    Puyo Puyo Champions is a near perfect for hardcore puzzle game enthusiasts, but casuals may want to start elsewhere.

    Puyo Puyo Champions ably covers the essentials of the series at a great price point. The inclusion of the Fever ruleset provides something of interest for veteran players and the most enthusiastic of new fans created by Puyo Puyo Tetris, and should be at least considered for any party game library. However, the lack of other single or multiplayer modes or a real tutorial make this less of a definitive entry-point or second helping for newly created casual fans than it perhaps could be.

    Puyo Puyo Champions is very fun. Its modes offer hours of entertainment, especially with its online mode, although playing alone is less fun. A game that complements its objectives and stands out in the Switch catalog.

    At its core, it’s still a super fun and well-crafted puzzle game. Despite issues with spinning up new players for the intended online eSports puzzle world, Puyo Puyo Champions has a smooth interface and a decent amount of options. It’s much more streamlined and optimized for multiplayer, though. This is a great option if you want to play this puzzler online against pros or locally with friends. If you crave a more light-hearted romp, Puyo Puyo Tetris is still available on this system and has a daffy story mode. Champions is primarily for the lionhearted.

    Puyo Puyo Champions is a fun, cheap entry into the world of Puyo Puyo, but don't expect to be playing it for very long.

    Puyo Puyo Champions, as its name suggests, first addresses the most passionate who will have the audacity and ability to play it online against fierce opponents. However, despite its multiplayer focus, this new Puyo Puyo is still home to the jovial and fun puzzle game it has always been, in its most fun, colorful and cute look on this date.

And only $10 (£8)! Not the best in the series but it sure is fun! Expand

    Un juego muy bueno para jugarlo en solitario, y grandioso para jugarlo con un amigo y/o rival en modo en linea.

    Le célèbre adage « simple à apprendre, difficile à maîtriser » est la définition parfaite de la série Puyo Puyo depuis plusieurs dizainesLe célèbre adage « simple à apprendre, difficile à maîtriser » est la définition parfaite de la série Puyo Puyo depuis plusieurs dizaines d’années. Que vous soyez néophyte ou hardcore gamer, il n’est jamais trop tard pour se mettre à jouer à Puyo Puyo. Cette série a une régularité certaine dans la qualité de tous ses jeux et Puyo Puyo Champions ne fait pas exception. Que vous préfériez les règles classiques de Puyo Puyo 2 ou celles un peu plus exotiques de Puyo Puyo Fever, vous y trouverez votre compte. Orienté multijoueur compétitif local et online, Puyo Puyo Champions n’oublie pas les joueurs solo et c’est une belle surprise. Moins de 10 euros pour des centaines d’heures de jeux, qui dit mieux?

    I beg of you to get Puyo Puyo Tetris instead of this. While it costs more it offers loads of more content.

    I love Puyo Puyo, but this just feels like a middle of the road release with frills like character selection. Good portable game and worth theI love Puyo Puyo, but this just feels like a middle of the road release with frills like character selection. Good portable game and worth the $5 I spent to get the nostalgia out. The real joy I get out of this game is its infinite mode where once you defeat a competitor a new one jumps in. Otherwise, playing one match and getting kicked out to the title screen is hardly enjoyable, unless you only have 2 - 3 minutes of time. Still better than Mean Bean Machine. Expand
