Über das Spiel

Der Bruchteil einer zerstörerischen Sekunde reichte aus, um die Zeit selbst zu zersplittern und das Leben zweier Menschen vollständig auf den Kopf zu stellen. Sie hatten sich verändert und außergewöhnliche Fähigkeiten gewonnen. Während der eine von ihnen durch die Zeit reist und alles daran setzt, diese Kraft unter seine Kontrolle zu bringen, versucht der andere, ihn mithilfe seiner neuen Fähigkeiten aufzuhalten – und die Zeit wieder zu dem zu machen, was sie einmal war, bevor sie sich selbst unwiederbringlich in Stücke reißt.

Beide stehen unvorstellbaren Widrigkeiten gegenüber und müssen schwerwiegende Entscheidungen treffen, die Auswirkung auf die Grundfesten der Zukunft haben. Quantum Break ist einzigartig: teils knallhartes Videospiel, teils spannende Live-Action-Serie mit Starbesetzung, darunter Shawn Ashmore in der Rolle des Titelhelden Jack Joyce, Aidan Gillen als sein Widersacher Paul Serene und Dominic Monaghan als Jacks genialer Bruder William. Mit Quantum Break zeigt Remedy Entertainment sich von seiner besten Seite: Die Geschichte sprüht vor Lebendigkeit, die Charaktere sind facettenreich und dramatische Wendungen halten die Spieler in Atem. Alle im Spiel getroffenen Entscheidungen wirken sich auf den Ausgang dieser temporeichen Kombination von Videospiel und Fernsehserie aus und dem Spieler bietet sich eine absolut einzigartige Entertainmenterfahrung.

Features:
  • Eine detaillierte und rasante Geschichte, aus der Feder von Remedy Entertainment
  • Eine hochqualitative Fernsehserie mit echten Schauspielern, die von den Entscheidungen im Spiel direkt beeinflusst wird
  • Ein hochkarätiges Schauspielerensemble • Eine Geschichte, die auf viele Arten erzählt wird
  • Actionreiches Gameplay auf mehreren Zeitebenen
  • Bewege dich durch epische Szenen der Zerstörung, während die Zeit Aussetzern und Manipulationen unterliegt

Halb Spiel, halb Film. Vom Gameplay her ist Quantum Break etwas wie Max Payne und von der Erzählung her erinnert es mich etwas an Alan Wake. Gut, wenn man sich darauf einlassen kann, da nach jeden Gameplay-Abschnitt es einen Filmabschnitt gibt. Die Qualität der Filmabschnitte finde ich wirklich hochwertig gemacht, also es wirkt wirklich nie billig, finde ich zumindest. Über die Story kann man sich streiten. Ich fand sie sehr interessant, aber wenn man Logikfehler finden will, dann findet man bestimmt auch welche. Das eigentliche Gameplay ist ganz cool mit den verschiedenen Zeitlupenfunktionen. Die KI ist zweckmäßig, aber das reicht auch. Was mich am meisten stört, ist das man nur so in Lagerräumen, Büros, Forschungslabor usw. kämpft. Da hätte ich mir von den Schauplätzen her etwas mehr Abwechslung gewünscht. Optisch hätte das Quantum Break auf jeden Fall hinbekommen. Trotzdem bekommt man ein gutes Spiel, wenn man bereit ist sich immer wieder ca. 10 bis 15 min Filmabschnitte zwischendrin anzuschauen. 8/10

Maybe not Alan Wake.

Its to short (even if you read every message what is a great challenge because many stuff get repeated again & again, even if you play on hard & watch the long good cut scenes).

But it has a good atmosphere, level designs are good, nice ideas, nice abilities, good story.

Movement feel sometimes a bit clumsy.

Even on hard never beeing unfair (good balanced)

4 choice points where you can change your ending. So replaying it at least twice highly recommend

It feel like a movie game.

Need many rescources because of 4 long real actor movie cutscenes (a bit to long a bit to much repeating)

Its not perfect. Alan Wake was better 9/10 but its for me a 8/10

I want Alan Wake 2 & Quantum Break 2 (nice Cliffhanger)

Cant wait to play Control <3

Mir hat das Spiel gefallen.

Die spannende Story, die Mischung aus Live Action Videos und spielbaren Passagen, sowie das Gefühl, die eigenen Entscheidungen haben wirklich Einfluss auf das Geschehen, fand ich sehr unterhaltend. Die Charaktere sind relativ glaubhaft und haben mich mitfiebern lassen. Nur die Handlung fand ich ab einem gewissen Punkt etwas vorhersehbar (Verräterus ist ein Verräter!).

Gameplay-technisch gesehen fand ich das rumspielen mit der Zeit auch recht unterhaltsam, auch wenn es nicht darüber hinwegtäuschen kann, dass man eigentlich durch Level-Schläuche rennt und nur an bestimmten punkten die Zeit manipulieren kann, von den Kämpfen mal abgesehen. Die gelegentlichen Rätsel gehören auch zum Standard, waren aber ok.

Apropos Kämpfe: Die waren Ok. Ist halt ein ganz normaler Deckungsshooter mit ein paar Waffentypen. Neue Gegnertypen und Zeitfähigkeiten im späteren Spielverlauf bringen Würze ins Spiel, die Gegner verhalten sich jedoch relativ dümmlich.

Von der technischen Seite her hatte ich keine Performance-Probleme. Das Spiel ist grafisch relativ gut aufgestellt, auch wenn das Level-of-Detail Probleme macht und Texturen dadurch manchmal verwaschen und unscharf wirken. Darüber kann man aber hinwegsehen, denn die Level sind sehr detailliert und die Zeitmanipulation und die dazugehörigen Fähigkeiten sind bombastisch inziniert.

Pro:
----------
- erfischende Mischung aus Live Action Filmchen und Gameplay-Passagen
- spannende Geschichte mit diversen Wendungen
- relativ glaubhafte Charaktere
- mehrere Schwierigkeitsgrade
- coole Fähigkeiten, die bombastisch inszeniert werden
- abwechslungsreiche Passagen aus kämpfen, erkunden und Rätsel lösen
- detaillierte Level
- beeindruckende Partikeleffekte
- zufriedenstellendes Ende
- Wiederspielwert durch andere Entscheidungen

Kontra:
----------
- Die Live Action Filmchen bewegen sich teilweise auf B-Movie Niveau
- ab einem gewissen Punkt vorhersehbare Handlung
- Level-Schläuche
- der Einsatz der Fähigkeiten wird stellenweise vorgegeben
- für geübte Spieler zu leicht
- Fähigkeiten teilweise zu mächtig
- dümmliche Gegner
- Hardware hungrig
- LOD macht Probleme
- teils hölzerne Charaktere

Remedy hat mich noch nie enttäuscht weder bei Alan Wake noch bei Quantum Break.
Sie wissen was sie können und haben sich auch sehr verbessert.
Hier und da gab es auch kleine Anspielungen an Alan Wake.

Jeder der Alan Wake mochte wird Quantum Break lieben und je weniger man vorher über das Spiel weiß umso besser ist es für die Erfahrung.

Vertraut mir, das Spiel ist genial!

Einzigartig in der Präsentation und rundum ein gelungenes Spiel. Gute Story, Charaktere und Gameplay. Nicht zu kompliziertes Upgradesystem und eine sehr schöne Aufmachung der gesamten UI. Ich finds auch toll wie viel Arbeit teilweise in die Texturen an Tafeln oder Whiteboards ingame und die ganzen Notzbücher usw. gesteckt wurde. Nur die Platzierung der Checkpoints nervt manchmal und die Ladezeiten (auch beim Skippen von Cutscenes) dauern einfach zu lange.

Ich empfehle das Spiel sehr gerne weiter.
Man muss aber auch schon Lust darauf haben sich zwischenzeitlich für 30 Minuten eine Cutscene anzusehen.^^

Dieses einzigartige Spiel hätte wirklich einen 2. Teil verdient. Der Mix aus gutem Game, guter Grafik, einer gut gemachter Serie (welche auch wirklich gut an das Spiel angepasst ist, durch die super Kostüme, die guten Schauspieler und der generell guten machart) und einer TOP Story, ist bisher einzigartig.

Man stelle sich vor, die Zeit würde einfach aufhören zu existieren. Nicht nur die Zeiger der Uhr, sondern auch alles Leben, wie wir es kennen, würde erstarren.

Story:
In der Rolle des unbedarften Jack Joyce erleben wir, wie ein Experiment schief läuft und daraufhin das Gefüge der Zeit zersplittert - das ominöse Ende der Zeit steht bevor, was einem Weltuntergang gleichkommt. Zusammen mit seinem Bruder Will versucht Jack, das temporale Gefüge zu reparieren. Doch Bösewicht Paul, Vorsitzender eines millionenschweren Konzerns und ebenso wie Jack mit übernatürlichen Fähigkeiten der Zeitmanipulation gesegnet, hat andere Pläne.

