"Polar Panic is an innovative game that delivers the thrills, but never truly passes the mark. While Story Mode is corny and can be skipped altogether, Survivor Mode is unfortunately a missed opportunity that could have made Polar Panic a shining star of its respective genre. With that said, Puzzle Mode is what makes Polar Panic one hell of a fun game. As a complete package, though, it's hard to justify spending $10 for a game that excels in only one game type and has no online multiplayer whatsoever. But if you're looking for a new puzzle game to give your brain an exercise, Polar Panic, without a doubt, deserves to be checked out," says Loading Reality in their review of the new Xbox Live Arcade title Polar Panic.
