Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I didn't really "dig" Meteos the first time around. Although I understood how the game worked and appreciated the thought that had gone into it, I just didn't have any compulsion to play the game seriously, preferring to scratch about on the screen with the stylus (which is an unfortunately effective strategy) for a few minutes before switching to another game. I sold my copy of Meteos a few months after buying it.

However, this Disney version breathes new life into the game, with lots of fun Disney familiarity from old and new characters (from Simba, through Toy Story, right up to A Nightmare Before Christmas).

The principle of Meteos is that the player uses the stylus to align constantly falling blocks (a tiny bit like Tetris) and launch them off the top of the playfield. The stylus control works well, but, as mentioned, you can get away with clumsy mashing on the screen and still get results. This version of the game is essentially the same but now blocks can be moved left and right, which doesn't fundamentally change anything but perhaps makes it a little bit more accessible and also more difficult to scribble the screen for results (though that tactic does still just about work).

I wouldn't have expected Disney to license their characters to a leftfield Japanese puzzle game like this, but it gives the game a much needed sense of inclusiveness which will attract people for whom the original release was too esoteric.

It's another good puzzle game for the Nintendo DS, this time with nice familiar character designs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Disney Meteos 6 July 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I brought the game for my 7 year old son, who loves it, I must admit that being a tetris fan this did appeal to me as well.
The game didn't dissapoint, its kept my son quiet, I thought it may be a bit "babyish" for him with some of the Disney pictures but the he loves it.
I would say that it has a wide age appeal, both my daughter (14) and other son (12) and myself (37) have enjoyed playing the game.
Its harder than it looks, or maybe its just me!!! the kids didnt agree with me!!
I liked the download and play feature, which meant we could all play at once, a good idea.
For me personally you cant beat tetris, but as this game is aimed at children I think its well worth investing in if your going on long journeys as its guaranteed to keep them quiet for part of the journey at least.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good game made even better! 21 July 2007
By Gary Hilton VINE VOICE
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
The previous review is spot on! The Disney licence does make the Meteos game just that little bit more accessible and those who may have not even been aware of the previous release might just be tempted to give it a chance now - and that can only be a good thing!

Meteos: Disney Magic takes one the DS's greatest puzzle games with a whole new style. Instead of platforming around spaced themed levels or travelling from planet to planet, you'll get to help the Disney characters by moving some falling blocks around the DS's Touch Screen. If you drag three blocks of the same type together, they'll burst into flame and launch into the stratosphere. Apparently, such pyrotechnics help the characters return to their usual selves and restore order. Each level has its own level of gravity and requirements for a successful launch. While some areas allow the blocks to slowly drift around midair, others will force them to plummet hard onto the bottom of the screen. The speed and intensity of the falling can also vary widely. Some levels may force you to create two or three explosions to get the blocks moving anywhere, while others let your targets careen away in a blaze of glory. In order to balance out the challenge, the game allows you to use different items and powers; while slowing down time allows for more block matching, a handy nitro boost can send even the heaviest payload zooming for the sky. The trick is using all of these elements to your advantage to gain the greatest score possible.

While veterans of the original Meteos will recognize the basic gameplay mechanics, Disney Magic has a few surprises of its own.

4.0 out of 5 stars Disney Meteos 13 Aug 2007
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Disney Meteos is not a very complicated game but still entertains you. It is a bit like tetris but you move the blocks around when they land and it has a story line to it. It also makes it good with the fact that the themes to the stages change from different disney storys ( the nightmare before christmas, lilo and stitch, toy story, the lion king and disney) Overall the game is great fun and I reccomend you buy it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Fast Action Game 10 Aug 2007
By divadee
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I have had this game for about a month, and its great.

Its fast actioned and you have to be very quick. It took me a while to get used to all the controls, but now our house cant stop playing it!!

The disney characters in it are great and lots to choose from, not just one or two.

All in all i would give it a 4 out of 5
