    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. The presentation may not come alive, but the genius gameplay more than makes up for it.
  3. Top-of-the-line entertainment – a must for anyone who wants a deep, satisfying, and puzzling challenge.
  4. 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.

    Not for the weak-minded, this game is full of hardcore brain teasers that will test your spatial, observational, and deductive reasoning. Fans of the first game will find about five times the replay value crammed into the sequel, thanks to more puzzles, new tests, downloadable every week, and the puzzle editor.
  6. PQ2 builds on the good foundation of the original and addresses many of its weaknesses, offering a bigger, better puzzle experience.

    Overall, unless you were born in a Stupid Hospital or you just don't have the brain capacity to compete, PQ: Practical Intelligence Quotient 2 shouldn't be missed.
  8. Arguably the PSP's best puzzle game, PQ2 may not make you smarter, but you'll have a great time feeling stupid.

    "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]
  10. PQ2 provides a challenging 3D puzzle-solving environment with excellent replay value thanks to the built-in puzzle editor and an extensive online puzzle-sharing system.
  11. This isn't an amazing game, but it is an engaging one. Improving your PQ scores is gratifying, and uploading them onto the PQ2 servers and comparing them to other gamers will be a humble experience.
  12. 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.
