  1. Game Fan
    Underneath the pretty particle effects and the elevator-style muzak, you have not only a nifty diversion, but also one hoohah of a two-player game that deserves more respect than it's getting.
  2. Deceptively simple and incredibly engaging.
  3. Spank!
    It looks sweet and the gameplay is sufficiently untaxing as to be rather therapeutic.
  4. Da Gameboyz
    For the hardcore gamer, Fantavision will get lost in the shuffle of the other big name titles.
  5. Unlike "Missile Command," Fantavision is an out and out puzzle game that offers a less aggressive, oddly soothing game experience.
  6. 65
    Strangely, as Sony's sole first-party game on the PlayStation 2, it's absolutely the most underwhelming, least power-hungry, least impressive tile of the bunch.
  7. Although the game captures a warm feeling coupled with a bizarre sense of "the new," FantaVision, like its flares, burns too bright, too quickly, leaving an empty sort of feeling once you've mastered the basics.
  8. While it tries to take a different gameplay approach, the result is something that is so frantic, players will have a tough time figuring out what exactly is going on...and that's a puzzle we can do without.

    This is the BEST game ever, because Sony only put my name on one game out of all the games I tested.
