Summary: A good casual game for occasional play. It's nice that it saves on it's own frequently. I can pickup right where I left off. If I only feel like playing a couple battles or practicing, I have that option too.
Summary: Perfect combination of the RPG style game with puzzle solving. Gives a variety of types of heroes you can play allowing you to change your strategy for many, many hours of fun and replay. Two games can be saved at once so you can play two different character types without finishing the game with one first. This allows you also to compare character types so you can choose your favorite.

Summary: Not the strongest installment in the series, but still loads of fun. Cons: -- Easier than the other Puzzle Quest games I've played (the original PQ, Galactrix, and Puzzle Kingdoms). Some classes and strategies specifically make it almost impossible to LOSE. The first time I played as an Assassin, I literally didn't lose a single battle even when playing inattentively. -- Somewhat annoying interface.
Summary: I am still playing this game. It's very challenging as you are playing against a monster of some sort and have quests to fulfill. I love it, very hard to put down especially when the bad guy wins, LOL. Makes you more determined to win. Has many weapons and magic you can mix and match to make it easier for you to win. That alone can be a challenge.
Summary: I have the Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords and I love it so much I've played it twice, so I thought I would enjoy this one also. They made some good changes (smaller wording so you can see the board), but to me, who isn't all that DS savvy, and I find it very hard to follow since they don't have the whole "town" available to view, so I get lost very easy because I don't know where I am or how to get where I need to go.
Summary: This game is much better than Puzzle Quest Galactrix, but not as good as Puzzle Quest 1. It brings back the original RPG elements and adds some optional challenge puzzles to mix. Buying weapons and armor is fun too. I got a little bit frustrated in the middle because of the monotony, but overall it is fun and I was very sad to see it end.
Summary: Overall, this is a nice follow-up to the original Puzzle Quest. For those that have played the original Puzzle Quest: I like that the mini-games are more integrated into the gameplay in the sequel. There are less options (no mounts or citadel building). The humor that was in Puzzle Quest is pretty much non-existant here. So far I haven't come across any spells as powerful as in Puzzle Quest and it takes longer to build mana. This has made for some much longer battles.
Summary: This game is twice as fun as the first Puzzle Quest. It's similar in a lot of ways but the best improvement I have noticed is that you don't lose a turn for an accidental mis-flip. I hated that about the first one. The stories are interesting and they've added a few different types of puzzles instead of just the battle puzzle. I really enjoy it a lot!
Summary: After spending countless hours on Challenge of the Warlords (PQ1) on the PSP, I was eager awaiting the sequel, but it was never released on that platform. Hence, I decided to get PQ2 for DS instead, which was a big change in many ways. The sole reliance on stylus for input takes some getting used to, but it works well. As for the game itself, PQ2 is an improvement on PQ1 on many fronts.
