Another game of interest killed by to much difficulty

Summary: This sounded like a good game, that is why I picked it up. I then played for a while and enjoyed the puzzle battles and fought the battles around the starting area. Then I smacked my head against the first boss again and again trying to get past. I raised my experience level a few times but still there was no getting past. I laid this game to rest to stop wasting my time. Best of luck to those who continue on this quest.
Summary: fun?! ZERO is what I should be allowed to give this! Since I can't properly rate this, I'll have to rate it here in the commentary. How much fun is this game?.......... ZERO ZERO ZERO ZERO ZERO How do you rate this game overall? ZERO ZERO ZERO ZERO ZERO How I can count the ways on how freakin' awful this game really is. Maybe for the puzzle twitch junkie this will get their buzz on. But for me, it's so bad I can't describe the hate I have for this turd.
Summary: I wanted to surprise my son (15) for Easter so I didn't ask him for the name of a new game. This was in the 2007 list of best games and sounded good. However, upon loading it, the writing is very tiny, even for his eyes, and the game not very challenging. He played it about four times and now is back using old games he had.
Extremely fun game, but crippled by a horrible PSP bug

Summary: First, let me say that Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords is an extremely fun and addicting game. It beautifully melds an RPG-style game with a challenging (yet not overly complicated) puzzle-type battle system. I'm an RPG fan (not so much turn-based) and my girlfriend loves shape/puzzle games (tetris, etc.). We both had a great deal of fun with the game UNTIL the devastating bug. I'm not talking about the OTHER bug (roll eyes) that makes your companions useless.
Summary: This weekend, I played two games: Bioshock and Puzzle Quest. Bioshock was pretty good. Puzzle Quest was the "Worst Game Evar." Three handled trophy and all, this has to be, hands down, the dumbest idea I have ever encountered, implemented in a manner that can only charitably be characterized as ham-fisted, with so arbitrary and flimsy a primary play mechanic that any fun that this game threatens to have gets crushed into dust before it ever happens.
