Summary: I'll start off saying that I picked up this game on a whim (on sale for $20), and in the end I got a bit more than I expected. The game mechanics are easy to learn, but there are enough advance techniques to keep the game interesting. I like the different modes (Puzzle, Daily Play, Endless, etc.), because again it adds to the re-play value. Wireless is also a big plus. I have two boys that love the DS, so we play a lot of wirelss.
Summary: This game was tons of fun when I first tried it out. After beating a few levels, I decided it's not really that great. There are time and score modes. Daily puzzles. But no story line to speak of. If you live for puzzle games with a story line, this game is not for you. This game does have it's fair share of puzzles and the Wi-Fi makes up for what it lacks.
Summary: I have been playing Planet Puzzle League for a couple of weeks now. I enjoy it and have not exhausted all the games. My only complaint would be that there isn't much of a variety in wireless play. What I do like in wireless is the ability for players to play at different levels. That way I can do wireless with everyone from my 10 year old to my 19 year old and the playing field is equal.
Summary: This is a great game. It has a variety of play modes, and even a fun "daily play" mode that can be done once and you can watch how you improve over time. The only problem I have with it is that it only tracks one high score! It's annoying because when I was first learning, I put in an insanely high score on the beginner level and it's turned out to be impossible to ever catch up to it when on the advanced level.
Summary: This is a very enjoyable game especially if you've played any of the previous iterations (Tetris Attack, Pokemon Puzzle League...), however the single player experience is lacks the depth of games like Meteos. The online multiplayer can be very fun and addictive, however there is no true leaderboard for you to see where you rank with all the other players. Sure there is the birthday battle, but those records get wiped every week.
Can be played for as much or as little time as you have

Summary: I'm a big fan of games which can provide a sense of accomplishment without necessitating a large time commitment. This is a perfect game to play when you need a quick break. There are many modes which you can finish in 5 minutes or less. If you want to spend more time, there are also plenty modes that allow you to play as long as you can while the difficulty constantly increases.
