Fun, but it gets tediousI loved the first Puzzle Quest, despite its shortcomings. I only lasted a few hours with Puzzle Quest: Galatrix, so I wasn't too excited about this one. I tried it on the 360 first, and the Puzzle Quest 2 interface really didn't do it for me in that setting. On the DS, however, it's much more natural...moving to pre-set spots on a screen seems much less silly when you're using a stylus (compared to an xbox contoller, where I was wondering why I couldn't just move around freely). This game doesn't have as much of that "If I don't allocate my stats perfectly then I'll run into encounters that completely trounce me" that the first game had. I've had a few encounters that I had to take a few attempts at before I got a creature down, but that's been the exception, not the rule. Still, I'm getting close to L40 and I find that nearly every encounter takes...a while. I basically do an encounter (or clear a room), try to progress a quest a bit, then turn off the DS when I run into another room I have to clear. It's just getting tedious to keep having to fight, at this point. Still, the game is fun, the upgrade system is nice (although I wish the game would offer more guidance so I don't feel like I'm wasting materials) and the variety of encounters (picking locks, searching rooms, discovering spells) is fun. PS., I mostly wrote this review because I don't think this game's a 10. I was poking around the Gamestop site, looking for high-rated games to try, and noticed that this game only had a couple ratings, both 10s. I don't want people to think that Puzzle Quest 2 is going to be something revolutionary or fantastic....because it's fun, but far from phenomenal.

Puzzle Quest 2 - A little Different, but All Good!I cannot tell you how long I have waited for Puzzle Quest 2. I am still playing Puzzle Quest 1, but I think I will be adding it to my collection to give it a rest. Puzzle Quest 2 has all the moves and ideas of the original, but NOT A BIT of "Puzzle Quest Galactrix" Thank goodness. (I actually complained to D3 for putting that game out with Puzzle Quest in the title) Just picked it up about 2 hours ago and I am really liking all the changes. You are thrown right into the game storyline. There are a few differences, some different symbols and you don't have to choose your Morale to level up your hit points. It does that for you. Graphics are good and controls are tight. Assassin and Templar are the new classes along with Barbarian and Sorcerer. The storyline starts immediately (no training and gabbing with the Queen). You learn new tricks while playing. And the BEST thing about it is that you no longer have to keep going into OPTIONS to turn off the music every time you play and No Annoying voice telling you "Your Hero Is About To Die" Hallelujah!!
