samskivert: Cubivore – GameCube (3)

02 January 2003

Ranks up with Space Station Silicon Valley as one of the most peculiar game concepts I’ve ever come across. Sets the bar for best translation of a Japanese game into English with the seemingly unenedless supply of expertly translated poetry that is recited to you by your Cubivore alter-ego throughout the game. The gameplay is reasonably fun and though I wasn’t motivated to play through a second time and achieve the status of King Cubivore, I certainly enjoyed the first go ’round.
