    "This is a pretty good casual physics puzzle game. I'm a big fan of Portal and Portal 2, but the actual story is limited in content. Sometimes the community chambers are a bit too tough for the frame of mind I'm in, so I start up Quantum Conundrum to relax."

    "I have been getting bored with the game offerings on Steam lately, especially any that involve physics. My friend recommended "Portal 2" and I have been addicted ever since. It is a great puzzle game with an entertaining story that keeps me playing for hours. "

    "I'm a phsyics nut when it comes to just about everything and I Love games that involve it too. I searched a long time but finally came across Kerbal Space Program. It's really addictive but also really hard. You get to create and execute a space program. If that doesn't draw you in, I don't know what will. "

    "Games definitely has an interesting concept, but not enough for me to want to play it more then once. The graphics are ok, but not up to the higher standards I have now. Some people may enjoy this more then me, but not something I continued to play. I will not be returning to this game in the future. "

    "As a physics games portal is the go to game for exactly that. Yes it's more of a puzzle game but most of the puzzles in the game are due to those physics puzzles. You have to learn how objects move and how the portals speed up an object like a portal being placed on the floor. As a total physics and teaching you physics that relate to the real world not so much but it is a very good game that involves physics."

    "I really enjoyed Garry's Mod because I love games that involve physics. I am also familiar with steam and it is compatible. I thought is was extremely nimble game platform that gives you the ability to be creative. There are no rules, I can just be myself and let physics and my creativity build games. "
