Way back in 2013 (summer) i wrote about Remedy Entertainments upcoming action game “Quantum Break” (the are still a TBA title for Xbox One. And yes, it´s a Xbox One exclusive game). But it´s been rather quite since then. In fact, i forgot about the game. But then i saw the gameplay demo at this years Gamescom event.
And i started to get a “bit” excited about Quantum Break again. Not everyone seems to be impressed by the Gamescom 2014 demo though. I saw this comment by Heikki360ES on Youtube for ex:
“I’m sorry, but i don’t like it. I love Max Payne. I love Alan Wake. But i don’t like what we’ve seen so far about Quantum Break. I mean, the gunfire. It doesn’t look polish at all, too quick, bad IA, and i’m not sure about the freeze time power.
In my opinion, that should be something special, something you do once in a while. Looks so overpowered. Alan Wake gunfire wasn’t something special, but it worked flawlessly from minute 1. I can’t say the same about this one.”
And he/she had a really good point. But just like always, i want to try the game in question before i nail down the flaws and so on. So, what do you guys think about Quantum Break so far? Cool or nah?
About Quantum Break:
Developed exclusively for Xbox One, Quantum Break blurs the line between television and gameplay, integrating the two into one seamless, uniquely immersive experience. From Remedy Entertainment, the critically acclaimed creators of Alan Wake and Max Payne, comes a revolutionary entertainment experience that weaves the cinematic action of intense gameplay with the tension and drama of scripted television, creating a world where each has a direct impact on the other.
In Quantum Break, our desperate hero fights a highly personal battle to save the future before time literally runs out. As time breaks down, impossible, split-second moments of destruction turn into epic stages of time-powered action. The actions you take, and the choices you make, shape your experience as the narrative unfolds. As you play, a personalized “director’s cut” of the show is created just for you, based on the decisions you make during the game. Quantum Break will lead the new generation of interactive entertainment, as the show and game deliver a holistic entertainment experience made possible only on Xbox One.
