4.0 out of 5 stars "13 Trophies" should be a horrorfilm title. 25 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I find it hard to believe that it's been 7 years since Lumines first appeared on the PSP back in 2005. Not being much of a puzzle gamer and having never played Tetris (say whaaat!?) I never expected much, but I went ahead and purchased it due to all the positivity garnered towards it. Since then I must say I've never looked back!

Lumines, pronounced Lu-min-ez and not Lu-mines like I believed it was for the last 7 years, is simple in execution yet extremely tricky to master. Blocks, each consisting of 4 smaller blocks of two colours mixed randomly, are dropped from the top of the screen and the aim is to match up small blocks of the same colour into 4 or more blocks of their own (following...?). Added to the equation is what the game calls the Time Line, which is basically a line that clears away all your formed blocks as it passes across the screen. Trust me, the principle is easy. Your goal is to ultimately score as highly as you can before the screen fills up.

What brings Lumines to life, and what the series is perhaps best known for, is the music. Oh, the MUSIC!! As you go about trying to reign as the ultimate Lumines King, the game's track list changes at regular intervals bringing with it new skins, new colours, new background visuals and varying levels of speed at which the Time Line moves and the blocks fall. Believe me, the combination of fast falling blocks and a slow Time Line is not a friendly one. The music is also excellently varied, from well known pop tracks to sweet, soft and mellow beats that makes you believe the world is a gentle place and that everything is going to be okay. That is until you notice your screen is quickly filling up and you realise what a nasty trick the game has just pulled on you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Will keep you hooked 23 Feb 2012
By Shoozle
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Lumines is a classic arcade game now. You make squares out of two different coloured blocks. It sounds simple but it really is hard to master.

The game can control by touch screen or using the buttons. You never have to select the option to use one or the other so you can mix how you like.

Presentation is beautiful. Each song has its own unique theme and background. Song selection is great - particularly like 4AM.

Many different modes available - Voyage plays through every song on the game until you eventually lose. There are no loading screen and the game beautiful transfers from one song to another. Time Attack mode where you can play either 30, 60, 120, 300 second periods. Playlist mode so you can only play to songs that you like. All modes par playlist feature leaderboards with friends/global and weekly/daily to see how you stack against other players.

There are RPG elements where you level up and unlock songs for playlist as well as Avatars that each have their own ability for single and dual matches.

Only main issue is that to use the Avatars ability, you need to get its rating to 100%. To do this you can build up blocks but it is slow. You can use the back touch panel to increase its rate but it makes the game much harder to control.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best Launch Vita game, bar none 7 Mar 2012
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've played every vita launch game now, and this is by FAR the best and the most worth the money. While it may not be the game you use to show off the capabilities of your new Vita to others (That would be Uncharted IMHO,) this is the one you will be playing on the bus long after Uncharted has been completed, shelved and is gathering dust.

The gameplay is easy to learn, but hard to finesse, and the music makes even losing at the game highly enjoyable.

Definetly worth the cost - i can only assume the reviewer who said it should have been a £5-£10 downloadable did not mean in terms of hours/cost ratio, as this game cannot be matched by any other launch game in that regard.

4.0 out of 5 stars Psychedelic Tetris 24 April 2012
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Lumines: Electronic Symphony is the third game in the Lumines series, but the first one to appear on the Playstation Vita. The previous iterations appeared on the Sony PSP and were very popular, although the second game was less revolutionary than the first, and the same could be said for this game, since it doesn't add anything new to the franchise.

The aim of the game is similar to most 'blocks fall from the sky' games, in that you have to organise the falling shapes into squares of four or larger. There are only two different colours of shape, so it doesn't get too tricky until the speed increases during later levels. Once you have arranged four shapes into a square, the shape becomes illuminated and ready to disappear. It is at this point that you have to take into account the second aspect of the game, for along with the falling blocks from the sky, you also have a wavy line travelling from left to right. This line removes any illuminated blocks from the landscape as it passes them, but if you are intending to get large bonuses from bigger blocks, it becomes a matter of skill to build the bigger lumines before the wave comes and wipes them out. While this explanation might seem complicated, the game is actually pretty intuitive and only takes a few plays to become experienced with the core gameplay rules.

One of the key features of the game is the soundtrack, which is comprised of dance and disco tunes, some of which sounded familiar, although they were dance remixes of songs I'd heard before. While I'd happily admit to not liking dance music, I found the soundtrack was so well suited to the gameplay that I would be humming the tunes whilst playing, and even downloaded a few of the better ones from iTunes, which maybe proves that subliminal advertising works.
