There's not always a lot beyond what you see on the tin, and Bejeweled 2 seems to fall into that category of games. Swap-three games are not particularly complex, nor should they be, so the question on whether or not a game is good has to more with execution. Bejeweled 2 stands as a healthy compromise between being absolutely bland and having obnoxious amounts of pointless bells and whistles - Bejeweled 1 and 3, respectively. As a result, it's my choice between the three.
Bejeweled 2 features four game modes. Classic is one of these modes and functions, in essence as the original game. Puzzle mode plays like a campaign of sorts, makes you think in different ways and is a decent way to burn through a couple hours. Bejeweled on 'endless' is still, to this day, one of the best stress-reducing games I have. Before the days of Steam, it was a great way to pass large blocks of unwanted time. After all of the puzzles, dozens (hundreds?) of action mode games, and the endless wheel filling up at least three times, I wonder just how many hours Steam doesn't know about.
Nowadays, the graphics have lost most of their shine and appear pixelated on 1920 x 1080. But the game still does its job - simply, which is more than I can get out of its competitors. It is, as well, why I still play it occasionally, even in 2015. And how can you say no to that 90's music?
