I bought this game with a 90% off coupon so i cant personally say that i got ripped off, but if you buy this game for full or even half price you are most definately getting your money's worth. This overpriced appdiguising itself as a full fledged game is not only boring it is a liar. the gameplay, although there are a fair few modes is simplistic and was done better in 10,000,000. the game tries to sell itself on a 3D gimmick based of using your webcam to track your face and eyes and move the puzzle around accordingly to create the ilusion of three dimensional space and depth. although on their own the graphics are, while not interesting or overly baried, are clean and sharp, but the camera is so bad at the face tracking that the whole game is allways shaking around in a manner that made my head hurt. when turned off on the other hand the game loses any pop it had and the fact that the name itself implies that the game is 3D, selling itself as different because of the 3D loses its purpose.

3/10 just avoid, not offensive necissaraly, there isnt enough to it to be offensive, just a plain bad game.

In the world of video games, if there is a hell it is filled with match three puzzle games.

Now I will preface this review saying I am not the biggest fan of match three games in the first place, but even with saying that, 3SwitcheD is not a good game.

Now I am going to go on and skip explaining what you do in a match three game and focus on what is 'new' here, there are six game modes, 'Snazzy Swap' being your standard game mode that plays like a poorly optimized version of Bejeweled with a combo clock that makes a man/woman's voice go higher and higher as you gain combos till it sounds like he/she is having a real good time from your abilities to match three (And really who wouldn't?)

Outside of the main mode all the other modes of the game... rather suck, 'Falling Stars' is somewhat alright where you start with a blank board and they drop jewels from the top for you to match like a proverbial rat in a cage, but outside of that one the rest are about matching jewels in odd ways such as making shapes or effecting gravity.

The game reports to using "Face-Tracking Technology" which is a fancy word for saying you can turn on your webcam and look around the 3D play-field... but you will never do that because there is absolutely no reason to, the graphics, animations, and enviroment hold nothing special at all and look mediocre at best with poor optimization, and when you play a match three puzzle game, you are not going to be moving your head to get a better angle, this all doesn't matter anyway because none of it works... seriously, it works for like a few seconds then pops back to normal.

And finaly to top it all off it has third-party DRM, you must activate the game using a CD-key on TopWare's servers, so not only is it a bad game, if the servers are down (Like they usualy seem to be) you can't even play it, though maybe that is a good thing overall.

I bought it for a dollar. If I wasn't a sucker for cheap games I'd want my dollar back. I don't think that is a lesson I'll ever learn...

There just isn't anything here that another match 3 can't do better. Some of them are even free; check out the Marvel Puzzle Quest here on Steam for a f2p option.

This game has a lot of negative reviews...

and I'm supplying another one...because it is just an overpriced clone of Bejeweled.

Looks like it might be a nice game. BUT:

It's saddled with some extra DRM junk that requires you to activate it on TopWare's servers. TopWare's activation server for this game are DOWN, and seem to have been that way for months.

So I'm forced to play in DEMO mode...

Avoid this and any game with extra completely useless DRM!
It forces us to pirate the game we payed for legally, just so we can play it.
