  1. Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    The gameplay's hardly moved on in more than a decade, but simplicity is the key to Puyo Pop's appeal. An absorbing if not original addition to the handheld ranks. [June 2006, p.86]
  2. AceGamez
    If you have ever been enticed by the simple yet compelling gameplay of Puyo Pop, this latest PSP version is a great way of continuing the habit. But let me warn you now - it's highly infectious!
  3. A pretty standard affair. If you’re a connoisseur of block games or are just on the market for one and don’t particularly care which, then this one is certainly as good as the next.
  4. The single player experience is good enough to practice on before you go into battle with your friends, but the battle itself is where the action is at.
  5. This version of Puyo Pop feels like nothing more than a last ditch attempt to squeeze some money out of a game that has been converted to every platform available in the last two years. It adds nothing - unlike the 8 player mode offered by the DS.
  6. A solid, deceptively intricate puzzler that is best enjoyed against human opposition.
  7. PSM2 Magazine UK
    It's a solid puzzle game that doesn't do anything very wrong. Sadly, nor does it do anything we haven't seen before, and at thirty notes you'd be much better off with top PSP puzzler "Lumines." [July 2006, p.108]
  8. If you like your puzzlers and/or have a soft spot for Japanese/English curios, then you'll probably quite enjoy this. But as a full-price PSP game it does leave a bit to be desired.
  9. As far as block or blob-based puzzlers go, Puyo Pop Fever is perfectly adequate, but the PSP happens to have a few better alternatives: "Lumines" offers a more classy experience, while "Koloomn" is a more original title, and one that will take every brain cell to master.

    I picked it up for £12.99 ($23) which seems about right. An insanely annoying single player story line aimed soley at teenage girls in I picked it up for £12.99 ($23) which seems about right. An insanely annoying single player story line aimed soley at teenage girls in an immensly condescingly manner doesn't quite ruin the game, but does its best. The game play is almost fine, but for some reason the sceens seem to be too small, and don't give you enough time to see what's coming and decide where it should go. I've played numerous versions of this game, and can't quite put my finger on what they've done wrong for the PSP, but it's almost a killer. Try before you buy, or pick it up if it's cheap.
