4 Elements is a pleasure from start to finish. Packed with hours of enjoyment, it will cast its spell over all who enter its world.

Wonderfully presented, generally addictive, and filled with good intentions, 4 Elements is a very, very happy game. That it all boils down to a series of Match 3 puzzles isn't really an issue because Playrix's version of Match 3 is so visually and practically impressive that the excellent presentation is mere icing on the cake. It's even difficult to peg an ideal demographic for the game because it'll grab the attention of adults as much as it will children. A must-have for Match 3 and puzzle addicts and anyone who's forgotten that gaming magic can be found where you least expect it.

If you go into 4 Elements HD with an open mind, you'll find a worthwhile game well worth the price of admission. It's not a game that will take you an incredible amount of time to complete, nor will it keep you coming back for more once you do blaze through the entire experience. But that's the idea. As a bite-sized, relatively cheap PSN game, 4 Elements HD will keep you busy for a couple of weekends or for a week after work. And what more could you ask for?

Overall, then, a nice try: plenty of variety, beautifully slick implementation, lovely graphics, good music and sound, but sadly not as much actual game as many players would be hoping to find. I hope there's a follow-up along similar lines that provides more of a challenge.

Still, if you like a little Bejeweled, or something like it for your PS3, then 4 Elements is for you. You can blow up blocks, check your scores on the online leader boards and stomp your controller into expensive little pieces of plastic as you time runs out and the sheer mind-melting complexity of the whole thing finally gets the better of you. But, isn’t that the whole point of a good puzzler?

Même s'il peut sembler plutôt anodin de prime abord, 4 Elements est un puzzle-game de qualité qui se révèle extrêmement prenant à jouer. Partant d'un concept simple comme bonjour, le soft se complexifie progressivement et donne envie de multiplier les parties pour aller au bout. Pour 15 euros, voilà une bonne opportunité de se détendre sans risque de prise de tête.

Overall, 4 Elements HD makes for a mildly entertaining foray back into the world of match three puzzles games, and if you’re a fan of those, you really can’t go wrong. Like others in the genre, it’s the type of thing you’ll want to work through in small chunks, as a quick break from something a little more intense in life. With a mere $10 price tag, 4 Elements HD provides plenty of gameplay, but it’s still something I would only recommend to people who are already fans of the genre, and perhaps people looking for another game to utilize their Move controller with.

On the whole, 4 Elements HD is a welcome break from any intense action and/or time consuming narrative games and can be enjoyed by both competitive and casual gamers of all ages. Unfortunately, it has arguably failed to capitalize on where other match three games also fell short and that is an entertaining storyline to warrant 64 levels. It is something that was explored within the game but could have been developed more into a possible game changing feature. For those that love the genre it will hit the spot and bring a refreshed take on the familiar match three formula, but for those who are new to the genre it can, at times, be pure tile matching monotony.
