Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
If you've done any research on Puzzle Quest, you know it's a fantasy RPG where combat is done in a "match 3" Bejeweled style puzzle game. That's a good summary, but it doesn't do the game justice - the fusion of two different games is complete and total, making an RPG whose gameplay, though familiar, is done in a completely different manner than we've come to expect.

At the core of the game you create a character from one of four classes. Moving around on a stylus-guided map, you travel to various areas, get quests, and battle assorted monsters. The combat is done on a grid of icons you line up - skulls (which you line up for a physical attack), coins (to get bonus gold), stars (to get bonus experience), and mana gems (to get one of four kinds of mana), and wildcards. Special abilities let you go beyond simple line-up-the icons to do damage, alter the puzzle board's contents, affect your opponent, and more. You can figure out cascading combos that are just as satisfying as any fighting game.

Alone, this would be a reasonably fun game. However, the game is both a complete puzzle game and a decently-detailed RPG. You level up your character and gain new abilities and add to existing skills - which can affect gameplay radically. Equipment also affects gameplay and varies considerably - a whip does damage when you collect yellow (air) mana, a suit of armor helps reduce damage, a ring may heal you as long as you keep your blue (water) mana above a certain level. You'll find yourself mixing and matching abilities (you can only have six ready at a time), equipment, and more to find new and better strategies.

5.0 out of 5 stars More fun than you would even think March 28, 2007
Platform for Display:Nintendo DS
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is so MUCH fun! I sort of felt blah about the idea of another Bejeweled style game, and though the combat takes on a Bejeweled like interface and general idea, it has so much more to it! Each type of thing you connect means something different for your character (connect 3 skulls and it does damage to your opponents life, connect 3 piles of money and you get gold, connect stars for experience or orbs for different types of mana!).

It's Bejeweled at the very core but it plays like an RPG. You have a character that levels, has spells, equipment and gets quests. It's incredibly fun and more addictive than you could possibly imagine.

I also want to mention that the art, interface and music are fantastic. This game is top notch in my book, just plain fun!

5.0 out of 5 stars Mom converted to video game geek September 21, 2007
Platform for Display:Nintendo DS
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I am not a gamer. I'm in fact a mom who is often known to be nagging at my kids to turn off their game devices. I fell hard for this game, though. I now own my own DS (pink so my son won't steal it) and have repeatedly played Puzzle Quest. I bought it last spring and played it daily until I just yesterday completed battling Lord Bane in the final Quest. I love strategy thinking without the time pressure - so the bejewel like game is interesting enough, but the added layer of increasing levels of opponents and spells kept me coming back to see how the game play changed. Too much fun.

4.0 out of 5 stars RPG Goodness May 14, 2007
Platform for Display:Nintendo DS
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
At this point in the DS life cycle, there aren't many good RPG titles available to play. PQ fills in some of the void with a solid RPG title that partners gameplay using an interesting puzzle twist. The RPG elements of the game are surprisingly deep and will keep fans of the genre interested for awhile with it's addictive leveling-up attributes. Also, this game does a good job at being "available time diverse". If you only have a few minutes to beat one puzzle and put one microstep forward in the single player campaign, you can do that and have your progress saved. If you want to stay glued to it for hours (like I did yesterday on a long plane ride), then it will keep your long-term interest. The game is definitely fun, but has some drawbacks as others mentioned below. Here are the pros and cons:


*Deep RPG elements

*Addictive game play

*Long, deep, and interesting story/campaign

*Decent graphics for its intended purpose

*Excellent utilization of the touch screen


*No variety in the musical score. You literally have to play on mute after an hour of gameplay.

*The requirement of multiple game cards for multiplayer is greedy. I have three DSs for my kids and me to play other games. I am not going to purchase three licenses for this game.

*No WiFi play - this is dissapointing as it would have been a fun experience to play with folks on line.

3.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining but too easy April 30, 2007
Platform for Display:Nintendo DS
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Seeing that there are quite a few reviews on this game already Ill summarize mine as much as possible:

I own 2 videogame stores and have played games forever, my best genres are puzzle, strategy and rpg. I have played a lot of Tetris and Advance Wars to name a couple.

Why did I buy this game?

- Because it was a puzzle/rpg game with good reviews for the DS

Basicaly you take turns with your opponent to join 3 (or more) same-type symbols and you get either:

- Red Mana (for spells)

- Blue Mana (for spells)

- Green Mana (for spells)

- Yellow Mana (for spells)

- Gold (to buy in shops)

- Experience (to level up)

- Deal damage to opponent


- Easy to learn

- Much more than a puzzle game

- Quick to jump into the action

- Combos!

- Computer plays fast and is not stupid

- Non-linear gameplay, go wherever you want on the map

- Four different classes to choose from: Druid, Warrior, Mage

- Two save slots

- You can have npc join your party


- Too easy! My high lvl warrior has spells that kill anything, fast.

- Finished the game in about 8 days playing many hours a day

- Quests are boring (but hey, its a puzzle game remember)

- You have to be very careful with the stylus (sometimes it does something you didnt want to do)

- Lots of the items for sale are worthless

- npcs that join your party do not have much impact on the fights


- Needs a "HARD" mode where the enemies could have double HP or something =)

- Theres plenty of space for improvement and I cant wait for Puzzle Quest II !!
