The Quiet Man is 'The Room' of Video Games and a Once-in-a-Generation Trainwreck (Link)
"The Quiet Man is a trainwreck of biblical proportions, and comfortably the worst game of this console generation. Of its two hour run time, I'd estimate about an hour and a half of that is watching people's lips move in silence. Bouts are bad in a way you just don't see in major video game releases these days, jerky slap-fights in tiny rooms where physics dares not tread."
Best Kept on Mute (Link)
"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."
