"Roughly one week after launch" The Quiet Man is getting an update that will add audio into the mix, and thus, context. Maybe it'll be the most subversive, Molyneux-esque patch in the history of gaming. For now, Square Enix is charging $14.99 for a ticket to ride and I can safely say that you can miss this train.
There’s nothing else quite like The Quiet Man, and there’s a reason for that. The blend of FMV and interactive combat sequences fails on every level with an unfathomable plot that raises far more questions than it answers, and encounters that fail to explain themselves and do little to engage. The Quiet Man is the most baffling release of 2018, to the point where a post-mortem investigation into its sheer existence sounds so much more exciting than this bizarre and convoluted comedy sketch.
With all that though, part of me still wants to recommend The Quiet Man. The truly awful state that the game is in right now means it just about falls into the “so bad, it’s good” category, making it decent fodder for you and your friends to rip into during a party. If nothing else, consider it a fairly cheap palette cleanser that’ll make you appreciate the much better games on the market.
