why did this game got a bad review or did it?
I watched this and this is unlike anything I have ever seen before.

Yeah, Quantum Break has a very cool and substansive time travel story with amazing visuals.
The gameplay is fun but it's pretty much what you make of it. The game never gives suggestions on combining your powers, but you can.

For a first entry in a new franchise it very underrated.

From what I remember
  • The game had A LOT of technical issues at lauch. 4 years later and it still stutters in cutscenes.
  • Some people didn't like the gameplay. I've seen people struggle with it.
  • People felt forced to watch the show between the chapters.
  • It was a different time then as well with people saying MS was too focused on tv and entertainment experiences.
  • There was barely any sort of marketing for the game.
  • The PC port was quite bad!

Getting to the end of Quantum Break can be an interesting ride at times, but no matter how impressive the combat is, or how great the game looks, there's no getting around the fact that it's driven by a story with limited appeal and hindered by disappointing design decisions.

IGN said: 8.0
Quantum Break is an artistically distinct shooter, with a compelling and malleable plot and excellent performances from its main players in both their digital and live-action forms. While I wish more thought had gone into maintaining the thrill of discovering its time-twisting powers from start to finish, it ultimately didn’t prevent me from thoroughly enjoying Quantum Break’s 10-hour campaign, two times over.

Giant Bomb saidL 4.0
There are a lot of sound ideas in the middle of Quantum Break and, hey, if you're a sucker for goofy time travel hijinks this game has that going for it, too. But those ideas are the only things holding this project together. The moment you look past that heady connective tissue, every single one of Quantum Break's individual elements fall flat.

I know this doesn't look all that impressive but even just this relatively simplistic line took multiple tries. The game is alright but I am thinking I'll like Skater XL more. Guess I'll know soon enough.

How's the music?

I didn't like anything I heard and turned it off eventually and just play my own. There is a weird issue with sound (among other things, game is still early-access) but I don't usually get audio during my replays, or when I do it's super limited to just like background ambiance, very strange.

Definitely digging Skater XL more than session, though they control somewhat similarly there are also substantial differences, but Skater XL so far is just more fleshed out, especially the replay editor works a lot better imo.

I guess he is the only one outside with no mask and everyone is locked in their house due to COVID 19.

Ha, as good a reason as any to explain the empty maps...

The more I play the more I'm learning the intricacies of this game. There is so much nuance & subtleties to the controls & manipulation of the board in this game, from tweaking flicks just that minute amount differently to catching with front or back feet. I've not sat and played for extended period at once, but still manage to learn something new each time. Certainly preferring this game to session from what I've played. It's a pretty bare bones release, but I know they're saying this is just the tip of the iceberg.

A short montage. I disable the music in this game and listen to my own tunes so there is no music to it, editing is a little rough cause I just threw clips together using the upload studio for the first time, haha...

When this game runs well, it's freaking great. Had a great match. Here is a nice double headshot and a pistol kill to hit a 10 kill streak.
