  1. While there may be superior versions of this game available on other systems, that fact in no way diminishes how great Puzzle Quest on PS2 is. If you haven’t tried it yet, you owe it to yourself to pick the game up — at a budget price, there’s really no reason not to.

    It's obvious that Puzzle Quest was originally intended as a portable game and if you pick up any of the non portable versions of Puzzle Quest it would be best if you play it in small chunks. When played on the side or on the go Puzzle Quest is a very enjoyable time killer. However, if you play it for long stretches repetition will set in very quickly, followed by madness, depression, and a smell of fried eggs. Unless your someone with an OCD style attachment to bejeweled you might want to avoid the home console ports of this game and pick it up for a portable time killer. Not picking it up is certainly a good option too as there are many vastly better puzzle games you could be investing your time in. Full Review »
