  1. And while the core game is inviting, easy to grasp and simple enough for casual dabbling, there’s no sense of accomplishment as with Puzzle Quest.
  2. We would've liked more character customization, the ability to complete puzzles out of sequence and online play, but we had fun flipping tiles and beating opponents.
  3. You don't need to be a Neopets fan to enjoy this puzzle/adventure hybrid.
  4. Othello has been left in obscurity for far too long, and Capcom and Griptonite have done a great job creating a "next gen" version of the rule set to draw new folks in.
  5. Children who are fans of Neopets could do much worse than Neopets Puzzle Adventure, as could serious fans of puzzle games. While the game is not quite of Puzzle Quest's caliber, it still offers a solid and fun experience that is only hampered by a lack of depth in its story mode.
  6. It detracts from the enjoyment value when a "puzzle" game is almost more of a game of chance.
  7. Nintendo Power

    Surprisingly entertaining. [Holiday 2008, p.87]
  8. 60
    Overall, Neopets Puzzle Adventure is a good game for its target demographic -- children who will use the game's many unlockable codes to access various digital goodies on the Neopets website.
  9. While it's a competent integration of popular license into popular design, the constituent parts don't perform to the best of their ability, and the result is inessential and often bland, even though it's easy to sit and play contentedly for several hours.
