    While we miss the tactile feeling of physical pieces, the incredible customization options make Puzzle Arcade a great option for both dabblers and jigsaw enthusiasts. [Feb 2009, p.85]

    Does what it says on the tin rather well. [Mar 2009, p.94]
  3. Puzzle Arcade is far from a terrible XBLA game, but make sure you give the trial a go before handing over the 800 Microsoft Points.
  4. Good work on the controls and on the board, but the virtual media is simply not suited to such a game style. After a larger puzzle your eyes will hurt from the strain of peering at the screen, and the fun seems to have been lost.

    Even with a good number of modes and solid controls, Puzzle Arcade can't offer the same sense of accomplishment that doing a real jigsaw puzzle provides.

    Stupid, stupid game. [Issue#35]
  7. This puzzle is missing way too many pieces.

    A brave attempt at something which shouldn't have been attempted in the first place. [Apr 2009, p.104]

    Ton of modes/options, some real cool ideas. Lots of plau value for $10, nice little game.

    Unique and interesting. Seems perfect for what it does. Not all games have to be more than what they are intended for. Exactly like making Unique and interesting. Seems perfect for what it does. Not all games have to be more than what they are intended for. Exactly like making real puzzles without the fear of losing a piece somewhere in the process. Full Review »
