With over 600 levels, this game has more than enough variety to keep any puzzle fanatic playing for months on end. And when you tack on the Edit mode and the exciting head-to-head multiplay, Bust-A-Move 4 adds up to a complete package that's a welcome addition to any gamer's library.

Puzzle Bobble / Bust-A-Move is arguable the most popular puzzle game of all time, and if you factor in the continuing success of the game as a series then there is no doubt whatsoever. Much of its ongoing success can be attributed to the basic gameplay, which lends itself well to small modifications. While Tetris takes radical departures and never matches up to its original and Bomberman sequels go completely off of the wall into an adventure dramas, Bust-A-Move keeps popping its bubbles in game after game of mind-numbing bliss.

Hey little children, catch your fathers under neck and tell them to go to gameshops and buy this funny, bobbling, creative game.
Cheerful tunes and overly colorful balloons and explosions, as well as unceasing bleats and exclamations from the saccharine-sweet characters, make Bust-A-Move 4 an experience to overwhelm the senses. At times, the stimuli are distracting, forcing a player to struggle to employ good popping strategies. Otherwise, the game plays just fine, and PC owners will enjoy the game's carefree blend of yappy, happy visuals and decidedly strategic contests. The two-player mode (either via the Network or head-to-head) will present bubble assassins a wonderful distraction from the real world, and serves as the game's greatest draw.

Я еще не рассказал о 16 персонажах игры, сюжетной линии, секретных уровнях и боссах, но поверьте, все это не столь важно по сравнению с самой главной чертой этой игры — примитивной гениальностью. Игра затягивает и, хотя не является чем-то сногсшибательным и революционным, однозначно порадует вас в чертовски холодные зимние вечера и доставит удовольствие вашим детям, при условии, что они у вас есть. Аркада — она и в Африке аркада, а в BAM4 геймплей отшлифован годами сиквелотворения и пальцами миллионов приставочных игроков. DIXI.

Nach vielen nahezu identischen Puzzle-Bobble- und Bust-A-Move-Versionen hat Cyberfront nun erstmals eine spielerische Neuigkeit in die Tetris-Variante integriert. Es geht immer noch darum, von oben herabhängende Kugeln zu entfernen, indem man von unten gleichfarbige Kugeln nach oben schießt, auf einigen Spielkarten sind diese nun aber an Seilen aufgehängt. Durch die Gewichte an den Seilenden verändert sich ständig das Spielfeld, so dass endlich Voraussicht vonnöten ist. Ärgerlich: Während eines Einzelspielerspiels tauchen Mehrspielerkarten auf und die unglückliche Tastenbelegung lässt sich nicht verändern. An dem hohen Suchtfaktor ändert dies aber nichts.
Despite its cutesy and oft-lackluster graphics, Bust-a-Move 4 comes across as a wholly addictive and highly entertaining experience. The childlike overtones keep the mood light and lively, though they occasionally prove to be more of an impediment than an advantage. Still, puzzle offerings have always been less about graphical and audio pleasantries than they've been about engrossing gameplay, which this title provides in spades. With over 600 levels, a solid editor and a fantastic multiplayer option, Bust-a-Move 4 proves itself to be more than the sum of its parts, and is certainly a worthy addition to any puzzle-lover's collection.
Es ist das geeignete Spiel, um im Büro die Abwesenheit des Chefs zu überbrücken - aber leider auch nicht mehr.

It's a wasted opportunity because there's nothing wrong with the game itself, and the new features, including the pulley system and chain reactions, work really well. If you've got a P2 then it's worth considering otherwise you may as well forget it. It's a simple game and if the developers can't be bothered to convert it properly, we can't be bothered to recommend it to anyone.

Une vieille rengaine qui déçoit et énerve à force d'être rabâchée. Petite note pour le principe du jeu qui reste quand même un classique mais rien dans ce jeu ne vient flatter l'ego du PC et on assiste là à un très mauvais exemple de jeu vidéo.
