  1. The Wrath of Set not only stands out amongst its higher-profile peers but actually surpasses some of them in terms of its simplistic addictiveness.
  2. Puzzle fans will enjoy Luxor but its lack of variety limits its appeal to other gamers.
  3. You can’t go wrong with Luxor if this type of game is your cup of tea but there are better alternatives available on the PSP.

    The core gameplay is sound, but Luxor: The Wrath of Set just doesn't have the addictive quality it needs to keep people entertained consistently.
  5. Luxor provides the only Zuma like experience on the handhelds right now, so if you want some ball blasting puzzle game fun, this is your answer.
  6. This is essentially a Zuma clone on the PSP for $20. It’s light on options and doesn’t have the same style as Zuma does, but if this is the kind of game you’re looking for, it does the job.
  7. Luxor: The Wrath of Set isn’t a bad game, but it just seems a bit thrown together. You can just as easily play this game or dozens like it on countless other formats, even your cell phone or PDA.
  8. Though Luxor is addictive, it ultimately lacks the oomph, variation and a multiplayer mode that would help to make it an all-around great game.
  9. 60
    After a couple of hours, the gameplay wears thin and desire to play more withers up and dies.
  10. Fun for a while but lacking in replay value, Luxor is a good puzzler that doesn’t last.

    Luxor remains a quality take, if mostly derivative, on its little piece of the puzzle genre. While the lack of options make the game's $29.99 tag a little much, Luxor provides the kind of pick-up-and-play gaming that's not as common on PSP, especially compared to what's commonly available on DS.
  12. 60
    The gameplay is addictive and worth going through many stages with, and the presentation has some surprising depth to it. Just don't expect an Egyptian tomb filled with extras and you'll feel right at home with this budget purchase.
  13. Luxor: The Wrath of Set's uninteresting gameplay and lackluster presentation don't do anything to set it apart from other, better puzzle games available for the PSP.
  14. This is a definite pass, even for those casual game junkies out there.
  15. Luxor is a decent puzzle-action game who's only real crime is being dull after about an hour.
  16. 40
    If you have a burning urge to spend $20 and have already gone through the other puzzlers on the PSP, Luxor the Wrath of Set isn’t the worst puzzle game out there. It’s just really uninspired.
