    Square Enix's puzzle game will grab fans of the genre, but with such a meager feature set it may not be able to hold onto them for long.
  2. Yosumin LIVE is a fun, catchy and adorable puzzle title.
  3. Simplistic to a fault but still one of the most addictive, and fairly original, puzzlers of the year.
  4. The issue becomes whether you’ll try to fight through the hurdles (natural and unnatural) to milk some fun out of it. It’s in there, but it doesn’t seem as if it’ll sustain you for very long.
  5. The concept at the core of Yosumin Live is robust, but it fails to hold up under extended play. Either Square Enix has happened upon a brilliant mechanic that has yet to fully bloom or one that it has been unable to sustain. The scant progression Yosumin has made in its transition from webgame to XBLA release indicates that perhaps it is the latter.
  6. This lacks the depth of an Eets: Chowdown or, of course, a chess title, putting it well down the list of Live Arcade puzzle titles alone. Sigh. [Issue#48, p.99]
  7. This color-matching game is too random and shallow to entertain for long.
