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: 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.
Excerpt: Right from the start of the game, Puyo Pop fever looks much higher budget than a lot of the games I've played recently on the Nintendo DS. However, this is probably because it is higher-budget. The Puyo Pop games are rather well-known. Before you start, there is a nice video (which can, of course, be skipped) running through the different characters. It looks and sounds nice in general. Good start.
Excerpt: Ok, I'm cheating slightly here; but I'll be straight up and honest. The review title says Puyo Pop Fever for Nintendo DS, but I'm actually writing a review of the Nintendo Gamecube game. However, the games are identical! Having had MUCH more experience on the gamecube than on a DS, I feel I'm much more qualified to write about this!! The only difference is the two player option. Well, first things first then..
Summary: Puyo pop fever est un bon jeu de puzzle dans la lignée de ses concurrents sans pour autant arriver à leur cheville. Si vous jouez seul il va vite se montrer lassant et n'a qu'un intérêt qu'en mode multijoueur et dans ce cas seulement c'est un bon investissement.
