This is the 7th game in the main Puyo Puyo series, which is denoted by the 7. A break from the previous Fever series games, the game is set in a world similar to the real world instead of Primp Town. In this game, a new game mode known as Transformation was added as the default mode. Five new characters were introduced, and a few characters from past games in the series were reintroduced, either as playable characters or cameos.

I got a whole new appreciation for this game after playing it on Wii. I really love the aesthetic of the game and it's 15th style sprites. The story starts off pretty fun but ends pretty clumsy though... It feels very rushed and we really get no explanation on what or who Ecolo really IS until 20th. The character choices for some of the main protagonists are also so odd, but I like it for that. Suketoudara being a story option in a main Puyo game is funny. The main game mode for this one that they like to use is Transformation. Which I can't say I prefer over a similar mode like Fever honestly... they're both pretty alike. Instead of giving you normal sized Puyo chains to set off during a Fever, Transformation lets you decide whether you want Mega Puyo, Mini Puyo, or both. I tend to prefer Mini though cause it's more like Fever. It's a lot more satisfying than Mega. Stay tuned for Saetta's patch soon. Nenilein's translation is a treat.
I respect this game for attempting something bigger near the end of the story but I think there's a sign of low confidence when most of the cast of this new universe is old characters and the new gameplay style is used for only portion of the game. A gameplay style that sucks by the way.
