    PQ2 is not only exceptionally good, it looks like it'll have an almost supernatural longevity, an essentially limitless amount of replay value. It's easily one of the best puzzle games (if not the best) on the PSP.
  2. "Brain Age" is the type of game that makes you react; this is a game that makes you think--and even punishes trial and error (which I found out the hard way). [July 2007, p.96]
  3. PQ2 manages to take the best elements from the original game and give us a lot more content, a lot more obstacles, and a lot more freedom.
  4. PQ2 builds on the good foundation of the original and addresses many of its weaknesses, offering a bigger, better puzzle experience.
  5. A great puzzle game with a decided twist in its presentation. It may not be accurate in telling your intelligence but it is a fun game and quite a challenge.
  6. An extremely testing puzzle game that demands on-the-spot logical thinking rather than gut reactions, PQ2 is an intriguing experience backed up with loads of content.
  7. The levels are colourless and lack life, the puzzles aren't anything special and the whole thing is as sterile as a laboratory. [Sept 2007, p.107]
