Platform: XBox 360
I love Zuma. It has entertained me for 100’s of hours on my PC or laptop. This is a great game. It’s very simple – you shoot colored balls at the other colored balls to match at least three and clear them. So I was excited to play it on my XBox 360 quite a long time ago. FAIL. This is a terrible port of a game. Of course, you use your 360 controller. However, the controls are just awful.
You need to use the thumb sticks to control the cursor, but it is really hard to use. I don’t understand why they chose to make this game difficult. You have to hold the position with your thumbs to shoot the ball, but it requires a fair amount of pressure from your hand. This means that it is slow and painful.
I was really good at Zuma on the PC using a mouse. With this version of the game, I am horrible. I can’t get past the third level. Which means that this game is no fun. I do not recommend anyone play it as you will be frustrated and disappointed.
