So I am battling a guy, I bring his armor down to 18, attack him, and he still blocks my attack, thus receiving only half damage. Then he proceeds to attack me, hits a critical (criticals can be blocked just like any other attacks), my 88 armor does absolutely nothing and I get damaged for 1/3 of my health. That is all you need to know about Puzzle Quest 2. Blind luck and nothing other than blind luck. Art style is cool I guess.

This sequel is as much fun as its predecessor while offering a very different, very enjoyable style of “dungeon exploration” gameplay. Highly addictive with elements of both a fantasy role-playing game and a puzzle solving app combined. I highly recommend this game for anyone who enjoys either. Well worth the investment!

The original Puzzle Quest felt novel with the idea of using a match 3 game to determine the outcome of an RPG battle. This is mostly more of the same. However I think it loses a bit by trying to go further in the RPG direction as that tends to add more time between match 3 games. And the story is pretty generic. It's a delicate balance.

I'm a little on the fence here over whether to recommend the game as I grew bored and never finished it, but you might enjoy it if you haven't experienced this kind of game.

This is a novelty I picked up mostly thanks to the Extra Credits crew pointing it out in their "Games You Might Not Have Tried" series.

I'm a sucker for match-3 types of games, I'll admit it. Add on an RPG system and this is the odd hybrid you get that I'd like to sit down and properly give a longer take on rather than just a few idle minutes fiddling around with how things work and being surprised at how actually very well the pieces all fit together.

It's weird, but in the most fascinating ways. Certainly worth a look, at least.

Puzzle Quest 2 is an interesting take on the Bejeweled formula; adding an rpg style element to the mix. I do enjoy the game for what it is, but it does get a bit stale after the first few quests. The game basically becomes repetative dungeon crawling, where you roam from point A to B, forced to fight battles along the way. The fights themselves aren't very challenging and the only thing that seems to change is the increasing length of time for each battle, as the HP of everything increases as you level up.

The game is a nice time killer but if you haven't played the first one, I would recommend that over this game as it actually poses a challenge.

I finished it but didn't like it very much.

It's just so damn dull, i just wish that leveling up would change the grid a bit, the way you interact with it. But, it's always the same stuff for whatever hours you may take.

It took me two years to finish it because i lacked motivation. Bah, don't bother with this one.

Worse in every way to the original which was plagued with issues. Main game is fun but every time they stay it is terrible. Mini games are not well thought out and not fun and main machanic is restricked in certain fights which makes certain builds worthless. I have tried to give both these games time but to many flaws make them unplayable. DO NOT waste your money on either of these.

Developed by Infinite Interactive and published by Namco Networks America, Puzzle Quest 2 is the sequel to the award winning Puzzle Quest: Challenge Of The Warlords. This title is a match 3 puzzle roleplaying game and certainly one of the best in the genre. Your chosen hero is tasked with reclaiming the once peaceful village of Veloren from the evil clutches of the demon Gorgon. Many fans claim that this title is not as heavy on the R.P.G. elements as the first game and that the story is just not as expansive as the first title and I would definitely agree. With that said, roleplaying elements are still present albeit slightly lighter in application. You pick from four different character classes and earn XP as you do battle across the outskirts of Veloren. As you level up, your earned XP will allow you to upgrade a number of abilities such as Strength, Agility, Intelligence, Stamina and Morale. Your character is also able to equip a number of weapons ranging from swords, axes, bows, etc. and even a flintlock pistol...one of my personal favorites I have to say. There is also a wide variety of armors, shields, spells and poisons at your disposal as well, however, some of these items are specific to the character class that you have chosen.

Gameplay is quite similiar to that of Puzzle Quest: Challenge Of The Warlords so fans of that title will immediately feel at home. The goal is to match a set of three or more gems in order to earn mana and action points. Mana powers the equiped spells in your spellbook and action points allow you to attack with your chosen weapon or devices. At the conclusion of each battle a certain amount of gold and experience points are awarded as well as the possibility of loot. The puzzle battles in this game, in my opinion, are some of the best you can play in this genre. This title is extremely fun and addictive like these games typically tend to be. Some days you could log on and play a few quick battles for fun just to get your fix and other days you could find yourself playing for hours on end in one sitting. The story, while not as grand as the first title, is entertaining and makes you want to continue playing to the conclusion. Aside from the basic puzzle battles, there are also quite a few unique minigames to play where you can earn additional treasure and experience.

Graphically, this game is the best looking match 3 puzzle R.P.G. available even better looking than Gyromancer in my opinion. Visually, it takes everything that Puzzle Quest did and just polishes it to perfection. The isometric game world is highly detailed. You will see lots of interesting things in the backgrounds of the many dungeons, castles and structures that you explore. The puzzle battlefields are gorgeous and vivid. The gems are beautifully animated and extremely detailed. The hand drawn character art and attack animations just look fantastic. Sound effects and music in this game are also implemented just as well. The score fits the fantasy theme of the title perfectly and does it job competently yet I have to say it's still not as great as the musical scores in Puzzle Quest and Puzzle Kingdoms. I actually downloaded those soundtracks and find myself listening to them quite often because they are just that great. The sound effects are crisp and hard hitting. When you make a match three, combo or cause a cascade of gems to drop you definitely know it. Also, when you use a melee, ranged weapon or a spell the sound effects are phenomenal. I particularly love the click click boom of my flintlock pistol...so awesome! A pistol in a fantasy game...don't even ask it's just awesome and you know it is.

