  1. It's at times a blissful experience, and at times a total joy, but at others it's frustrating, and shallow.
  2. Bliss Island is about as uninspired as mini-game compilations get, with a flavourless selection of challenges and a half-hearted attempt at adding charm and character.

    As a free Flash game, Bliss Island would be mildly entertaining, but in light of Live Arcade's more engaging offerings, it just doesn't cut it here. [June 2008, p.81]

    Okay, these so called professionals all base the game on the plot, uhh, just playing the demo or watching the trailer will immeadiatly tellOkay, these so called professionals all base the game on the plot, uhh, just playing the demo or watching the trailer will immeadiatly tell you this game isnt about plot, the reason i like this game iscause it is a casual game where you can feel like you can finish it, you know carrying on through the adventure mode little by little, its not meant for the hardcore, while more gameplay mechanics would of been nice (just using the stick and a button is definatly over used) but the real reason this game is fun, the price, its just £3 ($5) and considering a hell of alot of worse games cost more than double this on live arcade you could do alot worse, the only thing blocking this from an 8 is the online community is dead, unfortunatly!
