Game Review ( Zuma - iPod Video )

Graphics: 4.75/5 Zuma looks nothing short of amazing on the iPod Video. The graphics are crystal clear with great color effects. Although the game does slow down sometimes, ( rarely ) it looks very, very good.

Sound: 4/5 Better sound than most iPod Video games; there isn't much of it, but what you hear is good. The background music is one thing that draws you into this game a lot just by continuously repeating "Zuma, Zuma".

Control: 3.75/5 Blah... the control. This game seems perfect for the iPod, but the frog in the middle doesn't turn quite on cue with what you are doing with your thumb on the clickwheel. It isn't TOO frustrating really, but it will mess you up ocassionally.

Fun: 4.5/5 Best played in short 15-20 minute bursts, Zuma is still easily the best game you can buy right now off of iTunes. The graphics makes a fun game even better, and the addicting gameplay will help you kill time where ever you go. Sure, Zuma has little depth being as how it has 9 stages, but it is just what you want whether you're on the bus, at lunch, waiting at a doctor's appointment, or anything else, since it is just so easy to jump in and play. Zuma is most definitely worth the $5. Strange how a game for only $5 can be this much fun.
