Q*bert REBOOTED: The XBOX One @!#?@! Edition review: @!#?@! indeed

Q*bert REBOOTED: The XBOX One @!#?@! Edition is Q*bert. They say it’s “rebooted,” and the description includes such hype-quotes as “reimagined” and “state of the art 3D gameplay,” but really, it’s just Q*bert.

That doesn’t mean it’s bad. If you like Q*bert and don’t feel like booting up your Atari 2600, it will certainly give you your fix. If you don’t know about Q*bert — or you’re like me and played it as a kid but had no clue what you were doing — you basically just have to jump on 3D cubes to change their color, all while avoiding myriad obstacles.
