Conclusion: In short then, Quantum Theory is just too flat, too unpolished and too unoriginal to make any positive lasting impression. There is little to offer here that you won't have seen implemented with far greater quality elsewhere, except perhaps the ability to throw a woman at somebodies head. As tempted as I am to say that mechanic alone makes it worth a purchase, it really, really doesn't.
Excerpt: Doom, Grand Theft Auto, Devil May Cry, Metal Gear, Castlevania, Metroid, and Gears of War…what do they have in common? Well, they're just one of the many franchises over the course of gaming history that have marked a major print in the industry and spawned countless copy cat games or, in some cases, superbly inspired ones. Games like Doom eventually lead to Half-Life. Devil May Cry eventually lead to God of War. Metal Gear inspired Splinter Cell. And Gears of War?
Summary: Quantum Theory is a Japanese-designed Gears of War knock-off that might have had some entertainment value if its aiming controls werenâ€™t so thoroughly and unforgivably off-kilter. The visuals and some set pieces have glimmers of creativity, but the stiff and squirrelly controls make it an experience of immersion-breaking frustration.
Pros: Some nice visuals, Some interesting set pieces
Cons: Aiming is nearly unworkable, Lots of boring corridors, Melee system is disorienting, Dull story
Excerpt: At this year's E3, Quantum Theory was mere yards from the Microsoft exhibit, where they were showing off Gears of War 3 . Unfortunately, the common sentiment regarding Tecmo's third-person shooter seemed to be polite variants of "it's a rip-off of Gears ." I think I can speak for most other writers when I say that we sometimes struggle to rise above such statements; we generally try our best to approach each new title with a completely blank slate.
