Magic Ball

Thunderbolt Games
11 February 2009
  • Excerpt: Often, the very simplest ideas make for the most enduring videogames. Take the likes of Tetris or Peggle ; supremely simplistic concepts executed to near-perfection that have effortlessly stood the test of time in the years after their release. Another such example might be Atari’s quiet classic Breakout , which first appeared in the ’70s, but the concept has been reworked time and time again over the years.

Do Not Taunt Magic Ball

  • Conclusion: Magic Ball is fun enough while it lasts, but it'll only last you a weekend or so at most. That's still reasonable for $10, but some may want to hold off until it comes down in price before getting their feet wet.

  • Excerpt: isn’t a brain-buster – it’s a good old-fashioned finger and reflex-buster – it’s still entertaining.

Magic Ball (PS3) - Review

VGChartz
18 January 2009
  • Excerpt: Some classic games have trouble translating into 3D. Time and time again we have seen developers taking a classic game and trying to reinvent it for the modern gamer. Of course while most aren't failures they haven't been as good as the originals. This is where Magic Ball comes in. Magic Ball is a game that takes the traditional breakout or block-breaking genre and shows that it can be taken from a 2D plain and evolved to take on 3D.

Magic Ball

Play3-Live.com
21 March 2009
  • Summary: Magic Ball est sans conteste l'un des jeux les plus funs et les plus addictifs du PlayStation Network. Avec en plus une réalisation tout en 3D, Create Studios a bien réussi le pari de dépoussiérer le casse-briques pour en faire un titre neuf. Il est par contre dommage que sa durée de vie ne tienne pas le coup, sachant qu'il coûte 10 euros et qu'en plus un add-on est déjà prévu, qui espérons-le, sera à un prix raisonnable, voire gratuit.
  • Pros: Fun et addictif, Réalisation mignonne
  • Cons: Durée de vie faible par rapport au prix, Des niveaux trop similaires, Musique lassante

  • Excerpt: Na PS Store ostatnimi czasy coraz częściej można wyłowić prawdziwe perełki, które za małe pieniądze dostarczają sporo frajdy. Ot, taki Magic Ball , który do gatunku gier komputerowych nie wnosi nic nowego, ba: jest klasycznym na wskroś przedstawicielem gier w stylu Arkanoid czy Breakout . Wydawałoby się, że mało kto pokusi się o zainteresowanie tym tytułem. Jest wręcz odwrotnie: już na starcie recenzji jestem gotów z czystym sumieniem polecić Wam tę grę.
