Summary: This game is a great way to pass the time on trips. It's a more in-depth Bejeweled type game where you have a hero you level up while playing. If you enjoy games like Lumines or puzzle games in general you may like this game. The only thing I don't like about this game are a few bugs I have run into. They are minor performance problems were the game may slow down after defeating an opponent, but these can be overlooked and are nothing major.
Summary: When I first decided to buy this game, it was only because I had seen it on every other console and as an Amazon Black Friday deal of only $10 w/free shipping, I figured why not. Even when I first fired the game up, I was still a little hesitant. Now that I am well over 60+ hours into the game, I am still hooked. The game is like Bejeweled with a purpose and RPG flair.
Summary: The concept and game play is good but the major flaw of the game is the bug ONLY exist in the US PSP version. This bug does not allow your companions in your Quest to add bonuses. No wonder I have been fighting really challenging enemies by myself all the time! I talked to D3 Publisher they told me that they are still discussing with SONY rather to replace the UMD instead of using patching it via memory stick. Will update you guys when they resolve this problem.
Summary: First off, anyone familiar with the Bejeweled types of games online will immediately grasp the game. All battles, puzzles, and challenges are handled by playing this puzzle type of game. Of course, with an RPG twist, gameplay can be changed/affected with spells that you amass as you gain levels and/or capture enemies. The only knocks against this game are: 1. The combat mechanic can get old if you're not interested in that type of game. 2.
Summary: This is definitely one of my favorite games for the PSP! My only quibble is the incredible luck your enemies have when you make jewels disappear. But if you learn to use your resources and mana wisely, you should have no problems beating your enemies eventually. I can't wait for the sequel.
Summary: The game itself is fantastic. I now own a copy for both the PSP and DS. The PSP version's only flaw lies in the fact that your companions do not activate their abilities before appropriate battles.
A truly original puzzle concept, becoming Bejeweled For Nerds.

Excerpt: *For the DS* I wanted to play this game as soon as I heard about it, and I wasn't let down; it's really fun and addictive. But it's severely flawed, to the point that it could turn a lot of people off to it. Still, it stands as a shining example of the kinds of cool directions in which developers can take the 'puzzle' theme. So here's the game: Over and over I've heard Puzzle Quest referred to as a "Bejeweled RPG.
Conclusion: I'm not a huge fan of puzzle games nor RPGs but heard an excellent view of this and therefore I bought it. This game has suprised me no end, it is wonderfully presented, with varied and interesting gameplay. It is addictive and really hard to put down once you start. Give it a go - you will not regret it.