TV-Flair:
Der Übergang ist abrupt: Nach vier der fünf Akte von Quantum Break wird ein jeweils 25 Minuten langes Video mit echten Schauspielern abgespielt. Diese Live-Action-Einschübe sind professionell im Stil einer modernen Fernsehserie produziert. Ihr Fokus liegt auf den Fieslingen der Geschichte, die in Oberbösewicht Pauls Konzern Monarch Solutions arbeiten.
Im Laufe der gut zwei Stunden langen Erzählung wechselt aber so manche Figur naturgemäß die Seiten. Es kommt zu nervenaufreibenden Verfolgungsjagden mit dem Auto, ausufernden Schießereien und rabiaten Messerduellen auf Leben und Tod. Eben alles, was man von einer Thriller-Serie erwartet! Allerdings schwanken die schauspielerischen Leistungen stark und auch die Dialoge sind nicht alle ein Ausbund der schriftstellerischen Genialität. Einige Figuren bleiben über die gesamte Laufzeit blass und lassen uns so kaum mitfiebern.
Wichtig: Die Serienfolgen werden nicht beim PC-Download mitgeliefert, Quantum Break streamt die Videos aus dem Netz.
Obacht, PC-Spieler: Am Computer werden die Videos mit bis zu einer Auflösung bis zu 4k gestreamt, allerdings lassen sie sich unverständlicherweise nicht herunterladen. Ein Download-Paradox, für das ich absolut kein Verständnis habe und das aus Quantum Break am PC mehr oder weniger ein Always-Online-Spiel macht.

Suboptimales Spiel mit der Zeit:
Charaktere reisen per Zeitmaschine in die Vergangenheit und Zukunft oder stoßen auf frühere Versionen ihrer selbst. Das ist unterhaltsam und spannend, wenn man ein paar ebenfalls typische Logiklücken ignoriert.
Darüber hinaus besitzt Quantum Break einen gewissen Wiederspielwert, denn abhängig von vier Entscheidungsmomenten im Spiel verändert sich die Handlung minimal. Allerdings gibt es nur eine Endsequenz; eure Wahl bestimmt hauptsächlich das Schicksal von Nebencharakteren. Stirbt eine der wenig fesselnd geschriebenen Figuren, übernimmt seine Rolle einfach einer seiner oder ihrer Kollegen. Weil einem diese Charaktere weder im Spiel noch während der zwischen den Akten abgespielten Live-Actionsequenzen besonders ans Herz wachsen, reagiert man als Spieler nur mit einem Achselzucken auf derartige Entwicklungen. Letzten Endes habt ihr in Quantum Break kaum mehr Einfluss auf die Ereignisse als in einem beliebigen Telltale-Episoden-Adventure - minus dem Sympathie-Bonus durch interessant gezeichnete Figuren. Zudem fehlt das letzte bisschen Emotion und Witz.

Rätsel:
Wenn die Waffen schweigen, verliert Quantum Break an Reiz. Remedy hat sich zwar eine Handvoll Rätsel überlegt, allerdings ist für die nicht allzu viel Gehirnschmalz vonnöten. Per Tastendruck spult ihr an vorgegebenen Stellen die Zeit zurück und setzt so etwa eine Brücke über einen Abgrund instand oder lasst ein Auto erneut durch ein Tor fahren, wodurch ihr Zugang zum nächsten Areal erhaltet. Die größte Schwierigkeit in solchen Situationen besteht darin, das entsprechende Objekt zu finden.

Die Kämpfe:
Schussgefechte noch und nöcher! Held Jack schleppt bis zu drei Waffen mit sich herum und erledigt damit reihenweise Handlanger von Bösewicht Paul. Remedy schafft es dabei, die Gefechte immer weiter eskalieren zu lassen und den Spieler mit immer neuen Elementen bei der Stange zu halten.
Die Bleispritzen, von denen ihr maximal drei gleichzeitig herumtragt, sind dabei noch das Langweiligste in Jacks Arsenal. Weitaus interessanter sind die insgesamt sechs Zeitmanipulationstalente, auf die ihr nach und nach Zugriff erhaltet und die jeweils mit einer Abklingzeit versehen sind.
Eine Spur mehr Abwechslung hätte ich mir derweil in Sachen Feindaufgebot gewünscht. Meist kämpft ihr in Quantum Break gegen optisch leicht unterschiedliche Varianten derselben Standard-Typen, die sich insgesamt nicht allzu intelligent im Kampf verhalten. Ab und zu gibt es zwar Mini-Bosse mit dicker Rüstung und Typen in Zeit-Schutzanzügen, die sich besonders schnell durch die Levels bewegen.

Steuerung:
Auch die Steuerung fühlt sich nicht griffig an und wirkt stellenweise sogar leicht schwammig – nicht nur in Gefechten beim Zielen, sondern auch in manchen Sprungpassagen lässt die Präzision zu wünschen übrig. Und auch mit Gamepad spielt es sich nicht besser.

Grafik:
Quantum Break läuft mittlerweile selbst auf der Ultra-Detailstufe mit flüssigen 60 Fps - bei ausgeschaltetem VSync sind sogar deutlich höhere Frameraten möglich, um etwa 144-Hertz-Monitore optimal zu nutzen. Die gute Performance erkauft sich Entwickler Remedy aber weiterhin mit grafischen Schwächen im Detail. So sind viele Texturen grob aufgelöst und in der Entfernung ploppen Objekte unschön auf. Besonders auffallend ist das bei Bäumen und Sträuchern.
Gelungener sind da schon die aufwendigen Zerstörungssequenzen, bei denen die Beschädigung der Zeitlinie für spektakuläre Schäden an der Umwelt sorgt. So rast einmal ein Zug durch ein Gebäude, anderswo nimmt ein in der Zeit gefangenes Frachtschiff eine halbe Brücke mit. Wenn sich bestimmte Ereignisse in einer endlosen Schleife wiederholen, Widersacher mitten im Gefecht einfrieren oder Protagonist Jack in luftiger Höhe über bewegungslos in der Luft schwebende Trümmerstücke balanciert, protzt Quantum Break mit tollen Anblicken.
Einigermaßen sehenswert sind die Gesichter der wichtigsten Figuren, die dank Photogrammetrie-Verfahren ihren Schauspieler-Ebenbildern verblüffend ähnlich sehen. Zumindest in den Zwischensequenzen. Im Spiel selbst ist die Ähnlichkeit zwar immer noch groß, aber die Detailtiefe leidet unter der geringen Auflösung und die Gesichtsanimationen sind wenig ausgefeilt.
Letztendlich ist die Optik weit von dem Detailgrad entfernt, was man von einem echten Grafikkracher erwarten, wie es Quantum Break einer sein soll.

Synchronisierung/Sound:
Wenig Grund zur Klage bieten der Audio-Bereich und die Lokalisierung: Abseits kleinerer Rechtschreibfehler in den Dokumenten überzeugen neben der guten Abmischung und den wuchtigen Surround-Effekten vor allem die hervorragenden Sprecher – und das nicht nur im englischen Original.
Die deutschen Synchronstimmen hätten bei einigen Nebenfiguren zwar passender gewählt werden können, doch die aus Film und Serie bekannten Gesichter verleihen den Spielcharakteren angenehm Kontur und tragen maßgeblich zur Atmosphäre bei.

Fazit:
Die Zeitreise-Geschichte ist spannend und wartet mit einigen coolen Kniffen auf. Dazu inszeniert Remedy kompetent gemachte Schusswechsel, die dank der sehenswerten Zeitmanipulations-Fähigkeiten des Protagonisten nicht so schnell langweilig werden. Die Live-Action-Schnipsel zwischen den Missionen empfand ich persönlich öfter eher störend, schließlich will ich ja spielen und nicht zugucken (hier hätte man eher kürzere Videos öfter einbauen können). Aber gut, manche Menschen sind auch jedes Mal begeistert, wenn Hideo Kojima mal wieder eine 30 Minuten lange, nicht abbrechbare Zwischensequenz in Metal Gear Solid rausfurzt. Der Widerspruch zwischen Gameplay und Serie ist beileibe nicht der entscheidende Mangel von Quantum Break. Nein, dem Spiel fehlt einfach das letzte Quäntchen Genialität, die eine große Besonderheit, wegen der es einem im Gedächtnis haften bleibt. Es fehlt die Seele. Quantum Break ist leicht bekömmliches Action-Fast-Food, so schnell vergessen wie es konsumiert ist. Daher auch nur knapp ein Daumen hoch (Sorry).

I'm still wondering why this masterpiece only got an unfair score of 69 on Metacritic. Apparently this is one of the clearest sci-fi stories that perfectly demonstrates the time story. The entire pace and plots meet my taste. The ideas are groundbreaking. And the outstanding graphics are impressive as well. Further more, it is obvious that Remedy spared no effort to complete the whole crazy adventure by providing numerous letters, journals, all those hidden documents and the unforgettable videos, without which I could never figure out what happened. There are also a lot of hidden plots and clues that indicate the possibility of future story. Honestly I admire Remedy's respectable ambition so it is a pity to see the unfair remarks on it that killed the potential development of the story untold. The unfinished story owes us the end of Jack and Beth.I know it is not practical but I still wish Microsoft could think it over to pick up cooperation with Remedy.

An awesome game overall, and I definitely recommend you give it a try.

There is a live-action TV show interspersed with the gameplay that features the same actors that are captured for the main characters in the game. Your choices in the game affect what happens in each part of the TV show. It's pretty cool and I've never seen another game done quite like this.

There are some things I didn't like. For example, you play as Jack (the protagonist) for 95% of the game, but briefly switch and play as Paul (the antagonist) for a few minutes at the end of each part. And it is as Paul that you make the biggest decisions that affect the story. I would have much rather seen Jack making important decisions here. Also, all roads lead to the same ending, with very little variety at the end. So all those big important choices you make are mostly cosmetic.

Despite these flaws, the game is still great fun and a memorable story. Everyone that likes narrative adventures should give it a play, especially if you like Sci-Fi.

