Summary: I think I've logged over 100 hours on the first Puzzle Quest. When I found out they were doing a Sci-Fi themed version, I was really excited because I prefer Sci-Fi over fantasy anyday. The core gameplay is the same, but the mechanic of the way the pieces fall into place has changed for worse.
Summary: This game is the only game on Nintendo DS that I would keep in my game card slot. In fact, the side quests and forging kept me busy for three years, up until my DS Lite was stolen following a car accident I was involved in. That should speak volumes about how cool this game is.
Summary: Can't believe some say this game is hard, on a 1 to 5 scale I'd give a 2. The worst thing is that the opponents always seem to be the same level as you, and with their poor IQ, makes it more time-wasting than a challenge.
Maddening gameplay -- ignoring the reviews was a mistake

Summary: I bought this despite the lousy reviews because so many of them seemed to boil down to "it's too hard!" and difficult games are something I really enjoy. There's nothing worse than a too-easy game. Or so I thought until I got this drek and tried it out.
Summary: The original Puzzle Quest is one of my all-time favorite games, so Galactrix had a lot to live up to. It clearly benefits from a higher budget and a level of polish that Challenge of the Warlords lacked, but some irritating design quirks spoil the experience almost from the start.
Summary: This game is a twist on "match the gems" genre: it uses a hexagonal board and board tiles rather than squares. This makes the game's puzzles more challenging and interesting. There are about a half-dozen different puzzle types for different activities, which require different strategies.
Summary: If you're a fan of the original, you'll enjoy this take... for a while, at least. Unfortunately, the game doesn't break many boundaries, and it's hard to follow any linear storyline (I'm embarrassed to admit it took me a while to figure out where to go next, and that's with years of RPGs under my...
Summary: The puzzle quest franchise is fantastic overall. The first puzzle quest is an almost perfect game, and PQ2 is turning out to be a treat equal to it's predecessor. PQ Galactrix has all the elements needed to be an amazing game worthy of the PQ lineage, but where it fails it fails HARD!
Summary: Most things are covered by the other reviews, I am just going to add my main beefs. 1. leap gate hacking. easily the most annoying puzzle type in the game. it's timed and doesn't require much strategy or thinking to solve, but it would not too bad if it's a small part of the game, unfortunately: -...
