  1. With solo modes consisting of time trials, endurance tests or battles against virtual players, and wickedly competitive multiplayer games, Meteos is the most compellingly perfect puzzler we've played in years. [NGC Pocket]

    The originality is a key factor to what makes it so great. Meteos is the killer app for the DS.
  3. Meteos is without a doubt, THE puzzle game to own for the Nintendo DS. It's unique, can only be done this way using the touch screen, is a fantastic presentation for the graphics and audio, and a full, exciting game can be played with just a few minutes to spare.

    Tetris re-visited for the 100th time, but this time it is worth it. Fast and furious rain of little cubes drown you before you notice and it drives you mad - and makes you play the game over and over and over again. [Nov 2005]
  5. It turns out that randomly scrubbing the screen with your stylus in moments of panic may inadvertently link things up and get you out of a tight spot. It's divided opinion of the game, with a lot of people holding off giving it top marks because they see scrubbing as a fundamental flaw.
  6. Though it doesn’t quite match the intricate strategies of Lumines, it isn’t supposed to. Meteos manages to be interesting and engaging without feeling like just another Tetris clone. Not bad for a new drug.
  7. Perfect for a hand-held, Meteos provides an engaging challenge even during brief sessions.

    I cannot recommend this game enough. An amazingly clever puzzler that has a great range of skill. The card is crammed with levels and I cannot recommend this game enough. An amazingly clever puzzler that has a great range of skill. The card is crammed with levels and features that will take you years to get everything! Even if you have done everything, you still wont put it down. I have had this game forever, And I still haven't gotten bored. The graphics are nice and smooth, and the open sequence graphics are the best DS graphics I have seen. The music is awesome, as the mood of the music goes to whats happening in the game itself. 42 different planets all give a different feel. Some, everything goes slower, some, the gravity is super strong! Or non existent! Buy it. NOW. My 2nd favorite DS game. MUST. HAVE. Expand

    Worth every penny. If you like puzzle games, and/or you own a DS, pick this title up as soon as you can. The control scheme is only bad if Worth every penny.

I know a lot of people who say this game is bad. Don't believe them. They are probably just those types of gamers who are only into the hardcore stuff (addicts, if you will) but this game is very fun and addictive! Its a very creative puzzler with loads of innovation, and I was seriously hooked on this game for months! It's my personal favorite DS game! Expand

It gets to a point where all that matters is how quickly you can wave your stylus around to get lucky. Fun, but limited. Expand
