  1. A solid 3D Othello, tic-tac-toe kind of a game. [Feb 2003, p.101]
  2. The use of some power-ups makes the task slightly easier, but this game is challenging.
  3. 69
    A sometimes overwhelming game that lacks the simplicity of the genre's most addictive titles.
  4. The music is funky and the graphics are fresh and frenzied.
  5. Is it addictive? Yes. I'm a "Bust-a-Move" junkie and I found that habit-forming gameplay in this game too.

    The way the game taxes your mind isn’t necessarily enjoyable, and many times you’ll find yourself falling back to simple tactics just to survive, instead of creating elaborate, elegant combos.
  7. It very quickly becomes tedious. Only look into this if you are a hardened puzzle fan.
  8. Though the game draws inspiration from some of the more respected second-string puzzle games out there, Super Bubble Pop offers neither their depth nor their long-term appeal.
  9. Since matches can be made only through stacking, game play can be limiting and monotonous. [Feb 2003, p.157]
  10. The gameplay is fun, yet control issues and repetitiveness really gets on your nerves after a few hours. The lack of extras also hurts the replay value in a major way.
  11. Another gripe is the 3D playfield. It's almost impossible to see the balls behind the balls that are in the front.
  12. 30
    Not even in the same league as AAA puzzle offerings like "Bust-A-Move."

    A decent puzzle game with crazy music that will keep you hanging on, on those overwhelming part of the game.