Edge of tomorrow, Looper, Predestination, Source Code...these are the best movie fictions that associate with this game. Time travel for me is one of the cherry about sci fi aspects. It's so misterious and still not unexplained phenomena. This game has trully one of the better stories in video games. It keeps you going and going into a rabbit hole and where it ends only gods knows. I might say this is the strongest part of this game. Fun gameplay mechanics let you be like into matrix universe. While the game is not very long it has some replayability aspects. I got this on sale and no regrets. Highly recommended for sci fi fans.

So this is kind of a janky third person shooter, it doesn't feel particularly nice to play tbh. I got pretty damn hooked on the story though. Mindbendy scifi, that's just all the way up my alley. They've mixed in a decent amount of mid budget live action footage, sounds super weird but I found it works really well and I got a big kick out of all that stuff.

I'd definitely recommend this game, its just a pity the gameplay itself mechanically wasn't up to scratch, so much potential here its a bit sad it was never fully realized. I'd be down for a sequel for sure.
Come into this game expecting more of an interactive narrative experience rather than a bang shooty remedy action title and you'll have a totes spiffy time.

Awesome game from the developers of Max Payne. The game has live action video which is quite unusual and despite not being crazy about watching videos in a game, they pulled it off really well with good acting and what seemed like a surprisingly large budget. Great story, several choices along the way and fun combat and abilities. Overall a very well made and thought out game.

For the players who prefer more story than action, this is wonderful. Great for making your brain work a little harder at deciphering the who, what, where, and oh boy, WHEN. The cast of characters/actors is amazing, and it accomplishes what those movie/games in the Nineties aimed for but missed: a meshing of gameplay and live-action that is believable and engaging. There are some spots where the game forces you to make choices that one might otherwise not, but then if we didn't make those choices, the game wouldn't get past the first 15 minutes of story, so.

A huge advertisement for Microsoft products (Windows 10 was still [is still, IMO] in its infancy as a game-stable platform, and the Windows phone is still.. well...) and Nissan, but the product placement doesn't interfere with game enjoyment.

It's like a series of short TV episodes punctuated by interactive action sequences. Some of the things you find or do cause different scenes to play during the episode breaks.

As an action game it's pretty routine, but the novelty mix of media is interesting. There's room for improvement but it's definitely something I'd like to see further explored.

Full price might be a bit high, but it's on sale for $20 often enough and I had fun with it.

Good game, combat was simplistic, but fun, I haven't encounter any game-breaking bugs, the story is great.
If you don't enjoy the live-action part, you can always skip it. The game never forces you to do anything on the side, but you are free to explore. there is overwhelming amount of notes and emails you can go through and it gets tiring at the end of the game because of how long they are, but that's because I've read all of them. Story aside, this is a solid third-person shooter, your powers feel satisfying and it's fun killing enemies in some random-ass new ways. My only problem with the game was the checkpoint system which may feel broken on several occasions. All in all, I like the direction Remedy went after Alan Wake and totally recommend the game if you are wondering whether it's worth it.

Damn good game. Loved the story. Loved the atmosphere & acting. It actually made me play it twice back to back. Took my time reading through all the documents & watching every episodes twice since your choices change them quite a bit. Brand new respect for Remedy for their efforts. Highly recommended. Can't wait till they release Control on steam.

Was curious after I've finished Control to see previous game, and I was not disappointed. A little too short, and hard mode not that hard (except a few specific passages). If you liked Control, this sounds like a draft version of it. Story worth it, and expect 30 minutes videos after each of the chapter (if you don't have time, might wait for later before starting a chapter ;))

The checkpoint system in this game is just trash. Once you hit a checkpoint before entering an elevator, be prepared for a 10 minute gap between the next checkpoint. And once you defeat a mini-boss, don't worry, there's no checkpoint after that. Even better, there are 4 unskippable cutscenes that you must rewatch everytime it goes back to the checkpoint. I've hit different bugs that result in instant death on 8 retries. It's like they were writing their first video game.

Very entertaining story about what happens when someone create a time machine, use the wrong formula and break time, which causes you (the main character) to fix it before time ends. A really good story with choices at the end of each act that effect the story moving forward. Controls are simple enough and the difficulty on normal wasn't too bad, might suggest if you are good at shooters playing on hard for a challenge. Overall I had a lot of fun with this game and will go through it again to see the different story arc.

Quantum Break made by the great developer Remedy who made other great narrative titles like Alan Wake and Max Payne. With these other narrative games under their belt I expected good things from Quantum Break and was not disappointed. It was a Microsoft exclusive releasing on both Xbox One and Windows simultaneously, thus it was not a port to the PC, it was designed with the PC in mind and worked on my computer with very little problem.

Quantum Break is a narrative-driven game so if narratives aren’t what you’re looking for then you should probably look elsewhere. The game consists of two parts: the actual gameplay and then ‘TV episodes’ which are around 20 minutes long and take place at the end of each chapter. For the actual gameplay you are playing as Jack Joyce and fighting against the company Monarch, of which you see one view of the situation and what Monarch is doing. But during the TV episodes (which are live-action) you are watching behind the scenes at Monarch and seeing the people who work there and why they’re doing what they’re doing. It’s one of those moments where you kind of start to question if what you’re doing as Jack is the right thing, or perhaps Monarch is making the right choices for the world? There are also story junctions at the end of each chapter which can affect the TV episode narratives and also how the town views both Jack and Monarch.

Gameplay-wise it’s pretty down the middle, you have shooting and you have a couple different time powers. The time powers are quite interesting though the ‘skill tree’ it used could have been a little more in-depth with expanding/upgrading them. For the most part the upgrades just increase their time limit or the size of their effect. Through the game itself you will learn the skills and with picking up the chronon sources you will get the points you need for the upgrades to those skills. A note on the chronon sources, you have to use your Time Vision to spot them, if you just try to find them without the little map you will usually miss them. I missed most of them in the first chapter and half of the second before I realized how to find them properly. In the game there are many collectibles, but these are not useless time-wasters that have you searching all over, these are smartly placed within the game and add to the story, you will get even more out of the game and what’s going on with the characters if you take the time to find and read all of these items. It’s a 3rd person cover shooter, but also wants you to keep moving and using your time powers. If you try to only take the enemies on behind cover, you’re gonna miss the best parts of gameplay; moving so fast that time slows down so you can get behind enemies and melee them, or putting up a time shield to protect yourself while you shoot. Or time freezing the lesser enemies and pouring all your bullets into it to make one heck of a whammy.

In conclusion, this was a unique gameplay that I thoroughly enjoyed. It was a strong narrative, in the same vein as Alan Wake (in which you’ll also experience several AW Easter Eggs!), that is well worth playing. I would say you could even go back and play again, especially if you want to see where the other story junctions will take you!

There are some flaws though, in the controls sometimes, or lacks some graphics adjustements, but honnestly it's not even worth mentionning.
The integration of real-action cinema/tv series episodes was surprising to me at first. But they're really well made. Worth giving it a try!

Quantum Break is one of the largest games of all time... sort of.

Having both Alan Wake's under my belt, I decided the next game I should play was Quantum Break, Remedy's 2016 single-player title. Coming at the end of one of Microsoft's less successful decisions, the pivot from gaming content to multimedia mixtures, Quantum Break has the makings of a great game and a somewhat great television show shoved together into one package. Does it work? Well, let me explain.

At first, Quantum Break seems like a generic third person shooter - you run from point A to B, take out some enemies, and do it again. However, Remedy has been able to... ahem... remedy these concerns with fun and varying special moves for the player character. Having time-based superpowers, Shawn Ashmore's Jack Joyce can freeze enemies in time, dodge bullets at extremely quick speeds, and use many other abilities to level the playing ground.

To be honest, the combat isn't all that special. When reviewing the Alan Wake games, I discussed how those games used combat to provide a narrative flow between story segments. Here, it basically amounts to using the right time abilities at the right time. The weapons are massively underpowered, and unless you can accurately hit headshots using a few late-game items, you'll get bored of the same enemies appearing over and over. You even have an unlimited-ammo light attack for the entire duration of the game.

Without giving away spoilers, the final boss is atrocious. Taking place in an arena-like building, you mainly run around in circles, taking potshots at the enemies, all while avoiding the final boss's insta-kill move. It isn't fun. Like I said earlier, though, the time powers do add some variety to the battles. Some.

However, if you are playing this game, chances are you didn't buy it for the combat. Like Remedy's previous titles before it, Quantum Break shines in its strong and complex writing. Bringing together performances from an all-star cast, including former Animorph Shawn Ashmore, Aiden Gillen, Lance Reddick, and more, the game pulls off an impressive time-travel tale, with very few plot holes and confusing story threads.

Hidden throughout the game's many environments are emails, files, radio recordings, and a variety of other narrative tools that strengthen the story and characters around you. Collecting them all gives the player a great amount of understanding and knowledge about the events unfolding in front of them. This is where Remedy really does what they do best: [Insert bland praising statement here]. Seriously, if you play this game without trying to find all of the collectibles, why play it at all?

Unfortunately, this multimedia project is not without its flaws. In between major gameplay chapters are high-quality episodes of a television show produced by Microsoft to append to the story. Each episode is about half an hour in length, and they tell the tales of several supporting characters in the overarching plot. It's apparent that these episodes did not have a large budget - the few special effects that do appear are unfortunately very blatant, and other scenes seem to be very low-budget. Additionally, it can be jarring to go from the main story to that of an basically unrelated character in the grand scheme of things.

To be honest, I enjoyed the television episodes quite a bit. I felt the performances of all the actors were very strong, and I liked the direction the story took. However, on a second look at the episodes, I can see that this is probably not what most were expecting.

