This is the second game I've played in this series. Really enjoyed them both. Took about 4.5 hours to complete this whole game, but being a puzzle game, it has high replay value. I liked this one more than the original game. It still has the same overall game mechanics but without the rotating of the board. The original was more challenging for sure.

There's not really much to say. It's a standard match 3 game like Bejeweled. There's the 7 Wonders theme, but no story. I still find this to game to be the most fun in this genre besides Bejeweled. After playing both the original and the sequel, I will continue to play other games in the series.

This is your typical Match 3 like Bejeweled. In each level, you match up 3 or more stones of the same color to reach your goal. There are also extra objectives on each level, like making a match with a certain color in a designated spot. There are different powers to get that you can charge up and use which make the game a little easier. Lots of secrets to unlock. As you progress, you get stones to help build a wonder.

The graphics are quite colorful. The music is non-offensive. No complaints about the controls.

Not a bad little match 3. These don't keep my interest for long, but this had enough going on for it that if I wanted to play something like that, I might as well pick it. Recommended if you like Match 3 puzzle games and are looking for more.

Really nice Bejeweled-like puzzle game. It has a lot of extra levels, bonuses and there is, let's say, story around it ;) Gfx on medium level, music a bit annoying... Frankly it's not worth €9,99 but if you will find in any bundle I recommend to take it! 6/10

Match-3 game with extra goals. Not as involved as later titles in the series, and if you're on a post-Vista and/or 64-bit system, you'll need a custom patch to play it. I still recommend it if that sort of casual time-killer is your thing.

It's a generic match 3 puzzle game with some extra goals tossed in. You have to break all the background pieces by matching blocks on them. This gets really tedious for the bottom row and corners, so much so that you pretty much HAVE to have a block destroying spell with you at all times. You also have to get a large, immovable block all the way down to the bottom of the screen. This is also annoying but not nearly as bad as getting all the background destroyed. You can unlock a secret world by matching a certain color in a certain spot, but you can only do this once per world. Therefore, it takes at least 3 playthroughs to maybe come close to getting it. It's pretty generic. Nothing special in graphics or music, and is in my opinion not worth $5. If you like match 3 puzzle games then for half off maybe. Otherwise this is an easy skip.

It's difficult to fault 7 Wonders II too much because it does what it's supposed to do, but it never strays too far from a formula that's been done many times over in recent years. And the fact that it doesn't really blow you away with any of its visual of musical components doesn't help matters. 7 Wonders II is certainly a good enough puzzler, but ultimately its inherent similarities to other 'match 3' puzzlers keeps it from standing out from the crowd. The game doesn't get anywhere near hard and I completed the main aim of the game in just over an hour, thankfully I only acquired this game through a bundle.

Humankind cannot gain anything without first giving something in return. To obtain, something of equal value must be lost. That is 7 Wonders First Law of Equivalent Exchange.

Starts game. Waits. Nothing. Tries again. Waits. Nothing. Searches Steam forums. Visits site. Downloads fix. Applies fix. Runs game. Works.
This Steam game apparently doesn't run on Windows 7 without a proper fix.
So, what's the game like ? In short: Bejeweled clone, number... 58 by now ?

"7 Wonders 2" is 1 better than "7 Wonders" but still 3 worse than "being savaged by a bullymong". Ho-hum match-3 medicority. 7 Wonders: AAM is much better.

You must know that 7 Wonders II is not the best puzzle game out on Steam. There are better ones, maybe even cheaper, but you also need to know that this isn't so bad. Almost 10 hours that i have spent playing this game is enough to say "yup, it wasn't waste of money". If you enjoy 3-match puzzle games then think about getting 7 Wonders II. Maybe not for full price, but on sale - why not.

Keep in mind that it may not work on modern operation systems - i'm still on Windows XP so i haven't got any problems, but if you are using Windows Vista/7/8 then you can have extra trouble getting to run this. Remember to always check system requirements to avoid any problems.

I guess I recommend this game, but only when it's around 1€/$. Wouldn't pay 9.99.
