  • Summary: Puzzle Quest 2 comes out looking like a tarnished gem.
  • Pros: Lots of mini-games; same puzzling gameplay as the original; new point of view makes the game feel fresh.
  • Cons: Issues with game pacing; new defense element makes battles feel far too long; lack of interesting equipment; spell resistances make for extremely frustrating moments.

  • Summary: I have something of a love/hate relationship with D3's Puzzle Quest franchise. It was love at first sight when I played the 2007 original, raving about it to friends and naming it my Game of the Year. But as much as I loved that game, I hate what Infinite Interactive did with the concept after that.

  • Summary: My love for Puzzle Quest knows no bounds. I was absolutely giddy to get my hands on the sequel. Imagine my disappointment when it turned out to be merely good, not great. The core match-three gameplay is nearly identical.

  • Excerpt: I shall banish thee from this plane with this holy five-of-a-kind! Puzzle Quest 2 is essentially an acknowledgment, if not a downright apology, that Galactrix – otherwise known as “hex-based puzzle something what was that?” – didn’t work.
  • Pros: Return to classic, Two new gems, Weapons, armor, and upgrading, Cliché story, crappy ending, Unpolished menus on DS, Paltry local multiplayer
