    o.k.

    This game could have been good but lacks depth and is boring. The basis is so simple, and the game modes are so limited, i picked it up played the tutorial and said "i will play this later." The game shows a good idea on... Read Full Review

    Deserves better

    In my opinion, this game is one of my favourites - although the graphics are dull, it's a great puzzle game good for people who need a hard puzzle to chill out. The game has 4 different modes, each of which are unique... Read Full Review

    Polarium- Almost a Good Game

    If you like puzzle games, Polarium is definatily worth a purchase. If you aren't wild about puzzle games to begin with, you will probably be disappointed with this purchase. It is very easy to learn to play and the tuto... Read Full Review

    An entertaining, if a little underwhelming puzzle game.

    Polarium was one of the original DS games. The price dropped all the way down to $5 after about 4 years of release, and I decided it's about time to check it out. The concept of the game is to create lines of either whit... Read Full Review

    Not enough to keep you hooked.

    Polairum was one of the first puzzle games to be released on the Nintendo DS, coming out a couple of months shy of Meteos. Perhaps this would lead one to believe that the two games might almost be like close cousins, how... Read Full Review

    Some good bits and bad bits.

    Polarium is a game that gives you innovation that could not be pulled off properly on another system. Unfortunately, it has a few problems that hamper it's gameplay. Graphics wise, Polarium isn't pretty. It's mad... Read Full Review

    Polarium is no METEOS but if you like puzzles and multiplayer you should buy this game.

    Polarium is not this year's Max Payne. It doesn't even compare to Meteos and defentily not to Tetris. This game makes great use of the Touch Screen the buttons will not do anything once you select Polarium on the DS Menu... Read Full Review

    Polarium has a potential that never sees the light of day.

    (edited review) Polarium. This is a new puzzle game for the DS. In it, you must use your stylus to create lines. When you've made a line, you tap the end of it, and all panels that the line selects flip over. This is ... Read Full Review

    While it looks simple & the concept is simple, this game provides hours of challenging gameplay.

    Polarium is a unique puzzler where you flip over tiles trying to on one move get all the rows to be one color to destroy the tiles. There are 3 main modes of play... Challenge- this is kinda like a tetris part, where ... Read Full Review
