Excerpt: When I was in college, a favorite pastime had me sitting down and timing my then-girlfriend, now soon-to-be wife, Mary at how fast she could put together a Rubik's Cube. She could usually do it in just under a minute. I've always been one for a good puzzle, and in my mind, there is no puzzle higher in fun or prestige than the Rubik's Cube. So imagine my intrigue and skepticism when Rubik's World showed up for the Wii with its multi-colored "Cubies" in tow.
Excerpt: When I first saw Rubik's World at E3, I was very impressed. Someone should have thought of a video game based on the Rubik's Cube a long time ago. Millions of families have enjoyed the colored cube for years now. The Game Factory decided that this game should include a lot more than just a cube solver, which is complete brilliance. Each of the eight puzzle games included have some form of connection to the Rubik's Cube.
Excerpt: Name: Rubik’s World Genre: Puzzle Platform: Nintendo Wii, Nintendo DS (Reviewed on Wii) Rubik’s World is advertised as a game that takes you inside of a Rubik’s Cube, with different modes and a massive amount of puzzles to complete. It’s an interesting shtick, and a strange license to cling to. Then again, Jenga World Tour was released around this time last year, so I suppose that any property can be turned into a game nowadays.
Conclusion: Rubik’s World is a puzzle fans paradise. With several different games, each ranging between 32 to 44 levels, there is tons of variety to be experience. With multiplayer support, and an immersive experience within “Guide”, there is definitely something for everyone within this package. While the hardcore gamer will probably avoid this title all together, there are still millions of gamers around the world that will be intrigued by this experience.
Excerpt: I remember this one program we had when I was in middle school. We'd go to the computer lab once or twice a month to get on the computers and play a 'game' - it was really just an elaborate way to get us to practice simple math problems. We had to make sure to pay attention to signs and such, though - if we didn't, there was a good chance that the answer would be wrong. Now, you may ask what the motivation was to get better? No, it wasn't for grades.
