I try to finish it. But it's a business. The crashes are commonplace and completely random. They happen after a couple of hours of game play or do not take place at all. Then, as happened today, it crashes 5 times in a row in just half an hour.

Mamma mia what a torment. Stay away, my nerves are on edge: this game is BROKEN and was left to die since it came out.

PS: you will find someone who says that is not true. Just do research online (not only on the Steam community) to get evidence.

The game is BROKEN and Steam should withdraw it from the store.

Puzzle Quest Galactrix is one of the few games for which I would require a refund

Cerco di portarlo avanti e finirlo. Ma è una impresa. I crash sono all'ordine del giorno e assolutamente casuali. Capita che il primo avvenga dopo un paio di ore di gioco o non avvenga proprio. Poi, come oggi, che crashi 5 volte di fila in solo mezz'ora.

Mamma mia che strazio. Statene alla larga, ho i nervi a fior di pelle, il gioco E' ROTTO e lasciato a morire da quando è apparso.

PS: troverete qualcuno che afferma che non è vero. Basta fare ricerche in rete (non solo Steam) per averne la prova. Il gioco è ROTTO e andrebbe ritirato dallo store. Invito Steam a provvedere.
Ad oggi sarebbe uno di quei titoli per cui chiederei il rimborso al volo.

PIcked this up in a sale at 90% off; and yet I struggle to make sense of it. It feels like the computer is cheating all the time. I make a move, match 3,4 or even 5 gems, and if i'm lucky I'll get a chain. The computer will make a move and the gems added to the board conviently creates chain after chain after chain. The AI's moves is like a vegas fruit machine paying out, mine are like rotten fruit. I guess I could just be unlucky, but I suspect some fowl play going on. Oh and it crashed afer 25mins of play, taken steam with it.

I loved PQ-1, a bit more meh about PQ-2 but this is likely to never be played again..

It's a Puzzle Quest game. So of course it's great but I didn't ever really get into the puzzle gameplay of this game. I played every game in the series and while this one is good the other games are all so much better. Skip this one and get the original Puzzle Quest. If you already played all the other games and maybe want more: go ahead. Buy this.

You spend too much time hacking stargates, which leads to timed puzzles where you have to match certain colors, which are harder than they sound. Also, it crashes too often for my tastes.

I loved Puzzle Quest, kinda meh on PQ2, but my god, do I hate this game.
Played for less than an hour and the computer cheats in this game more than in PQ, and I hate the game board, so confusing to try figuring out, and you are given no practice dummy to try making sense of it all.

Seriously cannot recommend this game, go play Puzzle Quest 1 or 2 instead.
