  1. It’s this blend of casual pick up and play feel, deep, challenging gameplay and copious amounts of activities that makes this a very hard game to put down.
  2. Few DS games are as interesting, as satisfying, or just as fun as Puzzle Quest: Galactrix. Whether you’re a PQ fan or a newcomer to the series, this one will suck you in and keep you happily addicted for months to come.

    Aside from the strict multiplayer set-up and smaller issues, Puzzle Quest Galactrix is a top-notch sequel. If you need a solid portable puzzler or just want a little something different, head to Galactrix's final frontier.
  4. Its handful of small setbacks are just about evenly balanced with its improvements though, so Galactrix still offers an addictive, puzzle-meets-RPG experience that won’t disappoint most fans of the original PQ, as well as anyone looking for an accessible game that still packs plenty of substance.
  5. Galactrix could be a disappointment for the Puzzle Quest fans; the core gameplay is now based too much on luck, and everything else is just not as funny and balanced like before. However, Galactrix is still a good puzzle game. Just not as good as we had hoped.
  6. Galactrix reaches for the stars, but is grounded due to gameplay dominated by chance, minor control issues, and middling presentation.
  7. The game would’ve been better as a stand-alone Bejeweled cart, with traditional game types like Endless, Time Attack, Vs., etc. As it stands, Galactrix adds way too much unnecessary clutter to the core puzzle game. I know that’s kind of the point, but it just comes off as being unnecessary.
