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.
Summary: Quantum Theory is a third-person shooter, not all that different from Epic Games’ Gears of War franchise. However, what it lacks in comparison is depth and excitement. This Japanese-developed title definitely knows what it wants to be, but what it actually is, is a shoddy rip-off of better games in the genre.
