Lumines Electronic Symphony

 

While it's clear Q Entertainment perfected the game's formula on their very first try, this iteration of the neon-lit puzzler is so charming and elegantly formed you'd be a fool to say no.

Great Soundtrack ; Addictive

New modes are guff ; Bit easy

So, yes, it's another Lumines. But it's also the most successful crack at the whip since the original game, and for the first time in a long time the soundtrack feels like it's been properly mulled over. While it's clear Q Entertainment perfected the...

Lumines Electronic Symphony Vita review: A familiar trip

 

The PS Vita's launch line-up includes some reassuringly familiar games, and none more so than Lumines, Japanese maverick Tetsuya Mizuguchi's psychedelic puzzle game loosely inspired by Tetris. However, the fact that publisher Ubisoft has given itg a...

Good use of the touch-screen and touch-pad ; Clever new strategic elements ; More psychedelic than ever

Not exactly breathtakingly original ; Can become repetitive

A judicious update of Mizuguchi's Tetris-with-knobs-on game, which makes sensible use of the Vita's diverse input mechanisms and introduces even greater strategic depth.

Lumines: Electronic Symphony Review

 

Superb presentation and smart improvements to the Lumines formula make Electronic Symphony a great portable puzzle game.

Simple yet deep gameplay that can be enjoyed for any length of time ; Playlist and shuffle options are great additions ; Superb and sizable electronic soundtrack ; Online leaderboards keep you coming back ; Impressive array of visual styles

No AI opponents in Duel mode ; Lacks original game's Puzzle mode

The original game's Puzzle mode, in which you were challenged to create various shapes from the falling blocks, is unfortunately absent, but Lumines: Electronic Symphony is still very much a complete package. The asking price of $39.99 ($35.99 if you...

Lumines Electronic Symphony

 

Ever since its debut on the PSP, the Lumines series has been something of a cult classic. Its blend of techno music and match-4 puzzle gameplay was a winning formula right out of the gate. Since then, it's seen a release on every Sony platform, the...

From an AV perspective, the game delivers the goods. The graphics are about the same as ever - colorful and very active backgrounds highlight it one way, while the diverse look of the tiles keeps things interesting. In the case of the stage with a...

Lumines: Electronic Symphony Review

 

It just wouldn't be a Sony portable without a new Lumines, would it? Of course, this tradition doesn't exactly go back very far, but I felt that very strongly when the PS Vita was first revealed. And now that the system is here, the flagship game to...

With all of that said, something just feels missing from Electronic Symphony. I only knew a few of the songs really intimately, even though I've been listening to Euro dance and electronic music (maybe a tad too narrowly, admittedly) for nearly fifteen...

Lumines Electronic Symphony

 

A new version of the hit puzzler from the geniuses behind Rez and Space Channel 5, Q Entertainment.

Lumines is a phenomenally clever game polished to a new level of perfection by the masters at Q Entertainment. If you like puzzle games, you simply need to get this game. I don't care if you've got other stuff to do, none of it will be as thrilling as...

Addicting block clearing action ; New Avatar powers ; Graphics pop off the screen ; Great soundtrack

No Vs CPU Multiplayer option ; Poorly implemented touch controls

Since it blasted its way on to the market on the PSP, Lumines has established itself as a force to be reckoned with. With its slick visuals, throbbing techno beats, and hypnotic puzzle action, it stands out among the crowded field of look-alike...

LUMINES Electronic Symphony

 

Humans love blocks. It might not be something everyone realises, but we do… think about it. What are some of the most popular games of all time? Pong… moving blocks. Tetris…falling blocks. Breakout… move a block to remove other blocks. The list goes on.

Lumines: Electronic Symphony: A new musical voyage

 

Lumines has been away from handhelds for a while, appearing in two console-exclusive titles, but both failed to re-capture what made the original game so incredible back during the PSP's launch in 2004. And here we are, eight years later, with Lumines:...

Gorgeous presentation, new modes and options are nice, the basic formula is still addictive

Not many substantial changes to the gameplay

Lumines: Electronic Symphony Review

 

Party hard with this rhythm-fused puzzler.

While not quite as challenging as the first Lumines, Electronic Symphony is just as addictive. The soundtrack is great, with a perfect variety of different electronic genres. The addition of online leaderboards will keep you coming back to the main...