The game also features a few 'Junction Points', where you can make some major decisions on how the rest of the story plays out. While this is a unique concept (and by unique I mean not at all), it ultimately doesn't matter much in relation to the rest of the game, bar some episode differences and a slightly altered final level. However, regardless of what you choose, the story will end up hitting the same beats, and the game will finish all the same. Considering the game's story heavily discusses the idea of an unchangable destiny, I guess this happens on purpose (or maybe they were just lazy).

As I mentioned earlier, Quantum Break was part of Microsoft's multimedia initiative throughout the mid 2010's. Originally released on the Xbox One and Microsoft storefronts in April 2016, the PC version was a mess, but players could download all 178 gigabytes of 4k video and graphics for their systems if they so desired. Later that year a Steam port was released, but without the dowloadable videos. If you can't stream, you're out of luck.

While the PC version still has some issues, Quantum Break has fantastic visuals. It's clear that Remedy used every resource they had during production, and the end result is amazing. Even today, as more advanced graphics cards are being released, the game continues to get more visually beautiful. Minus the episodes, it took me about 8 hours to complete the game, and then a few more to get all of the collectibles and unlock every achievement.

Unfortunately, the rights for Quantum Break are stuck with Microsoft for the time being, so it seems that a sequel is unlikely. However, I highly recommend this game for fans of Remedy's past and solid single-player games.

Due to some bugs in the PC port and the (minor) issues with the television episodes overall, I give Quantum Break a 9/10.

The game is centered around time-travel, or more specifically, the consequences of it. In short, the ultimate goal is to prevent the End of Time itself. The principle villain of the game, Paul Serene—your former best friend and the first man to successfully travel through time—believes that such an event can’t be stopped, that no matter what decisions you make, the end result will not change. The player character, Jack Joyce, refuses to believe this to be the case, motivated in part by a desire to save his brother. To say much more about the story would be a disservice. It’s something that you really have to experience if the subject matter seems interesting to you at all. What I admire most about the story is that the writers managed to create something that felt Kojima-esque with nowhere near the amount of convoluted story arcs. And while the game does ask you to suspend your disbelief from time to time, it’s a perfectly tolerable ask. In fact, I’d argue it makes the game better simply because it allows the story to explore more interesting concepts.

The characters that drive the story are also solid. While they don’t really change or develop throughout the story for the most part, they are all more complex than they initially seem. The game certainly spends more time exploring the questions related to time-travel rather than diving into the personalities and backgrounds of the characters, but there’s a fair amount to discover about the people you encounter in the game. Unfortunately—as has been the case with many games these days—a lot of that information is limited to items you discover throughout the game world. You’ll find emails, documents, reports, etc. that provide additional information about the characters and the story. And while I’ll always prefer that that information be provided through the story itself, I have to applaud Quantum Break for the sheer amount of detail these items provide. Many of these documents are lengthy, and with a few exceptions, most of them are worth the read. Along these same lines, if you like easter eggs--and also happen to like Remedy's Alan Wake--they are plentiful in this game. A lot of the story and supplemental information is dark. It’s violent, and the threat of the End of Time is ever present. But the game manages to work in well-placed humor here and there. One of my particular favorites was the screenplay you come across from an employee of Monarch solutions.

The gameplay itself could be described as third person shooter or action/adventure. There’s a ton of shooting in this game. When you’re not shooting, you’re exploring the world, picking up documents and collectibles, and solving the occasional puzzle. As a shooter, it’s not bad. There is a decent variety of weapons to find and use throughout the world, and each of them has a different feel. Each of them have their pros and cons based on the situation or the enemies you’re facing as well, so I never felt like weapon choice wasn’t important. While it’s not the tightest or most fluid shooter I’ve played, it’s perfectly competent for what it is. What makes the game infinitely more interesting, however, is the time control abilities you have at your disposal. Both in and out of combat, you can use abilities that allow you to stop time, warp a short distance, slow time down, create a time shield, etc., etc. Each of these abilities is interesting, but more importantly, they’re all useful. Each ability has an individual cooldown, so you’re able to string together triggering these abilities in combat for some exciting moments. You often have to deal with waves of enemies, so creating a shield is always useful. You can warp out of the field of view of an enemy, and it will confuse them. You can slow down time in order to reposition to hit their weak spot. Finding clever ways to string together these abilities is crucial for success. Around the midway point in the game, you start to go up against enemies that also have these abilities. I felt like combat got incredibly dynamic and interesting when that was the case.

These abilities can often be used outside of combat as well, typically to solve some sort of puzzle. I use the term puzzle lightly because the solution is typically very obvious or extremely simple to implement. There are a couple of exceptions that I encountered, but it wasn’t due to clever puzzle design. Unfortunately, there are a few sections in the game where it becomes unclear exactly how the game wants you to proceed. Those rare moments aside though, otherwise boring puzzles or obstacles are at worst tolerable and often enjoyable simply because of how interesting the abilities are.

Choice also plays a meaningful role in the story. For the majority of the game, you’re controlling Jack. But in an interesting twist at the end of each act, you’re given control of the villain, Paul Serene. The game dubs these “junction points.” In these sections, Serene must make a decision about how to move forward or solve a problem. Serene’s abilities—which are similar to yours—allow him to see how a choice will affect the outcome of a situation. You are presented with two options, and you get a brief and general preview of the consequences of those options. Some information is clear, while some is enigmatic. Your choice affects how the story plays out going forward, which brings me to one of the most interesting things about Quantum Break—the live-action TV component.

At the end of the first 4 acts, you’re treated to a fully-acted, 20-30 minute live action TV show that provides additional story context, character development, and sets up the next act. It plays out exactly how you would expect, and it’s shot in a style that reminds me of something like 24. The acting in these sections ranges from passable to good, but it never bothered me. Despite a few moments of awkward dialogue or weird pacing, it’s fantastic. It adds an interesting and unexpected shakeup to the traditional video game format. I’ve always been fascinated by transmedia projects, so this is exactly the kind of thing I love to see. It certainly won’t be for everybody, but I personally loved it. Depending on your choices in the junction points, this live-action series can change rather substantially.

The budget for the game was obviously enormous. The actors/voice actors they brought in all do a solid job, and I thought Aiden Gillen (Serene) and Shawn Ashmore (Jack Joyce) were both great. Unfortunately, the game’s budget could not save the PC version from a host of annoying performance issues. As I understand it, things were much worse at launch—and it doesn’t seem to have affected the Xbox One version much at all—but even with patches, the game has a tendency to crash or drop frames to an unplayable level until you either restart your computer or verify the integrity of the game cache in Steam. These moments were quite annoying, but after I started closing out of the game before starting the next act, the problems occurred less frequently. Still, with a budget so massive, you’d hope this sort of thing wouldn’t be an issue in the first place. With that in mind, the game looks fantastic from a technical perspective, and the animations and visual style for all the time-related mechanics are awesome.

This game certainly isn’t for everyone. But it really blew me away. Despite some notable problems and questionable gameplay design, the moment to moment action in this game is a ton of fun; it’s like playing an action movie or a TV show that just so happens to have an incredibly interesting story. With its roughly 10 hour runtime, it’s a fast-paced and exciting science fiction romp that, at least in my eyes, was clearly made with a ton of passion. If my reviews were an attempt at an objective critique, I'd have to knock off a star for some of the issues. But damn it, I want more games like this.

Quantum Break is a great experience - Remedy have done it again and crafted another unique game.

The graphics, sound and gameplay are excellent, with an intriguing and ambitious plot filled with solid writing and a host of top actors. The mix of in engine and live action cut scenes that effect each other's stories is also a breath of fresh air, despite these tailing off a little towards the game's conclusion.

Although a little rough around the edges, with the concept perhaps not allowed to be fully fleshed out, I still thoroughly enjoyed Quantum Break and would definitely recommend it to shooter and sci-fi fans. There's also plenty of replay value here too, with decisions made being able to heavily alter the narrative. Oh and keep an eye out for all the Alan Wake references!

Oustanding title. If you're into time travel stories, this is definitely worth trying.
Offers about 10-12 hours of linear story content with great video captures. Add 2-4 more to this if you read and listen to all the collectible story content, which let's you dive deeper into the plot.
Gameplay is super fun with the powers, but nothing groundbreaking. The story was good. But the overall ambient when time goes crazy and craziness applies to the level design is the star of the show here!

Gonna try another playthrough to choose different other story paths and try out what it changes. But in the end it is a great buy!

A-list actors in a video game? Awesome. Great effects, decent story and script, decent action and gameplay overall.

Minor complaints, but it's worth getting this game if for nothing else than to see an A-list film production wrapped inside a game. It does work well and it's fun to be part of, even if there are plenty of little things to gripe about.

Fun fact : I got this game almost almost 3 yrs ago and didnt get to playing it until now.

I kinda wish I played it earlier cus it's really that good.
The story is kinda ok , the usual sci-fi kind , pretty good actually . Combine it with the combat and on hard difficulty you have a truly wonderful experience . It took me around 22hrs to finish the entire story along with all the achievements (they are pretty easy to get in this game if u follow the guide i linked).

The story is divided into 5 acts along with episodal content which makes the game look like a tv serial making the story more entertaining . Try not to skip cutscenes if you are hunting achievements as some of em depend on the cutscenes to unlock. There are some choices that u need to make which will have consequence later in the story. You can replay and experience all the options.

I finished the game on hard difficulty and i gotta tell you , its not that hard if you play fps shooters eventhough some enemies are indestructable from the front.

