5.0 out of 5 stars Hybrid Theory April 8, 2007
Platform for Display:Sony PSP
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
In the video game world, the puzzle genre and the RPG genre are like apples and oranges. Both are delicious fruits to be sure, yet they're two completely different genres. Certainly genres that no one thought could ever actually come together. Yet here stands Puzzle Quest Challenge of the Warlords. A hybrid of the puzzle and RPG genre, and the hybrid works! Puzzle fans and RPG fans alike will absolutely love this game.

You'll start the game by choosing a profession. A warrior, druid, knight or something like that. And as you go through the game, you'll discover there are tons of RPG elements in play here. You'll traverse worlds, visit towns, collect items and equipment, and most important of all: you'll battle, and this is where Puzzle Quest truly shines.

The only puzzle game which comes to mind to compare this to is Bejeweled, a game several of you have probably played on your PC or cellphone several times over. You're given an 8x8 grid where you'll swap two tiles in order to get three of the same tile. When you match up three tiles the tiles will disappear and three more tiles will drop in to fill the void. If you've played bejeweled, it's exactly that. However, the color of the tiles represents something. The purple tiles, for example, are experience points. Each time you make three purple tiles disappear you'll gain additional experience points from the battle. Skull tiles deal damage. You've also got tiles that represent your mana, and when you take those tiles out you get more mana.

The way in which battles take place is really quite interesting. You and your opponent share the same board and will take turns to clear out the grid.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredibly fun - both an RPG and Puzzle Game July 7, 2007
Platform for Display:Sony PSP
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
PuzzleQuest is an intriguing combination of role playing game and tile-matching puzzle game. There are definitely other role playing games out there - and I own several tile matching games which are this exact same style of gameplay. Somehow the combination of these two games makes the overall gameplay much more fun, because you switch back and forth between the two.

To start with, you can be a fighter, paladin, druid or wizard. You can be male or female, and choose your name and image. These little touches really do help to personalize your experience. Soon you're off exploring your kingdom, realizing that evil exists in the world and doing your part to combat it.

When you come across an enemy - say a wolf or an orc - instead of hitting X to slash at it, you launch into a puzzle game. You might wonder how this wolf is smart enough (or has opposible thumbs) to play a puzzle game like this, but you have to suspend your disbelief a bit here. It's the standard three-in-a-row style game, with a twist. You're not just trying to clear the screen. The colors you remove have meaning.

First, there are red, blue, green and yellow tiles - these fill up your four types of mana. You have a variety of spells you can cast, and each spell requires different combinations and values of these mana types. If you're fond of a spell that requires yellow and green mana, those would be the tiles you focus on removing.

Not only that, but if your enemy seems to be fond of a spell requiring blue and red mana, you would do your utmost to clear those tiles before he can get to them, to minimize his ability to attack.

There are skulls that cause instant damage when you match them up, and other tiles that give you extra experience and cash.

1.0 out of 5 stars Extremely fun game, but crippled by a horrible PSP bug October 6, 2008
Platform for Display:Sony PSP
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
First, let me say that Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords is an extremely fun and addicting game. It beautifully melds an RPG-style game with a challenging (yet not overly complicated) puzzle-type battle system. I'm an RPG fan (not so much turn-based) and my girlfriend loves shape/puzzle games (tetris, etc.).
We both had a great deal of fun with the game UNTIL the devastating bug. I'm not talking about the OTHER bug (roll eyes) that makes your companions useless. While frustrating, I could live without the companions.
No, I'm talking about the common bug (for the PSP) which prevents you from looking at your new spells. Yes, the PSP will crash if you try to look past spell number 6 or 7. Not a big deal? Well, if you can't scroll down to them, then you can't equip them. Basically, you're stuck with your first few spells for the remainder of the game, even as your enemies growth in health and skill.
Worse, there is no rhyme or reason behind when this bug strikes. Some people think it has to do with your level, number of companions, mounts, etc. The point is - unless you want to spend the entire game leveling up without reaping the benefits of improved spells while having to fight increasingly difficult foes, you have to start over. And that will only lead to more disappointment.

I like this game alot, but releasing the PSP version with this bug is unforgivable. They could have even released a patch to fix it, but they haven't (trust me, I've contacted the developer and publisher numerous times with no response!).

So while I can recommend the game based on its gameplay, I ultimately cannot recommend it because of the crippling PSP bug and the refusal of the developer/publisher to address it.
