It's a little perplexing how long it took for Picross e7 to be released outside Japan, especially when one considers that it still doesn't really do anything new. It's the same old, same old, really - if you've exhausted the supply of Picross titles on the eShop (Hopefully including Mario's Picross and Mario's Super Picross) and just can't get enough of them, e7 is here to satisfy your appetite. It's a little annoying that Mega Picross once again doesn't have original puzzles, but everything else is still solid as usual, even if it's lacking any creative spark.
Picross e7 is an enjoyable iteration on Jupiter's Nintendo eShop series and packs enough content to keep players busy for weeks on end. But, it continues to lack new ideas which is a problem suffered by the entries that came before it.
Picross puzzles can potentially go on and on over the years without getting old and Picross e7 shows just that. It might now tread a new path when compared to its very similar predecessor but it offers plenty of new puzzles that will keep the series' veterans satisfied, while welcoming newcomers with its progressive difficulty settings. Proving that there's no end in sight for the Picross series and that anyone can get started at any moment, Picross e7 deserves some attention by both longtime fans and beginners alike.

A decent enough addition to the series, but ultimately, one that fails to bring anything new or special. Hardcore Picross fans will be picking this up regardless, while those who may be interested in trying out the number crossword puzzler would be better off going for the tie-in version to whatever franchise they prefer, or even the 3D version.
