Summary: this is one very entertaining title from Sega...i still wonder why they didn't wanted us to get that game on DS...but at least Atlus brought it here, thanks! up to 8 players can play at the same time, with (multi-card) or without (single-card) the game. you need at least 1 person to have the game. if you play via "DS Download play", you'll have less sounds while playing, to cut in the game transfer time (otherwise it would take around 2-3 minutes longer i guess).
Summary: This game is a nice 'time killer' sort of game. Simple to understand and just hard enough to be a challenge. Two different ways to play, challenge the NPC or play on your own for some mindless fun. Would recommend if you like tetris type games.
Summary: Puyo Pop Fever is a decent puzzle game. It uses the same basic premise of other puyo puyo games. American Audiences would be more familiar with Kirby's Avalanche and Dr Robotnicks Mean Bean Machine, from the SNES and Genesis respectively. The object is simple. Match groups of 4 or more of the same color puyo blob to make them disappear. If making a group disappear causes others to form into groups, you get chains. Larger chains reap great rewards.
Summary: An outstanding puzzle game from Sega! I had this ages ago on my Dreamcast, but I'm so glad it has been ported to the DS and PSP. It may not be the exact quality as the Dreamcast or PSP version, but it has 8 player mode which is great. Nonetheless, it is a faithful port of the original game. I find myself playing this game until my DS battery dies. Highly recommended game!!!
Summary: The game itself is not too complicated, but provides hours of entertainment through the use of puzzles. The level of difficulty range from easy to moderate. My Daughter (12) enjoys the series. As this is an older game, you should be able to pick it up used (like I did). It would be a low-cost surprise to keep your kid occupied during a family trip.
Summary: Hmm. Where to start? Many may find this game to be average but I think it's delectably delicious! The concept is easy enough: Connect four Puyos (the little, bouncy ball dudes =P) together to make a chain (Reaction), sending nuisance Puyos over to your enemy's side. Along the way your teacher, Professor Accord gives small tips on how to play.
Summary: This game, I love it!!! It's so much fun. Although, I prefer Kirby's Avalanche for Super Nintendo, the old version, but this one is pretty good too. The game mode that I love the most, is to play against 4 other players it can be the CPU or your friends. The single player mode, I don't like very much. The character that I like is the Cat, A hidden character, you get it after you fight in Run Run course.
Summary: This is a great puzzle game when you have a few friends to share it with, but on it's own it falls short. There are three story type modes with a specified amount of levels each. If you suck at these types of games you will be able to beat the first one, and get stuck in the second. I have no idea about the third. This game is hard. On single player it can get very frustrating.
Summary: Well, I've been a fan of the Puyo Puyo series since the Game Boy Advance (which isn't really all that long ago), but I was so hooked on the game from that system that I bought the Japanese version right when it came out for the DS. I racked up some pretty high scores just like before and the game's interests holds up for about six months or so, I'd say.

Summary: I'm a big fan of the Puyo Pop series. It's like Tetris with a twist - instead of falling squares, you have falling Puyos, little critters with wiggly eyes! The basic idea is that you are playing "tetris" head to head against an enemy. You both get the exact same falling colors, and have to connect them into chains to make them vanish and score points. If you create large chains, you get to drop clear Puyos down on your enemy, making their life more difficult.
