Quan­tum Break ( XBOX ONE)

What would you do if you had the power to ma­nip­u­late time? Well, I’d thank the heav­ens ev­ery day — and save the world when need be.

That’s ex­actly what you do as Jack Joyce in Quan­tum Break from Rem­edy En­ter­tain­ment and Mi­crosoft Stu­dios. The Xbox One- exclusive third- per­son shooter game is sure to make time fly.

The sto­ry­line is pretty in­ter­est­ing: Jack’s best friend, Paul Serene, gets his time machine ex­per­i­ment all wrong, thereby bless­ing — or curs­ing — both of them with “chronon ra­di­a­tion”, which gives them time- based abil­i­ties. Paul, with a higher dose of chronon ra­di­a­tion, can see into the fu­ture, which he uses be­fore he makes key de­ci­sions. Turns out that Paul, who is also the boss at Monarch So­lu­tions, has a rather sin­is­ter plan to bring about the “End of Time”. You, as Jack, must stop him.

The con­trols are that of your typ­i­cal third- per­son shooter game, but the real high­lights are your time- based abil­i­ties, such as stop­ping bul­lets ( and re­turn­ing them), dash­ing to evade en­e­mies and, of course, stop­ping time.

The story gets more in­trigu­ing as it goes on. You’ll prob­a­bly feel the anx­i­ety flow when you lit­er­ally race against time — both for­ward and back­ward — to rec­tify things, from sav­ing Jack’s es­tranged brother Will to help­ing your ap­par­ent sweet­heart Beth Wilder! We al­ready can’t wait for a se­quel. ( Dh269; 9/ 10)
