Summary: Pluses: - Wide range of new character classes to choose from (unlike Galactrix) - Interesting dungeon format: portals, hidden traps, secrets, lock-picking - Many new mini-games such as lock-picking, treasure-grabbing, door-bashing Minuses: - Not challenging enough: even setting the game to "hard" difficulty, I found the monster and boss fights WAY too easy. - Monster fights take a really long time until you get to high levels.
Summary: I offer a mixed review. The first game being such a wonder and pleasure, I awaited this title eagerly and it was one of my rare new-game purchases. This game improves upon the original in all ways but one. It contains better graphics, better interface, better side puzzle developments, and other improved character elements for game play. However, its lack is in one crucial area-- the AI.
Summary: I was addicted to the first game, and found myself playing until the wee hours of the morning, so I was very excited about the sequel. Although they had tried the other games carrying the "Puzzle Quest" name, they were far from fun. This game makes some dramatic changes to the RPG portions of the game, allowing for a more interactive environment. There are some storyline elements which are quite weak, but overall the gameplay changes are all very good.
Summary: Decent game just not a worthy sequel to one of my favorite games. Some will like this game more than the first. It is easier, the layout is different. They even added action gems and a new mana color. But for most hard core gamers this game lacks the "magic" PQ 1 had. Pun intended. It removes the mounts, castle sieges, weapon creation.. well this list can go on with the things took out of PQ 2.
Excerpt: si l'on veut du sport réaliste, c'est le jeu qu'il vous faut. Par contre, si vous voulez vraiment vous amuser, ben mieux vaut aller voir un certain hérisson qui passe des épreuves sportives dans un concours symbolisé par des anneaux entrelacés... Les graphismes sont de l'âge de pierre, les jeux sont redondants, une fois qu'on a trouvé comment gagner, il suffit de refaire tout le temps la même chose, donc au final, rien de bien transcendant....
