Now Playing: Quantum Break - Review

Quantum Break is breaking records. The time-bending Xbox One and PC game not only raced to the top of the UK sales charts for its launch week, but it's now become the fastest-selling Microsoft-published new IP this console generation in the region. This is according to tweets today from Microsoft's Aaron Greenberg.

He confirms it's the "best-selling new franchise or IP we have published." This puts it ahead of others like Sunset Overdrive and Ryse: Son of Rome, according to Eurogamer.

"We're delighted that Quantum Break has been so well received by fans and critics," Xbox Studios' Jon Edney said in a statement. "The game has already built up a passionate fanbase and we look forward to seeing and hearing about their experiences in Riverport."

In the UK, Quantum Break became the first Microsoft-published game to reach the top of the UK sales chart since Halo 5: Guardians was released in November 2015.

Quantum Break received a score of 6 in GameSpot's review.

"Quantum Break can be an interesting ride at times," said Peter Brown. "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."
