  1. Lumines Plus retains its predecessor's addictive play on the PlayStation 2; providing excellent replay value, featuring numerous unlockable skins and two-player action guaranteed to wear out the ol' Dual Shock 2 controllers.
  2. The Lumines series is a great puzzle game series, but Lumines Plus should not be in your collection unless you don't have and do not plan to purchase a PSP.
  3. Lumines Plus is for those who enjoy a puzzle game with a pulse.
  4. It is practically an exact a port of the original with a few notable exceptions: There are a few Lumines II skins thrown in, the graphics are far less vibrant, and now there is at least five seconds of total silence between skins as the sounds load. Of all of four Lumines games on the market, this one is the least impressive.
  5. PS2 owners without a PSP or 360 should get this in a heartbeat, but know that you’re getting some really worn-out hand-me-downs. PS2 owners with a PSP or 360 should stick to the games on those platforms.
  6. Lumines Plus on the PS2 scores points simply for being a great game and cheap as balls, but alas, this is the frailest version we’ve ever encountered recently (single player, versus, time trial and puzzle mode - that's it), so you know we’ve got to dock it.
  7. PSM Magazine
    The original "Lumines" is one of the standouts of the PSP's game library; however, like "Lumines II," we're suspicious that Lumines Plus is simply a quick way to cash in. [Apr 2007, p.87]

    Okay for a while, and the tunes are great and addictive, but i thought there would be more challenge and inter high score comparison.
