Summary: I got this game for my first DS and when every I had a moment to play it I did. The adjectives are simple and the game play is addicting. I now play this game on my lunch at work and it is the best way to calm yourself down after hours of annoyances at work.

Summary: If you're a fan of puzzle games like Tetris, then you should certainly give Meteos for the Nintendo DS a try. It's rather like Tetris with a dash of Lumines thrown in. For those who somehow missed out on Tetris and Lumines, both are falling-block style puzzle games. Tetris is famous for being the first, and Lumines has recently garnered praise for its gorgeous soundtracks and style themes. Meteos doesn't have quite the graphic flair of Lumines, but it does come close.
Summary: This game is a puzzle game. I personally feel that the reviews are too over-rated for what it's worth. It's kind of like Bejeweled except you can only line up blocks vertically, and not horizontally, which kind of bothers me. There's not really a storyline ... it's not incredibly fun, but will probably last you a fairly good ten minutes of game play.
Summary: Curse you, Tetsuya Mizuguchi! Unleashing Lumines on an unsuspecting public wasn't enough? You had to make another incredible puzzle game? Much as I'm loathe to admit it, Lumines drew from that Tetris vibe everyone is so fond of. I'm not saying that's a bad thing, I'm just saying that it really wasn't that original. (Not that there are very many ways you can make falling blocks seem interesting.) Meteos, in contrast, doesn't really have any games you can compare it to.
Summary: this game is really cool but the adventure is way to short. even 5 star mode is easy but the really fun part of the game is multiplayer that is what made me get the game. buy this game if you have cool friends with nintendo ds and metoes buy it but dont get it if you are a nerd that has no friends so over all BUY THIS GAME
Excerpt: This review is for the Nintendo DS game, Meteos, developed by Q Entertainment and published by Nintendo. The game is a Tetris derivative which uses both screens of the DS. Blocks of various colours start to fall from the top of the screen and then form into stacks at the base. You need to get groups of at least three matching blocks, which are then propelled from the screen.
Excerpt: Meteos Score: 9.0 / 10 Handheld gaming gets a full complement of puzzle games. The genre seems extremely well-suited to handle (usually) low-tech games that seek to short circuit brain cells by making gamers think. And sometimes a developer makes a game that exercises brain cells and reflexes at the same time. The combination doesn’t always work but Meteos puts the two together and the results are a solid gameplay experience.
Summary: I got this after reading countless reviews saying it was wonderful. It wasn't. It uses the DS well, and the graphics are tidy and really quite good in all honesty. My problem is I thought it was going to be as good as tetris DS. And it wasn't. It really isn't addictive and is frustrating even when it is suppose to be easy, like near the start. However I would recommend it if you could get it cheaply.
