    I don't know what a "solid" TPS is. Only TPS games I've ever enjoyed are Wanted and Dark Sector, but that's cause of mix of interesting mechanics plus game setting.

    Quantum Break, it wasn't boring. But it feels way too linear and combat isn't exactly ground-breaking. The only time I actually had fun in-game were when you were trapped in parking areas and had to rely on ability to teleport fast, to take down enemies up close and personal. It was actually fun then. But the game doesn't get any better after that.

    Story and characters were alright. I had more fun in Alan Wake's universe than Quantum's. Quantum feels too generic.

    If I had to rate it, I would give it 5/10.

    Is it gonna have hardcoded 4xMSAA just like Quantum Break did, making it unplayable at 1080p/60FPS with GTX 1060? That was one genius innovation Remedy did.

    Fingers-crossed that the choice of a woman main-character is isn't part of an SJW-agenda! I really want to be able to enjoy a game from Remedy.

    This shit looks as bad as Quantum Break which was a bad as having like, extremely sensitive anal fissures. (Speaking entirely from personal experience.)

    I figure they're re-using a lot of art assets from QD since the publisher 505 Games isn't some Triple-A heavyweight that can put some serious dough on the table. So expect a lot of repetitive gameplay, repetitive level design and very few, fully written NPCs. This can be a good or a bad thing, depending on the creative use behind it... Although to be honest I expect this to be another mediocre fire-and-forget 7 hours romp.

    This early build looks nice... Not as overdone with filters and shaders.

    Hasn't Remedy figured everyone stopped doing the 'generic story-driven cinematic shooter BUT WITH SUPERPOWERS' shtick since 2013? Open world is all the rage nowadays.

    It seems the game has a PS4 exclusive expansion pass.
