Old-school multiplayer shooters revolved a very simple idea: frag as many enemies as you possibly can. The rest of the gameplay mechanics were built around this concept, which is why games like Quake and Half-Life managed to remain popular for years to come, not to mention the various mods they spawned. However, there were other titles out there as well, with just as much potential as the legendary games published by huge studios. Cube was designed to come as close to the triple-A alternatives and it features most of the same elements, including fast-paced gameplay mechanics and the emphasis on fragging. Hence, all you have to do is choose a map from the hefty pool of available ones and start shooting, together with your friends or people from all over the world. In fact, the list of included maps is long enough to satisfy everyone and keep you occupied for long periods of time. Not all of them are brilliant, but itís all about changing the environment every now and again, to avoid getting bored. Moreover, each map is littered with various power-ups and ammunition for your weapons, so players always have to keep an eye on that armor bonus, or the precious health packs.
