Summary: It’s always risky for videogame developers to try something new and different, because while innovative titles have the potential for greatness, sometimes innovation comes at the expense of a game’s quality. Thus, there was much trepidation at the announcement that a game combining role-playing, puzzle, and strategy elements entitled Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords, would see simultaneous release on the PlayStation Portable and Nintendo DS systems, both versions...
A great game! Addictive! But the stylus manipulation always is a slight drawback.

Summary: This game is like a lot of puzzlers: Addictive! Candy Crush, Puzzle Bobble, Tetris -- you can see where I'm going. They are like a drug. The only problem is moving the pieces with a tiny stylus. I have sizeable hands, so it's a chore for me.
Summary: The gameplay is your typical match-three, except you take turns matching with an opponent, and the gems you match give you mana for spells or deal damage to your opponent directly. It's like combat Bejeweled. It's not a particularly hard game, though some of the bosses can smash you into paste if you're not careful or prepared. Great fun for the RPG fan looking for something different, or for the gamer who enjoys casual games but is looking for something more.
Summary: I like how simple this game is. Most games these days are way too complicated. This is a perfect game for air ports when you have that 3 hour layover. I came across this game on the xbox as a demo and knew a perfect time passer when I saw it.
Summary: A "match 3 gems" game with a quest story line. Build your character's strengths, acquire spells, switch out weapons, armor and other little trinkets preparing for the final showdown with Lord Bane. There are lots of little quests to complete and a number of diverting little side tasks, as well. Some comic relief is provided by a hungry Orc and a brotherly spat. Good, mindless fun.
Summary: As a fan of match-3 games and a fan of narrative-driven games, this is a great hybrid. Only problem is that I lent it out and never got it back, so I can't re-play it. One flaw, though, is that for those of us who play tactical spell games, there are some very easy and deadly combos that can make short work of any enemy.
Summary: Old title, still a great game to play for DS. Adults and kids alike love this game. It is truly a quest that builds as you collect weapons, other warriors in your party, experience, gold, skills, spells, etc. If you want to use your brain a little, try this for a change.
Summary: So it's a fun game if you like puzzle games, but it's notorious for stacking things against you. It's nice to have a story to keep things moving on, and there are choices that if you screw up, can mess you over throughout the rest of your game(and it doesn't tell you that there are consequences). Now the dialog can be fun at times, but it really comes off as something that a 10th grader came up with to be honest.
Summary: If you like puzzle games but think they could use a little more depth, this is the game for you. At the core it is a puzzle game, but it adds various elements of an RPG so that playing this game requires strategy as well. The graphics, music and plot are far from perfect, but the game elements combine to make this a superb game.
Summary: Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords is a very fun, addictive Bejeweled-style game for the Nintendo DS. It takes the core gameplay style of Bejeweled, in which you match from 3-5 items to eliminate them from the board, and adds an RPG twist to it in which you travel the lands taking quest, meeting new people/creatures, and defeating all the bad guys. Over the course of your journeys you will pick up companions and occasionally win armor or weapons to use.
