  • Summary: This game gets compared to Portal, and for good reason. Player is placed in rooms with puzzles and expected to solve it. However, the comparison ends there. Q.U.B.E. has very little charm compared to Portal. Actually... It doesn't have any charm at all. However, the gameplay is very, very good and is what makes the game worth buying. So, don't go into this expecting the next Portal, as you WILL end up disappointed.

  • Summary: Wonderfull game! Our era need more games like this. Simple yet innovative. Nice music. Visually atractive. Quite challenging at some points. And above all that, SMART. Worth every single cent. Amused me in every single puzzle, specially the ones in the dark. Surprising ending too. Some people think that the game is crappy for the lack story but in my opinion one thing that make this game so good is exactly the lack of it.

  • Summary: Q.U.B.E is a first-person puzzle game that tries very hard to be Portal. It's a decent game, but it falls far short of Portal's glory. The decision to not incude any instructions is interesting. I was able to figure everything out after a while, but there are many moving parts and it's easy to forget which parts do what. Portal was elegant. Portals were the solution to every problem.

  • Summary: This is a very interesting puzzle game. I just beat it, and let me say, it HAD THE POTENTIAL to be as great as Portal or Portal 2. What held it back? Lack of story explanation. Some people would count that as a plus, but it makes you feel empty after you beat it. The game was very fun, but very nail rippingly difficult at times. Sometimes I knew EXACTLY how to solve a puzzle, but you have to be so PRECISE to solve it, it's ridiculous.

  • Summary: Too short. Too simple. Stole a lot from Portal, but didn't have any of the intrigue or humor. $15 for 3 hours of bland gameplay? No thanks. If this was $10 cheaper, I'd give it a 5/10.

  • Summary: Interesting game, but i get the feeling its not living to its potential. the puzzles are fun but they are too separated. one moment you are introduced to dark areas and after solving a few puzzles your never encounter it again. the game could have been better if they at least tried to mix some mechanics. still a nice game if you like environment puzzles.

  • Summary: A very good puzzle game indeed. Superficially there are some resemblances of this game to Portal series. However, the mechanics of this puzzle game is significantly different from that of Portal games. In this game you don't generate portals. Instead you are supposed to touch and to activate varous colored cubes which have different functions.

  • Summary: It's portal, without being a portal. Harder puzzles then portal and portal like enviroments but without the portals. this game is so portal that got it's own awesomeness. like glowing gloves and... qubes.

  • Summary: fairly good game that is enjoyable. Some will deem it disappointing because it doesnt have witty narrative writing like portal but that doesnt appear to be its purpose. Sure this would make it a more enjoyable experience but it only ever attempts to be a puzzle game. Those looking for a portal 2 ripoff should look elsewhere. recommended for people who like to chill and do a few first person puzzlers.

  • Summary: I've already written a full review of this game on Nave360.com so here's a brief summary on whats good and bad. It's a challenging game, and acts like portal in some ways, but is rather short just like Portal. The game is also very expensive for just 3-4 hours of gameplay (perhaps less time depending on how clever you are). Each sector adds something new which is great, but there's not much story in the game. Also when I played, the achievements were bugged.
