Critic Reviews for Quantum Break

An average shooter tied to a compelling, confident story, but the TV show is ultimately an expensive, if entertaining, gimmick.

No Recommendation / Blank

A slick yet hollow hybrid of television and third-person shooting, Quantum Break sees electric style winning out over a lack of substance.

Quantum Break is a stylish, often-exhilarating third-person shooter wrapped up in a tautly paced tale of time travel.

The elements of a fantastic and creative action game are all present and correct, and at times Quantum Break is indeed both of those things. But unfortunately its various disparate parts tend to get in each other's way, leading to a needlessly complicated presentation that inhibits anything from shining as brightly as it should.

A less than fruitful mix of TV show and video game, where although the individual components are competent they're never quite interesting enough to justify the peculiar set-up.
