  1. The puzzle is the main draw for Galactrix with the RPG elements mostly along for the ride. But I will say that there were enough RPG elements to give it a fresh take and the puzzle element was more than worth the price of admission.
  2. As you can tell, I really had a great time with Galactrix – it is well worth the price of admission, and a recommendation for any puzzle game fan.

    The developers really hit on something with the Puzzle Quest formula, and I'll be on board as long as they can keep it engrossing.
  4. Its handful of setbacks slightly outweigh its improvements, but 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. The cast of characters are forgettable, and the story is hokey, but you'll be happy to play the puzzle game and grind your character through the levels indefinitely. [Aug 2009, p.77]
  6. 68
    One for fans only. [Issue#181, p.89]
  7. I'd have happily raved about this clever Bejeweled-style puzzler were it not for its utterly outrageous price. [Sept 2009, p.107]

    Maybe its me, but are reviewers trying to squash certain games??? based on the reviews of pq galactrix and pq chronicles I have AVOIDED thesMaybe its me, but are reviewers trying to squash certain games??? based on the reviews of pq galactrix and pq chronicles I have AVOIDED thes games for months....MONTHS!!! HEY i said freek it I want them anyway today..LIKE WOW...bad graphics? boring? dudes did they issue a patch while u slept??? SORRY I AM LUVN THIS...IT IS STAR TREK PUZZLE GAMED OUT!!! I DONT KNOW ... maybe u see somethin i dont im jumping through leapgates tracking down this thing that escaped. im battlin aliens, running errands for the federations, helping people, the graphics are like bejeweled2 or blur in that they are crsp and pop...eye candy...it plays like bejeweled2 or puzzle quest except its an octogon and the pieces dont move unless u match em and then some slide in to take there place. theres 50 or 60 hours of play here. and different modes of play. mining, battles, and hacking leapgates all play different so u dont get bored. there is a ton to explore and a few trophies utimately this is a puzzle game...however modern warefare, bad comany, and medal of honor are all first person shooters done by different comanys but play pretty much the same...at least with quest, galactrix and chronicles they play wildly different...chronicles will make u say wtf? as it is sideways. if u are a trekkie who likes puzzle games this is it but the nature of the game is on both...be curious and explore...
