Many years have passed since the world war inflicted catastrophic damage on the human race, leaving only a few survivors. In their new community "Cocoon," life has been threatened by a black material called Erosion, creating a post-apocalyptic environment. Surviving humans recruit a militia to conquer the Erosion and set out to take down the evil, "Living Tower". Arriving at the scene is the stalwart warrior Syd, whose only intentions are to destroy the Tower. He meets the beautiful and mysterious Fillena as they both ascend to the top in their search for answers. The erosion of the Tower intensifies as the players climb up through the moving landform.

Quantum Theory

Synopsis
Quantum Theory is a futuristic third-person shooter starring a hulking, battle-scarred soldier named Syd and a lithe warrior named Filena. Together they will fight for the survival of the human race, as a deadly material known as Erosion makes its way across the post-apocalyptic land, infecting everything in its reach. The source of the Erosion appears to be emanating from a "living" tower, so the heroes vow to destroy it no matter what the cost. Quantum Theory is notable for featuring a shapeshifting battlefield that will create obstacles or hazards in real-time. Players will take control of Syd, with Filena joining the action as a computer-controlled teammate. The duo can perform combos and various other actions together, allowing players to combine forces to defeat giant boss characters and other alien-like enemies. Online support is also included in four distinct play modes.

Features:

  • Shape-Shifting Battlefield: Navigate through a dark fantasy world where the intense battleground surprises you with new and challenging obstacles by changing its form in real-time
  • Two-Character Combination Actions: Syd and Filena perform actions as a pair—in  some instances, that is the only way to overcome hurdles.
  • Strategically perform combos for a more powerful, fierce attack against colossal enemies
  • Online Play: Continue your adventure with your friends in Team Battle and Battle
  • Royale modes
  • Aesthetically Pleasing Gameplay Environment: Radiant colors and the mixture of organic elements complements both action and technology

Maybe I'm easily entertained, maybe I'm glutton for punishment, but I was strangely drawn to this game and found it quite enjoyable much like another supposedly 'bad' game that I like ShellShock 2. I have not played the game that is mentioned in every other review of Quantum Theory and that is Gears of War. However, after laying Quantum Theory, I went out and bought Gears of War triple pack and hope to play it in the near future.

Quantum Theory plays like a conglomeration of the old and new. Having not played GOW, elements of the game reminde me of a diverse set of games anywhere from Uncharted to Doom. Uncharted due to the often imitated cover mechanics (but lacking the sophisticated exploration mechanics) and Doom because of the demon type enemies that can take a licking before dying, as well as the pattern based AI in the larger enemies.

The beginning of the game introduces you to your future partner Filena and your combo attack with her that is one of the the most powerful attacks in the game. After this glimpse of the future you are thrown into a militia squad in a post apocalyptic earth on your way to forcibly enter and destroy a tower that is responsible for the mutation of people into evil monsters.

The story of Quantum Theory is both simplistic and confusing at the same time. It's not bad, and there is a lot of lore of the world to uncover, it is just explained in a very indirect and disjunct manner. The game goes back and forth in time in several instances in an effort try to explain the characters but it can be jarring. Also, your companion, Filena seems to come and go at times and it is not always well explained why she is with you in some parts and not with you at other times.

The controls in the game are often criticized.

The four star rating is for a purchase of thirty dollars or less. This game is not a full price purchase.

First things first, as I said above if you can find this game for thirty dollars or less and are a fan of Gears of War you will enjoy Quantum Theory. Yes this game borrows many elements from Gears, which is no big secret however as the saying states, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. You shouldn't play this game for what it's not (i.e. Gears of War) but more for what it is, which is a pretty decent third person duck and cover action title. Being a fan of Gears myself, I find Quantum Theory to be some what of a love letter to Gears and that's ok with me because if you're going to make a game in that genre why not look to the top dog for inspiration. It's as if trying to compare an NFL team with a college team, sure they're both playing the same game and using the same equipment but obviously the pros will win out in the long run.

Quantum Theory is by no means a great game; it does have its short comings. The controls are a little off but manageable, the camera can be some what hectic at times and the graphics are mediocre at best. The story has an interesting start but never really develops into anything special; obviously they won't be winning any awards for best screen play anytime soon. In all fairness though I didn't really expect a great story with this game, nor was it the reason I bought it. You will hear a lot of cheesy 80's action movie cliché lines like "splat" after Syd kills something, which makes Syd seem like his body aged but his mind is still in middle school. Finally the AI, your companions are horrible at best, not too helpful. Try watching them; it looks as if they're square dancing on the battle field.

This game is way too hard. Man, is it hard! I even set the difficulty to easy, but it is still pretty hard. In one battle, it took me an hour+ to beat. The enemies spawn like crazy. They also take forever to take out in the first place. Many of the other battles have to be replayed again and again. There a lot of cheap deaths, like when the floor gives way with no notice.

Graphics and sound were pretty good, and the sci-fi weapons are cool. The artwork for the monsters is pretty cool. The game can be played. The shooting is hard because the reticule is small and enemies always dodge. When you do hit a target, the enemy staggers, so your next few shots miss. The AI is decent enough to make you pay if you're not careful.

I'd say this game scores 3.4 out of 5, rounded up because of others who did not try hard enough.

Quantum Theory is a rough game, and you will die often. It is satisfying when you eventually win, you just have to stick with it.

I beat this game today and had a great time! I think my dad will really enjoy it too when he plays it. The whole game probably took around 15 hours, and it didn't feel too short or too long.

My absolute favorite part was the ambience. The environments are gorgeous and colorful, and range from starkly beautiful to distorted and hellish. Throughout the whole tower there's a wealth of color themes, architectural styles, room layouts and such, but it still feels very cohesive. I thought the "constantly changing" aspect of the level design would be lame or ugly or badly executed or something, but instead it transformed spaces in totally bizarre ways and made fights twistedly chaotic.

The gameplay itself is pretty fun. I'm not much for the whole sit-behind-cover-and-shoot-other-guys-behind-cover thing, but there's a lot of weapons and you're afforded a lot of playstyle flexibility. For example, there's a gun that gives your melee attack extra strength and better coverage - use it and you can even take the brawler approach (I did, for a stage or two). The combo attack girl, who travels with you for about half the game, gives you a couple extra moves (melee and ranged) which, if used appropriately, are very effective. The controls are also well thought out and the character control is simple and fluid.

I know a lot of reviews complained about the platforming/climbing. There are only one or two areas in the game that I really had problems with, and I think I could do them better now. During these sequences, a "press jump" icon will appear. The icon does not mean that you should press jump, it means that you /can/ press jump. You still have to orient yourself correctly and make sure there's something to jump to. Leaps of faith do not go rewarded!
