  • Summary: [Downloadable Game] Relive the 80s with this retro arcade hit. Q*bert, the colorful, loveable Noser jumps into High Definition on the PS3. Score points by hopping around the pyramid and changing the cube colors...but keep an eye out for Q*bert's springy nemesis, Coily, and his dastardly friends. [Sony Online Entertainment] Expand

  1. The updated graphics and tilt control support aren't enough to make Q*bert appeal to anyone other than extreme fans, and even those people will find something to be disappointed about.
  2. 50
    Unfortunately, an "hour or two" is all most people will want to spend with Q*bert because of his control problems. I can understand the need to preserve the original game's integrity, but keeping the same joystick hitches 25 years later actually damages its simple-but-fun gameplay design.
  3. Poor controls, lacklustre source material and almost non-existent extras all combine to make this one to avoid unless you have a particularly nostalgic longing for this particular slice of gaming antiquity.
