Quantum Conundrum

True achievements
13 January 2013
  • Conclusion: I was originally planning on playing it on multiple xboxs at different locations, but soon realized that this was not an option unless I wanted two completely different sets of stats. Overall it was worth the play. It was a bit expensive at $15, but not entirely unreasonable. The puzzles made me think and the platforming made me frustrated. If you were a fan of Portal, you would probably enjoy this.

29 August 2012
  • Conclusion: It doesn’t take a lot for a game to work. Sometimes a single conceit can help catapult a game to the levels cult status as a result of its ingenuity or originality. That was the case with Valve’s Portal and its physics-bending gun, and Quantum Conundrum attempts to replicate that success.
  • Pros: Mind-bending puzzles that test your ingenuity, An entertaining commentary provided by John de Lancie as the inimitable Professor Fitz Quadwrangle
  • Cons: Frustrating platforming detracts from satisfying puzzle elements more often than we’d like, Graphics are gorgeous, but get repetitive pretty quickly

Quantum Conundrum Xbox 360 Review

Console Obsession
30 July 2012
  • Excerpt: The Portal series is an inventive first person puzzle game with humorous dialogue, and, well, Quantum Conundrum is also an inventive first person puzzle game with humorous dialogue. Quantum Conundrum is actually the brainchild of Portal co-creator Kim Swift, and, while it has its similarities with that very game, it’s also something very different.

Quantum Conundrum

Defunct Games
26 July 2012
  • Summary: Quantum Conundrum is about as close as you can get to ripping off Portal without Valve contacting their lawyers. Some of the puzzles are fun, but the game ultimately devolves into nothing more than platform hopping. The moments of brilliance cannot make up for some truly awful writing and an anticlimactic ending! This product was submitted by the publisher for review. As a rule, Defunct Games does not review games we spent money on.

  • Excerpt: Console-owning Portal 2 fans have been cursed, as that amazing game has no sequel or DLC in sight. Fortunately, we now have Quantum Conundrum , an Xbox Live Arcade first-person adventure that (mostly) evokes Portal ’s brain-bending puzzles and humorous overtones. Much like Valve’s masterpiece, you play as a voiceless character making your way through a series of obstacle-filled rooms with the help of an environment-altering device and an omniscient guide providing...
  • Pros: + Captures the spirit of Portal almost perfectly with clever puzzles and a witty guide., + Between the mansion, its paintings, and the adorable Ike, you’ll think you stepped into a Pixar movie.
  • Cons: ? Can you resist looking up puzzle solutions on YouTube?

Quantum Conundrum

Game Over Online
6 July 2012
  • Excerpt: The Good : Fresh physics-base puzzle action The Bad : Overlaid by fairly drab plotline The Ugly : And occasionally punctuated by puzzles requiring a frustrating level of twitch reflexes. From the lead designer of Portal, comes a game that is not Portal. Quantum Conundrum has neither the narrative fire nor the mindbendingly joyous simplicity of Portal, but is a solid first person puzzle platformer with an interesting spin on the laws of physics, or lack thereof.

Quantum Conundrum

6 July 2012
  • Conclusion: The obvious downside is that despite the occasionally interesting puzzle-solving, you still waste too much time on numerous platform-related challenges. That's a shame because that's not what we were promised initially.
  • Pros: You're gonna scratch your head more than a few times to go through some of the challenges, cool soundtrack;
  • Cons: Not a very engaging world, too much emphasis on platform-oriented puzzles.
