Q.U.B.E: Director’s Cut Review

Puzzle games always seem to fascinate me, Q.U.B.E: Director’s Cut from Toxic Games wasn’t any different. It combines some clever Portal-like gameplay with fancy white graphics and it will test your patience. 

—Train your mind with some difficult but logical puzzles

Puzzle game fans stop reading and buy the game. I could end my short review with that, but that would be extreme even for LifeisXbox. Q.U.B.E. is a fun but sometimes stressy experience. You always know what to do next but getting there is something else. That’s good for the usual puzzle gamer but for a newcomers it may be a little “mindblowing”  The clever puzzle design and clean white presentation makes Q.U.B.E. into something special. The concept is simple though, you control two gloves that are able to turn, shift or pull out colourful blocks so you can continue your adventure. New gameplay mechanics are slowly introduced so the concept stays fresh for the five hour game experience.


  • Clever puzzle design, you always know what to do.
  • For a puzzle game the graphics and sound are very well done
  • interesting storyline works well for this kind of game
  • Controls couldn’t have been any better


  • Lacks replay value and a little short (4-5 hours)
Score: 73/100
