Bad

Horrible Controls and Tedious

You basically go from room to more-or-less identical room hiding behind waist-high walls, shooting endless hordes of identical bad guys. There is no plot, no characters to speak of, and no reason it should be called "Quantum Theory". You need to be 100% precise, even with the grenade launcher, to do any damage. And, as 99% of your rounds will be misses, you run out of ammo pretty much instantly. Part of why you miss so much is that 1) you aim slower than any enemy can walk at a slow pace, much less sprint, and 2) you cannot hit ANY target if it is moving. It's like they borrowed an invincibility star from Super Mario Bros. that wears off whenever they hold still.
And if you get into a smaller-than-average room or corridor, God help you figure out what's actually going on as you face a brick wall while helplessly trying to get the camera to swing around and show you what's beating you to death from behind. I can handle swarms of alien cyborgs, but I cannot defeat The Dreaded Cameraman.
Add to this a complete lack of plot/exposition, totally cookie-cutter weapons, and a cover system that feels like it was designed by an autistic Martian, and you get this steaming pile of whatsit.
The graphics and slow-mo headshots are neat, but beyond this, there is nothing worthwhile about this game.

All and all this game is no masterpiece but its not a bad game either. The graphics are ok no real ohhs or awws. like others have said there is an obvious connection to Gears, plays almost the same. Controls take a min to get use to and the story is ok. Over all I give this game a 6 its a game if you have some extra time or an extra slot on your Q give it a try Its really not that bad! IF your expecting a game of the year contender look somewhere else. But if your a person who just likes to play games because its different why not give it a look

I think the problem with this game is that there are so many great games out right now that being just ok, isnt going to get it anymore. I started this game but didn't finish because I had 2 better games in line. Maybe I'll pick it up again some day if I get really bored.
