Quantum Break is a new fresh idea brought to us by remedy games. Will this game be remembered in the future or does it get left in the past?, Let’s find out.
Story: You play as Jack Joyce (played by Sean Ashmore) a young adult who has a tendency of getting in to trouble. Jack returns back to his home town of River Port and he is there to meet his longtime friend Paul Serene (played by Aidan Gillen). Paul needs help with an experiment at the River Port University that goes terribly wrong. Leaving Jack and Paul with different time based powers. While you thought Paul was once your friend he has become the main antagonist finding a company called Monarch Solutions which is now on the hunt for Jack Joyce because of the incident at the University. So now it is up to Jack Joyce to stop Paul Serene and restore time.
Gameplay: This is not your average third person shooter. During the action sequences you can hide behind cover shooting your way through enemies using your time powers. Sometimes you will encounter certain enemies that you have to use certain time powers to defeat these enemies which is a very interesting and cool idea because it gives you a chance to test out all the powers. Now while you are not shooting your way through a horde of enemies you are walking around collecting Intel and things of that nature it is very important you get everything because it will all tie in to the story. Which is absolutely fantastic not a lot of games do that so this made me happy. With your time sense everything you need to collect is highlighted yellow which is a nice help for those who have trouble finding things like myself. Quantum Break also has a new feature in a game that I have never seen before it has live action half hour TV episodes which is an amazing feature and I was shocked to see it is very important to watch these all the way through as they will tie in with the gameplay story. There are little puzzles to solve
Conclusion: Quantum Break is a game not to be missed. It’s a great original idea with a fresh plot but with a twist. The game play feels very smooth and every collectible you get ties in with the story. The action is great the characters are interesting there is not one bland character in this game especially when they come alive in the live action TV episodes.
