    A great way of experiencing Move while we wait for hardcore games.

    It's a shame that the gameplay is so linear because the tech truly is astounding. [Issue#198, p.103]

    This is more enjoyable than it really ought to be, and a great way to convert Move doubters. [Issue#51, p.111]
  4. Tumble's prescence at the Move launch shouldn't be underestimated – it's a very clever game with some really impressive ideas and a main mechanic that sets the game apart from the rest of the line-up.
  5. One of the greatest Move games so far. Great controls and a simple but fun premise.

    Its good price and the scarce catalog of PlayStation Move games are good reasons to buy this puzzle game.

    Tumble isn't anything super special with its austere and generic looks, but it's also a completely competent, decently challenging, motion-controlled block puzzle game.

    Tumble certainly has its flaws but for under $20, it isn't going to break the bank either. Those hoping for the fun times had with Boom Blox will be disappointed, but Tumble is definitely for more serious puzzle gamers.
  9. It shuns the more raucous fun of Boom Blox, but this is still one of the better Move games so far and a good tech demo.
  10. What it does do is offer a tech demo-style example of what Move can do in the basic realm of mini-games.
  11. Tumble is, on the whole, what is expected from a launch title; that is, it demonstrates the technical nuance of the product, allowing users to get to grips with the new piece of kit while enjoying a decent puzzle game. The problem is, it lacks any sense of appeal in its muted visual style and cold, hard exterior, and the game never truly tests for long enough to be satisfying.

It is surprisingly deep as you discover new ways to increase your performance on previously finished levels. The game is challenging, fun, and I couldn't put it down. With a bargain basement price this is a must buy! Full Review »

    this is currently the second best move title out there, and is a welcome reprieve from the arduous arm-swinging tasks in sports champions. ifthis is currently the second best move title out there, and is a welcome reprieve from the arduous arm-swinging tasks in sports champions. if you want something a bit more cerebral and has the move show off its diversity in future puzzle-game projects, look no further. i would strongly recommend the demo to get a taste of this title.
