Rated 7 out of 10 by Use1cc Great for the price point
I agree that if you paid $59.99 for this game you'd be slightly disappointed. Especially if you thought you were buying a GOW copy. GOW it is not. Its more like a $39.99 version of GOW. I paid $16 for QT and I must say its worth every penny. Then again I paid $4 for GOW . Game Stop Rocks!!!
I have over a hundred games and more than half dont get played . However to me they're worth more than 80 cents so I'm not going to sell them back. Quantum theory has the same addictive quality as GOW or COD. Its fun to change guns and kill enemies. This game is not confusing and is just a fun time. The acting sucks and the controls aren't the greatest but C'mon.... For $16 this is a steal!!!
There is so much negative talk about this game which is simply not justified. I bought QT because I'm a GOW fan and I cant wait another 6 months.
Check my recommendations for other price point steals.
Rated 1 out of 10 by D4RKN3551NC4RN473 Don't believe the hype
This game may look and feel like Gears of War, but don't be fooled. It's just another game that is nothing more than a shameless clone that takes the style of game play from an amazing game series (Gears of War) and completely messes it up. Quantum Theory, I'll admit, isn't the worst game I've played (Vampire Rain being the worst ever) but it is down there at the bottom of the barrel. Don't waste your money; there are a lot of better $20 games that you can buy like Gears of War 2 Game of the Year Edition, or you could just put that $20 towards Gears 3 or Bulletstorm.
Rated 7 out of 10 by aprilmayjune game is fun
Ok this game is kinda like gears of war ok man im reading all these people say o it copy gears well yes they did kinda so if u can get past that point and look at the game and story then lets start. Character is savage I thought not to much thought on levels and things to fight but still fun and challenging at times all in all a fun game nice change of game. Story was nice i enjoyed it left me wanting more. So if u are looking for something new id recommend it to a friend it’s a fun game and for the price u cant go wrong.
Rated 10 out of 10 by crystalrosesanders Love it
I posted a comment on it that described how great this game was. First the controllers are similar to GOW, which makes it easier to hop back and forth to this and GOW. Second the graphics are amazing, especially for a $20 game. Third I like the monsters/demons much better than the GOW ones. Plus, having a hot chick by my side and using her as a weapon is pretty cool too. Definitely a great game while you are biding your time for GOW 3.
Rated 8 out of 10 by affliction377 not all that bad
this game is not as bad as some are saying, you cant compare this game to gow because not many games are as great as gears, but the story is interesting and the game reminds me a little bit of resistance, not sure why but overall i enjoyed the game for what it is a good third person shooter with plenty of action, rent it and play it for a while and see if it grows on you!
Rated 6 out of 10 by LordOnion Not as bad as it's rated.
Comparing this game to Gears Of War just isn't fair. GoW is one of the best shooters ever and not many games can compare to it. You have to play this game for what it is. It is a 3rd person shooter in a world ravaged by destruction from war and aliens. It is pretty much your average 3rd person shooter with nothing spectacular or new. But that doesn't make it a bad game. Average games like this come out every year. You can throw the girl Fillena, who is coming with you to attack this living tower. She can stun multiple enemies or do a heavy damage attack on a single enemy. This is not only pretty cool but very affective against larger enemies that are hard to kill. Also, head shots show cut scenes of the head exploding and the body without the head, another positive to the game. One knock and it can be a frustrating one, is when you melee attack it doesn't attack toward the closest enemy but instead the direction you are facing. So if an enemy comes up behind you and you attempt to melee attack them you have to be sure you are facing directly toward them. If not you will starting attacking nothing and you will take damage as the enemy continues its attack on you. I also would like to see a little more weapon diversity. There aren't too many weapons and a few of the ones you can pick up aren't worth even using. I have played a few hours and I still going, so the game isn't too short but I don't know exactly how long. Overall the game is ok and enjoyable. If you are a casual gamer who doesn't get into the story lines to heavily and just enjoys a good shooter then give it a try.

Based on the demo, this honestly is Gears of War 2.5. This is almost an exact replica of GoW; I'll be surprised if Cliffy B doesn't sue somebody, lol. Seriously, I really liked this game, and I think it's a great 'tide-you-over' until GoW3 hits the streets. Online remains to be seen. Graphics are tight, controls are good, guy even sounds like Marucs.
Rated 1 out of 10 by Zmoney A pathetic Gears spin-off with good graphics
In the terms of gameplay, this is among the bottom three in means of entertainment. This game takes Gear's mechanics and adds a few aliens. The aiming system, controls, cover system, and guns look just like the GOW systems. The highpoint is the graphics. They are amazing and detailed. Buy GOW and forget this.
Rated 2 out of 10 by TonyHawk This game is god awful

Rated 0 out of 10 by TOOL LOOKS GREAT!
I really like the way that this game looks. It does resemble Gears, but at the same token it does have its own look. The only thing I am worried about is I hope you don't have to do a whole lot of co-op with the female character. It should be mostly just him and you should be able to pass the game with out her.
