Quantum Theory isn't a Gears clone, really

Quantum Theory isn't a Gears clone, really photo



If you've seen Quantum Theory you know it looks a lot like Gears of War. It's a third-person shooter with a cover system, big burly men and heavy armor. But if you've played Quantum Theory then you know that they're at least attempting to do something different. Tecmo Koei boss Yoshiki Sugiyama would really like to stress that now.

"If gamers assume they know what awaits them, if they assume Quantum Theory is going to be just another shooter, they're going to be surprised," said Sugiyama in an interview with CVG.

"While the style may share similar traits of a post-apocalyptic world inhabited by hardened warriors it's the co-operation between our two characters that makes Quantum Theory so unique," he elaborated. "The fact you have to physically manipulate this spectacularly acrobatic partner while launching your own assaults makes for an interesting new dynamic - and of course the battle ground is always changing and shifting. There's a living tower at the heart of this story, a fantastical construction that is never as it seems."

Yea, that is pretty much true from what I've seen, but, man, is Tecmo Koei ever doing a crappy job of showing off the game's unique aspects to the world. Maybe that is why it got delayed until summer.

Review: Helldivers

Mankind has expanded throughout the galaxy, having come together under one government, a "managed" democracy. From the Super Earth homeworld, humanity spreads its message of liberation and freedom to every planet they land upon; the liberation of their natural resources and freedom from human opposition, that is. And if you don't like it, expect them to spread a whole lot of ordinance instead.more
