The reviewers on Amazon steered me in the right direction!
19 April 2009
Summary: I was looking for a new type of game to play on my PSP, different from Katamari/Loco Roco/Valkyrie Profile/Burnout/Puzzle Challenge, etc. I usually check out the reviews on Amazon but aren't happy with them, so I was a little apprehensive about getting some of the games I was considering. But this game...this is AWESOME! I'm so glad I listened to you guys! When I first tried to play Zuma on the computer years ago, I got frustrated and gave up very quickly.
Summary: This was a gift for my mother. She LOVES IT! Its very addicting, and she will play it for hours if given the chance. She's not interested in role playing games, horror, shooting or any of those things. This type of game is right up her alley. Its also a great game for kids, as they love the bright colors and can learn good hand/eye coordination. My 4 year old is not particularly good at it but he loves to play it anyway.
Summary: "Totally addictive" - true. I haven't finished this game 2 times like I have on DS, but it is still a lot of fun. I'm glad that Luxor has finally branched out off the PC and came to a console that I can play without sitting at my computer. I actually had to borrow my son's PSP.
Summary: When it comes to video games, probably the most addictive kinds are puzzle games. Classics like Tetris and recent titles like Brain Age, have made gamers go wild with addiction, and still prove that they are popular for years to come. While puzzle games have thrived for most video game systems like the Nintendo DS, they just have missed the mark at times for the Sony PSP.
