Excerpt: Bejeweled 3 is a difficult game to review because it’s one of the few games that doesn’t need to be fixed in some way. The developers have the formula on such lockdown that it’s nearly impossible for them to screw it up. It works in the way that Tetris works, it survives in the way that Pac-Man survives. It will be around for years and years, taking on new forms, but always holding on to the classic gem matching gameplay mechanic that PopCap has perfected.
Conclusion: This thought is reflected across the game as a whole too. While Pop cap haven’t changed up too many of the fundamentals that make Bejeweled what it is, they have instead added some modes that feel either superior or wholly unique when compared to other puzzle games on the market. Though some will be happy sticking with the various other versions of this now legendary series, those who need just a little more depth in their puzzle titles can do no wrong with Bejeweled 3 .
