It is perfect. Whether or not Akihiro Hino and the crew at Level-5 built the world upon the foundation of the puzzles or vice versa, it melds into a cohesive miracle that's greater than the sum of its undeniably fantastic parts. They've already sold millions of copies between the two Japanese releases, and if Nintendo's North American marketing push has anything to say about it, this release will probably follow suit. It's well-deserved as not only have they dismissed the genre trappings of the staid brain training phenomenon but they've created a great game and, more importantly, a great piece of art.
What's Hot: Lush presentation. Puzzle mix is perfect.
What's Not: The sequels can't come soon enough.
