Sci-fi puzzling fun
This updated version of the original Q.U.B.E. adds in a few new elements, including a stronger narrative, to make what was already a fine game into something a bit more intriguing. The basic concept of the game remains unchanged, with the player finding themselves in a sterile sci-fi environment that instantly reminds you of Portal's testing chambers. The game plays out in first person, as you explore your surroundings and solve the numerous puzzles which form the core experience. These revolve around manipulating different colored cubes, each of which have their own unique properties and which must be combined in order to progress. Along with the cubes, there are also various buttons and other elements and together they have effects like launching the player into the air, creating bridges or turning the environment 90 degrees. This Director's Cut gives the game a story, with the player now in control of an astronaut and with the environment being an alien cube heading to Earth, making it your job to find out exactly what it is. There is also voice acting, a few new puzzles and some extra DLC. If you haven't played the base game, and are curious about the idea, then this is the version to go for, unless you're really not bothered about the story. The core concept of the game is intriguing and the puzzling is mostly quite enjoyable and challenging, but there is something strangely lacking here. Although exploration and puzzle solving is satisfying, the whole thing just feels a little empty and pointless but if you like things abstract and unusual, take a look here.
