Lumines stands absolutely as one of the brightest stars in the puzzle field in a long, long time. Q Entertainment hooked up winning gameplay to enticing visual and musical compliments, and North American publisher Ubisoft wisely left the game the way it was designed to be, fixing just the little glitches on a game that could have been entirely overhauled for western audiences. But in a genre that prides itself on minute-to-learn-lifetime-to-master gaming, we have seen a number of people still not get the game after that initial minute. We've also seen players, dedicated and adventurous gamers, not find the spark that would encourage them to invest a lifetime of play into the game. Most puzzle games are unilaterally love-it-or-leave-it, but perhaps because of high expectations and some features left wanting, this one is more an acquired taste.
