Excerpt: Every Extend Extra is a lesson to all of us here at Family Friendly Gaming. Just because a developer came up with some fun games in the past does not mean everything they come up with is golden. I purchased Every Extend Extra from our fantastic friends over at Amazon. I had high hopes for it because it came from Q Entertainment. I also found it for a good price, so I hoped for another gem. You detonate yourself trying to create a chain reaction.
Excerpt: First I have to start by saying that I have no idea what the title of Every Extend Extra is supposed to mean. What I do know is that it is a puzzle game from the makers of the popular Lumines puzzle game. It shares a collection of cool beat tracks and funky colorful backgrounds with Lumines, but its gameplay is decidedly different.
Excerpt: The PSP has seen a few notable puzzle games, the biggest of these being Lumines , which was hailed by many to be the next Tetris . Q Entertainment, the studio behind Lumines , has rolled out Every Extend Extra , a puzzle game that might not see the same acclaim as Lumines , but gives puzzle players a challenge. Every Extend Extra looks like a Geometry teacher’s acid trip.
Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Every Extra Extend can be frustrating at first but just like all the best music tracks, it grows on you over time and soon becomes endearing. As we have come to expect from Q Entertainment, it is visually and sonically mesmerising, constantly pushing you into the zone. It asks only two questions; what will you risk your precious craft for? And what will you gladly sacrifice it for?
Excerpt: before it, the game took seconds to actually understand, but would give dozens -- possibly even hundreds for those really hooked -- of hours of play time that slowly matured and became deeper the longer you played with the game. It helped creator Tetsuya Mizuguchi's newfound company, Q Entertainment, establish themselves as one of the must-have games for the just-launched PSP, and had everyone wondering just what the developer would be working on. .
Summary: Tetsuya Mizuguchi. Nom qui résonne dans le cœur des fans comme le must des jeux hybrides, souvent à connotation musicale. Pour les autres, c’est un énième créateur japonais de jeux vidéo dont la seule évocation se traduira par un « hein ? ». Alors, son dernier soft, Every Extend Extra sur PSP est-il aussi passionnant que ses précédentes œuvres ?
Pros: Réalisation, Concept, Musique, Challenge, Prix
Cons: Répétitif, Balaise, Nombre de niveau et d’environnement
Conclusion: Dit is een weliswaar erg korte review, maar de conclusie was dan ook snel gemaakt. Net zoals met Lumines en Meteos slaagt Q Entertainment met Every Extend Extra erin een erg origineel spelende en vooral uitziende game te maken. Jammer genoeg is de inhoud net iets minder verslavend en boeiend dan in hun echte puzzeltoppers. Enkel voor wie verzot is op dergelijke games of meer experimentele spelletjes zoals Rez.