The abilities that u get provides a variety of ways to get around hard enemies and killing them (abilities here are related to time) .

It took me 10 tries to finish the final boss battle (on hard difficulty). Finishing it and completing the game 100% along with all the achievements gave me immense satisfaction that i have missed for a long time ( as i dont play singleplayers now).

I certainly recommend this game to basically as you will surely enjoy the story unless you are against these kinda games. Im actually waiting to buy Control Deluxe Edition right now on sale which is similar to quantum break and was one of the best games of last year .

https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1256476282

Check this guide out if you want to get all achievements.

THANK YOU :heartris:

The game is awesome, the gameplay is quite unique and the choices and consequence is actually different than other game, this game you will know what will happen. But i feel there should be more choices with the main character. The graphics is good for 2016, and the gameplay is around 7-8 hours. Then you also get a 20 minute live action movie per episode. That live action movie help with filling the blanks in the story. I like how your character automaticly hide behind covers everytime there is one. Altho one of my complains be, most of the guns there has really low damage. Only a few that can one tap headshot, or actually is strong enough before you run out of ammo. Altho there are ammo cache every gunfight locations. Another great game from Remedy Entertainment

Writing? Perfect. Better than Netflix shows. Gunplay? Fun as f. It's like you're in a movie. Science behind it? 10/10. IF you have a brain to comprehend basic quantum mechanics. Cool factor? 22/10.

In game story cinematics? Get it on YouTube.

Your cutscenes aren't here with the game. You can only stream it. Yes, so every damn time you want to watch that key part of the story, you beg the server for it. Depending on your luck, it can pauses every 2 seconds and tells you you can't steam it. I had to do this on YouTube. This is a hideous way to handle the cinematics with key elements to the story. You can't do this to a game which is super heavy on narratives and make it dependent on an awful streaming service or fluctuations of internet quality, then call it a good game, so despite liking to play it very much, I'm not calling it one.

Remedy says they are masters of cinematic action games in the game's description, and they are not wrong. This game is a proof of it. It is one of the best action games I played. It has great combat that never feels dull. The story is great with branching paths which provides replayability. I really liked the live action show in the game. It adds context to the story. It is one of the most underrated masterpiece. You must play it to believe it.

It's a Remedy game, what more can be said? ;) basically you play as a guy who's bro created a time machine. Then your bestie feels a lil power hungry and uses the time machine for personal gain and creates Monarch Solutions, a R&D conglomerate built to originally stop the end of time but can only save a few people on a time ark. You time travel to stop your bestie from breaking time and kill alot of people in the process with cool time powers. The game looks amazing, the actors are top notch, great soundtrack and tight gameplay without bugs or glitches. It's open ended so we may get a QB2. Its a delightful little package that doesnt over stay its welcome or feel short. Worth it normal price, a steal on sale. :)

You know, I already forgot what it's like to just enjoy the game. Yes, it's not easy to call Quantum Break just a game, it's more of an interactive amusement for Remedy fans.

Gameplay features with controls and time dilation are presented very well. Each skill had to be used and it was really impressive. And most importantly, their narration and access for the player are provided evenly.

It is sad, of course, that the gameplay feature for choosing interchanges is greatly reduced. You have the opportunity to use it literally 3 times only. There are also some problems with graphics (of course, a port from XBOX, nothing surprising).

But in general, the game reminded me the old days when every story game was something special for me, when you woke up in the morning with a lot of inspiration to finish the story line. Now this has become a rarity, the entire multiplayer projects are devoid of this charm. Only cooperative projects and good friends/comrades (Да, Бен? ;)) could bring some new feelings and experience.

Quantum Break is an artistically distinct shooter, with a compelling and malleable plot and excellent performances from its main players in both their digital and live-action forms. While I wish more thought had gone into maintaining the thrill of discovering its time-twisting powers from start to finish.

Great game about TIME MACHINES from the makers of Control.

Arcade style shooting mixed with time distortion and manipulation for superpower abilities without the Marvel fluff.
They also mixed in a show at the beginning of every act that is influenced by your choices you make in the game when time splits off in two different directions.

The same actress who plays Jessie Fayden in Control is Beth Wilder in Quantum Break. I hope they make a second one. My favorite part was the visual effects of the time distortions. Masterfully done. Huge boats crashing into bridges while you're on them and time starts stuttering and you have to escape. Trains crashing in and out of buildings on a loop. And it looks SO TRIPPY. I may have liked this more than Control even though it's four years older. The show lets you chill between the action of the shooting which is nice.

A good example of how AAA studio did a quality but boring game.
As for me there are 2 weak aspects:

1 Combat is not challenging

Cinematic and dynamic but Jack's ability are OP and bots not smart even though the combat mechanics has a potential

2 Not enough motivation in characters
i don't know why, but with a solid Sci-fi core, epic scenes and good actors play, it's perceives messy and dull

PS
Still a good game, ez complete, buy on sale.

Quantum Break is a fantastic story that plays out like a movie, with excellent game play and exceptional acting. The separations of gameplay with the motion picture type segments made for an enjoyable experience that made this game both unique and compelling.

The graphics are superb. The capturing of the phenomenon of time fractures/stutters was done very well. The movement and interactions, as well as character models came of as realistic and immersive.

The gameplay was smooth. I had no game breaking bugs, and only once had one issue, where I had to find a coward bad guy hiding, which was keeping me from progressing. Aside from that one moment, the entire game was smooth and essentially flawless. The controls were easy to learn. I had no trouble using the skills of Jack, and found the difficulty level progressed very nicely with the advancing skills.

The story of Quantum Break is a captivating and well written adventure. I found myself compelled to not only finish the game, but to try different paths, to see the variable of outcomes that were included. The included collectibles in the game are worth finding, and add a lot of background to the story, which gave amazing depth. This video game did an exceptional accomplishment of written story, cinematic presentation, and video game experience combined.

This is a game I recommend everyone to take the time to experience, and I hope that I can come across many more games like this in the future. A top notch experience that makes video gaming more entertaining on a whole new level.

So, I just finished this tonight.

This game was interesting (mix of live action and gameplay) and fun, until it, suddenly, just ended.

The final boss fight was needlessly frustrating (mainly, save point before cutscene, with loading screen in the middle of a restart), and the threads didn't seem finished at the end.

The ending was open as if they expected to do DLC or a second game very soon after the first one. That didn't happen.

Feeling pretty disappointed. The videos were nice, but the payoff for the playthrough was not great. Not planning on going back through to pick up the couple collectables I missed at this point.

If there were stars, this would be a 3/5 for me.

???? They had potential to create awesome time powers like in Life is Strange, Superhot or even Bend Time/Slow Time in Dishonored/Skyrim but instead the powers were generic :

      - Time Stop (The name is misleading) is just a power to freeze an enemy
      - Time Dodge is a dash
      - Time Shield is surprisingly not just a shield but time also stops outside the shield
      - Time Blast creates a blast???
      The shooting is also quite bad, you can't shoot without aiming and can't crouch, instead there's an auto cover mechanic which isn't as good.
???? Then there are junction points between each acts where you have to make a choice between the possible outcomes of the future and after making that choice you will get a 30min live action episode based on your previous actions

I didn't find the story super amazing. The presentation and level design were pretty flawless though and the combat was fun and engaging and it was very cinematic. There are a few story beats and tonal shifts that were really jarring and unnatural that kinda annoyed me but overall it was a very positive experience I'm happy to have played.

A beautiful narrative that is engaging at every turn, delightful gameplay that's easy to learn yet hard to master, and definitely incredible visuals that will make your jaw drop all the way to the end.

Remedy never disappoints. This is one of the most polished singleplayer experiences you can ever get to play. To top it all off, it has a friggin' TV SHOW included right within the game; and that's not it, what happens on the show is essentially tied to the choices you make within the game. There are 4 major junction points where you get to make critical choices that determine how the show and the game plays out. This is the reason for the glamorous cast with the likes of Aiden Gillen (Littlefinger from GOT), Courtney Hope, Shawn Ashmore and Lance Reddick. They all do a fabulous job at carrying the story forward.

This game is, without a doubt, a MUST-PLAY for anybody who can run it on their system. It might be a little burdernsome on your PC, but that's inevitable when the graphics are this stunning.

i enjoy the gameplay i love the story and how remedy really never forget even small details and Jack is a cute fella. the addition of the cinematic scene [spoiler] can show you the perspective of other people indirectly involved at this and how they respond to the situation and can show you how people differ and how they do a lot of way and indirect sacrifices for the future. i think that was actually beautiful, i feel bad for both Liam and Charlie [/spoiler]

i will definitely go back to this one, for more Jack Joyce

I only have small problem tho

I enjoyed playing the game, hence the positive review. However, I knew going in that it would be a light experience, with simple mechanics and long cut scenes. Be ready for about 2 hours of cut scenes, and between only 7 to 8 hours of game play on the hardest difficulty.

Given its length, you can consider the price high however, its clear it cost a lot of money to get the actors on board and to get the production up to the value they are in the game which is the likely the brunt of why this game costs this much.

Only buy it if you want a game that is more of a narrative experience than a shooter, as those mechanics are simple and pretty easy to beat.

Quantum Break - a movie or a game? It's a mix of cutscenes and in-game actions to portray a very interesting story. The powers are fun to use, the graphics are remarkable and the game is well optimized. The music and acting is excellent, one of the best in the gaming industry. Special mention to Lance Reddick, the actor of Martin Hatch for his incredible acting.

The junction choices you make sadly does not affect the final ending, so I didn't bother replaying the game. Although it does affect the story between the acts which you can always watch on YouTube instead of playing the same thing all over again.

