2.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing port December 10, 2007
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
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." The graphics don't translate to the TV, at all - I tried it both on my big screen and on a 20" standard def screen and the text is nearly impossible to read, and the graphics get mangled by the translation. It just looks... ugly.

Furthermore, this was the first game on the Wii where they didn't use the Wii interface correctly -- instead of using the "point at the letters" keyboard interface that every other Wii game uses, this makes you hit up and down on the d-pad to slowly scroll through every letter in order to enter your name! Furthermore, the pointer used to move jewels on the board is very shaky, meaning that it will falsely make moves for you, costing you your turn as well as some life. You can get around it by switching to the "nunchuck controls", which also doesn't make a lot of sense, since the nunchuck isn't used for anything but the c and z buttons -- which could have easily been put on the 1 and 2, avoiding the need to two-hand the controls for the game at all, which just feels very awkward.

It also doesn't support play over the internet, which is pretty disappointing.

While puzzle quest is an awesome game, I would recommend that everyone avoid this port of it like the plague, and pick up the PC version instead. The appearance and interface issues with this version just suck all the fun out of it.

4.0 out of 5 stars If you can look past the flaws, it's still a gem December 30, 2007
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
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. I think this port is still worth buying if you like your Wii, so I'm going to defend it and go over each big flaw:

1) Pointing with the Wii: many people complain they keep making mistakes because it's hard to point. I had this same problem at first, but found that if you PUSH AND HOLD A on a tile, it will only let you swap it with one next to it and won't swap until you release the button. This cut down my mistakes to zero. Easily remedied.

2) The text is small: Yeah. It's small. I have a 29" widescreen lcd so unlike a lot of other reviewers, my TV isn't huge. But the text is still readable if I sit around 6 feet away, which is a pretty reasonable distance. I've had no eye strain and I have pretty bad vision to start with, so if you're willing to sit just a bit closer, this problem is solved as well.

3) No widescreen support: It's true the image stretches, but so what? Your other options are to buy it for a handheld system (which will be a small screen) or to buy it for some other system. The stretching really doesn't make the game look that bad.

4) No music transitions: This one is a stupid one and I have no idea why a programmer didn't just spend 10 minutes to add in some crossfade or something, but this negative to the game is also just niggling.

1.0 out of 5 stars Huge disappointment December 11, 2007
By Andrea
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii
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. They should have spent more time and actually made it Wii friendly. Grrr. This gives the abomination of a game called Chicken Shoot" fierce competition for worst Wii game.

2.0 out of 5 stars Puzze Quest is great...just not on the Wii December 30, 2007
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm not entirely sure who is to blame for it, but Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords for the Wii is a huge disappointment. The game has no widescreen mode for 480p televisions, the text is too tiny to read comfortably, and the gameplay is hampered by bad controls.

The developer clearly does not "get it" when it comes to Wii games. The one thing that tipped me off right away was the name entry screen. While I would normally expected a sort of pop-up keyboard approach to entering text (a very common and convenient interface component adopted by many games) the alternative was to enter each letter by scrolling through the alphabet. And since each new letter entered started back at A, you had to traverse the entire alphabet once just to get to the lowercase letters. Even then, if you entered a name eight characters long, your name would end in the letter A. Bugs like these are unacceptable in modern gaming.

This game was rushed out the door, which is unfortunate since it has enjoyed success on other platforms. Having played it on the 360, I suggest sticking with that, and using your Wii for more Metroid-oriented pursuits.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cool!
Very addictive and challenging game, but unless you have a large TV, don't plan on being able to read anything on the screen. (which isn't required for the enjoyment of the game).
