  1. Peggle's simplicity is only surpassed by its brilliance. Its many modes and levels are spellbinding, and it ought to be a mandatory purchase.

    Nothing has changed from the XBLA version, but that is not a problem at all as Peggle is a very addicting game that will have you playing for hours. And with the release of Peggle Nights to bring the level count to well over 200(!), that life you had before Peggle, yeah you might as well kiss it good-bye. Welcome to the PSN, Peggle, you will be loved by many.
  3. Peggle is one of those games with universal appeal.
  4. 94
    Highly addictive and with a set of challenges that will keep you going for an age, it's a must-have purchase that no PS3 owner should be without. [Issue#189, p.90]

    Peggle is pure happiness distilled into a low-cost digital download.
  6. It's bursting with content. [Apr 2010, p.96]
  7. Peggle is your best shot if you want to waste some time getting addicted to a puzzle-like game. An appealing gameplay, a tremendous number of goodies and nice graphics will convince you.
  8. 80
    If you already own it, there's nothing new here, but it's the same incredibly addictive game with all the noises and the Ode to Joy and all those great things, making it definitely worth picking up otherwise.

    Do not be fooled! This game is more Puddle than Puzzle, and shallower still. There really is NOTHING to do except aim and shoot; and once you've let the ball loose there is absolutely NOTHING to do except wait and watch. Hell I'd take pinball over this game anyday. Multiplayer is badly executed and boring, no real thought or strategy required to play. The only decent part is the presentation. If you really like puzzle games, stick with Critter Crunch, Shatter, or any other one. Don't waste 10 bucks on this crap... Full Review »

    Peggle is basically a narcotic disguised as a very pleasant game. as a single player game it's pretty fun, but 2-4 multiplayer can be very thrilling! it's a shame that it suffers from many bugs when players attempt to join mid-game and it freezes or just lags for and extremely long time, which in a game like this can seem like an eternity when it's only one to five minutes, it can be very frusturating. without this flaw the game would easily be a 10/10 in nearly every aspect.
