The Controller Online writes: "Crazy Machines Elements is an XBLA download that is meant to introduce the Xbox 360 world to the Crazy Machines series. Elements adds just that, elements, to the playing piece set in an attempt to make things more complex. The addition of fire, ice and water don’t seem to be able to help this game be any more interesting. I enjoy a good puzzle but I got no satisfaction out of solving the obvious flaws in these Crazy Machines. Unless you’re the kind of person who likes to rig up complicated contraptions to perform simple tasks, for pleasure, I would proceed with caution."
