  1. It's one of those games that's simple to grasp, but bastard hard to explain.
  2. This version, "Bust-A-Move 4," almost makes it, but a few niggling shortcomings prevent it from wearing the "must-have" mantle.
  3. 88
    The BAM series has always been a time-sucker, and this is no exception.
  4. 88
    This is the best looking and most exciting version of "Bust-A-Move" so far.
  5. Each cutesy character speaks a cheery sort of gibberish, and gameplay is littered with enough bleats, chirps, hums and nonsensical exclamations to gag a deceased goat.
  6. A quality puzzle game with lots of replayability, tons of gameplay modes, and a nifty theme that's great for kids and adults alike.
  7. Sure, it's not 3D in-your-face graphics, or a techno soundtrack. But I'll tell you what it is.....fun.
  8. With more hidden features, game modes, and puzzles than you can shake a stick at, "Bust a Move 4" is the next logical step for the venerable Bust a Move series.
  9. It's the perfect game for people who say they hate video games.
  10. Fans of the series will applaud this, but most who have already seen "Bust-A-Move" a dozen other times won't find much new to keep them amused.
  11. It is, however, exactly what most puzzle fans are looking for: a fun, value-packed addictive experience that looks as good as perhaps a puzzle game can or should.
  12. Dreamcast's affordable version of "Bust-A-Move 4" pushes the already great puzzle game to new heights.
  13. As far as graphics and music go, "Bust a Move 4" looks and sounds the nicest of any previous games.
  14. The super-sugary-sweet music and the cutesy characters are enough to bring you to tears.
