As everyone was expecting Quantum Break reviews to arrive on April 1, someone has broken the review embargo and shared details about the game online. Remedy Entertainment’s Quantum Break is slated for a global release on April 5, and the studio partnered with several media outlets to complete the game and share reviews. However, the first Quantum Break review is from a video game journalist, and he later had to remove it from the website.

The Jimquisition was the one that posted the review for Quantum Break, but afterward it was pointed out that it came out too early. Journalist Jim Sterling has removed the video, but according to the clip, Quantum Break deserves a rating of 8.5 out of 10. Sterling said that Quantum Break is a decent shooter but it is not the most revolutionary of games. The game has style and potential to deliver a better experience to players, but it is reportedly not as detailed and engaging as the other titles in the genre.

The Quantum Break review further states the game was able to fulfill its goal of delivering interactive entertainment and live action. One of these elements was reportedly reduced in scale at the time of development, but Quantum Break still came out well.

In Quantum Break, the basics of combat are reportedly not exciting enough, but the use of the protagonist’s abilities provides a dynamic gaming experience. The protagonist, Jack, can be controlled with simple button presses. Jack can perform several actions, including temporarily freezing the spaces in the world, produce time-splitting blasts and shields to sidetrack the bullets and more. Sterling’s overall review says that Quantum Break is a “great” game.

Apart from the Quantum Break reviews, Microsoft Xbox team seems confident about the success of the game. Recently, Xbox marketing executive Aaron Greenberg appeared on the TXR Podcast. Regarding the game’s potential success, Greenberg said, “We’ve been playing the game; we know it’s a great game. Fingers crossed, but I think we’re sitting on a mega hit.”

Quantum Break will be released for PC and Xbox One. The game includes a TV show featuring characters Dominic Monaghan, Shawn Ashmore, Lance Reddick, and Aidan Gillen.
