Review: Lumines: Electronic Symphony (Sony Playstation Vita)
12 May 2012
Summary: : Lumines: Electronic Symphony definitely has its strong points, and for the most part is a fantastic puzzle experience for the Playstation Vita with some interesting presentation and gameplay options, but not as much originality or variety in return.
Excerpt: Lumines was a launch title for Sony’s PSP back in 2004/2005 and the trend continues with the fourth installment available on launch day for the Play Station Vita. Being a sucker for buy one get one half-off deals, I picked up this title to expand my Vita game library.
Pros: Solid soundtrack; improved retry; working with gamers around the world to deplete the world block.
Conclusion: If this game had solid online gameplay, I’d bump this up a point. Those only caring for a solid single-player experience should take this into account. It’s a worthy puzzle game for the Vita.
Excerpt: It just wouldn't be a Sony portable without a new Lumines , would it? Of course, this tradition doesn't exactly go back very far, but I felt that very strongly when the PS Vita was first revealed. And now that the system is here, the flagship game to launch... is Uncharted 3 .
