But best of all, Luxor 2 is fun and challenging for the entire family. With multiple game modes and skill levels, anyone can lose a few weeks or even months of their lives with the colorful and enchanting style and gameplay that makes Luxor 2 one of my all-time favorite XBLA titles.

I’m happy Mumbjo Jumbo’s Luxor has found its way onto Xbox Live Arcade. Luxor 2 is a perfect addition to the arcades puzzle games. Luxor 2 is an improvement on the original and looks great displayed in HD. Luxor 2 is everything I expected and more and this easily one of the most addictive easy to get into puzzle games on the system with full support of Xbox Live features. If you have the chance take a few moments and try out the demo on Xbox Live, or on the PC, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.

Luxor 2 is yet another quality casual gaming experience for the Xbox Live Arcade. It looks great, it's dangerously addictive, and most importantly the wealth of professionally presented and enjoyable content makes it a value-packed purchase for anyone who likes a good puzzle game. With more and more games like Luxor 2 hitting the Arcade service, the stream of lacklustre retro rush-jobs only looks more mediocre as the days go by.

Playing like a hybrid of Arkanoid/Breakout and Zuma, it should appeal to old-school gamers as well as those looking for a quick pick-up-and-play experience on XBLA. You simply fire colored balls at a moving stream of similarly-colored balls to eliminate them. Nothing fancy, but certainly an entertaining title.

For $10, this Xbox Live Arcade edition is half the price of the PC edition, with an extra mode. Those addicted to Zuma will have another round of life-altering gameplay with Luxor 2. Plan ahead, call family members to let them know you’re going into seclusion, and settle in with this wildly fun puzzle romp.

It should be said that Luxor 2 still sits squarely in the “casual game” space. But it’s every bit as addictive as Zuma, and fans of that game will appreciate a product that feels slightly better produced in just about every way while retaining the same great puzzle action they love.

Despite its lack of originality and simplicity, Luxor 2 is still great fun and works well as a XBLA game. You'll start off playing "just a few" levels and then get sucked into 20 or more without realizing how fast time has flown by. Sure, it's an unapologetic clone, but when you lose yourself, all track of time, and escape fully, that's the sign of a fun game.

With no online play, you probably won’t spend too much time playing this game. If you enjoy mindless puzzle games and have trouble playing Zuma (as I do), this is a title you may want to purchase. I don’t recommend this for the hardcore gamer as you’ll find little to keep your attention.

Fosse uma produção original, "Luxor 2" seria uma adição e tanto ao acervo casual da Xbox Live Arcade. O maior defeito do jogo é sofrer com a concorrência na internet. O exclusivo "Desafio do Faraó" não acrescenta nada ao jogo e algumas fases extras e conquistas não justificam 800 Microsoft Points (US$ 10) para um título que pode ser acessado gratuitamente no PC em centenas de sites. Um modo multijogador cooperativo ou competitivo ajudaria bastante. "Luxor" para Xbox 360 é um excelente quebra-cabeça para quem desconhece o original. Para quem já fez essa jornada, é mais do mesmo.

Heb je Zuma maar vind je er daar niets (meer) aan, dan heb je niets te zoeken bij Luxor 2. Ben je wel verslaafd aan Zuma, dan is de aanschaf het overwegen waard.

That Luxor 2 is an out-and-out rip-off of the puzzle concepts that Zuma popularized some time ago isn't immediately offensive--after all, puzzle games copy one another all the time. The problem is that Luxor 2 doesn't do anything to set itself apart. If you already own Zuma Deluxe on Live Arcade, there isn't a single aspect of Luxor 2 that makes it worth adding to your collection. If you haven't played Zuma, you should just go with that game, since it's the better of the two anyway.

Wer Zuma hat wird bei Luxor 2 nicht viel Neues entdecken. Sonst ein recht nettes Spiel für zwischendurch, welches sich mit der Zeit jedoch als relativ eintönig erweist.

But ultimately Luxor 2 isn't a game that tests your skill, or your intellect; it's a game that tests how much time you've got on your hands. Taken out of its native habitat it loses its sense of purpose. It's a game which just takes up some of your life instead of adding anything to it.
