Review – Peggle Nights

 

Peggle_nights

Publisher: PopCap Games, Sony Online Entertainment (SOE)
Developer: PopCap Games
Platform(s): Xbox 360, PC, Mac OS X, Playstation 3, Xbox 360
Genre: Puzzle

The Scoop: Designed for gamers of all ages, Peggle Nights is the latest game in the Peggle series from PopCap Games.  I’m warning you now, this game is made up of pure addiction.  Whether you’re a casual or hardcore gamer, you’ll find yourself losing hours on end in the world of Peggle Nights.

The Setup: Peggle Nights is a pachinko-style game where you start off with 10 marbles, and send each one onto the game board that is filled with multicolored pegs.  As you hit a peg you’ll earn points and send your marble flying in a different direction in an attempt to knock out more pegs.  Your goal is to rack up as many points as possible while attempting to clear the board of all the orange pegs.  And to add to the excitement is a moving bucket at the bottom of the game board.  Get your marble in that bucket and a free marble is all yours!

And we can’t forget about the characters! To help you along the way of conquering these orange pegs are charming characters such as a unicorn, and alien, and a pumpkin – each with unique personalities and abilities.

What’s Hot:

Uhm, everything?

The green and purple pegs are your best friends.  Green pegs will grant you special abilities while the purple pegs give you bonus points.  The sound effects and music completely add to the overall feel and charm to the game.  I love when you finish a board and “Ode to Joy” kicks in with the fireworks. Sounds crazy? It is. And I love it.

  • Peggle Nights adds 60 new levels, so returning players can experience the same addicting game but with new game boards!
  • Four game modes which include: Adventure, Quick Play, Duel, and Challenge.
  • Some of the boards get pretty challenging.  If you think you breezed by the first couple stages, just wait till the pegs start moving and you start running out of marbles. It’ll happen, trust me.
  • Recently released for both the Playstation Network and Xbox LIVE Arcade, console gamers can now enjoy the latest game in the Peggle series.

What’s Not:

Don’t go into the game thinking you have complete control of where the marble goes.  You get to aim and fire the marbles, but that’s it! After some simple physics, gravity, and a bit of luck, you may end up knocking out a handful of pegs. Or you could completely miss everything on the board.  This is definitely a game of chance.

Aside from new levels, Peggle Nights doesn’t really add anything different or innovative to the Peggle series, but at the same time,  it really doesn’t need to!

Final Verdict: Simple, fun, addicting, and easy to pick up and play.  Peggle Nights (any any Peggle game in general) is a great game that any member of the family can enjoy. This is one of those games you’ll  plan on playing for 10 minutes, and find yourself still bouncing marbles off of colored pegs an hour later.

Peggle Nights is available for download from PopCap Games for $19.95.  You can even get both Peggle and Peggle Nights for only $24.95.

Peggle Nights is also available through the Playstation Network for $4.99 as well as an add-on content pack through the Xbox LIVE Arcade for 400 Microsoft points ($5.00)
