  • Summary: But ...but..but...Szlomo! why would You give this such a positive review?!?! Hmm.. well. I must admit I'm slightly shocked as well. Whenever I see my dear Esther, or anyone for that matter, in the claws of a match three game ( which this certainly is, supposedly derived from "Shariki" thought up in the ancient times of "Tetris") I cry a little inside thinking of the mind numbing torments the unfortunate is undergoing.

  • Summary: This is not a bad game, considering its new ideas. However, the diversity of tactics option is just much less than the previous installment due to 2 main reasons. One is that equipment choice and effects are quite limited. Another reason is that players' spells are just mediocre compared to enemy's highly efficient spell (great effects, low mana cost, low or even zero wait time for recasting).

  • Summary: The game is set in a different universe and mechanics from the original. The only things common in both games are the spells and enemies. such change brings some improvement but also causes more issues ruining the fun of game. Improvement: 1. skill point reallocation at ease 2. use of weapon and armor rather than only casting spell 3. no useless gem like coin and purple star in original which are only useful for specific class 4.

  • Summary: If Diablo & Sudoku had a child it would look a lot like this. This is a wonderful little indie puzzle/RPG hybrid that finds a perfect balance between casual intellectual gameplay and good ole fashioned looting & leveling. It is a game that doesn't try to pretend it is something it is not. It only goes as far as it has to in order to quench the gamers-itch for hunting treasure in an intellectually rewarding construct.

  • Summary: Playing through Puzzle Quest 2, I found myself bored with the repetitive "go here, do this" story and the uninteresting loot. There just isn't enough depth to warrant putting in the 20+ hours to complete it. Don't get me wrong this isn't a terrible game by any means. If you like matching gems for hours and hours without really thinking about what you're doing, this game may be for you. For me, it lacked the personality and innovation of the original Puzzle Quest.

  • Summary: I just started playing Puzzle Quest 2 even though I didn't fully complete Puzzle Quest 1 (but I got a good way through it). I was afraid about the reviews that they did away with the overhead map which I do miss. But so far I really enjoy the way it walks you through the 3d map with 2 or 3 of 4 directions to go on each screen or bad guys to battle or people to talk to.

  • Summary: It's Puzzle Quest - Diablo style with more match-3 goodness, but hardcore gamers still run the risk of becoming bored quickly with this series, especially if you don't like matching gems hours on end...

  • Summary: The Original Puzzle Quest was a masterpiece in it's genre, easy gameplay to get to grips with but difficult to master, a map that makes it is easy travel to each location and a story that while not award winning is charming in it's own way. Puzzle Quest 2 however changes the gameplay mechanics slightly (to add more depth but it doesn't do this and ruins the game) as well as changes the iconic look of the first game, traversing the world is really a chore here as you are...

  • Summary: Puzzle Quest 2 is a fantastic casual game: something to have in the background while you sit at your computer and do whatever you are supposed to do. It is unavoidable to not compare it to Puzzle Quest 1, and through that this new game comes out as a slight disappointment. It lacks some of the deeper minigames the first game had, although the new kinds of minigames such as looting, is a nice touch.

  • Summary: La estrategia y la lógica forman parte de este juego, y me gusta mucho. Es un juego donde hay que hacer puzles estilo bolas, hay que unificar tanto colores como formas, pero tenemos que tener cuidado de no equivocarnos y emparejar otras que nos harían perder puntuación (vida) y eso acabaría con nosotros. En el juego de brindarán batallas, no siempre se gana, pero si logramos avanzar en los puzles nos haremos con la victoria.
