5.0 out of 5 stars Best $20 you will ever spend, December 7, 2010

= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Bejeweled 3 (Video Game)
Is there anything this game can't do? For only 200 megabits of space, it is unbelievably amazing how much this game has to offer. The HD graphics are out of this world. And that's right from the start menu, to the actual playing of the game.

Bejeweled 3 has 8 different games you can play. 4 of them which you can play as soon as you begin, and then the other 4 games you have to unlock by completing different challenges through out the other 4 games. I have unlocked 2 so far. Which were fairly easy. The other 2 to unlock are a bit of a challenge. Another amazing new feature are the number of badges you could win while playing. You can also build up in rank the more you play.

4 Basic Games:
*Classic Mode - The classic Bejeweled game we all know and love. This part hasn't changed at all. So hardcore Bejeweled fans will be pleased.
*Zen Mode - The endless version of the game that we also adore. However prepare to adore it even more. (Oh, yes! It's possible) The new zen version now has an option that it is just too good to be true. Can't stand the music of bejeweled? (Why anyone would is beyond me) Well, now there is an option to replace the music with actual relaxing sounds of nature. Yeah, you heard me. It's like having a sound machine on your computer. So if the music doesn't do it for you, perhaps the different sounds will please your ears.
*Lightning Mode - You only have a minute to to match as many gems as you can, but some gems have extra time on them. Match an extra time gem and it adds an additional 5,10, or 30 seconds to the clock.
*Quest Mode - The brand new main feature that makes Bejeweled 3 what it s. In Quest mode you have 40 different challenging puzzles to complete. Definitely time consuming!

With all the different ways to play as stated above, it's pretty fair to say that this game is highly addictive. The endless possibilities of the game are so entertaining that it's quite difficult to become bored while playing.

My only somewhat complaint is the music and backgrounds. I am not saying they are horrible. On the contrary the music and backgrounds are very relaxing to listen to, and look at. But you don't get the exact same euphoric feeling that you did from the previous versions of Bejeweled. The music and the background themes are very child like fairy tale oriented. Nothing wrong with that. It's in no way annoying. But what I loved about the older versions of Bejeweled was that relaxing trance like music, and tranquil backgrounds that made you feel like you were taking a slow trip to a futuristic paradise. This version lacks that experience. While the music and backgrounds on Bejeweled 3 are still very nice, the feeling you get from them makes you feel like you took a trip back in time by a few hundred years. Which is just not my cup of coffee (I don't say tea because I don't like tea)

Overall though this won't fail to disappoint any fans of the older Bejeweled games. The creators have definitely outdone themselves, and the game is worth more than $20. So if you're looking for a cheap, but very fun way to relax. Look no further. Happy gem matching!

Never used the music... Since the original I've always just disabled all game noises and used itunes in the background. Aside from that though, sounds good. I'm excited to see a game come out and actually be reasonably priced, and will buy it (if I don't get it within the next 24 hrs *fingers crossed*).

Happy Holidays.

This version now allows hi-res graphics (ie 1920 x 1200), so yeah, it's gonna be a bigger game for all those HD art assets.

"Won't fail to disappoint" means you ARE going to be disappointed. I think (though I'm not sure after the whine about music and backgrounds) you meant "won't disappoint" or perhaps WILL fail to disappoint.But that's just me being picky old me. I played the free trial version and as soon as my wallet can recover from the Christmas spending spree this WILL be my present to me.

Music? We don't need no stinkin' music. I always listen to 4everfloyd.com when I'm playing any game. That's about as euphoric as you can get. I can listen for over 4 hours and never hear a repeat song.
