  1. Mercury Meltdown Remix is a handheld puzzler that feels ill suited for the PS2, but because the underlying puzzle designs are so good, the game still mostly works.
  2. With the wealth of levels, and multiple goals for each, it’s got a lot of replay value that’ll keep you coming back for more.

    There's no need to own both versions unless you're rich or stupid, but this is commendable nonetheless. [Christmas 2006, p.102]
  4. A puzzle game with a simple concept, but woven in a way that ensures its more than often, pretty darn addictive and challenging. It suffers from some dreary missions and generally repetitive nature, but overall, Remix is a pretty decent little puzzler worth checking out.
  5. The developers should be doing as much as possible to engender the title to the player, but aren't helped by trying controls and a clearly rushed and unfinished development.
  6. Thanks to the superior handling of the PlayStation 2 analog stick over the PSP's analog nub, the controls have improved. Multiplayer remains elusive, but this Mercury remains a smooth piece of work.

    A great action puzzle game that controls well and is quite addictive. Well worth the budget price!

    The developers were not able to do what needed to be done to bring it to PS2 right. The control is too soft on the DualShock, the technical showcase isn't bumped up with the added horsepower, the new content isn't needed, the camera isn't ideal, and the multiplayer has been stripped out.
  9. I can’t help but weep a little for what could have been if they’d just included some multiplayer gameplay, though.
  10. It's not an awful game, but it’s not exactly good either. Simply put, Mercury Meltdown Remix doesn’t feel comfortable on the PlayStation 2.
  11. The new levels are a nice bonus, but half the fun of the PSP game was feeling like you'd achieved something when completing a level; on the PlayStation 2 that feeling is all but gone.
