When a puzzle game breaks the mold of tetris

 Lumines is the culmination of what a puzzle game should be,
with a great sound.

No matter what your preferences are or whether or not your looking for a puzzle type game, buy this.

The sound effects are perfect when interconnected to its little bit out there music.

The look, whether it be the color of the blocks or the animation of eliminating 16 blocks are what a puzzle game should look like. The animations are huge without becoming an eyesore after a few hours of play.

I never liked puzzle games all that much, but I find myself playing this game over and over again just to beat my high score or trying to create a new shape in one of the extra puzzle modes.

No matter what I write, I can never convey the pure and simple enjoyment of playing Lumines. The core game is amazing and with the addition of several deep and very different game modes, an unusually replayable game is created.

Somehow this game is just different, whether its the look, the sound, or the core gameplay. It's hard to say, but any one who owns a psp should buy this game.

     It's been a little over a year since the PSP came out, and now that Lumines 2 is coming out, I had to get the first.. and it was the smartest 20 bucks I've spent in a good while.The gameplay is fairly simple, make a 2x2 square of the same color, and don't let your screen get filled up with blocks... Thats it right?WRONG!... even though the idea on paper sounds bland, the gameplay is EXTREMELY ADDICTIVE, and will have you playing the game for hours. The main mode you'll be playing is challenge m...
