5.0 out of 5 stars From the maker of REZ March 30, 2005
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
When I purchased this game on launch day, I only knew one thing about it: It was made by the same guy who made REZ. Really, that's all I needed to know to part with my cash.

REZ is a hard to find shooter title for Dreamcast/PS2 that set itself apart by completely integrating the visuals and the gameplay with the music.

Lumines, although the game itself is completely different, also delivers big on this concept. Each action you take, rotating the falling peices, destroying a square of same-colored blocks, setting off a huge combo, all trigger unique musical embellishments and sound effects that go with the soundtrack for each level. This in itself would be enough to make a game engrossing, but the mechanics and hectic pacing of the game make it all the more addictive.

Lumines is a falling blocks game, but it is in no way a tetris clone. Squares fall in blocks of four, and come in two colors, arranged in the block at random. By arranging the squares into 2x2 blocks of like colors, a bar that moves across the screen will clear it. Squares can be as big as you want, and can overlap. Also, depending on the music for the stage, the bar may move faster or slower. There are also special blocks that will clear all blocks of the same color that are touching it. It sounds simple, and it is, but the most addictive puzzle games always are.

This game belongs with every PSP purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's got it all March 29, 2005
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I was a little leary of getting a "puzzle" game for the PSP, but I went with the reviews and lo and behold...I've played almost nothing else on the PSP! This game is great, it's addicting, if you listen to the audio through a set of headphones, the experience is almost all-encompassing.

It's just a well made game...to me, it's like an ultra-hip version of Tetris. It's the "Thinking Man's" game for PSP. :-)

Gameplay: 5 of 5

Controls: 5 of 5

Eye Candy Value: 5 of 5

Ear Candy Value: 5 of 5

Replay Value: 5 of 5

Overall Value: 5 of 5

Chances you'll be up into the wee hours with headphones on playing: 5 of 5

I'm a happy customer, definitely the best of the 3 games I've bought so far (Ridge Racer..very good too and Wipeout...gotta love it too).

4.0 out of 5 stars A true must-own for the PSP October 16, 2005
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Much like Tetris has become the standard puzzler for the Gameboy systems, Lumines defines puzzle games for the PSP.

GAMEPLAY:

Instead of building lines, as in Tetris, you build squares of varying sizes, similar to Puyo-Puyo or Super Puzzle Fighter. This basic gameplay, in and of itself, does nothing to distinguish it from the puzzler crowd, though no one has ever complained about the puzzle formula before. The catch is that a Time Line passes over the playing field at varying intervals depending on the song you are currently playing. Your blocks will not clear until the line passes over them. This allows you to build your blocks in size, build mutiple blocks or just plain scramble to get a block cleared before you get a stack that touches the top. The larger your blocks and the more blocks you get cleared per pass, the higher your score multiplyer. This adds another layer to the basic puzzle strategy.

In addition to the basic challenge mode (play as long as you can), there is a puzzle mode which asks you to build certain shapes within a time limit. This can be challenging and requires a lot of though to get some of the puzzles. There's also a versus mode which you can play against another PSP-owning friend, or against the computer. In this mode, the player clearing more blocks gains more of the screen, giving the other player less room to work with. This tends to unbalance the game, as someone who gets down early will have a hard time clearing blocks with little space to create them in. Overall, for anyone who has enjoyed Tetris, Puyo-Puyo or Super Puzzle Fighter, the basic gameplay will be familiar yet rewarding and will provide endless hours of challenge and entertainment for the new PSP owner.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing December 22, 2005
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've had Lumines since May. I'm still playing it. It's absolutely amazing. I can guarantee all the people who gave it under a 4/5 stars have never played it and are just making it sound like they played it. If you play it for one hour, you will become addicted. It's amazingly fun. Don't even try to say Polarium or Tetris is better. I also have Meteos and while it's good, it's nowhere near as amazing as Lumines. Meteos is more original, has a cool concept but is nowhere near Lumines in terms of depth, fun and addictiveness. I've probably played Lumines for more than 200 hours so far. And no signs of stopping. This is one of the best games I've ever played and hell, it's portable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tetris Grew Up December 27, 2005
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is one of PSPs best of 2005... and for a reason! It has it all. Eye-candy... ear-candy.... and for those of you who actually prefer a thinking game every now and then.... brain-candy. Luminies is a Tetris/BustaMove spin off. But it's not for your 7 year old. It takes a bit of brain power to play this game. But once you get the hang of it, it is throughly addicting. You will be up until 4am playing it, with your ear buds in, bouncn' to the beat. And this won't be one of those games you trade in after a month. I've played it for more hours than I care to admit to and it still hasn't gotten 'old'. It has become my 'old faithful' of PSP games.

Here is the deal. Picture a tetris game board. This board almost looks identical to Tetris....only a bit wider. The difference is...there are eye-catching skins in the background and ear-catching music playing in the background. Depending on what mode your playing in, you can win more of these! Just like tetris, every time you advance a level...they both change... along with the color of the pieces you are positioning on the game board. Trust me... your eyes won't get tired and your ears won't be screaming after 30 minutes. The game pieces are a cube made up of 4 small blocks that can each be one of two colors. So instead of different shapes to position together (Tetris)... in Luminies you always have the same cube, but the 4 colors that make it up can be positioned differently. (or they might all be one color!) You can rotate the cube just like in tetris. it also shows you what your next 3 pieces are going to be (just like Tetris). The idea is to get blocks of 4 colors together. The more you stack together at once...the bigger your bonus. There is also a line that goes across the screen to clear them out.

Is a puzzle game. What more can I write, but write that if you like a different styled 'Tetris' then jump right in.
