A Nice Timewaster, but not as good as the previous games.

Summary: I love the Bust-A-Move series, but I must admit that i was a little disappointed in this game. Overall it is fun and well worth picking up, but it has a lot of little problems that drag it down and it just flat out isn't as enjoyable as its predecessors. Bust-A-Move is your classic "match three" game with a little twist: you try to connect different coloured bubbles and burst large groups of matching colours to win big points.
Summary: I have loved Bust A Move since I first played the Neo-Geo version in an arcade some 15 years ago. I have played various home versions of it, from the stellar (Dreamcast) to the pretty good (Gamecube). The DS version, which uses the touch screen to fire your little ball, slingshot-style, is a fun and innovative addition to this classic game, but it doesn't allow for as much precision.
Conclusion: I love Bust-a-Move on Playstation, so this was a must-buy for me as soon as I bought my DS. Though I must say, I was a little bit disappointed in comparison to the Playstation, but the game itself is excellent.
Excerpt: "...one! The previous incarnations of the Bust-A-Move games are fairly alien to me since I had never really played them. Yet I knew the basic premise for the game at least: shoot the little coloured blobs and link them up with the same little coloured blobs to make all the little coloured blobs go bye-bye. It's a tried and tested puzzle game cliché but don't let it's misleading simplicity put you off: Bust-A-Move DS is deep. So many possibilites to ...
Pros: Fantastic multiplayer, great use of DS stylus
