Summary: If it passes my mom's test it certainly passes mine. I have this an average simply because I personally do not like puzzle games and find them slightly boring.
Pros: My mother is not a gamer in the least bit. However she tends to enjoy puzzles like sudoku and Zuma, so I bought her this for the plane on a one week trip to Mexico. She absolutely loved it! I had a hard time getting my PSP back through out the vacation!
Summary: If you are the kind of person that enjoys spinning and dropping blocks until you can't see straight, this game could even be more fun than Tetris! [I do, and it is...] The one drawback for me: If I could just figure out how to get it to change the order of songs in its default challenge mode, because that first one is REALLY starting to irritate me! Well, maybe I'll just have to buy Lumines II to get around it...
Excerpt: "...birthday and I thought that Lumines would be a brilliant game to ask for. I ended up getting the game and I was really happy and couldn't wait to play it. I put this bad boy into the PSP and started to play it, I thought it was an all right game even though it was just an updated version of Tetris. There isn't really that much to say about this PSP game other than it's an updated version of Tetris. I think after playing this game I would recommend ...
Pros: Upgraded version of Tetris, very colourful and Hypnotising
Cons: Just an upgraded version of Tetris nothing really added to it apart from Multiplayer mode
Summary: New platforms usually mean a slew of below-par games immediately after release. The PSP has had its fair share of average games. And that includes Lumines. Its simply not good enough. Graphically, its pleasing enough (though it would have been hard to have got it wrong given the limited nature of the game). Gameplay is simply. But it lacks depth and, crucially for this genre, addictiveness. After a few gos, I simply couldn't be bothered.
Excerpt: ...Vi ricordate il caro vecchio TETRIS? bhè lumines per psp è un prodotto della ubisoft ed è un decisamente un tetris rivisitato, innovativo e modernizzato. invece dei soliti mattoncini ad incastro lumines ha una serie di quadratini suddivisi a loro ...
Summary: POur un tetris-like, le jeu est vraiment très bien réalisé. J'ai beaucoup aimé au début, mais malgré la variété des musiques (vraiment top d'ailleurs) et des graphismes (superbes),le jeu devient quand même répétitif au bout d'un certain temps.
Summary: Pues bueno, asi a simple vista parece un tetris normal y corriente...Yo al jugar pense....VAYA TIMO, pero estas un rato y piensas....yo me estoy enganchando a esto? Consiste en cuadrados de 2 de ancho y 2 de largo, que tienen varios colores. Trata de hacer combianciones entre el mismo color. Los escenarios no es que esten muy logradospero segun vayas avanzando irá todo más rapido, la musica, el escenario....todo lo posible para que te despistes y ZAS!
