    I still don't know what the plot is.

    Q*Bert is a popular puzzle/action game that came out in the 80's, and managed to keep it's popularity through much of the 90's as well. In Q*bert, the player maneuvers the character, Q*Bert, around an isometric pyramid-... Read Full Review

    Sound: The voice acting and translation of your "friendlies"

    Sound: The voice acting and translation of your "friendlies" (on easy mode) to the chatter of the PMC, Frogs and "Beauties" is absolutely mind boggling. Its like listening to that of a movie. Its very realistic and enter... Read Full Review

    Updated graphics and more levels, but otherwise it's nothing different from the original.

    If you loved the original QBert, you like this one. But it doesn't really offer anything unique. The 'adventure' option just leads you to a bunch of different QBert style pyramids, which you have to complete one at a t... Read Full Review

    I hate Q*Bert. I hate color changing blocks. I hate this game.

    I hate Q*Bert. I hate color changing blocks. I hate this game. The concept is simple. You are Q*Bert (and you suck) and you jump on blocks and they turn colors and life is grand. However, the game is not fun, it's ... Read Full Review

    Great fun

    The Good: good controls, fun gameplay, fun puzzles, fun vs. The Bad: a bit basic Full review: Q*Bert is definitely underappreciated. It may be a bit basic but it works fine. It is really fun, especially with anothe... Read Full Review

    This is a bare-bones, lazy port of an 80's classic arcade game.

    'Q*Bert' was actually a big deal back in the 80's. I have many memories of sitting in my parent's basement, playing this game on the Atari. Unfortunately, a couple things keep this PS3 version of 'Q*Bert' from being a mu... Read Full Review

    This classic is brought back in good form with online leaderboards to see how good you really are.

    This is the same Q-bert you grew up with, but with 720p resolution which looks decent enough on HD television sets. The game's biggest draw for me was the ability to see and compete with scores from players around the w... Read Full Review

    The game that I played only when I had nothing else to play - Q*Bert.

    So this review is about Q*Bert, as you can see. Now, before I start off, i'd like to say that I only played this game when I was around 6-8, so my memory might be a bit dim. But please, bear with me. So lets start off w... Read Full Review
