I kept on thinking maybe this was a Young M.C. game of some sort but then I remembered the first Bust-A-Move at the arcade. This one Is a lot of fun and since no other Bust-A-Move game was ever released for the PlayStation before, you'll have a lot of fun with a fun new puzzle game. Plus, if you're into anime, this one will please you with Its cartoony characters and funny voice clips and background music, lire three different modes of play make for good variety. My favorite mode, besides two-player, is the puzzle game. This Is not one to be finished In one day. For the price I've seen it for at local stores, this one Is a great buy.
I never understood the popularity of Bust-A-Move. That Is, until I sat down and played It. It's an addicting puzzler. I can't resist beating up on Crispin In the Two-Player Mode. The challenge doesn't lie in setting up combos, but making sure your shots line up correctly. It's different, but too easy. I prefer games like Kirby's Avalanche and Baku Baku where you will have to plan fast and hard to combo your opponent. In Bust-A-Move, all you really need to do is to pile up balls on one long leg, bust the top of the line and drop the whole tiling. Too simple, but still fun. Be ready to get frustrated with balls that don't go where you want
Except for its brand-new puzzles, BaM2 is the same game as its predecessor. And that's great news, because the original was one of the most addicting puzzle games ever developed. This game demands more than just tire match-the-color skills that so many other similar games require; you have to be a good shot, too. One carefully aimed bank shot can win you the match. The game offers hundreds of puzzles and a slew of computer opponents to tackle. But the best way to play is against a human opponent. Everyone at ECM has lost a few hours of work time this month after getting sucked into BaM2's Two-Player Mode.
Wlien you are tired of falling blocks, better move to the colored floating spheres. Bust-A-Move 2 takes the original one step further to Include tougher competition as well as the option to play on the Full-Screen Mode filled with more challenge than many mortal men could handle. Tills Is one of the hottest puzzle games that allows players to battle it out by setting up combos and banking shots into tight comers to put their opponents away. Crab a friend and crank the difficulty up and try to force your way through the constantly changing levels. Hiss title will have you bursting bubbles in your sleep.
