One thought does permeate throughout Q.U.B.E. though, and it chimes with the problems of familiarity. Of course, the comparison to Portal immediately draws upon this, but standing QUBEback from the game it seems that Q.U.B.E. revisits the same puzzles from time to time with just a change in aesthetics for variation. This is not too much of a problem as the developers have ensured that each puzzle requires a new solution and have constructed a learning curve that is as rewarding as it is challenging. Still, this underlying thought prevents the game from ever truly surprising you as much you want it to. It’s clear that a lot of love has gone into Q.U.B.E., making for a gratifyingly mature experience. It’s definitely a game worth checking out, especially if you enjoy challenging puzzles and intelligent, stylish design.
