    It's a classic for a reason and Popcap continue to demonstrate their fanatical quest for perfection through ongoing dominance of the genre. Get it. You won't be sorry you did.

    Like the previous versions, Bejeweled is again one of the best puzzle games of the year, thanks to its collection of minigames for everyone. A very addictive game, which only flaw is the lack of a multiplayer mode.

    Looking sharp and controlling well, the XBLA version of Bejeweled 3 is easily on par with its PC brethren.

    Bejeweled 3 doesn't bother with pretense of a story, but keeps it simple: entertaining match 3 without unnecessary fluff. Merely solid graphics and sounds, but entertaining game modes for every taste that achieve the "one more round" effect. If you're looking for depth, look elsewhere; if you want good casual fun, it's a gem.

    Is Bejeweled 3 worth the MS points? Well if you enjoy a great puzzle game by yourself then yes, but if you would rather play with others online then no

    All in all, if you have even a mild respect for Bejeweled and you don't already have access to a copy of any version, download Bejeweled 3 without delay.

    If you're looking for a soothing and highly approachable puzzle game with a lot of content on offer, then Bejeweled 3 is a safe bet, it's one of the greats.

    Bejeweled 3 is such a thoroughly enjoyable puzzle game that earlier versions are almost irrelevant. What it lacks in precise controls -- a recurring and unavoidable theme on consoles -- it makes up for with its nearly bottomless bucket of fun to-do.

    Diamond Mine. This enticing new mode has you catching gems atop gold deposits and untilled earth to earn bonuses and dig ever deeper before time runs out. Don't surprise if you awake in a slack-jawed daze to discover that dawn has come and gone.

    The simple fact is that games like Bejeweled are available in far more convenient places than the Xbox.

    There's undoubtedly a lot of depth and longevity for those who buy into it, but 1,200 Points for a puzzle game that doesn't exactly feel new seems like a bit of a stretch. [Issue#80, p.102]
  12. Probably cheaper to buy real gems. [Christmas 2011, p.109]

    Bejeweled 3 is a good puzzle game with a lot of different modes. But it is very expensive for the amount of content you'll receive!

    Bejeweled 3 is a very great and addictive experience. Bejeweled Blitz was a joke, but Popcap has made a great work with this one. Bejeweled 3 is full of content, and provide innovatives game modes like Poker, Butterflies ans Diamond mine. The only problem is the lack of multiplayer. Full Review »

    Bejeweled 3 provides a great experience for your money, with almost infinite re-playability with the great modes that are included, such as Poker and Zen, which are each unique from each other. however, for the amount it costs, it feels somewhat limited, and should be extended in the future for a greater life span.
    Overall, not the best value for your money, but will last almost forever!
