Destructoid (95) No Vita should be sold with a copy of this game
Joystiq (9/10) My time playing Lumines has been the only time in the last week during which I wasn't panicking. I come out of a 45-minute session feeling rested and kind of euphoric. How's that for an endorsement?
IGN (9/10) If you're buying a PlayStation Vita, you should buy Lumines: Electronic Symphony. It's everything I've loved about the brick-based puzzle game since its 2005 debut coupled with the connectivity of the Vita. Seriously. It's amazing.
