There’s a reason Cube has only 2½ stars after 5000+ reviews: it’s practically unplayable! You have to admire fernLightning for attempting to put Quake on the iPhone, but this first-person-shooter isn’t even close to being ready for primetime.
When the graphics are running smoothly (usually when there’s nothing to shoot at) control is super difficult… accelerometer movement is way too sensitive and will probably make you hurl if you’re prone to motion sickness. Throw in some bad guys and you can expect the framerate to slow down to an excruciating crawl, and even if the game doesn’t go all laggy on you it’s still pretty much impossible to aim at anything.
Cube would be an impressive game if it weren’t such a pain in the ass to play. Until the movement and lag see some massive improvements, I’ll have to file this under “waste of time”.
