Quantum Break is Remedy's most fascinating work to date

Quantum Break is at once simpler and more confounding than any Remedy game that preceded it. It's simultaneously a throwaway action shooter, a well-meaning but ill-judged experiment in cross-media, and one of the most visually arresting games ever made.

Indeed, it's an underrated gem.
Playing this game and reading every title nuance of detail makes this the story even better. This is a title that truly makes makes video game story feel alive rather than
One of the downside are the lack of consequences on the TV show. And also the combat was stellar but they didn't have enough skirmishes in the campaign to fully experiment with the time powers.

Totally agree,

The control can sometimes be a bit clunky but overall this game is really good.

Lol, how stupid are you? Even if Sony buys Remedy you won't get Quantum Break on PS4 because MS owns the IP.

"Quantum Break is Remedy's most fascinating work to date"

it's probably their most worked on game yet. technically and budget wise.
Alan wake was also a looker too. with well animated environments.
for as much as you can say positive for one game over the other, the other game is not much that far apart.
Alan Wake and QB each have good qualities.

How do you know its the same guy?

XtaZ20d ago

Vasto,

Yeah, it's a better game that the reviews give it credit for. I played through twice to get both sides of the story, and it was a lot of fun for me both times.

Yeah, I couldn't believe how much the reviewers were killing this game. It was a genuinely good time.

NarutoFox21d ago

Umm actually I think Alan Wake is. Can't wait to play Alan Wake 2 in the future.

babadivad20d ago

Only thing holding this game back was the traditional and admittedly dated "Classic Remedy" control scheme. The character just moves so unnaturally. He moves like a PS2 era Max Payne.

Also, this game requires you to read A LOT(which I don't mind actually) to really understand the nuance of what's going on in the store. The issue is the email streams you read are always in reverse order meaning you have to scroll all the was to the bottom before you start reading. The quasi-required reading is also never narrated either. Again, for me this isn't a problem but I can see how this is can be a HUGE turn off for a lot of people.

My brother loves games like this but I know for a fact he wouldn't be interested in all that reading.

Still one of my favorite games of the entire generation. My jaw dropped at the twist 3/4 through the game. One of the few games that had a twist i genuinely didn't see coming. Was pretty heartbreaking. I NEED to see a sequel.

This is the 1st game i been playing since i got my xboxone, very underrated game.

Juusterey21d ago

Is this the game that was advertised as being half tv show?
Then people got mad when it was half tv show?

Ciporta198021d ago

This guy never played Alan wake.

343_Guilty_Spark21d ago

I thought it was better than Alan Wake

NarutoFox21d ago (Edited 21d ago )

Quantum break better than Alan Wake. Denial is definitely kicking in 😂. I remember when Xbox fans said Alan Wake was Remedy best game on social media and one of Xbox best exclusive. Funny how that all changed.

chiefJohn11720d ago (Edited 20d ago )

Alan Wake always been overrated to me

NarutoFox21d ago (Edited 21d ago )

Angry Joe's review on Quantum break was spot on and I totally agreed with him.

343_Guilty_Spark20d ago

Your father would beat you if you didn't agree

Lon3wolf20d ago

Great and loads disagree with him and you, AW was great QB was a better game in lots of ways , only one poster in denial here.

NarutoFox20d ago

I just thought Alan Wake was a lot better especially in story.

So did I. Alan Wake was great but it felt like a rip off of "The Dark Half" by Stephen King. Quantum Break felt like it told a unique story.
