Love At First Contact
HIGH The view from the glass-floored space station lounge.
LOW The way the game cheats to hide its big secret.
WTF I guessed the ending roughly 90 seconds into the opening movie.
When I wrapped up the original Q.U.B.E., I didn’t see where a sequel could go. There was a giant cube, it was going to destroy the earth, some heroic astronauts put a stop to it via an elaborate series of jumping and physics puzzles, roll credits.
I massively underestimated the developers, because it turns out that there’s a huge amount of story left to tell,and Q.U.B.E. 2 outdoes its predecessor in every possible way.
Welcome to This Is Not A Review. In these articles we discuss general impressions, ideas and thoughts on any given game, but as the title implies, it’s not a review. Instead, it’s an exercise in offering a quick recommendation (or dismissal) after spending enough time to grasp the ideas and gameplay of a thing without necessarily playing it from A to Z.
