  1. Although the new toys fail to entirely justify themselves - and if you can forgive the absence of online options, and look past what many perceive as the heresy of playing the game on anything other than a handheld - Lumines Supernova is probably the fullest incarnation of the game yet available.
  2. Increasing the longevity of the Lumines experience, Supernova also includes a sequencer where you can create your own tracks. It's pretty limited, but offers enough variance to make some pretty unique tracks.
  3. While I think that anyone with a reasonable level of interest in puzzle or rhythm games should absolutely own Lumines, there's really no good reason to collect them all. If you've somehow managed to dodge the series until now, Supernova's a fine place to start. But as someone that's been playing it since it was originally released on the PSP in Japan, I got tired of it almost immediately.

    "I've been playing Lumines Supernova so much that I see orange and white blocks when I close my eyes; that's a good thing, but I can't help feeling like the game could've been more."
    That is so true! I simply loved Lumines II and I have played it nearly 100 hours.
    Lumines Supernova is just like its predecessors Lumines (PSP), Lumines II (PSP), Lumines Plus (PS2) and Lumines Live (XBL).
    Nothing has really changed. You still erase blocks as fast as possible and it still works.
    Is there anything new? Yes. Online stats and a new game mode. Not that much, but it's only 15 dollars, so it's a good deal, especially for those who are new to this series. If you already have Lumines you should consider buying.

    The biggest minus and the only is minor glitches. Sometimes when you start time challenge it says FAILED before you have started.

    If you like puzzle games this is your game.
