Lumines: Electronic Symphony (PS Vita)

 

Almost seven years after it was released alongside the PSP, is still a must-have game for the system. Its uncomplicated Tetris-style gameplay makes it fun to play for both short and extended periods of time, and its stylish presentation still serves as...

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...

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...

Enter Electronic Symphony, the latest in the Lumines franchise, which brings falling block based gameplay to Sony's new handheld, the PS Vita. This isn't just a Tetris clone though; the developers have taken the basic concept and expanded it massively....

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

 

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...

Dreams of redux.

Ah, beautiful Lumines!; Gorgeous art style and soundtrack; Synthesia design; Avatar abilities

No online multiplayer

Lumines Electronic Symphony doesn't fuss around with twists and turns with the core puzzling concept, sustaining that psychedelic synesthesia which sparks our continued adoration for the series. Merely on an aesthetic level, there's hardly any other...

If Lumines was your drug on the PSP, know that it's been refined and made stronger. This is the hard sh*t, folks. You're in danger of totally crashing and burning with Lumines: Electronic Symphony on the Vita. This is the worst for those who barely...

The way I see it, everyone already loves Lumines, so this review serves no one, especially when you consider that Electronic Symphony is the best one yet with its gorgeous high-resolution visuals, rocking soundtrack, new gameplay mechanics, and awesome...

Forty-three tracks, animated backgrounds with slick special effects, 41 different avatars with game changing abilities, a variety of enjoyable modes

No online multiplayer, imprecise touch controls

New York Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin somewhat reminds us of Q Entertainment's Lumines, originally released in 2004 during the Japanese PSP launch. Similar to Lin, this thrilling puzzle game came out of nowhere to become an instant sensation, easily...
