It amazes me that square enix had any part in this game. This game feels like the kind of short simplistic game that you would normally find on a cell phone. The graphics are nice and big and my mother can see and play this game because of that. Other than that, she actually preferred the old SNES version which looked almost as good and had way more versatility(except for the old password feature). I don't even particularly think the 3D graphics were worth the rental for me. It might have been worth it if they had made it a download like let's golf 3D for no more than $5.99.

Fans of the original title will remember this familiar gaming experience as a time well spent many years ago. To be honest, not much has changed from the original installment to now. With added graphics sporting the beautiful screen of the 3DS well, Bust a Move; Universe quickly looked promising. The game adds a storyline, giving players boss fights which are done by firing bombs the same way the normal game is played. Despite the increasing difficulty, the boss fights start to look all too familiar and repetitious. For more casual gamers the title adds little to the original game play making it easy to simply pick up and play.
Over all Square Enix brings us a decent puzzler with a nostalgic feel, great for any player to just pick up and play.
There is no part of this puzzle game that is worth 40 dollars. It is something I can play for free on Pogo. A lot of the game isn't obvious off the bat and the tutorial really doesn't show much. The specials aren't explained and 3D is very weak. If you like this kind of game, renting it is cool as long as you only keep it for a few days and send it back. If you don't like puzzle games, then don't bother with this.
