    With a serious tone, and a drama laden cast, Q.U.B.E. 2 is simply a cerebral experience. You'll be able to sit down, calm your nerves, and look at things from a different perspective, if only for the time it takes to master a sliding Q.U.B.E. jump.

    Although the story is sometimes a bit vague and predictable, the puzzles are anything but. This game is a looker with a fantastic atmosphere and there is plenty content for you to experience. If you played and loved titles such as Portal or The Talos Principle this title is absolutely recommended.

    QUBE 2 is an outstanding and enjoyable puzzle game that builds upon its predecessor in all the right ways, with a lengthier run-time, more complex puzzles, new elements and gorgeous visuals. Although not as innovative as Portal, QUBE 2 is a step above the rest in both quality and quantity and should not be overlooked.

    Thanks to its derivative nature, Q.U.B.E. 2 never quite escapes the shadow cast by Portal. There’s too many similarities within its core mechanics, structure, and themes for it to stand alone entirely. And yet, once the player accepts that, they will find a compelling puzzler.

    Despite the fact that QUBE 2 improves in each of its sections over the first game, the puzzle genre can offer much more of itself.

    A smart puzzler that builds admirably on the blocks of its predecessor. [May 2018, p.91]

    The sequel builds upon the foundation of the 2014 original in both gameplay and small additions in its artistic strides, but in the end, Q.U.B.E. 2 does little (if anything) with its visuals to warrant this a wholly-expanded sequel, pleasing as its puzzles may be.

    Not the best story but a good ending and really class puzzle design and difficulty curve.
