  Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords

| | See all bartman72's reviews (1)

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.

  Amazing simple yet effective game, but not the best version

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.
