Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Quantum Break is a masterpiece

If you play Quantum Break as a cover shooter then you’re playing it wrong :)

What are these story contradictions?

I think that was directed at me? 

Well, I didn't play it like a cover shooter all the time but the time powers were essentially escape mechanisms that didn't liven up game play at all. You essentially used them as a means to run away, none of them were offensive except for maybe the time stop. Plus the level design was laughable and unimaginative, shooting galleries are just bad and should be left to die in last gen but QB brought it back. Forgot to mention that the platforming was terrible. 

I don't remember the story much but I remember this one part where the guy needed to get over a gate or through a door but instead of using his powers to rewind time to revert the door to a state where it was open he was forced to "find another way". First that's obviously to pad out the game and second it goes against the person's previously established powers. 

There were many more definitely but this is all I remember. 

Nah. Off the top of my head, he had:

-that slow motion run which let him do a running punch

-that time dash. When you rush somebody, they fall back so you can get headshots (there's even an Achievement)

-time bomb like grenade attack

-the one where he freezes everything so all of the bullets stack up and hit all at once

Also, per the story, he couldn't just rewind time when he wanted to. Only certain "broken" anomaly objects. He could stop things, though.

 

Sorry you didn't like it, though. It's cool.

My copy is still brand new and in it's packaging. I'll get around to it one day.

I liked the story a lot. But the gameplay was a bit bad.

But is a must play for who has a xbox or PC.



This game was Microsoft’s The Order. Lots of potential but ultimately terribly boring and flawed. The main character was so shallow, that I can’t even remember his name and the little game there was, was interrupted by very mediocre live action scenes. Anyone who calls this “maybe his best game this gen” must either not have played many games, or deserves to be patronised from now on.

I'm still salty its not on PS4 since I always wanted a game with time manipulation.

Wow. That's pretty condescending.

And yet I own all the consoles and have played lots of games this gen. Hope that helps.

Feel free to patronize because someone has a different taste in games than you :)

Remedy has to make games on PS4 as well.



 

Meh. Nothing special. Max Payne is a much better game. Even Alan wake was better. Max and Alan really need sequels.

Quantum i couldn’t care less about.
