Quantum Break (Digital)

Overview -

Remedy began messing around with time manipulation back in 2001, when their sophomore title 'Max Payne' was a big hit on the old PlayStation 2. They have steadily been crafting their trade ever since, with a focus on highly cinematic experiences and solid gameplay. 'Quantum Break' has been in development for quite a long time now, especially considering its original release date was in 2014.

In addition to being a promised Remedy showcase on the Xbox One, 'Quantum Break' has the distinction of offering players a live-action story component.

Video Review


I’m going to be paradoxical as I describe 'Quantum Break's visuals, and I apologize for that in advance. It is a pretty game, built specifically for Xbox One tech. The art design is impeccable. It pulls off impressive and convincing displays, like its physics effects, which is very important for a game like this. The motion capture and lip syncing are unreal. It also has fuzzy textures and modeling and a 720p native resolution that occasionally has trouble maintaining 30fps. Despite any limitations they may have had, Remedy has used some snazzy techniques to achieve what is still an overall high level of visual peformance. It's worth mentioning that the Windows 10 version naturally has a different set of display settings, including 4K support.

Audio Review


The acting is by and large excellent, with standout performances from Lance Reddick and Dominic Monaghan. The sound effects and soundtrack are of a high quality, both in the video game and TV portions. Audio bugs are rare, although there is a nagging echo in a lot of the dialogue.

Final Thoughts

'Quantum Break', like any expensive exclusive, developed a great deal of expectations over time. By and large, the game lives up to those expectations. It has a few stumbles in its pacing and action, but it combines historic shooter conventions with a set of flashy, delightful superpowers and a live-action component that's easy on the eyes. If you have an Xbox One, this is undoubtedly a game you should play.
