Quantum Break vs Control – The Definitive Comparison

Quantum Break vs Control

Hi guys! Today I will talk about Quantum Break and Control. I will do a comparison between them and I will let you be the judge of which game is better. First I will talk about the storyline of those 2 games, then I will talk about the difference or similarities in their gameplay, and lastly, I will compare the visuals and tell you my final thoughts. Now let’s begin.


Both games have interesting stories and will surely keep you entertained.

Quantum Break’s story is easier to understand, while Control’s story requires some more effort to understand and it still has a lot of mysteries. You will never figure out completely what is going on in Control but some may say they like it more like that.

The important thing is that both games have good stories so whatever you choose, you will surely enjoy its story.


Both games are made by the same developer and give the players some unique abilities that you don’t see often in games.

The main difference between these two games are the abilities that they give the players.

Quantum Break gives you the ability to manipulate time while Control gives you the ability of telekinesis.

Both are very interesting but I believe telekinesis is a little more fun in the way it is implemented in the game. Throwing objects at your enemies with a destructible environment and seeing them fly from the impact is extremely entertaining.

Quantum Breaks abilities to manipulate time are very fun too. From the ability to run while others are in slow motion to time shield ability and also the ability to stop time.

But enough of the abilities. Let’s talk about the weapons you can use in both games.

Quantum break has different guns for you to use though there isn’t much variety in the number of guns you can use and Control give you a single weapon but it has a lot of different forms and you can upgrade it to do different things.

An aspect that both games have problems with is the variety of the enemies they have. Both games don’t offer a lot of variety when it comes to enemies and you often feel you face the same kinds of enemies.

Some other problems that both games have(though this is a personal preference and not everyone likes the same things) are the amount of content and difficulty.

Both games have around 11 hours of story mode and Control has a few DLC so it has a little more content than Quantum Break. Also, the games for me aren’t challenging(though I compare the difficulty to games like Sekiro and Dark Souls).

If you want the game that you play to be very challenging then you will be disappointed by both games.

As for replayability. I never felt the need to play any of these games a second time.


In the visuals department, Quantum Break has an advantage since its a more recent game, but Quantum Break still looks good.

The difference is somewhat noticeable though so if you want above-average graphics then you should pick Control.

As for the customization options, in Control you can change outfits, though the options are limited. In Quantum Break you don’t have that kind of option.

I general Control wins when it comes to visuals.

Final Thoughts

Both games are above average but are far from masterpieces. They are decent and will entertain you for sure so whichever game you choose you will get your money’s worth I believe. Though I have to say that I recommend waiting for sale since I don’t believe they are worth getting at full price.

Finally, I will summarize what I want you to remember from this article. First, both games have amazing stories and I don’t think anyone is better than the other when it comes to the story.

When it comes to gameplay, it comes down to what you prefer, time abilities, or telekinetic abilities. Besides the abilities, the other aspects of the gameplay in both games are pretty much the same.

Finally when it comes to visuals, Control win both in quality of graphics and in the customization.

Personally I believe Control is a better purchase (though remember only get it on sale) since it has more content and better visuals. Though if you prefer Quantum Break it’s a good purchase also(always on sale).

This is it, guys. I hope you found the article informative and that I helped you decide which is the best game for you.
