  1. While hardcore PC fans will find this game too simple for their taste, there is a tremendous amount of appeal to both men and women, and players of all ages.
  2. True to its predecessor, Zuma's Revenge is overall an entertaining game.

    Addictive and it's fun, but it is more frustrating and rage-inducing than other PopCap efforts of late. [Feb 2010, p.85]

    There's very little in the way of any problems I could really find with the game, few criticisms beyond possibly the £15 price tag being a little steep, but ultimately Zuma's Revenge! Is everything a good casual game should be, simple yet challenging, basic looking yet somehow still displaying a graphical quality that makes it's 2D looks spectacular, just like all Popcap games then, this sequel may not provide much new over it's predecessor, but it still has that addictive charm that makes it worthwhile investment for anyone with a few hours to kill.

    Improvements and flourishes make Zuma's Revenge a lot of fun. [Issue#25, p.50]

    The game's also beautifully presented. [Nov 2009, p.101]
  7. The right game for five minutes spare time. Like Solitaire you can always have a shot at the game but there is nothing that makes you stick to it.

This game has charm, excitement, crazy bosses, and a lovable heroic frog! If the adventure mode isn't enough for you, there's plenty of challenges and heroic mode to complete. For all those people who are fans of Bejeweled, Peggle, and other PopCap games, this is a must have game with your collection. Expand

I usually don’t enjoy puzzle or casual games of this nature, simply because they normally look awful and are typically very boring… This game however looks good, it’s challenging and provides entertainment in small doses. However, I’ve never understood why so many games involve matching up 3 blocks of the same colour (this is the same thing in principal). Overall it’s certainly not worth the £6.99 price tag, but picking it up in the sales for a quid or two will certainly not feel like a waste of money! Expand

Flashy powerups do not, at the end of the day, make this game more fun to play. The bosses are easy yet frustrating at the same time, and the humour is rarely above mediocre.

    I was somewhat looking forward to this, but worried "what can they possibly change to actually make Zuma more fun?". It turns out the answer was: not much.

    This game has two areas of play: Adventure and Challenge. In both areas, the game is amazingly inconsistent.

    In the Adventure area, each level has a time factor that allows you to Ace the level. Sometimes the game provides a game environment in which Acing the level is possible, other times it provides an environment in which this is not possible. For example, a yellow ball becomes a bonus ball, yet the game fails to provide yellow balls (to make a match and obtain the bonus) until after the yellow ball ceases to be a bonus ball.

    This same variance occurs in the Challenge area. I have, on several occasions, played a Challenge puzzle at the Very Hard level and scored over 100,000 in the first try. Then deliberately switched to the Medium level and been unable to even reach the challenge score. I have made the experiment of playing the same puzzle repeatedly, and found the game varies widely in the environment provided and how scores are tabulated.

    Having played Zuma's Revenge, and experimented with it in various ways, I'm convinced the game algorithm is faulty. It does not provide an increasing level of challenge. Instead, the level of challenge is random. So the puzzle at Adventure level 3 may take 90 seconds to solve, and the puzzle at Adventure level 10 may take 28 seconds to solve.

    Overall, Zuma's Revenge is disappointing by being inconsistent. Play the free version, but do not purchase the paid version of this game.
