Quantum Conundrum is about as close as you can get to ripping off Portal without Valve contacting their lawyers. Some of the puzzles are fun, but the game ultimately devolves into nothing more than platform hopping. The moments of brilliance cannot make up for some truly awful writing and an anticlimactic ending!

With a few frustrating puzzles, some unclear solutions, and no cooperative play, Quantum Conundrum isn’t quite as polished as Portal 2 — but it’s a very close homage at a fraction of the price. If you’ve been aching for more drops from Valve, this game will satisfy your quandary.
Overall, I cannot recommend this game enough. The style, colorful world, and fun yet frustrating puzzles make up a wonderful summer game experience. The main game is a little bit on the short side, but there are collectables to find and target times to hit for the puzzle rooms, so there is plenty to do once you finish the core game. It has its problems, and again I hate always comparing games to similar ones, but if you had a good time with Portal, there is no reason why you shouldn’t drop the fifteen dollars and experience the fun that is Quantum Conundrum.

The ambition is worthwhile on the whole, however, and if you'll frequently throw down the pad in fury, you'll just as frequently snatch it up again for another try. Beyond the wonky platforming, the only thing which holds Quantum Conundrum short of its inspiration's status is a too-comfortable script. There's none of Portal's black-hearted intertwining of premise and design principles, and while he's sharp enough to puncture preconceptions about kid-friendly content, the Professor is no GLaDOS. You'll forgive that shortage of wit, however, once the furniture starts to fly.

Med det sagt så ska man inte låta dessa mindre brister skrämma iväg en från Quantum Conundrums knasiga värld. Speciellt inte om man är en pusseljunkie och gillade Portal. För att vara ett nedladdningsbart spel finns det mycket att se här, och prislappen är även den lättöverkomlig. Nu hoppas jag att utvecklarna fortsätter att satsa på den där spelserien, så att de kan åtgärda problemen och bjuda oss på ännu fler dimensioner. För i spelens värld är allting möjligt, och med Quantum Conundrum har Airtight Games kommer en god bit på vägen att leverera någonting väldigt fantastiskt.
Quantum Conundrum is dan ook een hele goede game geworden. Het dimensie concept is origineel en werkt goed. De puzzels zijn goed afgestemd op de verschillende dimensies en zijn leuk om te volbrengen. Quadwrangle geeft grappig commentaar tijdens het spelen en wisselt de rustige deuntjes van de game goed af. Ook de stijl van de game zit goed in elkaar en afgezien van de wat kale muren is hier niets op aan te merken. Het enige waarop de game kan worden aangesproken is zijn besturing. Deze is namelijk ietwat gevoelig en had wat aangepast moeten worden. Desalniettemin is Quantum Conundrum een super leuke game geworden waarin je weer lekker kunt puzzelen.
Se são fascinados por quebra-cabeças e acreditam que a Valve poderia dar mais Portal aos fãs ou que simplesmente os videojogos podem ser muito mais do que sangue, tiros e pontapés na bola, talvez Quantum Conundrum seja mesmo do que precisam. É um produto que pode ser relaxante pela sua postura diferente mas que nos engana pois é desafiante e pode até mesmo ser enervante. O ritmo crescente da complexidade é bem gerido e a devida curva de aprendizagem está tão bem delineada que o jogador vai-se sentir premiado a todo o momento, apesar de alguns pontos mais fracos.
„Quantum Conundrum“ erinnert stark an „Portal“, erreicht dessen Charme und Witz aber nie. Nichtsdestotrotz sollten es sich „Chell“-Fans in der Wartezeit auf einen möglichen dritten „Portal“-Teil nicht entgehen lassen, diesen neuen Ansatz auszuprobieren. Dimensionen überschreitender Rätselspaß garantiert!
But the occasional frustration that results from these weaker moments isn't enough to derail Quantum Conundrum. The rewarding sense of experimentation and problem-solving that dominates this quest makes putting up with its foibles worthwhile, and the twisting, puzzling halls of Quadwrangle Manor are substantial enough to justify the 1200-point ($15) price of admission. It doesn't always play to its strengths, but the clever ideas and confounding brainteasers of Quantum Conundrum make it a mostly enjoyable journey into the fourth, fifth, sixth, and seventh dimensions.

If you’re one for puzzle games and enjoyed Portal, Quantum Conundrum will be right up your alley, but the complexity of the puzzles later on in the game may deter the average gamer. This said, whichever category you fit into, Quantum Conundrum will surely entertain you for its 1200 MSP price tag and if you’re stuck to find something to play, it is well worth the pickup.
Pas facile de se faire une place au soleil quand on est un puzzle-game en vue subjective, considérant l'ombre que peut faire un certain Portal. Et pourtant, sans renier un héritage certain dans sa forme et dans sa progression, Quantum Conundrum parvient à se démarquer avec une ambiance radicalement différente et un système de jeu qui lui est propre. On pourra regretter des phases trop simples encerclant des moments bien exigeants et quelques automatismes trop systématiques, mais dans l'ensemble, la traversée du manoir Quadwrangle reste une expérience bien fun proposée de surcroît à petit prix.
Level 7
Quantum Conundrum har verkligen mycket gemensamt med Portal. Och även om det inte riktigt når upp till dess höjder, mycket på grund av att handling, manus och originalitet inte håller samma klass, så rekommenderas det verkligen för de som fallit för pussel i förstapersonsvy.
Worth Playing
Taken in small doses, any given level in Quantum Conundrum can be a fun diversion. As a whole, it fails to become more than a sum of its parts. The concept may be inspired and ambitious, but the repetitive puzzle rooms and twitchy platform controls make Quantum Conundrum feel rough around the edges.
