Lumines On The Vita Is Cool, Except for the... Tapping Parts

Lumines was one of the best games on the original PlayStation Portable. It was sort of a rave version of Tetris, which was a very good thing. The successor to the PSP is now upon us, and so is a new Lumines, subtitled Electronic Symphony.


The game could stand to be a littler harder, but it's a fun, stylish sequel nonetheless. Check out the video of me playing it, listen to some catchy music and shake your head with me at the inferior touch controles. The tapping gimmick is the worst. Good thing we can stick to the d-pad and buttons. That's the way I do it.

I remember back when I had a PSP and had to buy it. I don't mean that as in, "Oh man, I just wanted that game so badly...", I mean it as in the game had a specific glitch of some sort that allowed me to hack my PSP, and I had to purchase it to exploit that glitch.

I'll be honest. I had absolutely no idea what Lumines was and didn't really care at the time. But seeing how I paid for it, I decided to give it a go.

I had a lot of fun with it, and was glad to own a copy. When I purchase my Vita (No, I won't be trying to hack this one), I'm definitely going to be purchasing this one.
