    Puzzle Quest 2's real improvement is in its presentation (which ironically creates some new problems).

    Fact 1: I played the living hell out of Challenge of the Warlords. Fact 2: I tried to love Galactrix, but the finicky input recognition and load screens soured me. Fact 3: Puzzle Quest 2 is the ...

    I was looking forward to this, relocated xbox so I could play it for hours and got on day 1. I haven't played for hours.

    I really enjoy these combo games and have most of them: Puzzle Quest, Kingdoms, Puzzle Chronicles, Gyromancer, and Galactrix. All of those caught my interest immediately or nearly so and I found quit...

    Played the original, but this is better in battles.

    Been playing this game since I purchased it yesterday and find it to be highly additive to the point that I cannot put it down. I do like the aspect of being able to use the weapons I have, which mak...

    Pure monotony, just one way of describing Puzzle Quest 2.

    Rated on July 09, 2010 by 3ltezorr

    I really enjoy puzzle games, offering me a few minutes of play here and there, especially where I find myself not doing anything with abit of time to kill. The only other games I have on the DS are mo...

    Takes 10 seconds to learn but a lifetime to master.

    I played the first "Puzzle Quest" game and I was surprised about the amount of "value for money" and playtime I got for my 800 MS point. Therefore I was ready for the Puzzle Quest 2 and a bit excited....

    Some time ago some genial mind had an idea able to revolutionize the entire videogames world: add to a puzzle game plot and mechanics of a RPG. Basically a player followed a hero during a dangerous jo...

    Looks great, very weak story, disappointing AI.

    Rated on December 26, 2010 by RockySquirrel

    I was a big fan of the first Puzzle Quest, everything just seemed right. I played Puzzle Quest 2 through on hard difficulty... It was a challenge at first as I developed my character, but eventuall...

    Interesting followup to Dungeon Quest which enhances the graphics and changes the system.

    Most of what you liked in Puzzle Quest has been repeated in PQ2. The Bejeweled like Fight mini-game is still there but the graphics have been greatly enhanced to support better resolutions especially ...

    This game is the reason XBLA is so awesome.

    Rated on March 15, 2011 by joshuasmith05

    I accidentally downloaded the demo of this game a few days ago thinking it was a different game. I was blown away by it, and immediately bought the full version. In all fairness, this is the first...
