The Bliss is Back, Indeed!

on 4/19/2007

For those who loved Lumines (and I bought it along with my PSP on launch day), this is a wonderful addition. The biggest difference between this and the original is the presence of more recognizable music. For some this is a plus. For others, this doesn't add to the experience. The fact is that as much as I love New Order, the track they included (Regret) has sound effects for the gameplay that aren't as complimentary to the music track. That's really a shame because what Lumines is known for (much like the game designer's other classic title "Rez") is the synergy between the soundtrack and the gameplay. Having said this, the New Order track is the only one that I felt that way about. Everything else is exceptional. I particularly like the added challenge of the video backgrounds during gameplay. Add the fact that many levels have blocks that are animated themselves and you have a real eye-opener. WARNING: DEFINATELY NOT RECOMMENDED FOR PLAYERS WHO ARE EPILEPTIC! Most games and systems warn about the possibility of triggering seizures, but I would be particularly cautious with this title because of the rhythmic flashing throughout the game. These minor complaints aside, this is another gem for a powerful handheld system. It's also a steal here at BUY.COM. I have looked at a number of local retailers and this title has become difficult to find. In fact, a manager at a local GameStop said that they were only shipped two copies when it was released and they never got any more. Furthermore, it hasn't been listed on their site for months. I can't attest to whether or not this title was produced in limited quantities, but I know that it has been fairly difficult to track down through the usual channels. Let's hear it for BUY.COM!
