I'm a little busy with Dark Souls III at the moment, but Quantum Break has always intrigued me. Partially because I never quite understood what it was!
Now that it's out in the wild Quantum Break has become a bit more um... quantifiable, but it's always struck me as a difficult pitch. It's tough to explain the appeal of Quantum Break in a sentence or two. I feel as though that might hurt any potential success the game might have.
How are you guys and girls enjoying the game so far?
Here's what I'm hearing: Quantum Break's hook (the whole real life drama show combined with gameplay situation) is actually very well executed. The game itself is a very well polished affair, if a bit generic.
The 'TV' sections? I'm hearing they're a step above what you might expect, but hardly troubling any high budget science fiction show you might watch on Netflix.
Which is the issue I always thought I'd have with Quantum Break. A game like this — in order to be a true success — would have to knock both out of the park. It would have to be a great game and a great television show. That's a tall order for any studio.
Props to Remedy for taking the risk though. I expect I'll give this a go at some point down the track.
How are you all finding it?
