    With single, versus, and three endless modes, and 16 available characters, Fever is as addictive as it gets.

    It may not be much of a looker but it's damn near perfect. Keep in mind this is a budget-price title which makes owning it much more tempting.
  3. A pleasant surprise. It's a game that focuses on having fun and the fact that it stretches your grey matter at the same time is an added bonus.
  4. Those looking for gel-dropping, combo-building good times, whether alone or against a friend, will still find a lot to like here, especially at $30.

    An excellent version of a game people should really own already. [Mar 2004, p.111]

    There's absolutely no excuse for the GameCube version to offer only two-player action when it could so easily be expanded to include four and make full use of all those wonderful controller ports.

    Still, as far as us "grown-ups" are concerned, I expect a lot more from my puzzle games, especially when they come from the normally creative genius that is Sonic Team.

Fever mode is a great addition to the game with pre-set chains making it easier for new players. New art style is cool too.

    The story is alright for a puyo game, not too difficult but not easy either.

    It's a potential classic puzzle game, but totally should have had 4 player.
