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.

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!
