Summary: I travel long distance a lot and picked up a Vita to keep me entertained during those long and uncomfortable journeys. The first game I picked up for it was Lumines. Having enjoyed the PSP iterations, I wasn't disappointed by Q Entertainment's latest offering. The game is based around rotating coloured blocks until you match up four or more of one colour in a fashion similar to, but not exactly like, Tetris.
Summary: I absolutely loved the original on the PSP so was looking forward to this very much. I felt a little let down however as the randomise block sometimes makes it fell like there is an element of luck e when I always thought of Lumines as a game of skill. Also, it lacks a bit of the charm the original had. That said, Electronic Symphony is still a stunningly attractive game and has the customary excellent soundtrack you expect of the Lumines games. Recommended.
Summary: Had a list of games to get when I bought a Vita and this was one of them, and not disappointed, just over a tenner and addictive fun with cool tunes, just becomes a bit repetitive, but still fun for the occasional blast.
Summary: Lumines: Electronic Symphony is a very fun game, you have to use planning and combinations in a way that doesn't fill up your screen, it's somewhat like Tetris but uses colour rather than lines to break blocks. There is a general mode which gets harder as the game goes on, faster falling blocks, slower moving break line. I would recommend watching a video of the gameplay to see if this is a game for you.
Summary: Lumines: Electronic Symphony is the third game in the Lumines series, but the first one to appear on the Playstation Vita. The previous iterations appeared on the Sony PSP and were very popular, although the second game was less revolutionary than the first, and the same could be said for this game, since it doesn't add anything new to the franchise.
Quick, Chicken Licken...there's blocks falling from the sky!!

Pros: The Best Puzzle Game on the PS Vita, Great for short bursts of play
Cons: No real incentive to play onwards, Price might be steep for some
Summary: A good musical puzzle game... The track selection is excellent, and I'm not even a fan of techno... Annoyingly, unlocking new tracks is painfully slow, as the journey mode forces you to start the same sequence all over again everytime you play, which gets boring after a while. It would also have been nice to be able to listen to the songs without playing (i.e. use the game as a compilation of electronic music). Sadly, this does not seem possible...
Excerpt: "...Vita. Over the years Lumines has been released on a whole host of different platforms, from the PC and Playstation 2 to Xbox Live Arcade. If you’ve played any of the previous titles then you’ll know what to expect here, as the addictive puzzle-based gameplay remains fundamentally unchanged. The goal behind the game is to match different coloured blocks, it is effectively an enhanced version of Tetris, but different levels tweak the ...
Pros: Great soundtrack along with the same addictive gameplay that has become a hallmark of the series .
Cons: Isn't significantly different from previous titles, and fails to fully utilise the Vita's features .
