Conclusion: It’s hard to fault Bejeweled 2 as a downloadable title. There’s plenty here to keep newcomers and puzzle aficionados quietly working away until the inevitably advanced sequel arrives. With a tight, easy to use control scheme, the opportunity to complete levels with extreme haste has never been more apparent, as you can destroy boards in seconds with a quick bit of dynamic thinking and a sharp eye for matching colours.
Excerpt: How does one start reviewing a game that pretty much everyone on the entire internet has been playing? It’s a bit like reviewing a new version of draughts, “new shiny board, doubles as shaving mirror!” or chess even, “complete with suggestive pieces!” Indeed, Bejeweled is quite the phenomenon, at least 25 million of you have bought the damn thing and at least 150 million have played it. Boggles the mind a bit doesn’t it, appears that causal gaming is serious business!
Excerpt: The PlayStation Network is home to some pretty interesting downloadable titles, but the traditional puzzle category has been a little underrepresented to date. Sony Online Entertainment has decided to change all of that with the release of a string of PopCap developed casual puzzle titles, the first of which is Bejeweled 2.
Excerpt: PopCap Games first developed Bejeweled and released it in the Flash format back in 2001. Since then, the title has appeared on nearly every gaming platform known to man, ranging from the PC to mobile phones, the Xbox 360 and now the PlayStation Network store. Predictably, it plays the same on the PlayStation 3 as it did on Xbox Live Arcade, on the PC and—well, you get the idea.
Conclusion: Unlike you typical shooters, fighting, racing games, casual game rarely ever get an overhaul, which is sometimes a good thing. The purity of Bejeweled 2 has survived its many incarnations, and continues to wow gamers and get them hook on its addicting gameplay. For those looking for a puzzle title they can easily hop into, this is their game. When you have this game on your cell phone and computer, the next logical step is to have this game on your videogame console.
Summary: When whooshing down the dastardly Nürburgring track for the umpteenth time, you will realize the brilliance and competency that Turn10 has in the racing genre. You will begin to realize that they have created a racing game that is not only a faithful homage to the science of driving, but also one that can be experienced by anyone. The ability to craft and mould your experience to correspond with your skill level makes this a racing game for all.
Conclusion: Malgré sa réalisation sans grand panache, Bejeweled 2 devrait réussir à convaincre les fans de jeux de réflexion : le gameplay qui a fait la renommée de la série répond présent, et les différents modes de jeu ont de quoi vous occuper durant de longues heures. Certes ceux qui possèdent le jeu sur une autre plateforme ou qui se contentent de la version en ligne n'ont aucune vraie raison de craquer pour cette itération PS3, mais les autres ne devraient pas regretter leur...
Pros: Un gameplay prenant, Des modes de jeu bien pensés, Le petit prix : moins de huit euros
Cons: La réalisation, Il existe des versions encore moins chères
Summary: Bejeweled 2 vaut donc bien son prix, car il nous propose une profonde expérience de jeu pour les fans du genre. On retrouve de nombreux modes de jeux variés et un classement online qui poussera certains à vouloir améliorer leur score en permanence. Seul bémol dans ce beau ciel bleu, la difficulté du titre qui est non réglable et la mauvaise gestion de l’aide au joueur qui gâchera le plaisir de certains.
