The true heir to the Puzzle Quest throne has arrived! Puzzle Quest 2 takes the series back to its popular roots. Check out the Puzzle Quest 2 game review.

The original Puzzle Quest was a pretty awesome game. It combined the highly addictive, but simple, Bejeweled with the game system of a RPG. Unfortunately, Puzzle Quest Galactrix was unable to recapture the same magic. However, all is forgiven with Puzzle Quest 2!


The True Sequel

Puzzle Quest 2 takes us back to the fantasy realm. Just like the original game, there are four different class of characters to choose from: Barbarian, Templar, Sorcerer, and Assassin. Each has their own strengths and weaknesses, but you can mix and match their spells with different items you find in the game to create a character that works for you.


Unlike the original game, you move through rooms in a dungeon instead of an overworld map. You will be tasked to do different things in the rooms, each a variation of the Bejeweled game. It's a bit slow-paced, but there is lots of different things to do and you won't be bored.


Battling involves matching three of a kind to charge up mana for spells or matching skulls for a direct attack. You can also match gauntlets for action points that allows you to equip and use items. Looting involves matching 4/5 together to make treasure chests. Breaking down a door involves creating door gems and then matching them to wear down the door.


Still Not Perfect

Controls for the DS is still only touch screen based, which means you might still do a move by accident. Thankfully, there is no longer any punishment for making a bad move. Local multiplayer is back, but without much change. The graphics for the game is a bit low in definition, which is disappointing. But the biggest complaint is the lag and saving. After everything you do, the game will automatically save and this can get annoying really fast.


Overall, however, Puzzle Quest 2 is still a fun game and incredibly great to take on the go.
