    I can forgive some of the lame cartoon characters that serve as the guides in this game - they become so arbitrary in comparison to the whole package. And what a package Peggle is. The pachinko-on-drugs concept is simple. The execution is fantastic. It was a ton of fun on the iPod, and on a powerhouse like the XBox 360, the bells and whistles make this game even better.

    Although i would never let my mates see me on a game called 'peggle' i have to since it has been the best £8 I've spent in months. It is devilishly simple but similarly addictive in the way that you will go on at 1pm and get off at 5pm expecting it to be 3pm! The 'guides' and menu layout are slightly over childish but apart from that, the childish nature of Although i would never let my mates see me on a game called 'peggle' i have to since it has been the best £8 I've spent in months.

WARNING do not get this game if you have important exams! It will be responsible for you working in Macdonalds when your older. Expand

    Peggle is a masterpiece without question. It perfectly blends the hardcore with the casual into an addicting experience. I give few games perfect 10s, but Peggle most certainly deserves it. Peggle is simply oozing with personality. The colorful and expressionist art style really blends with the characters who accompany you.

The colorful and expressionist art style really blends with the characters who accompany you. Not to mention the music that beautifully walks the line with beauty and humor. Of course we play Peggle for its simple but masterful gameplay. Simply shooting balls into pegs has never been this fun. It remains strategic while adding a healthy dose of an arcade feel. And when you nab that slo mo sequence and hit the last peg along with a flourish exit, this game exceeds more than the sum of its parts. Peggle comes with a ton of replay value as well. With this package all tied together into a game that is polished and outstanding, I'll be more than happy to keep playing time and time again. Expand

  1. The game is incredibly colorful with a great mix of animation and sound to satisfy players of all ages—it’s not dumbed down for kids and it’s not loaded up with sophisticated gameplay concepts that only adults can take in. Most of all, though, it’s the combination of simple gameplay, challenging action and cartoon-like graphics that makes it highly appealing.

    Peggle is pure happiness distilled into a low-cost digital download.
  3. Simply put, this is a once-in-a-generation puzzler, much like Tetris. It’s Xbox Live Arcade’s finest offering, and it can be both mindless and high-level strategic fun. Don’t miss it. Find an internet connection and create an Xbox Live Silver account if you have to; it’s that sublime.
