Quantum Break

Remedy Entertainment’s Quantum Break has been a fairly large success. Along with debuting in the UK with impressive numbers, it’s also the biggest selling new IP for the Xbox One from Microsoft Studios.

Speaking on Xbox Wire, Xbox marketing executive Aaron Greenberg revealed that, “Quantum Break was the #1 best-selling Xbox game around the world last week, and is now officially the biggest-selling new Microsoft Studios published IP this generation. In addition, last week Quantum Break was the #1 most played new game on Xbox, worldwide.

“The level of excitement we have seen from our fans around the world for Quantum Break has been humbling. We want to thank the community for their support for helping us achieve this international success.”

Creative director Sam Lake also weighed in on the game’s success. “Making Quantum Break has been a long journey. Creating a new AAA franchise is always a risk and a huge investment, but at Remedy we want to push ourselves, explore new ideas and realize new visions. It’s wonderful to see gamers want that too. We’re hugely grateful for the positive reception and glad to see that the story of Jack Joyce and Paul Serene resonates with so many players.”

    It should have cost 29.99-39.99. It definitely is not 59.99 worthy. Why? You’re simply paying for, 4 28 minute TV episodes, and 6 hours of filler gameplay. Normally, you about 39.99 for an entire seasons of your favorite show, or the upward of 59.99 for an entire box set of two seasons worth of your favorite shows, each season containing over 13 episodes. Or if you are in the UK, 4-6(LoL) Either way, I’d pay that for Several episodes.

    The gameplay is great, but the game lacks any content in itself –no sandbox mode, no time trial mode, no survival mode, no horde mode, no multi-player(and believe me, this would be a fantastic multiplayer game), no co-op modes etc. The thing about Next Gen first party titles, are the features, modes and unique ways of blending gaming elements with different modes etc. Or the invention of new modes. For instance, some sort of time-travel mode, where you can jump through time and play “time police” and/ or explore, or the option to wreak havoc as Paul Serene(a good time cop/ bad time cop mode). Just, something. I don’t like that I have to replay only the later acts, in order to replay the game using my full set of time skills. If you replay earlier acts, you might not have certain skills and find yourself constantly trying to use them. For instance, I replayed Act 1 and the first thing I tried to do was Time Rush toward the enemy to punch his face it…but did I have that move? No.

    What a humongous achievement.
