  1. Those with PSPs will likely want to check out "Lumines II" instead.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

    The game remains as excellent as ever, and at $19.99 the price is definitely right. While it's not for seasoned vets, Lumines Plus should be a great buy for folks who are wondering what the excitement's all about.

    Cheap and cheerful, but playing in your front room just seems...odd. [June 2007, p.85]

    It's about time a packaged, mostly complete, somewhat enhanced version of the original classic puzzler was made available and, despite the slight gripes, there's still countless hours of puzzle fun to be had in this economic, attractive package.
  7. Lumines Plus is for those who enjoy a puzzle game with a pulse.
  8. 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.
  9. The visuals and audio could have been better, as could the track list, but what's here is certainly worth the $20 asking price.
  10. With a sequel already released on the portable console with a bevy of new features, it's a shame that Lumines Plus couldn't have lived up to its name and actually included something new beyond an additional skin or two.
  11. It won’t dethrone Tetris from the pinnacle of puzzle games, but every royal family needs a hyperactive little brother and Lumines Plus fills that roll nicely.
  12. A great puzzle game for the PS2, check it out!

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