Lumines II on PSP


Same Old, Same Old… And Nothing Wrong With That

The appeal of Lumines? It’s quirky, flashy, mesmerizing and oddly comforting once you get good at it. If you haven’t played Lumines before, Lumines II is a great place to jump in, especially because of that extremely attractive $20 price point for a...

Lumines II


Same old Lumines, same old fun.

If there were a problem to be found in Lumines II, it'd come from the lack of innovation when compared to the first one. Everything that made the first title great can be found here, but there's not much, if anything, being improved along. The popular...

Lumines II


One of the PSP's best titles finally gets a sequel. But can a Top 40 musical injection make the game better, or does it hurt it?

Lumines II


While Q Entertainment's latest is really more of an expansion pack than a true sequel, it's a sure-fire winner for the PSP.

A solid update to an instant puzzle classic with lots of cool additions and nearly a hundred skins

No online play or uploadable user-created content; Sequencer feels like it could have more substance

Lumines II Review


How would you improve on one of the best games on the PSP and one of the best puzzle games made in the last decade? Would you enhance the gameplay, add new stuff, give players tons of new options? Give them internet play or a larger board? Switch up...

Beside the impotent addition of music videos, it's the lack of new puzzles, online scoreboards, or just plain online play that really frustrates me about Lumines II. While a couple of the music videos (like "Heavenly Star") are really good, even the...

Lumines II


Along with Wipeout Pure, Lumines was the definitive title for the launch of PlayStation Portable nearly a year and a half ago. Widespread praise for the game was joined by a call for more content, which was promised in its sequel, Lumines II. While the...

New skins with licensed music ; Great puzzle gameplay

No online multiplayer ; Several modes which are similar

Lumines II doesn’t possess any flaws that would prevent purchase; rather, it simply is missing key upgrades to the original game. No online component holds the game back. New skins and a couple of novel modes are welcome, but don’t overshadow the...

Lumines II review for the PSP


The crying game.

Make your own songs!; More Lumines

Exactly same Lumines; Old songs and skins; Bad music videos; Pretend difficulty modes

Somewhere, I know, there's a game developer crying himself to sleep every night, his dreams haunted by the melancholy-colored bricks of what might have been.

Lumines II Review


Lumines II is yummier than five golden-ticket Wonka bars.

Included in the new game are tunes from Beck, Fatboy Slim, Missy Elliot, Gwen Stefani, and Junior Senior, among others. Many of the songs from these tried-and-true artists feel quite old by now; "Hollaback Girl" isn't really tearing it up anymore in...

Lumines II


Although the game plays more or less like the original, the game's menu has been given a makeover that would make even Michael Jackson jealous (let's just pray that his music hasn't been included in the game). Not only does it look radically different...
