Gaming Nexus: Rubik's World Review

Gaming Nexus writes: "Ah, the Rubik's Cube. That innocent little puzzle that almost every kid has owned, and subsequently gone crazy trying to solve. The twisting, turning 3X3 cube made of cubes can be more maddening to solve for the inexperienced than the perverse "spilled milk" all-white jigsaw puzzle. The Cube has inspired competitions between professional solvers, insane time record videos on Youtube, and the popular Kobayashi Maru solution of disassembling the Cube and putting the pieces back in order. The Rubik's Cube has been a national phenomenon for several decades, so publisher Game Factory thought it would be a good idea to make a game based on the puzzle, and set developer Two Tribes to work making the games. Two Tribes developed two games based on the Cube, one for Wii and DS, and after pitting my gray matter against the DS game I tried my hand at the Wii version.

This brings along a lot of the weaknesses of the DS game, but there are a few changes that improve the overall experience."
