Remedy Entertainment’s action adventure game with a twist of time traveling is almost here as Microsoft is expecting that Quantum Break will hit big to their Xbox One gamers. It also promised to have an innovative experience that let players experience the thrill from both video games and television series.
So far a series of game critics from different gaming websites and publications have tried the game and have given their verdict. Game Rant shares the compilation of reviews for the game.

Overall, Quantum Break makes for what can easily be considered one of the best console exclusives that the Xbox One has seen thus far, and this is the result of a number of different gameplay mechanics and story-telling decisions. It’s true that the narrative can be a lot to take in as a result of cutscenes and the live-action television show, and even more of what is happening in the world surrounding Jack Joyce is found through collectibles and in-game emails – which some may simply just not want to read. Taking the time to understand what’s happening in the game is well worth it, though.

By the end, you know the most important parts of the story. Replaying it to witness slightly altered events in the middle would require you to retread well-worn, sometimes boring territory for little payoff. Getting to the end of Quantum Break can be an interesting ride at times, but no matter how impressive the combat is, or how great the game looks, there’s no getting around the fact that it’s driven by a story with limited appeal and hindered by disappointing design decisions.

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, it ultimately didn’t prevent me from thoroughly enjoying Quantum Break’s 10-hour campaign, two times over.
Looking from the verdicts, it seems that Quantum Break has mixed reaction, though majority agrees to the presentation of the game. But players will soon be able to try the game once it is available on April 5 for Xbox One and PC.
