Summary: I bought this game strictly because of the awesome reviews I have read about it. When I got it and popped it into my DS I was slightly disappointed. The story mode is absolutely useless. There are 3 modes where you travel to different planets, but it's generally all the same thing. There is nothing motivating you to keep going. I enjoyed playing against my friend who owns a DS, but other then that, this game doesn't really hold it's own.
Summary: I'm an adult and bought this game for myself several months ago because I like puzzle games. I was disappointed with this one. I just found it too stressful because you have to think really fast in order to win. It also got difficult very quickly. I prefer games where I can observe the situation and ponder what the best move is. I wasn't having fun with this one and so it has been "shelved".
Summary: What a silly game. But it is fun. And it did make me want to play it more. But it's 100% luck. I considered myself way too old to ever be able to learn and master any game well enough to "finish it". But that's exactly what I did in my second round of Meteos. The object of the game is simple. Each level starts out with 3 rows of apx 15 - 20 blocks. The blocks have different designs and colors. When the game begins more blocks rain from space and start piling up.
Summary: THE GOOD: Great presentation featuring catchy tunes and vibrant, colorful graphics; cool interplanetary theme; provides some challenge THE BAD: Puzzle aspect isn't brain-based but twitch-based; lots of modes but most feel the same; gameplay can get old rather quickly. DIFFICULTY: Medium When Meteos was released alongside Lumines for the PSP, they were both hailed as the two "must-have" titles for both competing handheld systems.
Something Decent To Play Until Tetris Is Released For DS

Summary: I had heard and read quite a bit about 'Meteos' before I purchased it: "Fun", "Addictive", "Like 'Tetris' Only Better", etc. So I bought it and was a little disappointed. 'Meteos' is a puzzle game. Sort of like the aforementioned Russian classic, but with a few tweaks. They've been explained here previously by other reviewers so I'll skip that part in my review. It has got nice(though simple)graphics, excellent responsiveness on the touch screen, and lots of music.
Summary: If you like those old-fashioned Tetris rip-off games like Doctor Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine or Doctor Mario then you'll probably like Meteos (a pretty lame title) but I finished playing it re-eally quickly and I wouldn't recommend buying it. Just rent it. There's really nothing that new about the gameplay either.
Summary: We enjoy playing all kinds of puzzles games, including Dr. Eggman's mean bean machine and Wario's woods because they combine both action and a story. However, Meteos just isn't as played as the other puzzle games. I may be the only one giving this game a low rating, but I just don't find Meteos as challenging as other puzzle games. Basically, all you have to do is scribble the magic pen around in order to get the blocks to disappear.
Summary: This is one of those weird little quirky games that looks like it might be a waste of time but actually turns out to be insanely addictive and life destroying! Utilising the touch screen perfectly, you use the stylus to link blocks of coloured blocks together to launch them across a screen and eventually into a sky of fictional planets, each with their own bizarre ecosystem.
Pros: Cute and uncomplicated. Some features stretch out game-value.
Excerpt: Este juego lo vi por casualidad y empece a jugar simplemente por curiosidad y la verdad esq me engancho bastante aunque lo veo un poco dificil para mover las piezas y cuadrarlas donde quieres. Es adictivo aunque cuesta un poquito hacerse al juego y al principio te desanima un poco porque no consigues pasar de nivel ni nada pero poco a poco vas cogiendole el truco (a mi al principio no me gustaba la verdad...). Si te mola el tetris te gustara, si no...
Pros: original, nivel muy facil al principio, no cuesta empezar
