Excerpt: Quantum Theory is a lot like Gears of War, and I’m sure its inception came from a group of people trying to figure out a way to capitalize on Epic’s success with its third-person juggernaut. Unfortunately, much of what was taken from Gears either didn’t translate well or doesn’t have nearly the same level of polish. So essentially, this makes Quantum Theory a poor man’s Gears of War.
Excerpt: Not everything about this game is bad; some of the weapons, particularly the first you unlock, feel substantial and deadly. Unfortunately, the lack of creativity in Quantum’s arsenal of weapons leaves us with a group of weapons we’ve used in a myriad of other titles, only now they look different.
Conclusion: However, if you go into it with an open mind you could get a bit of enjoyment out of it. Be prepared for a long grind for the mulltiplayer achievements. If you decide to leave a negative vote, please let it be because you think I didnt write a good review. Please dont let it be because you disagree with my opinions on the game.
Excerpt: If there is one thing that Quantum Theory gets right, and this is digging deep, is that it makes you really appreciate Gears of War . Tecmo Koei’s cover-based shooter is a blatant copy of Epic Games’ cover-based shooter, and a very bad one at that. The developers took a look at Gears of War , decided that this is what gamers like, and proceeded to make their version, which is frustrating and boring.
Excerpt: Quantum Theory is a shooter that evokes strong feelings of deja vu but not for the reasons you might initially think. While there's no denying the game has taken strong visual and gameplay inspiration from the Gears of War series, it's the game's willingness to recycle its own scenarios ad nauseam that really brings about the sense that you've done all of this before.
