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.

    Did I mention Lumines?

      Hmm. Your ideas are intriguing to me and I wish to subscribe to your newsletter.

    I like the look of it, but it costs as much as a full price game, and that tap cheating looks really annoying lol.

    One of my day one games if for no other reason than nostalgia of playing lumines day 1 on the PSP. Good times.

    Is this just a case of the programmers not adapting the touch component of this game very well?

    Sounds to me like every Vita game is offering a button control scheme along with a touch/motion scheme. I really hope that trend continues.
