Excerpt: Music is a big part of LUMINES: Supernova . Each level has its own trippy soundtrack that matches up with the visuals. In addition, the song's tempo determines the speed of the Time Line that passes over the block bin. Sometimes the songs are faster, clearing the field quickly, but giving you less time to place blocks. This also affects the speed that blocks fall into the bin.
Excerpt: Each stage is played in a series of “skins.” These skins make up a background and a musical track. Every time you do anything, whether it be moving a block or erasing a stack, the music reacts. the background pulses and shifts. As you stay alive, the skin changes, so that playing the game becomes less an attempt to get lots of points and more an attempt to stay alive to see as many interesting skins as possible.
Excerpt: Q Entertainment's Lumines is a hard game to dislike. Like that relatively unknown puzzler Tetris , there's an elegant simplicity to Lumines ' gameplay, supplemented by creator Tetsuya Mizuguchi's fabulous artistic sensibilities and a solid dance beats-heavy soundtrack. Oh, it's also portable.
Excerpt: Like the Xbox Live Arcade version of Lumines Live before it, the PlayStation Network release of Lumines Supernova proves that the franchise's vibrant graphical style and uncomplicated gameplay translate magnificently to high-definition. What makes this PlayStation Network-exclusive such an improvement over its predecessor is what you get for your money.
Pros: Lots of new, beautiful skins, Sequencer, Mission, and Dig Down modes are a good change of pace, Simple gameplay with tons of underlying depth, Jam-packed with content for just $15, Brilliant presentation, style, and music
Cons: No online multiplayer or Versus CPU mode, Lots of recycled content
Conclusion: If you don't have any other versions of Q Entertainment's little music puzzler, then by all mean, grab this one. If you have already taken the plunge, though, perhaps it's best to wait for it to drop in price a little.
Summary: Lumines Supernova riesce anche su PS3 a stupire per la propria struttura rocciosa, rimasta intatta anche in questa versione HD. 40 nuove skin, 100 puzzle da completare, 50 missioni da portare a termine e alcune sorprese sbloccabili giocando ai livelli avanzati (senza svelare molto, vi diciamo che c'entra qualcosa anche Little Big Planet!).
