  1. Picross makes the jump to 3D better than many games, although it's still not quite the perfect puzzler.
  2. There's no denying that Picross 3D is a diverting and addictive game, but at the same time it fails to surpass its two-dimensional predecessor.
  3. Picross 3D adds up nicely with an entertaining game with lots of hard nuts to solve." It should have been "Picross 3D adds up nicely with an entertaining game with lots of difficult puzzles to solve.
  4. A very addictive puzzle game, although the first entry in the series was a bit better.
  5. Like many games before this one, moving from 2D into 3D can be a tricky proposition. For every successful endeavor there are countless failures. Luckily, Picross 3D manages to come into its own as a fun puzzle game, even if it shares very few game play traits with its older brother.
