Puzzle Quest: Challenge Of The Warlords is a brand new, genre-bending title that ups the ante on traditional puzzle games by incorporating strategy, role-playing elements and a persistent storyline.

Set in the Warlords universe, the game challenges players to save the land of Etheria from evil Lord Bane as gamers engage in battles fought by means of competitive, head-to-head "match-three" style puzzle games in one of three gameplay modes: Single-player, Instant Action or Multiplayer. Victory will advance a player's customisable hero, magical arsenal, creature companions and more - ultimately rewarding gamers at nearly every turn and deepening their immersion into the richly diverse world. The game's remarkable mix of classic puzzle gameplay and an abundant suite of characters, customisations, spells, companions, tameable monsters and more provides a fresh take on the puzzle genre that offers endless hours of replayability.

Innovative Gameplay Style: Strategy and role-playing elements that function harmoniously in the puzzle gameboard setting offer a refreshing twist on classic puzzle gameplay, fostering an exceptional depth of investment and enjoyment.

Head-to-Head Gameplay Mechanism: Competitive, turn-based gameplay encourages you to plan, think and strategize against opponents instead of just react like most traditional puzzle games - game difficulty and progression are related to outsmarting your enemies as opposed to difficulty increasing solely through level progression.

    No Penalty For Losing: If you experience defeat, you are still awarded experience points as well as partial gold and then encouraged to try again - this allows constant progression and avoids any feelings that invested play time is wasted.

      Continuous Reward System: At every turn, you will acquire helpful companions, collect or cast powerful magic spells, gather informational "rumours," and obtain items like weapons, armour and money to advance your hero.

        Short or Long-term Play Sessions: Play in long or short doses since the depth of the game does not waver according to the length of a gameplay session - each battle ranges from 3-10 minutes.

          Create and Build a Hero: Choose from two male and two female avatars in each of the four character classes - Druid, Knight, Warrior and Wizard - to create, develop and customise your ultimate hero.

            Build Your Own Empire: Build an empire as you capture cities, build castles and gain a party of companions that will aid you in battle.

              Single-player: Battle against the computer AI as you embark on more than 150 challenging quests.

                Instant Action: Jump in and immediately play continuous battles to level up your character without participating in quests.

                  Multiplayer: Battle live opponents via wireless connectivity.

                   Amazing simple yet effective game, but not the best version

                  | | See all Talicus's reviews (12)

                  Puzzle Quest is a great way for both "casual" Bejeweled fans to enjoy a deep story with an amazing battle system that puts you Bejeweled skills to good use, or for "die-hard" gamers who wish to put a little bit more thinking into their RPG's. The game features a lengthy campaign mode in which you will defeat enemies (mostly quest based, some "random" encounters) by lining up 3 jewels of the same type. This will level you up, give you stats points (which can be put to use differently depending on which character type you have chosen at the start) and unlock special skills which can be put to use after lining up a certain amount of gems.

                  All in all, there is nothing wrong with the concept and it's a great game on the DS because of it's touchscreen, and also playable on PSP, XBLA and PS2 although it's slightly slower.
                  While the Wii version is far from "unplayable ", it requires some precesion with your Wii Remote to line up the jewels correctly, which can be annoying for the more stressed gamers. There's not a very severe penalty to not lining up jewels correctly, but it's quite annoying if the computer enemy can complete a great combo because of a Wii Remote screw-up. Also, some have complained that the text can be a little bit hard to read at times, but I haven't encountered that problem with my Wii, being hooked up to a HD TV with component cables.

                  In short: Great game, must buy on any system, but get it for another system if you can and if it's the same price.

                  This is a very good game for those who enjoy puzzles. I have spent many happy hours taking up the challenges and working my way around the map. I particularly like the fact that there is no stress associated with playing this game, just strategy and consideration of the plot. Enjoyed it immensely.

                   Fun but flawed controlls

                  | | See all davros989a's reviews (4)

                  The previous reviewer described the game well, Suffice to say that after having played several versions of this game across different platforms this has been the worst so far. The gameplay is the same and the core game is very fun and well designed but I cant help but feel like it was rushed onto the wii.
                  The controlls are tacked-on, using the wii remote pointer to select tiles is frustrating and inacurate leading to wrong tiles being moved and much frustration on a regular basis. Two other control options that incorporate the nunchuk or the wiimote buttons alone do not make it any less of a chore to play, you have to memorize button combinations to move between menus and after a few hours of swearing at my TV I gave up and never returned.
                  This is available on almost all other systems either on disc or download, I recomend that if you have another option you take it over this one.
