Lumines: Puzzle Fusion (PSP) - Review

VGChartz
24 February 2009
  • Excerpt: Back in early 2005 the PSP launched with a quality software line-up comprised of nearly 30 titles which included heavy hitters such as Twisted Metal: Head On and Ridge Racer. Among these titles was a quirky puzzler named Lumines which, true to its name, proved to be a shining gem of a game.

Lumines

Playstation Illustrated
11 December 2006
  • Excerpt: Tetris is sometimes credited as being one of the key factors in the success of the original GameBoy. With this in mind, it's fitting that the PSP, the next generation of handheld gaming, would ship with a game that can be considered the next generation of puzzle games. The brainchild of Tetsuya Mizuguchi, the mind behind the cult hit Rez , Lumines is a fusion of sound, lights and mind-bending puzzles that is easy to play, but that doesn't mean you'll master it anytime...

  • Excerpt: Of course, there are still other elements of the game, such as the "bonus" block that eliminates all blocks of the same color that happen to be touching it. But as many find with strategy and puzzle games, the greatest part of the game is strategy, and with two variables to account for in

Lumines

Portable Review
22 October 2005
  • Excerpt: A perfect score? Does this game truly deserve this seemingly unobtainable measure of greatness? In a word, yes. I can't stress enough how good this game is. It just has something that grabs a hold on you and doesn't ever let go. I can see this game being ported to console after console just as Tetris before it has been. However, unlike Tetris, Lumines has the potential to be completely different on each system and in each retelling simply by adding new music to the mix.

23 June 2005
  • Excerpt: Every great handheld has had its puzzle games. Game Boy had Tetris, Nintendo DS has Meteos, and the PSP has Lumines. At first glance, Lumines looks just like any other puzzle game launched with any console, but Lumines really has more to it. It was created by Tetsuya Mizuguchi, the man who brought you Rez, Space Channel 5 and Sega Rally.
