  • Summary: Lumines Plus is a pulsing new version of the original PSP system game for the PlayStation 2 computer entertainment system. Lumines Plus includes new skins and a two-player battle mode. [BVG]

  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. 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.
  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. 55
    The good thing is, the game is priced as a value title, and for puzzle fanatics, or for fans of the PSP titles, this is a great package. But honestly, playing Lumines made me long for the intricate simplicity of Tetris, and it's just a reminder that perfection, once achieved, can be hard to top.

    If you are like me and think having a PSP is totally unecessary, then Lumines Plus is a solid game. Most of the complaints are that it looks just like the PSP game, and thats fine all well & good but if you don't own a PSP like me, this game is totally Addicting and great. Collapse

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