    PopCap has done what modern science can't, made an insanely cheap time machine, capable of transporting you hours into the future with every match of a gem.

    The worst thing you could do is write this game off as a Bejeweled 2 rehash. Yes, they've incorporated all the features that have made Bejeweled our go-to puzzler this past decade, but it's the new modes, mini-games and strategy that will keep you coming back. It's like PopCap went out of their way to top themselves and make sure that we never fully pay attention to anything ever again.

    With a lot of options and modes, Bejeweled 3 It's the best Bejeweled game ever released and one of the best puzzle game out this year. Of course It follows an established formula but everything It's just so fun and polished that any fan of the series will play It for hours.

    If you are seriously looking for a change of pace, there may be enough here to satiate your desire. But if the classic "match 3" gameplay has served you well over the last few years, some spiffy visuals may not be enough warrant yet another version of this timeless classic.

    Another classic by PopCap. It's a shame for the price, a little too high this time around.

    If you happen to be the one person in the world who has never played Bejeweled, this is a great place to start. If you've already had your fill of the series, there's nothing here that will bring you into the fold.

    Bejeweled 3 takes everything great about 2, adds many more modes and goodies, and cranks up the graphics dramatically. Like Plants vs Zombies, this is a game even "serious" gamers should give some attention. The thing that caught my attention immediately was the visual quality - the game runs at *native* 1920x1200 on my PC, and looks breathtaking. No more crummy upscaling like Bejeweled 2 or PvZ. This game actually *uses* your video card, and there are cool warping, scaling, and heat haze effects, as well as beautiful animated backgrounds. There is an addictive quest mode, 4 or 5 more gameplay modes (Poker and Butterflies are great), and lots of "badges" (ie achievements) you can earn in-game. The game is perfection... I can only hope we get a Plants vs Zombies 2 soon that raises the bar on graphics and gameplay the way Bejeweled 3 has. Expand

    Well designed for a puzzle game. One of the best puzzle game ever made. Bejeweled 3 is definitely better than other titles in this series. When I played in 1920x1200 resolution it was really epic and awesome. Also it was very nice in other resolution. All eight modes are awesome. I like butterfly mode and diamond mine mode very much. Zen mode and musics are pretty nice. It's quite hard to finish all the 40 quests in the quest mode, but everyone can finish them if they tried hard. This game is definitely worth playing. do you agree or not? Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Bejeweld 3 consegue ser muito bom. Tem muita variedade de missões, não fazendo dele apenas um jogo de puzzle repetitivo. Só não merece 10 por alguns contratempos. Expand

    Here's my little score system. There are 9 factors, each with a max score of 9, so a perfect score is 81. To convert this to a metascore, I take the amount of points multiplied by 1.23

    Bejeweled 3

    Enjoyment - 7
    Difficulty - 6 (not meant to be difficult, but can be at sometimes)
    Promise - 9 (fully lives up to its description; it is the biggest and brightest Bejeweled game ever)
    Replay - 9 (Every mode, including quest mode, can be played over and over again)
    Controls - 9 (Click here, click there. simple as that)
    Performance - 9 (Only 1 GB of RAM needed)
    Multiplayer - 2 (other than beating your friend's scores, this game is completley single player)
    Story - 4 (Quest mode is the only "story," and can be completed in 1-2 hours.)
    Price - 8 ($20, could be a little less expensive, but still worth it)

    Total points: 63/81
    User Score: 8 (7.7)

    Before you bomb my house, lemme just explain my low 1/10 rating. First of all, match 3 is probably THE most overused concepts in video games, so bejeweled pretty much sucked, but then popcap went on to make multiple sequels! I see why people like this game, it's a fun concept (for about 5 minutes) and I guess the gameplay works, but it just doesn't work for me. Sorry popcap, but I hate this, and I don't see how your level of quality gaming can go down so fast. (Plants vs. Zombies May 5 2009 - Bejeweled 3 Dec 7 2010) Expand