If you play this as an interactive movie, you'd enjoy this. I would recommend buying Quantum Break on sale.

[h2] Quantum Break [/h2]

[h1] The Start of Time [/h1]

The first impression created by this game is, by far, the best first impression I got from a game. This game is almost 6 years old but looks like a game made this year. It meets all the requirements for a 2021 release.

I was surprised to see that there are 20ish minute long live-action videos at the end of each of the 5 Acts. Well, there are obviously other games that utilize real actors for cut-scenes like Alan Wake’s American Nightmare, but this game is completely different and you’re about to find why.

[h1] About this Masterpiece [/h1]

[h3] The Story of when Time Almost Stopped [/h3]

You play as a normal person named Jack Joyce, who has a brother (William Joyce) that is a Science Nerd and was obsessed with making a time machine. He teams up with Paul Serene and successfully manages to make one. But all goes to hell when their first run of the time machine fucks up time itself. During this fucking up process, Jack gets exposed to high contents of Chronon particles, and due to this, he gets powers/abilities that are time-based & the ability to move around during stutters (Stutters are when time randomly stutters i.e. Stops, rewinds, fast forwards, etc. Due to time being broken). I will stop here as I don’t want to spoil this extremely interesting plot that forced me to want to play the game as I was anxious to know what would happen next. But let me tell you this, the story in this game is very very very unique and extremely well delivered. I may be over-obsessed with this game just because of the story and some of its mechanics. I highly recommend playing this game till the end as it is worth your time and effort. So get ready to embark on a journey filled with a lot of plot twists.

[h3]Graphics and Sound Tracks[/h3]

Before I start, let me remind you that this game is almost 5 years old, but it has the capability to compete with some of the modern games, graphically. Most of the Animated cut-scenes that are continued from the gameplay are not animations. What surprised me is that they managed to perfectly do the lip-synching for the dialogues. The faces of all the characters showcase real emotion and their expressions are too perfectly designed. The lights in the game are beautiful. The way they reflect off the marble tiles is a sight to admire. In Layman’s terms, this game has overwhelmingly beautiful and highly detailed visuals. The animated cut-scenes are even more eye-catching. The WOW Factor in this game is their Act-end 20-minute long “Episode” that is played after the recap of the previous episode. They have real actors as these episodes are live-action. This brought up the question in my mind, “How big was their budget?” as these episodes were of Hollywood quality. The VFX, locations, acting, etc seemed like the developers spared no expenses in their making. After all, this is a TV Show type game. It is surprising to see how the player models in the game look exactly like their actors and even bear the same facial expressions. Yes, the way the game captured real emotional facial expressions is my favorite thing about Quantum Break.

The game has original soundtracks made specifically for this game. There is always a funky pop song that plays at the end of every Act, which is quite weird as that goes off the game’s official serious mood.

The transition from cut-scene to the game is very smooth, but from game to cut-scene is very weird. It will force your character into the required position which leads to the character sliding or teleporting into that position.

A special mention to the way explosive barrels explode. Upon shooting at them, they first catch fire, then that fire spreads slowly, then the barrel explodes. This is got to be the most accurate barrel explosion I have seen in a video game. If you continuously shoot at the barrel, it instantly explodes!

Here are some Screenshots taken by me during my Gameplay of the game (No spoilers, hopefully):


As you can see, most of these bugs/glitches are visual and do not affect the gameplay in any way.

[h1] Pros [/h1]
  • Hands down, one of the best visuals I have seen in a game that old.
  • Very unique gameplay mechanics.
  • Emotion-filled dialogues, the voice acting was perfect.
  • 20 minutes long live-action episode at the end of each act which makes you feel as though you are watching a TV series.
  • A very unique and twisty plot with the ability to make game-changing decisions.
  • It is possible to have an emotional attachment to some of the characters of this game.
  • The player models look exactly like their actors, which is truly something we should respect.
  • The game is not very long but the hours you invest in it are worth it as the game has the ability to seize all your attention and force you to finish it.
  • You can play the game as the other decision you did not take thanks to the timeline. So, the game does have a replayability value.


[h1]Cons[/h1]
  • A few bugs and glitches here and there.


[h1] My View on the Game [/h1]

If I am being honest, I 100% enjoyed each and every second I spent on this game. It was unique, not repetitive, and really attention-grabbing. I legit felt as though as I was watching a Netflix level show like Stranger Things or something. I would recommend getting the game on sale, although it is worth the base price.

To be fair, I am really about 50/50% about giving Quantum Break a positive/negative review. I just have the pure AAA drive, but some odd reason its become both annoying and boring with its gameplay and the live action movie taken about half for the game. Some may like it, other don´t.

Pros:
- Fair Story/Plot
- Short campaign
- Decent soundtrack
- Brilliant Voice acting + motion capturing

Cons:
- Disappointed gameplay
- Boring live-action video
- More movie than video game.
- Few performance issue

Got the game for 75% off and i honestly felt that was the right price for it.
Completed the game in about 9 hours, died a lot to a a boss fight.
So someone better could easily do it quicker than me.
Played with 360 controller and it felt great, some of the acting was a bit questionable but overall enjoyed the single player.
Game has natural stopping points / episodes / chapters so you dont need to feel you need to complete in one sitting.

Great game if you're into plot, setting and 20 minute live action sci-fi corporate drama between chapters.
The combat is passable and the framerate is meh, but it looks great. Fantastic art direction and voice acting.
I'd say this game falls between a contemporary (2016) sci-fi action series and a video game. Closer to a video game though, furtunately.

P.S.: The game is developed on both gameplay and as a TV show: there are 5 acts and after each of them there is a 20 minutes episode, directed and played IRL to explain the part that acts against the main character. That's a pity that the whole game lasts 7 hours, if Remedy had developed more the characters and some aspects of the plot, the game would have been defined a masterpiece by everyone, no doubts.

I completed this game twice on Xbox One, once on Windows 10 and just completed it again on Steam. I enjoyed the game that much, that I plan to play it again on Steam to mop up the last few achievements.

For a game released in 2016, Quantum Break still competes with AAA games in terms of visuals, story, gameplay and production. The episodic TV show fits in nicely with the story, but you have the option of skipping them for those of you who would rather play game instead of watching a 20-30 minute show.

I'm gonna keep this short-er, which is very unlikely for me.
I bought this game on sale, after playing Control, which I reviewed and I found great.
Quantum Break is a game that that to me, especially after Control, doesn't seem to a very strong identity. I meant that the game does a lot well, but also has some not-so-great moments. The gameplay is very fun, and using time-related powers is just amazing. At the same time sometimes the game limits your movements arbitrarily and for no real reason. It kills the gameplay flow compared to something like Control, where the map is your playground. It changes camera position and gameplay speed out of nowhere, and it's usually just to have the characters slowly walking and talking, which might as well be a cutscene at that point.
Talking of gameplay flow, after each act of the game, you have to see a live-action show they shot with the actors. The cast is just wonderful, and one of the actresses is actually in Control! It progresses the story while offering more details and a different point of view before continuing to the next chapter.
It's a nice idea, and it means that you play half the story and watch the other half, but in a game that already struggles to make me fully enjoy its movement and combat system for more than 10m at a time, having to just sit in front of the PC watching a 30/40m video is not necessarily what I expected when I started this completely blind. It's a nice idea, but I would have rather have a slightly longer/detailed game that is just a standalone game and a better show that was hosted on Netflix or even on Microsoft Store for free: both standalone but connected. In the game you meet this character called Burke, you see him like twice in the game because he's mostly in the show.
This is why I find it stupid not to develop both ideas more to get a better result: a full game and a full show that together completes each other without being forced on the player. A bit like Final Fantasy's XV Kingsglaive that it's a separate movie that then connects to one of the DLCs, but it doesn't force you into a 2h movie while playing - not the best example, I am aware.
Another thing I didn't appreciate about the show is that it's only possible to stream it on Steam, while on Microsoft Store it can be downloaded separately for offline play, which is even worse than a DRM. The show is high resolution and it requires a lot of bandwidth to stream it, if you don't have a strong internet or don't have it all you won't be able to experience the whole game. Most importantly, though, is that if Remedy servers close and they don't let us stream this - massive - 75GB videos anymore, this version of the game is worse than a pirated one.

In conclusion, it's not a bad game, especially if you're into heavy narrative titles as I am. Gameplay, when allowed, it's crazy fun and I would suggest it. It's a cool idea, it's the execution that is lacking IMHO.

A solid 5/10, it's not bad, but not exceptional. Hopefully, there will be a sequel!

the game is a must buy it gives a little bit of nostalgia as of black mesa in which the facility is breached by aliens but in this game the time fracture occurs or simply the time space fields are altered for about 3 dollars in sale the game is a win-win


talking about the gameplay it is awesome and the ability of the character is OP too
taken from the plots of the original series Quantum break from 2016 he actors are real as they have given their motion captures and facial expressions in it.
but still the game did not manage to gather huge profits despite the efforts and funds they put in it's making.

also i forgot to speak of the similarity in quantum break and interstellar ... the loop of the 4th dimension that is the time that means what is supposed to happen is gonna happen.


Enjoy <3 :D

Quantum Break is a very underrated game with a compelling story and interesting gameplay. The one thing i would critize is the shortness of the main story, which could have been longer in my opinion. But regardless of that i believe Quantum Break is a well made game and i can recommend to try it out!

