  1. An endlessly inventive and incredibly addictive game.
  2. Not only is Meltdown bigger and better to look at though, but it offers new and compelling scenarios, and proves more appealing to new players as well as a more consistent proposition for hardcore fans - not everyone's going to be able to beat the incredibly punishing latter levels, but there's still hours of fun to be had beforehand.
  3. Intrinsically simple yet consistently challenging, with slick presentation, attractive aesthetics and level designs that always raise an appreciative smile in tandem with any sense of puzzled frustration, Mercury Meltdown is the perfect game to dip in and out of whenever on-the-go.
  4. Mercury Meltdown finally realizes the potential that the original game, Mercury, left unfulfilled.
  5. As it is, it's a beautifully made, unique, and sadly under-the-radar title; it's exactly the sort of unique experience the PSP needs, and something I can't imagine the DS quite matching (sorry, Super Monkey Ball: Touch and Roll).
  6. This is a great game to test your brain and your dexterity, and with improved load times and a great design where levels only last a minute, Mercury Meltdown is a great title for the gamer on the go.

    Fun! Every Part of the game has it's own unique style, and the amount of hazards and objects has a massive range. The 5 party games is Fun! Every Part of the game has it's own unique style, and the amount of hazards and objects has a massive range. The 5 party games is definately a good contribution to the game, especially playing 2 player. I have already passed most of the game, but it is REALLY hard to get 100 percent completion, giving me a super duper challenge! Full Review »
