Best played against a fellow human bean (couldn't resist it, sorry), it's simple, solid, addictive, timeless fun that hasn't really dated like so many of the games you'll find in retroland.
IGN (Dec 11, 2006)
Discriminating gamers of the 16-bit days may argue that the SNES Kirby's Avalanche is a superior representation of the Puyo Pop puzzler design. But the differences between it and Dr. Robotnik's Genesis edition aren't major or important enough that fans should wait and hope for it to appear on the VC roster. Go ahead and grab this download, puzzle people. Nintendo's being nice, so we should respect that niceness.

Se procuram algo deste género e com uma aposta clara na componente multijogador, podem considerar esta proposta da era Mega Drive como uma aquisição segura. Puyo Puyo é superior, mas se são fãs do vilão de Sonic, então não deixem passar a máquina impiedosa de grãos de Robotnik ao vosso lado. Se não têm companhia, o caso muda de figura, mas mesmo assim encontrarão um desafio acima da média que vos irá consumir até chegarem aos merecidos créditos.

The design is clearly intended to encourage two-player competition, and longtime puzzle genres fans will tell you that Puyo Puyo is one of the best head-to-head games ever crafted. Two Wiimotes are sufficient to get your multiplayer game on here through the VC, where the Dr. Robotnik version of Puyo has held up well.

Wie den meisten guten Knoblern konnte die Zeit auch Mean Bean Machine nur wenig anhaben, sodass der Titel vor allem für Multiplayer-Fans immer noch außerordentlich empfehlenswert ist – sofern Eure Spielkameraden Eure Begeisterung für diese Sorte Spiel teilen.
