Visst är det ett problem att vi plöstligt förväntas betala fullpris för något som tidigare har varit nästan gratis, senast som en del i den fantastiska samlingen Sonic Mega Collection. Å andra sidan levererar Sega en solid konvertering (man kan urskilja ögonrörelser hos slemklumparna!) av ett pusselspel i världsklass.

Bon et bien on en aura vite fait le tour mais en y regardant de plus près il n'y a pas grand chose à dire sur ce Puyo Pop. Le titre est loin d'être mauvais mais vu sa durée de vie, son atmosphère pleine de neutralité (pour ce qui est du fun proposé), le jeu de Sega est un puzzle game jouable, mignon mais loin d'être indispensable.

In the end Puyo Pop is an unambitious port of a good puzzle game. It's a testimony to the game's tried-and-true formula that despite the speed and color flaws, it still remains playable and enjoyable to a certain extent. The two-player Bluetooth mode is great fun, but there is simply nothing here that hasn’t been seen before. As a matter of fact, the N-Gage version is weaker than all the previous handheld Puyo Pop’s I've played. While GBA owners got four-player battles (using only one cart) and 15 AI opponents, N-Gage players can play two-player or compete against 12 opponents. I hope the N-Gage has more to offer Puzzle fans than this.

If you're an N-Gage owner in need of some portable puzzle action, Puyo Pop is your best bet, but the N-Gage's approach to this long-running, well-developed series just feels half-finished.

Considering the number of puzzle games we're likely to see on the handheld in the future, you can easily skip this version of Puyo Pop and wait for something better.

Puyo Pop, c’est l’un des premiers jeux de la N-Gage. C’est aussi l’une des premières productions qui a rapidement fait déchanter les fans de la machine. Comment foirer en quelques lignes de code une licence porteuse ? Facile, Sega l’a fait.

There isn't too much that will shock and awe a gamer in Puyo Pop, and it does have an old-school charm. It feels a bit on the low-tech side, but at least the colors are clear and the multiplayer is effective, easy, and straightforward. The stuttering of the graphics and music feels a bit amateurish, but it is unlikely to keep gamers from spending a few hours mastering those little, hapless, exploding pets.
