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: Overall I really wanted to enjoy this game. It successfully combines two different genres the RPG and the puzzle game. While all of this is well and good and playing the game 2P is quite enjoyable the aspect that troubles me is the progressively more aggressive AI we're finding in these games. While I enjoy a challenge in a game this game unfairly gives the AI advantages that are certainly not "luck".
Good concept with extremely annoying and frustrating execution

Summary: I love puzzle games and I love my rpgs. So when I first read about this game and all the raving reviews, I immediately went out and got a copy for myself. The game started off pretty cool but then what came along was just frustration beyond words could describe it. Ok, the mechanism and gameplay are basically throwing in a story to a Bejewelled type of puzzle game. So you match same colour marbles and blah together.
Summary: I got this game because my husband is a complete game junkie and wants almost every new game that's released. He wanted this one, and I thought it sounded like a good addition to our multi-player library. But out of the two of us, I'm the one who plays this most. It's a Bejeweled style "swap to make three of a kind" style game layered inside an RPG world, with one innovative twist.
Summary: Seeing that there are quite a few reviews on this game already Ill summarize mine as much as possible: I own 2 videogame stores and have played games forever, my best genres are puzzle, strategy and rpg. I have played a lot of Tetris and Advance Wars to name a couple. Why did I buy this game?
Excerpt: Puzzle quest 2. Nintendo DS So ive been away, slightly rust at this, keyboard hand meeting thing, im sure ill get the hang again very soon….. So welcome to 2011 kylecoare reviews again, and it’s not a punk record or a retro game though it is a game that could quite fit nicely with those retro classics, in fact why no one in the 80’s thought of this I don’t know, shall we move on????
Pros: so many hours of pure gameplay, simple but fun
Cons: you will be labeled a casual geek, or something ! ! !
Summary: C'est un mélange de Tetris et de RPG (qui rappelle d'ailleurs Heroes of Might & magic). Le principe est simple : vous déplacez votre personnage sur une carte pour mener différentes quêtes et à chaque confrontation avec un monstre vous devez le battre à une sorte de Tetris qui se joue au tour par tour. Le jeu est sympathique. Malheureusement, le scénario n'est qu'un prétexte et on se désintéresse très vite de l'histoire centrale et de ses protagonistes.
