  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. It’s not quite as well-rounded an experience as its predecessor and it can be frustrating at times, but ultimately the combination role-playing and 3-match puzzle game formula is still very much a winner here.
  3. Still addictive, but lacking the original’s impact. [Apr 2009, p.121]
  4. A worthy follow-up and well worth your time if you are an enthusiast of the gem-matching genre. [June 2009, p.75]
  5. It’s not Peggle-addictive, but there’s depth beyond the casual puzzle game.
  6. If you know Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords you know how to play Puzzle Quest: Galactrix. If you are a fan of puzzle games you’ll most probably like it.
  7. More complexity doesn't automatically create more fun. The successor to Puzzle Quest, the entertaining mix between role-play elements and puzzle game, turns out to be uninspired and boring. It's more complex but confusing, even for experts. There are less rewards to motivate you and the AI doesn't work properly. A candidate for the list of bad sequels.

    Value for money Puzzle/RPG hybrid (with more of an emphasis on the puzzles this time around) and it's Australian made! I especially like the sci-fi setting. Expand

    Terrible.

    The storyline is very lackluster and boring which means there is nothing to keep you intrested in searching the solar system. The
    solar system segments are again pointless and forcing you to hack a jump gate within a certain time limit is just again boring and annoying. You can use "PSI" but runs out fast. The actual puzzle bored was intresting as it actually made it intresting and kept you on your toes until the AI which im starting to think is just copied from game to game just plain out cheats. Starting thinking wow that was a lucky combo of bombs / shields together but after 6 matches it was just to plain obvious that the AI either knew what was next or was generating what it needed. Tbh the game is just boring but great if u love losing. Expand
