Summary: this one has some pretty hard levels to be able to see. you really have to be able to concentrate on the details of the shapes. the hardest for me is a black and white outline level. you really have to go hard to beat that one.
Summary: If you never played the original Lumines I suggest you pick part two especially for the cheap price tag.Game play is very simple but you don't play this game for for the simplicity but for the great music.Part one does have better songs but will never get bored with it.This version does have more songs and a lot more features.You simply can't go wrong.
Summary: This game takes a bit of time getting used to, but it can be quite fun. I am a fan of Tetris, but since it's not available on PSP, Lumines was the closest thing to it. I don't like the music the game tries to tout, but no big deal.... I commute to work by train everyday, an hour each way, and this game is a good time-killer.
Summary: First off the graphics are pretty good, above average and it's pretty flashy. Different tracks for each level and will waste your minutes like no other task. A simple level took 10-15 mins and it felt only like 2 or 3 so it's perfect for those minutes you want to waste away. Rarely any lag and loading time is nothing. I have yet to beat the game since it obviously becomes harder and harder.
Summary: The game is great and worth getting but the music (all of it)sucks. One track in particular- Stroll Around the World is pure garbage and annoying as hell. It's on one of the earlier levels so it must be endured every single time you play. I have not played the first Lumines but if it has the same gameplay and better music you should probably get that one instead.
Summary: Good game, really draws you in. The music is awesome and very good at keeping your attention on what youre doing. You also have to love the backgrounds for each song, it is really trippy most of the time.
Summary: The Game is so addictive it's hard to put down. At first I found it insanely difficult, because the last puzzle game I really got into was Tetris, and this is a different idea. Maybe at first glance it looks the same as Tetris, but this is a puzzle game that is easy once you get the hang of it, but then to keep the game going and unlock new music videos, there is the real difficulty.
Great addictive concept, but lacking some needed options

Summary: Much like it's predecessor Lumines and Lumines Plus, this little puzzle game is highly addictive and game play short enough where a player can get in a few rounds in 10 minutes or so. The concept is simple enough, yet hard to master: 2x2 blocks fall down, Tetris style, where you must rotate and move the blocks inorder to match like colors in 2x2 or larger to clear them out.
Summary: I had the first Lumines and it's a very funny game. When I saw the little price of the second, I decided to buy it. The game is not very different but the music is new, there is some music clip in background and the design is much more better. FUN !
Summary: Being a total gaming freak, of my two portable consoles my Nintendo DS Lite gets the most attention. However, Lumines II on the PSP is one of my favourites. The graphics are far superior on the Sony PSP, but the games are often lacking in addictiveness. Lumines 2, like the original, is a modern take on the classic Tetris game. The main aim of the game is to build blocks into squares of four matching colours.
Pros: Great graphics, addictive, good tunes
Cons: A bit more variety would make you come back more often
