Puzzle Quest Galactrix

Strategy Informer
6 October 2011
  • Conclusion: Still, the aforementioned niggles are just a minor affair, and as long as you haven’t smoked yourself into a stupor I’m sure the teething issues won’t irritate for too long. You really must try Puzzle Quest: Galactrix as it is one of the best games I’ve played all year. It really is that good. However, whether it is 1600 MS Points good is the real issue isn’t it?

  • Excerpt: The universe is a big place – blow it up. Galactrix is space-bound: Earth is […]
  • Pros: + Puzzle+RPG=addictive, + The universe is a big place, + Plenty of quests, + Zero gravity makes it more than just a "match three" game
  • Cons: Skip turn items can be gamebreaking, Dynamic range on the audio can be earsplitting

Front Mission Evolved Review

IGN Entertainment
11 March 2010
  • Excerpt: The Front Mission series is traditionally a turned based affair pitting the player’s squads of walking tanks, known as Wanzers, against groups of computer controlled enemies. The first next generation entry in the long running series swaps out its core gameplay mechanic for a more modern, action oriented one. Can the first western developed Front Mission title revive the staggering mecha genre that hasn’t seen an upgrade in ages?

Puzzle Quest: Galactrix

The Gamers Temple
4 January 2010
  • Excerpt: I've been playing video games for a pretty long time. Maybe even longer than most of you have been on this little blue planet. I've seen a lot and played a variety of games. So when something "new" comes along that claims to create a new type of genre or successfully combine different ones that look like that have no right being mixed together I get a bit suspicious. Puzzle Quest is such a game that takes a bit of a RPG and slams it into a lot of a puzzle game.

Puzzle Quest: Galactrix

Square-Go
17 November 2009
  • Excerpt: Block puzzle games have evolved drastically over the years. After all, how many times can you line up sets of three or more blocks of the same colour for points before you get bored of the whole concept? Launched in 2007, Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords introduced the idea of coupling the puzzle element of gaming with rich storylines and role-playing elements.

Puzzle Quest: Galactrix Review

GameBanshee
11 August 2009
  • Conclusion: Puzzle Quest: Galactrix is the sequel to 2007’s Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords . It is roughly the same sort of game: you battle opponents using match-3 games, you explore numerous locations looking for quests to complete and companions to recruit, and you build up your character so you can save humanity from a terrible threat. It’s the details that are different.

Puzzle Quest: Galactrix Review

PlayDevil
16 July 2009
  • Summary: I can’t quite put my finger on it- but " Puzzle Quest: Galactrix " just isn’t quite as good as it’s predecessor. It’s a bigger game, with technically better graphics and sound, but it all feels a bit sterile.

Puzzle Quest Galactrix

Defunct Games
9 June 2009
  • Summary: Puzzle Quest Galactrix sounds like a dream come true. I love the epic space battles, cool technology and, most importantly, the first game. So why is it that I can't get into this pseudo-sequel? This is a good second attempt, but I liked the first game better! This product was submitted by the publisher for review. As a rule, Defunct Games does not review games we spent money on. However, that does not always apply to classic/retro games.

Expert Review

Game Freaks 365
18 May 2009
  • Excerpt: In a nutshell, Puzzle Quest: Galactrix a puzzle game in space with pirate aliens, some RPG elements, and a rather dispassionate (read disposable) text based story. I will be honest and tell you that I never played Puzzle Quest before but I don’t think that has any bearing on the entertainment value that this game proposes. Technically, the graphics are okay, nothing interesting but at least it’s not ugly and the audio is competent.
