    Bejeweled 3 proves that the series is still the best when it comes to the match-three puzzle genre.

    Certainly isn't lacking in content or fun. [Dec 2011, p.86]

    In my opinion if you haven't yet tried out Bejeweled, buy Bejeweled 3. It's fun, has more modes and is excellent at keeping you playing.

    It's the good old Bejeweled 3 as box version for the NDS. There is nothing special and so the price is a bit too high from my point of view, because the PS3, PC and X360 versions are cheaper and include Zuma and Peggle as bonusgames.

    Released a full year after the PC game, Bejeweled 3 makes for a solid Nintendo DS puzzler. With eight fleshed-out modes and achievement points, PopCap's newest game is easy to recommend for twenty dollars. Just don't go in expecting the Seattle-based company to have reinvented their popular puzzle game!

    As it is though, with the new modes and its release on the DS, Bejeweled 3 might be the game I'll lose a few days on… or a few nights… y'know, I haven't picked it up in the past six minutes, I think I should play a little more.

    Feels like a step back after the more challenging Bejeweled Twist. [Jan 2012, p.117]

    It may not stray from the original, and it may not do anything to convert those not already enamored with gem matching, but when the original is so good, there's no reason to change anything.

    Bejeweled is a good way to kill a little bit of time, and PopCap has done a good job with adding variety to the game types, but it is still a shallow title that doesn't require a lot of time, energy or commitment, and something that could get tired very quickly.

There are tons of modes to play and many options for "quests" (mini games). It works well on the DS because it's cheap, portable, and easy to play with the stylus. There are a few odd missteps, like the weird deep voice that exclaims whenever you make a good move, but overall it's definitely worth the price if you're looking for a fun casual game. Full Review »
