I had been doing the original 3x3 Rubik's cube since it first came out in 1981, so when I saw a 4x4 version, I had to buy it. It is so much more fun, given that the middle pieces aren't in place, and there is great scope for creating patterns. If you liked the original cube, you'll love this!

This is (maybe obviously) rather much more tricky than the standard 3x3x3 cube.

The real aspect that makes this one a challenge (for me) is that each side has an even number of squares, and so the is no square in the very centre of any side.

So you have to put the four squares in the centre of each side there yourself. Not only that, but you must also place the red centre correctly in relation to the yellow and the white centres etc. This is quite tricky.

Then there are further complications with parity (odd/evenness of permutations for those who understand) with the middle-edge pieces. There is still an element of guess work in that stage of the solution for me to this day (perhaps something I need to master).

There is indeed a 5x5x5 professor cube also. The professor cube is not in every respect more difficult than the revenge, since the professor cube has an odd number of squares on each side, and so eradicates some of the difficulties of the revenge. I believe now that 6x6x6 and 7x7x7 cubes have also recently become available.

One last thing about the revenge - it is structurally more complicated than the standard cube, and so is probably less durable for that reason.

Be warned, this is an EXTREMELY difficult puzzle. If you thought the standard Rubik's Cube was too hard, or if you've never tried these cube puzzles before, stay well away!

However, for those who have already mastered the original Cube, this one adds extra challenge. Just to give an idea, my Dad was a bit of a speedcuber back in the day, he could solve the original Rubik's Cube in no time at all, yet he gave up on this one very quickly!

Once you've cracked the Revenge, you can apparently move on to the Rubik's Professor Cube which is 5x5x5! Mind-boggling stuff.

I recently bought a 3x3x3 classic rubiks cube of which i found extremely
entertaining yet when i began to master it, thought of it slightly easy.
I decided to put my money where my mouth is and go for the 4x4x4 cube.
It is a lot harder as there is no center square yet there is such fun
to be gained trying to piece it together.
If you have mastered the 3x3x3 cube get this!!!
If you cannot do the 3x3x3 cube, don't!! unless of course you are willing
to undertake the challenge!!
There is an excellent guide on youtube on how to solve both the 3x3x3
and the 4x4x4 cube so don't be put off if you are a determined person!!
Go for it!!

I started cubing at christmas when i was presented with my first 3x3x3 cube. I was determined to master the thing. Eventually i was able to do it and i'm working hard to get a quick time.
I decided to go for a little harder challenge and so the 4x4x4 was the obvious next step. It was a challenge but knowledge from the 3x3x3 one makes it easier to pick up strategies and techniques. Once you master this the 3x3x3 seems so much more simple. This is deffinutly a good buy for people wanting more then a 3x3x3. But if your just starting out go for the 3x3x3 as you deffinutly need it to understand this one.
5x5x5 here i come!!!

I purchased the Rubik's Revenge after i completely mastered the original cube..but this cube is a huge disappointment. The blocks come off very easily and the whole cube feels really loose. Lubing the cube just makes everything worse. I then purchased some Eastsheen cubes from Ebay and the quality of their cubes are absolutely amazing. Lighter, very nice to twist, and smaller. I highly recommend Eastsheen cube for 4x4x4 and also 5x5x5. If you're interested in even bigger cubes like the 6x6x6 and 7x7x7, check out V-cubes they are the best but a lil pricey

Believe me when I say this: Solving the 4x4 Revenge is not more difficult than solving the 3x3, rather it requires slightly different techniques to be used. Whether you have mastered the 3x3, or you'd rather face a different challenge, the Revenge is JUST for you!

Essentially, the bulk of the method involves solving the cube exactly like you'd solve a 3x3. The extra challenge involves orientating the centers properly since there's no fixed center piece (YIKES!). The only potentially confusing thing about the 4x4 is pairing up the double edges, or dedges, and there are only a couple of extra algorithms to learn (these are just pre-defined sequences). The manual makes a dog's dinner out of trying to explain the method so I strongly recommend that you click onto youtube and search "how to solve the 4x4". There are great videos out there that give a personalised explanation of the method. If you think you can crack it without a tutorial, great!

I struggled to rate the cube on durability since I've only had it for a couple of days, but as with all Rubik's brand cubes build quality is not of the highest standard and since the mechanisms involved in the 4x4 are considerably more complex the thing's bound to be more temperamental, and DO expect to pop out a piece every now and then (it's normal and happens to everyone once in a while).

Once again I should say that solving the Revenge is not a big step up in difficulty, there's just one small thing called parity which is also explained all over the internet.

I highly recommend this cube and wish you hours of happy solving!

Update: I accidentally stood on the cube after leaving it on the floor and it exploded into all 56 pieces, cracking one of them and rendering the entire thing useless. This may be stating the obvious but the Rubik's brand Revenge does not take kindly to feet!
