Q*Bert rebooted is an unfortunate product of its time, even with the adjustments made to bring it kicking and screaming in to 2016 it still feels like a shallow experience that's short on modes. It also has one of the worst names for a game in existence, ever.

It's easy to recommend Q*Bert: Rebooted to both returning fans and new ones alike. The PlayStation release allows for choice of play either in its classic mode or the more modern version for those who want something a little easier on the eyes. The additional challenges in the Rebooted mode do provide some extra game time, but if you're looking for something a little deeper this isn't quite it. Q*Bert: Rebooted may be a simple game from another era, but its pick-up and play nature can certainly still be relevant today.

There are some good ideas in this modern interpretation of Q*Bert, and we love that the original's included as part of the package, but iffy controls undermine the experience. It's a quaint little curio for fans of arcade games, then, but it's not exactly a must have.

Whatever today's equivalent is to Q*bert's quarter-eating arcade competitors would be time better spent for all but those that speak fluent Qbertese.

The game, despite its problems, can be fun in small doses and certainly provides plenty of old school challenge.

Hardcore fanatics may still be somewhat amused , but those looking for an entertaining game that harkens back to the retro era while at the same time providing some modern fun should jump well out of the way.

Q*Bert Rebooted is definitely one character that deserved to be rebooted into today's gaming world, but while it does retain many of the classic Q*Bert elements, spotty controls and inexcusably bad load times make the game extremely mediocre.

An effective if not particularly ambitious or polished reboot of an arcade classic, Q*Bert Rebooted is as accessible as the franchise has ever been but offers little in the way of significant new additions to keep players hooked in the long term and remains hobbled by a lack of leaderboards.

Q*bert Rebooted is an interesting update to a retro arcade classic.

It will score a lot of points for the sake of nostalgia, but in all honesty the reboot does nothing important that the original didn't do better, 34 years ago.

Q*Bert Rebooted isn't without potential; it has a lot of content and some of the new ideas are solid. Unfortunately, any potential is squandered by an overlong campaign and a control scheme that often feels broken. Not being able to reliably move in diagonal directions makes certain levels near impossible. Q*Bert deserves better.

Q*bert Rebooted's Xbox One version is marginally better than the original game - particularly when it comes to the new EDM soundtrack - but it still feels like a cheap mobile title meant to cash in on Q*bert's appearance in "Pixels."

Sadly, Q*bert REBOOTED is a retro revival gone wrong.

Q*bert: Rebooted will leave you struggling with awful controls when you're not nodding off to the tedium.

Nothing redeems this game. It's ugly as sin, it fails to understand what made the original classic compelling and though it includes the original classic, it is a neutered version of it. I love Q*Bert. I downloaded this thing without a second thought. I am angry at the injustice that has been inflicted on the cute lil guy.