Quantum break is a fantastic game made by Remedy (the Finnish geniuses behind Max Payne and Alan Wake) It's about time manipulation and the protagonist gains time-related powers during the game. Also, the graphics are really awesome and the gameplay is jaw-breaking.

Between acts, you watch live-action episodes with actors. The whole thing is like a big-budget TV show and it's very interesting. But be warned: Charlie Wincott (the millennial hipster IT guy) is rather cringy and you may not like him.

In all, if you like time manipulation games with a great story and gameplay, then Quantum break is easily for you.

Sorry folks, time to go...

I'm convinced the guys at Remedy are incapable of delivering a bad game because they blew my mind once again, just like they do every single time. Is Quantum Break a game, a movie or a combination of both? Whatever it is, it's one hell of an experience, one that deeply boggles the mind. It extensively explores the concept of time and the possibility of it ending forever with the universe simply stopping in its tracks. A timeless universe is quite difficult to imagine but Remedy have done an incredible job at providing us with an example of what it may look like.

As you can guess, when we're talking about time manipulation this complex we're bound to require plenty of visual effects to back up the concept and boy are they staggering in this game. The whole graphics are marvelous and you can hardly tell when the gameplay switches into a cutscene or vice versa. The experience is seamless, smooth and polished in every step of the way - that's why it often feels like a movie. Speaking of movies, gameplay chapters are separated by live-action intermission episodes which are no less awesome than the game itself. Almost all of the characters appear both in the gameplay and the movie sections and their dedication towards acting and making Quantum Break an incredible journey can be felt all the time.

The gameplay would basically be your usual 3rd person shooter if not for the time powers that the main character has. During combat the player can use these powers to quickly move around behind the enemy for a takedown, deflect bullets, stop time in a localized area and more. Pretty entertaining when you combine them all. Sometimes the powers need to be used to traverse the environment in pretty clever ways, but these puzzles are nothing too difficult. They fit in well within the game to separate combat sections and give a break to the player.

All in all it's gotta be one of my favorite stories in a video game. No matter how many times I play it, it always feels just as exciting as the first time. A very good purchase for anyone who loves a good mystery / thriller / sci-fi mashup.

Personal note, I LOVE Remedy. Max Payne, Alan Wake, Control, I love them all. This game got some bad reviews because too many people wanted a full-out shooter. This is NOT a full-out shooter. It's a narrative, and a damn good one, with very intense bouts of combat. If you love Remedy's story telling, this is a must buy. If you're looking for Doom, move on.

With that said, this does some things that I've never seen done in a game before. The blend between live action and game play is super cool and very well done and the graphics are not like anything I've ever encountered in a game. The fireworks scene about mid-game, made me stop and just stare, slack-jawed, for a while. Not too many games can make me stop dead in my tracks to enjoy the view, but this one did. Multiple times.

The biggest failure of the game is the cliffhanger ending. I HATE that, because you never know if it's ever going to be resolved in a sequel. There's SO much more story left for them to tell. However, with that said, I still strongly recommend this game. It's a heck of a ride.

Absolutely fantastic game. Its a true gem if you like narrative heavy stories. As a shooter it is nothing exceptional, but as a gaming experience it is brilliant. When I played Control it became one of my favourite games, and playing Alan Wake was another great experience from this studio. I went into this game after playing both and had high expectations. I was not disappointed at all. This is now firmly on my list of favourite games too. Its just a shame that after so long there is unlikely to be a sequel.

Honestly the story is great, graphics and gameplay are enjoyable but the one biggest thing that ruins this for me is the ingame tv/live action content. Im not talking about the fact the game moves from 3d to real life but rather that you need to actually have an internet connection to stream content to a microsoft server which errored out on me multiple times. Want to play offline? Be prepared to miss alot of content. Apparently from what Ive read on the discussions the xbox and microsoft store versions allow episodes to be downloaded to local storage but not here on steam. Its not even like something thats skippable since you would be missing an actual 20-30min of accelerated plot like watching a real tv show episode so by the time you pick up the control ingame againthe story has advanced with tremendous detail.

MIcrosoft really tried to leverage the whole xbox one thing needing to be always online by implementing ingame streaming of content that does not get downloaded but that soon fell apart after the backlash and while they fixed it with episode pack dlc to not stream it elsewhere, steam version is basically abandoned in its original state which is a shame.

Quantum Break, the first Remedy game after Alan Wake is a high budget combination of really sophisticated blend of FMV and a technically quite good shooter.

While Quantum Break definitely is a great game, I personally found its writing to not be on par with Alan Wake. The production value of the movie sequences as well as the cast were both high profile, but the end product is far from as revolutionary than Remedy would have liked it to be.

While I definitely do not consider this a must have title, it's a great gap filler for the lack of good story driven shooters in the last couple of years. It also aged quite well and still looks very pretty in 4K.

I wish they develop more games like this. a True masterpiece

I really enjoyed Quantum Break. While the game play was reminiscent of other titles, such as Remember Me, the game still had some really unique elements. The live action episode portions were immaculately weaved through the game play and really cemented Quantum Break as a unique game.

My only criticisms are:
- You learn all of your powers very early. It's a bit overwhelming and doesn't lengthen it out to feel so much like you're getting better as you play through (though you can upgrade your abilities with chronon sources).
- I wish the choices you made at junctions had a little more impact, though I enjoy the concept overall.
- The difficulty of your final battle with Serene is not on par with the difficulty of the rest of the game, no matter what setting you play on it feels like one of the most tedious to win fights I've ever taken part in.

It's a wonderful mess to go through. Absolutely love the story, but gameplay itself is is not exactly amazing. It's a passable third person shooter and let's leave it at that.

The really weird part of it are the story choices you make in a story about not having choices. They change the way things unfold a bit, but not in a major meaningful way. You can change them later and revisit certain sections of the game to collect a few more bits of trivia. The problem is that they also affect the 20+ minute live action cutscenes which are streamed to your machine. If you just want to quickly go back and see what you missed, you will not have a great time trying to scroll through the videos with the streaming and buffering. Let's not do this again please.

Game play upgrade on Alan Wake. Combat is superior, but not the major focus. Atmosphere is not as good, but the story, while a bit fractured for me, is a level above. These types of cinematic/story driven games are an acquired taste only Remedy and Quantic Dream have been able to master. I enjoy titles from both.

A few issues, the end boss fight. Why why WHY!! Had to restart the act dropping the difficulty. I don't play these types of games to reload, die, repeat. Also had an odd issue when fighting the occasional bullet sponge enemy, the controls on keyboard would reverse under heavy use. Extremely frustrating in a high pace set piece when mashing away, which in later segments happen often. A few reloads happened because of this.

I was surprised (pleasantly) to find that in-between acts (levels) I had to watch 20 mins of video footage of the same actors who portray the in game characters. Was generally high quality footage, CGI and acting.

Don't think we'll see a sequel which is a shame as many plot points not followed up 9.5/10

Graphics and story are okay (decent performance on a 3090 GTX, but still does not feel very fluid even on 100+ FPS, some mouse control issues I think). But what completely spoils all the fun in this game for me is the awful checkpoint system. A checkpoint 5-10 mins before a boss fight. Great way to get frustrated. I don't like to replay 5-10 mins of easy gameplay just to get to a boss fight. If you do, go ahead, give it a try.

I'm a huge fan of Alan Wake and i enjoyed Control a lot, this one not so much. At first the characters seem interesting and some of them are played by excellent actors but the story falls apart completely after a few hours. A lot of characters lack developement, the tv series fragments get very tedious and some plot points at the end get ridiculous. The gameplay doesn't help since it's a VERY generic shooter with some time powers that are more flashy than fun and some light platforming segments. I wouldn't recommend this even if you're a fan of Remedy.

I have often wondered how hard it could be to create a world and style that is believable but at the same time majestic for games taking place in alternative realities. Wolfenstein: The New Order was one of the few games that got this right, creating massive and interesting architecture supported by a coherent, distinct style while still remaining within the confines of real world physics. Considering that the world design in its sequel, The New Colossus was not built in the same vein, the answer seems to be “pretty hard”.

There are very few games that achieve this and Quantum Break is one of them. Within five minutes of starting a new game, you’ll see two contrasting buildings, a modern Physics building and the more classical library. Both of them are designed within the realm of believability but on the other hand, they have some minor touches that establish this perception of being in an alternative reality. As the game progresses, indoor spaces will have more futuristic look with a certain sense of extravagance and this will keep being contrasted by the rundown look of the places that are used by the game’s protagonists, establishing a clear sense of divide between “the good” and “the bad”.

Finding even this type of environmental storytelling with unique visuals would allow most games to set themselves apart from the usual rabble. For Quantum Break, this is just the beginning. As an example, one of the most striking accomplishments of the game is the use of particle effects. Particle effects have been in games for such a long time but to see them being used as a major part of how the world and its events are conveyed to the player is a testament to how a nonconforming, unified, imaginative art direction can elevate a game.

Quantum Break shattered and went beyond all my expectations with its world and did the same thing again with its story. Gaming in general, unfortunately, is not on the same level of traditional media when it comes to writing but this is another facet where Quantum Break is simply exceptional. The logic behind time travel and its consistencies holds up throughout the game with interesting characters that have solid motives and backgrounds without being too overt about their intentions. Expository dialogue never turns into a lecture and the flow of conversations are natural and informative. Impeccable facial animations and all around great level of acting especially helped with initial engagement to the story and it has been a delight watching Aidan Gillen and Lance Reddick together after The Wire, in a similar hierarchy as well.

