Summary: Once you actually get into doing the Quest and stuff it is really good. You can use the "select opponent" to help level you up and you can gain experience that way and money to buy your armour and weapon. The game its self is good and the graphics are good too. Combining quest style rp games with the puzzle style of matching three or more gems to level up and learn new spells, and combat your opponent that way. Its great!!!
Summary: Puzzle Quest could have been just as big - if not bigger - than casual hits such as Peggle and Bejeweled. Great art, great music, and hey, it even has a story. Unfortunately, all of the good is countered by one very serious problem: the game suffers from the worst game balance I have ever experienced.
Summary: I started by playing the PC version. I think it was back int the 90's. It kind of reminds me how I used to have my own way of learning the tricks on the FF9 card game. It may seem easy to the naked eye, but I warn you, some things seem so easy they are hard. I think that is the main misconception of this game being totally under-rated. Once you build a citadel fully, there is so much more to the game.
Something for the RPer and Puzzle gamer in all of us

Summary: When I found out about this game I was scared of it. How could a game put something like the in depth of an RP game and mix it with puzzle solving gaming. The answer was THIS game. Puzzle Quest is the game for gamers that not only like Puzzle games like Bust A Move or Bejeweled but for a good simple story game for RPers as well.
Summary: Wow - this sure is an addicting game. It's got the "one-more-turn" that sucks you right in to playing and playing. This is not your typical match-three game, but more of a combination RPG and match-three. BUT - this game's insidious thing that puts it above others is that when you do the game boards you have an opponent who is trying to make you lose. Sure it seems weird, but yo u battle all sorts of Middle-Earth denizons - from Orcs to Trolls to Dragons.
Summary: The game is interesting, unfortunately it has two enormous flaws for me. The first one is the JRPG look and dialogs are extremely childish. They are simply an uninteresting waste of time. The game would have been much more tolerable without the "story" and the world map. The second major flaw is luck plays far too much in the outcome of a battle. It makes this game totally unsuited for peo ple who like more serious games.
Summary: I wanted a good puzzle or logic game that my kids (10-6 years old) could play that isn't just simple pushing buttons, fighting or racing games. Unfortunately, with all the other competition from the Wii games, TV shows, and free online computer games, they don't seem too interested.
