    Let me put it this way: If Puzzle Quest is a super hot girl, Puzzle Chronicles is her homely friend with a nice personality.
  2. It's almost disappointing that the whole fantasy trapping that the puzzle game has been wrapped around got some short shrift - but the puzzle game at the core is quite simply good enough that the game delivers what it is supposed to - a puzzle game that serves up some story, some setting, and some consequences to the aftermath of each round that you play.
  3. Puzzle Chronicles tries its hardest to be just like its big brother Puzzle Quest, but it's hard to live up to such lofty goals. The core gameplay is fun, challenging, and easy to pick up, but it lacks the addictive quality that other puzzlers posses.
  4. The latest and ugliest Puzzle Quest spin-off is still addictive, but its gimmicks are getting very old.

    Weakened by a bland story, uninspiring graphics, and grating voiceovers. [July 2010, p.84]
  6. Overall, if looking for a puzzle game on Xbox Live I would tell you your money is better spent elsewhere on a better polished and actually fun game.
