    Puzzle Dimension is a fantastic summer game, one you can play for short bursts to kill a few minutes, or for long stretches if the Danish summer does its usual thing with more rain than sun. It has plenty of challenge without ever getting frustrating.

    If you missed out on one of the finest puzzle games to grace the download scene, then don't make the same mistake twice. Puzzle Dimension demands a place in your heart.

    Puzzle Dimension is a highly enjoyable experience that is remarkably beautiful and totally engaging with its challenging puzzles. The puzzle designs are ingenious and sometimes frustrating, but once you solve them its instant gratification. This is Doctor Entertainment's first release and if their next one is as stunning as Puzzle Dimension I will definitely be on the bandwagon. I highly recommend picking up Puzzle Dimension for some pure fun in a dimension all its own.

    Overall, Puzzle Dimension is a simple, yet fun and addicting game that most people will enjoy. It suffers from a few rare and minor camera issues, the lack of any form of online, and the inability to make custom levels.

    Puzzle Dimension is one of those puzzle games that is perfect for fans of the genre. It's full of charm and challenge, and some levels are so difficult that it's an incredible rush when they're successfully solved. This is not a game for those looking for a casual mind teaser, but it's just about perfect for those who prefer the difficulty level turned all the way up to eleven.

    Addictive like crack-coated Pringles. [Issue#208, p.99]

    There are a lot of different puzzle games at the PlayStation Network and Puzzle Dimension is within the genre a new kind of game. The gameplay is pretty complicated to explain in one sentence, but when you love to play different and pretty hard puzzle games, than Puzzle Dimension is a fine choice.

    Whether you fancy the occasional puzzle or PSN title, or you're a puzzle game addict looking for your next hit, Puzzle Dimension will be the answer to your prayers. With a creative twist on mechanics and a welcomed splash of retro paint, be prepared to say goodbye to many, many hours.

    Puzzle Dimension feels like the old fashioned cousin of Ilomilo, a similarly Swedish spatial puzzler. Its charming retro aesthetic and upbeat chiptune soundtrack give it a nostalgic vibe, while its absence of story and punishing difficulty recall the puzzle games of yesteryear. It's not going to convert non-fans of the genre and its score system is negligible for all but the most die-hard fans, but the actual puzzle design is fiendishly clever, and plentiful to boot.

    Although Puzzle Dimension really needed online leaderboards and a level editor to make it a complete experience, it's still a fun and engaging game well worth the $10 price tag. The levels are masterfully balanced and the visuals are stirring, making for an impressive overall package.

    A simple idea that is acted upon with great focus and substantial ingenuity to produce a complex and compelling puzzle game.

    For puzzle fans, both casual and serious, that are looking for a mind-bending, physics-based experience, Puzzle Dimension fits the bill.

    In general, a fun game with interesting puzzles, but with its load times and other competition in the market, it might not be worth the $9.99.

    It's the beautiful next-gen graphics, music and sounds which the developers can be proud of showing to people, easy and intuitive controls and an "oldie but goldie" game-idea that will make Puzzle Dimension a 3D puzzle platformer, which will definitely stay without equal for quite a bit of time.

    Puzzle Dimension is a beautiful puzzle game where you guide a marble around in a three dimensional labyrinth. The gameplay is good but perhaps a bit too repetitive to be truly great. The PSN version surprisingly lacks online leaderboards, an omission that also subtracts from the overall impression.

    Puzzle Dimension is a simple yet solid game for the PSN, or the PC / Mac for that matter. It isn't hard to figure out in terms of how to play, but some of the puzzles will really push your patience to the limit. Puzzle fans are sure to enjoy Doctor Entertainment's freshman offering.

    The eye-catching visuals and easy controls might draw anyone in, but if you are not in it for the grinding long-haul, you may want to get your puzzle fix elsewhere.
