Q.U.B.E. 2 is an interesting and captivating first-person puzzle game which is more than likely to capture the players' attention thanks to its interesting and appealing puzzles. If the way the puzzles are approached and the game's visuals are something worthy of praise, it is also true that Q.U.B.E. 2 exhibits some technical issues when it comes to its framerate though this is not a problem that will pose significant obstacles to the experience.

Q.U.B.E. 2 is a welcome addition to the puzzle genre but is not without its technical hiccups on the Switch. While it struggles occasionally under the hood, if you're willing to look past these shortcomings, there's a fun game with its fair share of brain-bending challenges for die-hard puzzle fiends.

Q.U.B.E. 2 is a worthy successor to the previous game, building upon the established mechanics and basics of an exemplary puzzle-solving experience.

Despite improvements the debt to Portal cannot be fully repaid in this cleverly-constructed by staid first person puzzler.

Not helped by technical glitches and cumbersome controls, Q.U.B.E. 2 boxes itself in with tedious gameplay and a sluggish pace.

I can't remember the last time I played a puzzle game with so many unique elements to keep track of, and it's definitely rare that I've played a game with so many puzzles that are so consistently well-designed. Out of the 80+ puzzles, I wouldn't say a single one was bad, and none of them were so obtuse that I needed to give up and find a solution online—although some definitely stumped me for a while. If a patch or two comes out to fix the performance problems in the late game, then picking this up will be a no-brainer.

Q.U.B.E. 2 is an accomplished first-person physics puzzler that learns a number of wise lessons from Portal in terms of mechanics and world building. The puzzles are smartly executed with a well-judged learning curve, while the story adds a welcome dose of context and intrigue to proceedings. Well-travelled gamers will instantly recognise its influences, but there's nothing else quite like Q.U.B.E. 2 on Switch.

A solid Puzzle game with great design, though lacking the length for the price it asks. It’s fun for a playthrough but over too quickly.

Q.U.B.E. 2 adds much to the genre, be it the gravitational power from the gloves or the puzzle mechanics. Unfortunately, though, a lot of potential is wasted, since it has a mediocre story that leaves many blank spaces and its puzzles are very easy — and therefore monotonous — most of the time.

Q.U.B.E. 2 is an interesting puzzler with tight mechanics that do a great job at challenging gamers, especially later on. It consistently introduces new elements that add a new aspect of strategy, and these elements cohesively build on top of each other, making for some delightfully satisfying and varied levels. It's a shame that the first half of the game is a bit of a slog, but even then this is still a very solid puzzler that any fan of this genre should consider.
