Summary: This game is a lot like Tetris, but instead of eliminating lines, you elimate blocks. In this game, you are playing for skins, new wear for your blocks, essentially. I found this game to be very addictive and hard to put down once I started.
Summary: What a fantastic game. When it was first recommended to me, I thought it was going to be another Tetris. But not so! A fantastic game, it's very addictive. I never tire of playing it - and with the different modes of play, you can spend hours unlocking new levels, completing new challenges, and trying to best your own score. I highly recommend this game to anyone - great for all ages.
Lumines is an addicting must-buy for any PSP owner.

Summary: At first glance, many would think this is another copy of Tetris, but the gameplay is at the best a block clearing game can be and it's presented well. Instead of using the standard "L" shape, the peices are in blocks instead, where you must match four blocks. The line moving across is what clears peices. To make a combo, you can shove more peices into the vortex to clear. You can have several users on the game with different avatars which you can unlock.
Summary: Lumines presents a familiar conundrum to fans of the puzzle genre. Basically, they must get rid of blocks by lining them up strategically. But in Lumines, blocks of like color must be arranged in rectangular shapes, and they are cleared from the screen by a timeline, which intermittently "wipes" the screen. As gamers progress through the game, not only do the blocks begin falling faster, but also the timeline slows down, making it harder to clear out blocks rapidly.
Summary: When I first got my PSP I had a hard time deciding which game to buy. First I bought Twisted Metal and after about 3 weeks it had gotten boring so I bought Lumines. I had been reading in magazines and on the Internet about how great this game was so I just picked it up. At first it reminded me of Tetris but after playing it a few times I realized that it was something much greater. The gameplay is hard to describe in words. It's a puzzle game so what more can I say?
