Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords :: DS & PSP Review
Puzzle Quest turns a gem-matching online game into a wild adventure for DS and PSP! Here's our game review.
The Nintendo DS and Sony PSP just got a game more addictive than breathing! Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords takes the online game Bejeweled and combines it with a fantasy adventure. You become a hero and battle the evil Lord Bane by... matching gems? Gary's got the 411 on this super-cool puzzle game with his game review.
Conquering the WorldCrushing villains in Puzzle Quest is done by matching gems on a grid, but with a twist. You take turns moving gems and each 3-of-a-kind match earns you mana, gold and experience - or deals damage if you match skulls. The mana lets you activate powers, gold buys items and experience gives you more powers. As you play you can explore a fantasy world, capture monsters, train mounts and even conquer cities to expand your empire!
Tons of Fun!Not only is Puzzle Quest packed full of awesome action, cool stuff to do and awesome [KWLINK ]anime-style[/KWLINK] artwork, it's also easy to play! Anybody can get into the gem matching puzzle game action, you can even just play quick games and not worry about all the adventure stuff. Plus, it's good for your brain because it makes you think.
Game FlawsThere are two problems with this game. The first is that sudden combos can appear out of nowhere and totally mess you up, but that can happen for you or your opponent so it's not too big a problem. The second problem is that it's so fun you'll get addicted and forget to do stuff like eat, sleep and go to school!
Addictive ActionIt's awesome! Anybody can pick it up and have fun, but with all the extra adventure action it can keep even hardcore gamers hooked. Plus, multiplayer mode lets you put the smackdown on your buddies. Woo hoo!
