all.
This game is just a waste of time in my opinion and it's been put together very poorly. but to each is own. I think Dark Sector was better than this crap! and that game was average by some.
wow....wrong on so many levels. It is so unresponsive, Not fun, etc
Baka you can play gears on PC, you dont need a 360.
there isn't anything necessarily bad or wrong with the game. It's just that when you look at all the other action games out there right now (especially with Vanquish coming up) This game is going to have a REALLY hard time finding a audience. This isn't a crappy game by any means. But it will have a hard time finding it's place in the sea of action games currently out there. And for those of you that say it sucks, how many of you played Gears of War and said that sucked? Because this game is almost a mirror image of it. Which even the developers openly admitted at one point.
when something is anounced exclusive then goes multi mid development , you know something not gonna end up right
What about Final Fantasy XIII? Or Devil May Cry 4? Or... Maybe you have a point.
but it wasn't a bad game. the same thing can be said about DMC4 it isnt a bad game. in fact it's better than the crap that was 2.
I said this in another thread but I really wanted to like this game and give it a chance despite what the media have been saying about it lately. Having played the demo I'll not be touching the full version of this game. It's not the characters or the story because I actually still think those are quite interesting but the gameplay itself was just so poor and the functionality of the weapons was even worse. The Vanquish demo was so so much better and looks like it will be a better game as the mechanics of it are so much better.
will certainly be WGOTY (Worst Game of the Year) :)
did anyone notice, the resolution looks higher than most games this gen and I dd't see any jaggies.I play PC games and know that console games do not look as clean as QT looks. the demo was not good BTW.
It will probably goes 1080p like NG Sigma!It will be impressive taking in consideration all Sub-HD that have been release and the ones that are still coming!
So what it still looks like a blast to play through & has a pretty desent story plot over all who cares if it's barrowing bits & parts from other games big deal so don't a lot of the other games do the same thing you guys set your expectations too high & nit pick too much.
well i played the demo and it was just not fun to play . looks like ill be pre- ordering vanquish when i pick up my move.
maybe Tecmo should bring out games that fans want...lets say DOA or NG....
Yea we are due for another Ninja Gaiden game. I never enjoy DOA series because it took me months to master one character.
If its free i will get it!
played the demo again, not really bad.
i was looking forward to this game. but i played the demo and like 10 minutes in i deleted it. something about it was just jorrible. the control.the enemies. the aiming. the weapons. the cheesy dialogue. i took it out of my gamefly que as soon as it was deleted
If its that bad, then I'm not wasting my time with the demo. I was more impressed with Vanquish.
you won't get the game the first time you play. Just forget about comparisons for few seconds, and play the game for what it is. I suggest increasing the camera and aim sensitivity to the max if you want it to be more effective. the game is no "Gears". sure you take cover, pop and shoot. but a lot of TPS do that now adays, to name a few, Uncharted and mass effect. The movements seems realistic as far as moving, Evading and running, they got that much right, and I like the sidekick girl.
A horrible game, the demo sucked, hope it get's very bad reviews.
Still looking forward to it after playing the demo, seems solid enough. I just wished they stuck with some of the character designs from the concept art, could of gave the game some much needed aesthetic flavor/identity.
the demo of that game was underwhelming to say the least...and to think I kinda expected that game to be moderately good after seeing that E3 trailer...bah. But the fact that to some of you Gears of war is better than Quantum Theory (which may be true, or not), doesn't mean that Gears of war itself is an outstanding achievement. I'm sorry, but that game still has clunky controls, a story that could be written on a subway ticket, fake a$$ cheap blood effects barely worthy of CGIs seen in a Z-grade movie made 15 years ago, and more than anything, one of the most retarded art direction (if any) ever seen in a videogame. Seriously, a 4-year old mental chimpanzee designed that game, or what? If there are PS3 owners who don't have a PC to run Gears, or just prefer to play it anyway on their PS3, the best they can do is buy Unreal 3 (the game is dirt-cheap now), and install those mods: -Marcus P. & Locusts: http://ps3mods.blogspot.com... -GearsCam: http://forums.epicgames.com... -Supergory mode: http://www.ut3mod.com/2008/... -Real weapons (these are from my personal collection, enjoy!): http://www.mediafire.com/?e... (and this mod has the chainsaw in it:) http://www.mediafire.com/?u... -And just add any maps that look like they're from gears, et voilà, you have Geow on your PS3, really. (PM me if you want more mods for PS3 UT3, by the way)
played the demo as well for ps3. my god the game is weak. everything from the level design to the character design, to blah graphics, sound and story. the controls felt extremely clunky. Controlling the girl and whipping her at enemies was cumbersome and irritating, because you had to be right at her side to do it. Been playing Dead to rights: retribution, decided to rent it, and was surprised at how fun the game was. Even though the story was weak, I thought the level design was solid, gun sounds and general voice acting was fine.
