Content Rating: Everyone
You are Amelia Cross, a stranded archaeologist who has mysteriously awoken among the sand swept ruins of an ancient alien landscape. Together with the distant help of another survivor, Commander Emma Sutcliffe, you must traverse and manipulate the structure of this forgotten world to find a way back home. Waking up wearing a strange suit with attached gloves, you have no prior knowledge on how you came to be in this environment. Awaiting you is a maze-like monolith, a structure that you must navigate, solving mind-bending puzzles. Use your manipulation gloves to change and adapt the architectural structure in your search to rendezvous with another survivor, finding a way off the planet. As you explore and solve puzzles to progress, thought-provoking questions about your true purpose and the origins of the structure you are navigating will need to be considered, forcing you to come to terms with a devastating truth that will shake your world.

Aside from trying to look damn nice while you’re trucking along, there’s nothing that shows improvement from the original’s fantastic blueprint. The puzzles are standard for far too long, the solutions are obvious, and the story is overbearing instead of enjoyable. It all adds up to Q.U.B.E. 2 being an undercooked sequel, one that was probably unnecessary in the first place.
Having not played the first game, I had no idea what to really expect from QUBE 2, but I was very pleasantly surprised. Puzzle games can get repetitive by their very nature, but the pacing and introduction of new elements here was perfectly managed to keep everything continuously feeling fresh. Every level offers a new challenge, and just when you think you’ve got the hang of everything, QUBE 2 will throw something new at you.
Q.U.B.E. 2 is thought provoking, well designed, and intriguing. Unfortunately, however, issues with the framerate and some texture problems persist throughout. With that to the side, this is a wonderfully crafted puzzle adventure that maintains its innovation and unique concept from beginning to end.
