  1. All of this wonderful single player and multiplayer comes polished in an aforementioned pastel graphical environment at which you can't help but smile.
  2. 85
    The gameplay is what makes Puyo Pop Fever a brilliant design. It's a timeless design that works well in a handheld environment, and it's immensely addictive when you discover the mechanics that can wipe out a chunk of the filled bin in a single shot.
  3. The main single player does have a weak story line, but the multiplayer is a total riot.
  4. 80
    This is undoubtedly the best Puyo title yet, giving you both old-school gameplay and new, along with well-rounded multiplayer and challenging difficulty.
  5. If you can tolerate the forcibly cute presentation, you'll find Puyo Pop Fever to be a solid, addictive puzzle game.
  6. The single player experience is good enough to practice on before you go into battle with your friends, but the battle itself is where the action is at.
  7. Despite its reputation as a Japanese classic, the real puzzle about Puyo Pop Fever is who needs it on DS?

    First of all this is a great game. It is the most import friendly game out now. I have had the Japanese version for a while and the whole First of all this is a great game. It is the most import friendly game out now. I have had the Japanese version for a while and the whole game has been converted to English. The Menu's all the text and voiceovers. The game could have had a worldwide release as it is! Don't wait, get the game now, multiplayer is where it's at on Puyo Pop -upto 8 players can play at once on one game card plus you can see all the other players screens during play so you can keep an eye in their tactics. Fantastic game. Expand

    A solid tetris/puzzle-fighter type game. Similar gameplay mechanics... the fever mode adds a nice twist. Controls are easy and intuitive... A solid tetris/puzzle-fighter type game. Similar gameplay mechanics... the fever mode adds a nice twist. Controls are easy and intuitive... the sounds, some of the most annoying ever. It's a pretty fun game in itself, but, unless you know someone else with a DS, don't expect to play this one past a week. Expand

    Really fun puzzler once you get the dynamics but boy does everyone in it have to be so obnoxiously loud and weird? I like manga style, too,Really fun puzzler once you get the dynamics but boy does everyone in it have to be so obnoxiously loud and weird? I like manga style, too, but these developers need to smoke less angel dust. graphics are well done, although 3d would have been nice, at least they r a step up from GBA. Multiplayer kicks ass and gives it another point. id still really give it 7.5 but whatcha gon do? Expand
