This is a must-get puzzle game if you own a Playstation, especially if you love puzzle games. Until I see IQ2, I don't think my Playstation will be seeing a new puzzle game until I'm forced to review another lame rip-off. Taito started an original franchise, and they'll be milking it until it's not popular. That will probably be when they get to part 19 or something like that.

Bust-A-Move 4 provides hour upon hour of mega-gripping, brain-busting, bubble-blasting entertainment for all ages of the family. Every home should own a copy. However should you already own one of the past versions then be warned that the gameplay (with a few improvements) remains very similar... busting billions of bubbles.

Ja wat zal ik zeggen: of je haat Bust-a-Move of je bent er gek op of je kent het nog niet. Behoor je tot een van de laatste twee categorieën, haast je dan naar de winkel voor een exemplaar van Bust-a-Move 4. Succes verzekerd!

I övrigt bjuder inte det här spelet på så mycket mera. Taito har nog förlitat sig lite väl mycket bra sitt traditionella bubbelkoncept. Istället för att inse att inga bra koncept är bra koncept längre när de inte förbättras.

Two new gameplay features, the chain reaction and the pulley, definitely deepen the game's strategy, while the control and the overall gameplay remain enjoyable. Visually, the backgrounds behind the game board are less intrusive than in past versions, and the music's only slightly less annoying though more repetitive.
Bust-A-Move 4 is a great diversion from the serious and morose action titles so in vogue as of late. The single-player game has enough characters to achieve a high volume of replay, and for puzzle battles, the multiplayer mode stands among one of the best. Bust-A-Move 4 will be the type of game you play with your non-gaming friends, because it's got so much character and because puzzle games are always respectable.
Bust-a-Move isn't entirely a puzzle game, since it still requires quick hand-eye coordination of a shooter. Still, it's always been a favorite of mine. Unfortunately, the new chain-reactions of this sequel are a bit too much and take away from the overall simplistic nature of the game.

Wenig Neues von den Drachenbrüdern Bubblen Bobblen: Wer bereits den Vorgänger besitzt, erhält bis auf unzählige neue Levels sowie die Blasenwaage als neues Spielelement so gut wie keinerlei Innovation für das Geld, Es scheint somit, als ob das Spielprinzip allmählich ausgelutscht sei. Wer hingegen ein absoluter Bust-A-Move-Novize ist, sollte sich ruhig zu einem Kauf hinreißen lassen, denn vor allem im Zwei-Spieler-Modus ist dieser Tetris-Ableger ein absoluter Klassiker, der in keiner Sammlung fehlen sollte.
Avec ses règles modifiées et confuses, le jeu n'est plus qu'une espèce de feu d'artifice où le joueur, dès qu'il détruit une grappe avec plusieurs billes de couleurs différentes, déclenche des enchaînements. Cela donne des retournements de situations impressionnants, mais finalement le joueur ne se sent plus vraiment maître de son jeu, et verra s'envoler ses illusions et ses copines parties jouer à Puyo Puyo chez le voisin.
