Puzzle Quest 2 (DS)

 

Like peanut butter and chocolate or French fries and ice cream, Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlord's seemingly odd mix of genres just worked. It resulted in a surprisingly deep and layered experience from both its role-playing and puzzling parts....

After two years of nothing but rocky seas, Puzzle Quest 2 manages to right the ship and correct the course. D3's newest Nintendo DS game is everything you could want in a sequel, from improved graphics to enhanced gameplay. Still, the freshness of the...

Puzzle Quest 2 Review

 

Puzzle Quest 2 is not the game it should have been.

ItÂ's more Puzzle Quest. The new mini-games are top notch and the refinements to the main puzzle encounters improve the overall experience

The opponent AI is miserable; balance between creature hit points and the amount of damage you can inflict is off; plodding experience through each encounter; virtually all encounters are guaranteed wins

Ultimately Puzzle Quest 2 isnÂ't a bad game, itÂ's just a disappointing one. There are other games in this genre that should get your greenbacks before you invest in this one, including the stellar Might and Magic: Clash of Heroes and the original...

First sequels are formidable tasks for developers, and Puzzle Quest is no exception. The original benefited from the charm and novelty of its premise: an RPG with puzzle-driven combat. With the followup, Infinite Interactive had to keep the gameplay...

Streamlined gameplay, improved graphics

Frustrating map system, removed city elements

It has been three years since D3 published Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords, a game that blended together the RPG and puzzle genres in a way no one though possible.

Prepare to be enthralled once again.

Puzzle Quest 2 is a worthy sequel to the original title. Despite some parts of the game being more simplistic overall, the exploration of the catacombs is far more enthralling than the over world from Challenge of the Warlords. With a lengthier...

More puzzles. More questing. Less satisfaction.

The game is just as addictive as the original Puzzle Quest, and it’s easy to get caught up in the action when there’s always another puzzle or fight ahead. But it's much harder to care about the purpose of your quest, as your hero has no real stake in...

A unique, inventive sequel that far surpasses the original.

Puzzle Quest 2

 

Puzzle-based RPG with no visual violence but scary plot.

Parents need to know that Puzzle Quest 2 is essentially a matching-puzzle game, but that it also has a heavy role-playing element. It is the role-playing aspect of the game that features some violent plot points (revealed through narration and...

This sequel goes light on the role playing, but still presents a compelling puzzle experience that's as enjoyable and addictive as the original.

Good variations on the basic gem-matching puzzle type ; Powerful new weapons and armour abilities ; Lengthy single-player campaign ; Addictive puzzle gameplay

RPG elements are dumbed down ; Bland environments

It's appropriate, then, that the best-looking part of Puzzle Quest 2 is also its strongest element — the gem-matching puzzles themselves. With a simplified approach to its role-playing half, the puzzles are left to carry the game, and they do so with...
