  1. There are several game modes, all of which are quite fun and challenging – as long as you can stop yourself from using unlimited hints in the Puzzle Mode.

    You should play Bejeweled 2. It's that simple. It's great, time-wasting fun worth having for 800 Microsoft Points, just because you can.
  3. Bejeweled 2 Deluxe brings the classic puzzle game to the Xbox 360 but doesn't make enough significant changes to make it stand out from the pack.
  4. If puzzle games are your thing, it is definitely worth it. Otherwise the price may be to steep for you to warrant a buy.
  5. It's simple, fun and it looks especially pretty on the 360, but there's not much new here. [Issue #16, p.77]
  6. For those who found themselves addicted to the PC Flash game, Bejeweled 2 might be worth the full download for hours of gem matching fun, but for others the free PC download may still give players their fix when necessary.
  7. It's reasonably fun, but "Jewel Quest" is better, deeper, and more addictive. [Jun 2006, p.62]
  8. But what ultimately takes some of the gloss off Bejeweled 2 isn't so much the overly harsh conditions required to earn achievements or unlock the extras, but the limitations of the control pad itself. Unlike the original PC version, or Zoo Keeper on the DS, you can't be as instant and intuitive when you're moving a cursor around the screen.
  9. When it comes to puzzle games on Xbox Live, Hexic HD feels fresher and Astropop proves more exciting.
  10. It's not as good as "Hexic" and that game is free. [Issue#5, p.120]

    Not the best, but it's a fun game to just pick up for a quick game.

    Not a COD2 or PDZ, but at the price it is great. It is all my wife plays on the $400 machine :).
