When you usually think about Quantum Theory, the first thing that pops into your head is a bunch of university post-grad students musing over the various sciences of physics and matter. In this game, instead of scientific equations, your enemies are huge hulking creatures that have been created by a dark material known as 'Erosion'.

So it makes sense that instead of budding scientists, you play as hunched beefcakes with powerful machine guns that hope to save humanity as they know it. The lead beefcake in this instance is a chap called Syd, who meets a beautiful warrior known as Filena during an ascension of the plagued, evil “Living Tower” which is linked to the Erosion.

The Tower – along with the Erosion – threatens the very survival of mankind in a post-apocalyptic world. Humanity's last stand, a community known as “Cocoon”, is on the brink of destruction by these black, murky beasts. And your job, ultimately, is to take out any threats you find and take out the Tower. Not easy when you have to deal with shape-shifting battlefields and unpredictable enemies that make the most of the moving landform.

Quantum Theory has a lengthy single-player campaign, along with four modes of online multiplayer to enjoy with friends – all supported by voice chat to keep the excitement alive.
