Summary: I say this is an awesome game because, well for one, it is not difficult to get started. I am an addict of RPG games, so when I picked this game up it is because I just recently beat the Nintendo DS version.. I like the feeling it gives when I level up as if I was playing a real type of RPG game. And when I hit combos and got used to being tactful in my choices I felt, well to put it short, Smart..lol. This game was and is very relaxing to play as well.
Summary: I purchased this because I can't ever seem to get my DS lite version away from wife and thought it would be fun to see how the game translates on the WII. As you can tell from the other reviews, the game doesn't utilize the WII remote very well, but you also have to realize that not every game will translate well to the WII. I use the optional controller method and the majority of my action utilizes the D-pad on the WII remote with the A button.
Summary: I hve no idea what all the negative reviews are about! I got this game and have been hooked since. It's full screen on a 56" HDTV, the graphics are perfect, I can read the words just fine. I'm already addicted and I LOVE IT!
Summary: A lot of folks are saying some seriously negative stuff about this port and I think a lot of it is whining. I've read all the complaints with the Wii version of this awesome game, and after playing it, I do agree with all of them. The pointing mechanic is flawed, the text is stupidly small, there's no widescreen support, and the music transitions are nonexistant. But.... none of these flaws are crippling and can be lived with easily.
Summary: I eagerly anticipated PuzzleQuest for the Wii. Everything said in the previous review echoes my experience with this game. It's hard to stress enough the difficulty I had reading the text on screen - it made me dizzy and I was only able to play for a short time. The controls don't work well, so you lose points and die making moves you didn't really make. This was an exercise in frustration and a waste of money.
Summary: I dont know why this game is getting such bad reviews, me and my husband LOVE it. The controls are not bad as others have said; you just have to be careful when you point the wii remote as it should be. As for the game cheating, LOL I think all games cheat some when I'm losing but what fun would a game be if you won every battle or finished the game in 3 hours. Then people would be screaming it was too easy and where would the challenge be.
Summary: As someone that spent way too much time playing the Puzzle Quest demo for the PC, I was really looking forward to finally playing this game. I picked it up for the Wii so that my fiancee (who loves Bejeweled) could play it with me. However, while it is exactly the same 5-star game under the hood, its appearance and interface on the Wii make it a 2-star version. The first time I fired it up, my fiancee said, "Ew.
Summary: At its core, this is a fantastic game. It combines a unique twist on Bejeweled-style gem matching games with a fantasy RPG. All the battles that you face, as well as other challenges (creating items, training mounts, conquering cities) all are resolved by a puzzle duel. We quickly found that the wii style pointing interface was too unreliable, and instead used the d-pad and nunchuck setup. It plays just fine with the alternate control scheme.
Summary: This game was beyond disappointing. The music is ok, but mundane. The characters are good. However, the programmers rushed this game to production. The computer does cheat. I know other reviewers are mixed on this, but the computer makes matches by knowing what will fall next. Matches occur in areas where no match previously existed. And, falling skulls will damage you but you do not get equal opportunity to damage the computer's character.
