  1. While hardcore PC fans will find this game too simple for their taste, there is a tremendous amount of appeal to both men and women, and players of all ages.
  2. True to its predecessor, Zuma's Revenge is overall an entertaining game.
  3. Addictive and it's fun, but it is more frustrating and rage-inducing than other PopCap efforts of late. [Feb 2010, p.85]
  4. Puzzle fans, expect to be engrossed. One of the best and most addictive puzzle games ever has now become even better and even more addicting.
  5. Improvements and flourishes make Zuma's Revenge a lot of fun. [Issue#25, p.50]
  6. The game's also beautifully presented. [Nov 2009, p.101]
  7. The right game for five minutes spare time. Like Solitaire you can always have a shot at the game but there is nothing that makes you stick to it.

    Popcap doesn't disappoint like always, another good game from popcap and good way to spent your free time.

    For all Zuma is a repetitive and often frustrating experience; it can be fun and is also strangely addictive. I usually don’t enjoy puzzle or casual games of this nature, simply because they normally look awful and are typically very boring… This game however looks good, it’s challenging and provides entertainment in small doses. However, I’ve never understood why so many games involve matching up 3 blocks of the same colour (this is the same thing in principal). Overall it’s certainly not worth the £6.99 price tag, but picking it up in the sales for a quid or two will certainly not feel like a waste of money! Expand

    This game is still good, but has barely improved since the original. Flashy powerups do not, at the end of the day, make this game more fun to play. The bosses are easy yet frustrating at the same time, and the humour is rarely above mediocre.

    I was somewhat looking forward to this, but worried "what can they possibly change to actually make Zuma more fun?". It turns out the answer was: not much.

    This is a great puzzle game, but not much more to it than shooting balls, in basically every game mode. Not much to it, but fun, addictive and cute 6/10. Expand

    This is a solid puzzle game. But I sometimes find the game way too easy and boring. They need to increase the degree of difficulty and the excitement of the game...... Expand
