  1. The world of Lumines isn't always a pretty place, but it looks much better in motion. Try it. Hey, it's free. [Mar 2008, p.110]
  2. Addictive as hell, with a splash of awesome-funky-cool-o-rama. [Feb 2008, p.83]
  3. Effective time Hoover. [July 2008, p.84]

    Lumines is a beautiful distraction that can be as relaxing as it is challenging. While the base gameplay is enjoyable the few outstanding features are missing from the PC version.

    Lumines is the best puzzle game I have played since that one that starts with a T... It pairs up some pretty graphics and great sound (most of the time) to create a very pleasant puzzle environment. The only major issue I have with the PC version ovre say, Lumines Live, is that you do not have the option for the "booster" sets... at least not as of yet. And as someone has pointed out somewhere before, try it! The demo is free! Expand

    A classic, one of the defining puzzle games of this generation.

    Very addictive gameplay here. It's only missing the multiplayer mode, but I really don't mind this. I'm having a problem with controls in the menu (Steam version), and it lags a little when changing skins, but I believe these problems will be fixed. Great graphics and music. All in all, this is a very good game. Buy it! Expand

    Fun enough puzzler. The dynamic music could be much improved by a few samples that don't sound ripped straight from Dance eJay. The graphics are servicable if sometimes a little distracting, but more could be done to make this port feel like a PC game instead of a stripped down console port. Where's the multiplayer options?

    This is just a horrible game in general. The dev is so bad that wouldn't find to destroy someone's hard work just so their god awful game will make more money.

    DONT BUY THIS, let them lose as much money as possible as they deserve.