Like a great TV series Quantum Break always had me impatiently moving to the next chapter with so many details only noticeable if you pay attention to the background and the variety of video recordings, emails. Even reading random notes, dossiers etc. located inside the offices that does not show an interaction prompt have so many details to them. If you want to enjoy Quantum Break fully, I recommend reading every piece of information thoroughly and focusing on every scene even though skimming is usually fine in most games.

The live action TV series in between however, does not benefit from same strengths. It mostly focuses on side characters and tosses amazing time stutter/manipulation effects out of the window. It does not have that amazing direction and consistency found within the game. Northlight, Remedy’s narrative engine, does better visuals than 720p streaming with film grain anyway. Brief focuses on other characters is a good idea for this game and instead of live action making them shorter gameplay segments with a few gameplay mechanics unique to characters thrown in would have benefited the game a lot more.

When Max Payne first came out it gave us a much simpler experience of time manipulation mechanics called bullet time but even that was an amazing experience for a generation that just had been stunned by The Matrix two years before Max Payne. The ongoing impact of The Matrix for my generation cannot be overstated. So many cousins were kicked in the chest right after “I know kung-fu” yell and so many walls had foot prints after failed wall running attempts. Although Jack Joyce is not as capable in hand to hand combat, you can only time rush and tackle a single enemy, his six different time manipulation skills is as close to being Neo in a game. Especially time dodge and time spot will come in handy in combat but each skill has different uses and basic puzzle platforming parts where you employ these skills provide a good change of pace. I wish there were more of these sequences and the difficulty was a bit more “puzzling”, nevertheless seeing that time skills are not only useful for combat leads you to think more about the true extent of time manipulation.

For all its various enemy types, weapons and different skills, action parts of Quantum Break fail to take advantage of its strengths. Mouse feels like moving an analogue stick and does not allow twitchy movement. Controlling Jack is not a smooth experience and he takes too long to respond to direction changes, he may even sometimes get stuck in place. As your time skills evolve these can be easier to ignore as you would be feeling like a god, albeit a clunky one, if you can get past the opening moments that are not quite enjoyable.

I had also praised graphics before and they truly hold up even today (this game had the most detailed rug patterns I have ever seen, my mind was truly blown) but I also did quit the game five minutes in, to look for a fix for the terrible motion blur. All the details Remedy has built in the game are just a random blur if you play this vanilla and I am not exaggerating. Probably, a lot of compromises were made to make this game playable on an Xbox One. Thankfully, there is the Helix Mod that completely removes the blur with other added enhancements. Don’t forget to turn off upscaling from settings as well. I don’t think I could have played this game that I enjoyed immensely without the Helix Mod (sadly, Steam overlay does not work with Helix Mod, meaning that I could not take screenshots in one of the most screenshottable games ever made).

The term cinematic experience has been thrown around so many times for console games with a mediocre story and lacking engaging gameplay that it lost all meaning. Quantum Break on the other hand is “the” cinematic experience without all the caveats and baggage the term brings. If action was smoother, live action sequences were gameplay and Helix Mod was incorporated into the game this could have been a masterpiece. Nevertheless, it became one of the games that I wish I could erase from my mind and experience again.

Let’s say time is an egg/10

The fun of the game centers on exploring the story, and every time there is a puzzle or a puzzling doubt, the answer must lie somewhere in the flow. In the seemingly short process, there are multiple branches, multiple endings and the AB side shaping of each character. These factors give players reasons to play for multiple weeks, and also ensure that players still have goals to follow in the multi-week game. If Quantum Broken is described as an object, I would like to compare it to a jigsaw puzzle. The flow, the collection and the live action episodes are all the pieces of the jigsaw puzzle, and only after all the collection is completed can you discover its original appearance.

My Playtime: 17.7h (100% achievement, finished the game)
Grindy Achievement(s): No.
Optional Achievement(s): Yes (~24 achievements, most are missables).
Difficult Achievement(s): No.

[h1]Intro[/h1]
Quantum Break is a third-person shooter with time manipulation mechanics. It has a lot of cutscenes, both live-action and in-game, which were told from different points of view.

Pros:
- Different choices that slightly affect the story
- Ammos is basically unlimited
- Collectibles that give more depth to the story

Cons:
- Live-action movies are streamed
- Some checkpoints and cutscenes can take too long if you retry a battle
- Poorly designed boss fights

Specs
Intel Core i5-9300H 2.40GHz, 8GB RAM, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650
The game was mostly played on ultra, although one boss fight was done in low due to the game crashing. I'm not sure if it's related to the graphics or not.

[h1]Should you buy this game?[/h1]
Yes.
If you like story-rich games and don't mind the annoying boss fights, buy this game. Make sure that you have a good internet connection to stream the live-action scenes though.



[h1]In-Depth Review[/h1]

[h3]Visuals[/h3]
Characters look similar to their live-action counterpart, minus the hair that looks shinier than usual. Most posters will be blurred if you play the game in the lowest setting though. There was one cutscene that shows a portrait that was barely noticeable.

The buildings and characters look real and the game makes a clear distinction whether you are in a time-still state or not. I liked the fracturing effect the most. Particles will be flowing around a certain object, shifting your focus on it.

[h3]Story[/h3]
The story is focused on time travel. To be honest, I didn't know why the live-action movie was starring an unknown individual at the start. It turns out that all stories, both in the live-action and the game, will converge at some point. I like how the live-action touches the side that wasn't experienced by the main character. I became empathetic with the other characters, especially with how they ended up to be.

Despite having multiple story branching, it will only affect a slight part of the story. I'm still impressed with the number of details though. The slight change won't happen in only one cutscene - it will be retained as you progress, with characters noting the detail from time to time. Although you can't change the ending, it still makes sense due to the concept that was told at the beginning of the game.

https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2798669423

The game does well to explain its mysteries. I liked how the time travel concept was introduced, along with how the main character is obtaining his powers. The main character didn't get his power just because he can - it will all be related to the story, which in turn will be used to progress the plot and the game. The mysteries that the ending gives will also encourage you to interpret what will happen yourself, especially since everything has been laid out if you are attentive enough.

[h3]The Game[/h3]
Gameplay
The game is a third-person shooter at its core. You'll also have time manipulation powers which will help in taking out the enemies at your disposal. Despite being a shooter game, there won't be a lot of battles. The game is story-oriented at its core, forcing you to watch a lot of cutscenes and live-action movies. There might be some time when you have to move between areas, but areas will be mostly empty.

As a game that is focused on exploration, collectibles are also one of the main focuses of the game. They might help you to discover more about the main plot or upgrade your time powers. However, the game loves to provide points of no returns between checkpoints, forcing you to restart the level from the beginning if you miss the collectibles.

Combat
As someone who can't shoot moving targets, the combat is alright. Some fights might give challenges due to the number of enemies, especially the bulkier ones. However, you need to restart from the last checkpoint whenever you die, and some checkpoints might be too far from the area where you die.

Ammos are basically unlimited. There might be some weapons that can't be refilled, but you don't have to worry about using ammo in most weapons. A bag that allows you to stock up on ammo will be available in each fight, allowing you to use your weapon without worry. Different weapons also have different advantages and disadvantages - although you can finish most fights with a pistol at the beginning, you'll have to switch to different weapons for the bulkier enemies later on.

Snipers can be annoying to beat though. These kinds of enemies can kill you in 2 shots, without any red marking to indicate that you are almost dead. Moreover, they tend to be placed in a high place, making it hard to kill them.

Bosses are terribly designed. The game only has ~2 boss fights in the game, and both are just plain annoying. You need to figure out their weakness and attack patterns before attacking, and you need to rewatch the intro cutscene whenever you die. The final boss is made worse with the one-hit KO attack that was spammed almost everywhere. It can take a bit of luck to defeat them, especially if you play the game in the hard mode.

Length and Difficulty
I finished the game in 17.7 on the hardest difficulty. Although most fights are pretty easy to beat, some can be challenging to beat, especially near the end of the game. I had to restart some fights a few times and change my approach because of that.

Although the game has multiple story branching, I don't think it's worth it to replay the game just to see how the other branch goes. The game allows you to start the game from a certain act of the game, and since most changes will only be displayed in the live-action movies, you just need to either load the act with the branching paths or watch the video online to see what happens.

Problems
The final boss is problematic since the boss' attack can still be executed while you are on the killing animation, even if you didn't see the attack beforehand. Moreover, the boss' attack indicator tends to not show when you cast a skill.

There is also no subtitle for the collectible audio and video files, and the subtitles for the main story can be off sometimes. Lastly, since the live-action scenes are streamed, there is a chance that the video will be buffering if you have a slow internet connection. I didn't enjoy the first live-action movie because of that, and I usually can watch YouTube videos without buffering.

[h1]Conclusion[/h1]
I didn't expect Quantum Break to be a first-person shooter. I thought it was just an easy game that has a heavy emphasis on the story. Well, I nailed the story-rich part right, and I enjoyed it a lot. I was hooked on the movie most of the time, becoming more curious about what will happen. I liked how everyone has their motives - you can see what drives them to make their choice in the end. This makes the characters more relatable and human.

Although the shooter part can be annoying at times, I still had fun doing it. Moreover, there aren't that many shooting scenes, which also helps me to focus on the story. If you like to play a story-rich game with a lot of exploration and shooting in between, feel free to buy this game.

Oh, there is a game in the cinematics scenes and full real acting episodes between chapters. Hell, it is a TV show, not a game.

The combat is worthless and untasty of all times even with time-traveling.

Better watch on Youtube.

Great story, horrible gameplay. TV series is more engaging than the actual gameplay.