I've spent quite a few hours in this game and will continue to do so in the future because it's just so entertaining. Fans of match 3 or puzzle/R.P.G.'s should not be dissapointed in this title. It's definitely one of the better games of the genre and anyone looking to try one of these games for the first time should get either this or the much acclaimed Puzzle Quest: Challenge Of The Warlords. Game on!

Game can be addicting, but there are some things that do not make sense that just make this game frustrating. For example, there are times when the enemy can block you yet you can block them only 1/3 of the time. The side quests and maps are just as confusing and become boring. Now, the first Puzzle Quest is 100 times better than this one and I would highly suggest that one over this one.

I can't for any reason give this game a good review the original was a far better game. This game becomes repetitive with each battle becoming longer then the previous one. On top of which instead of programing a better AI with more strategic skill no. Instead to increase difficulty they make the AI set itself up by purposefully changing the gem drops so it all ways gets good cascades. so instead of have good abilities that actually make the game your stuck with abilities that are more or less useless.
unlike the first game where there was a lot of customization your stuck with a very limited number of abilities and no puzzles to boost items. also they got rid of the experience gems and gold gems that rewarded the player for longer matches. Why because like always the game designers instead of improving on an already good game decided to focus on graphics rather than game play. If I see one more game company do this I'm going to scream. So seriously just buy the first game its better and a lot more fun.

If you haven't already, play the first Puzzle Quest, where you battle warlords all across the lands, build your castle and tame ferocious beasts and gain their powers.

Unless you prefer to battle hordes of rats after hordes of rats after hordes of rats in someone's damp basement, in which case this game is for you.

The gameplay is of course much more polished and varied, but with the grand atmosphere of the first replaced with you being pest control, it becomes a grind with nothing to motivate whatsoever.

Puzzle Quest 2 deviates in a good number of ways from its predecessor. Most notable are the changes to mana and that you now have a weapon. Overall I'd say it was a good change, as it doesn't feel like a recycled version of the first game at all, while still having the same basic gameplay.

With the mana changes, it's harder to become godly, but it also feels like every level gain is a really tiny improvement. Heavily investing in one stat has diminishing returns (which is fine from a balance perspecive). Enemies scale up a bit faster than you do, and once dead they stay dead, so there's a strange sort of progression going on there since you can't grind forever.

Similar to the first game, the encounter rate is through the roof. Fortunately you can skip a good number of encounters by simply ignoring the monsters. There's far less quests, but most of the quests in the first game were pretty pointless to begin with, so I guess this is can be seen as a good thing.

Fortunately the mini-games are toned down and varied, and luckily opening treasures has no failure. So it's nice to have freebies every now and then to break up the monotony.

The story, as best I can tell, bears no relation to the first game. Not that either one is special, anyhow.

If you like Puzzle Quest 1, I'd say this is a worthy addition. If match-three games aren't your thing, this game won't do anything to appease that feeling. I'll give this an 8.

After enjoying the original Puzzle Quest, I thought I'd give this a spin. It's much less fun than it's predecessor, it's very repetivite and not very rewarding. As you progress enemies take longer and longer to kill but offer no challenge whatsoever.

Avoid!

Takes the Puzzle Quest formula into Diablo-like dungeon crawling. Started out addicting, but became really repetitive - too often fighting the same enemies over and over. Not nearly as good as Puzzle Quest 1 or Puzzle Kingdoms, and doesn't hold a candle to Might & Magic Clash of Heroes.

And, at least as the Assassin, it was too easy. Switched to "Hard" difficulty shortly after starting to play, and almost never lost a battle.

That said, there's still fun to be had here if, like me, you like the match-3/RPG genre.

6/10.

Coming after the complete mess that was Puzzle Quest: Galactrix, Puzzle Quest 2 returns to the tried-and-tested Puzzle Quest formula we know and love with some enhancements to the gameplay and a streamlined story/quest mode. It's a good game (I wouldn't have played it for as long as I did if it wasn't) but leaves some things to be desired.

First things first: the game is *incredibly* slow compared to its predecessor, both in character movement on the map screen and within the gameplay itself. And whilst the story of the original didn't set any new records in originality, Puzzle Quest 2's story is both completely unrelated to the first and so boring that I just skipped it entirely. They have also stripped out large chunks of the sidegames in the first game (castle building, mount training, item creation, etc) and replaced them with laughably easy "unlock doors" and "disarm traps" minigames.

The addition of the new weapon system makes things interesting, and opens up a new strategy to the game. But towards the end of the game I found this just made the game a cycle of building up weapon points, and unleashing them on the enemy - ending the fight within a few turns of doing so and reducing fights to a monotonous routine. The armor/blocking mechanic is also interesting at first, but to be honest it just makes the game slower.

That all said though, it's still a good game. Three-in-a-row game mechanics are simple and addictive, and I don't feel that the time I spent playing the game was wasted, but I don't see myself replaying it any time soon due to its slow nature (compared to the first game that I completed at least five times.)

If you like three-in-a-row games then you'll like this. But I would recommend the first Puzzle Quest a lot more than its sequel.

Okay, imagine Puzzle Quest with new classes and abilities and equipment except there's no world map (everything is zoomed in and room-based), EVERYTHING is about 3x slower (walking speed, combat animations, unskippable messages), 80% of battles are just cannon fodder, and there's not much dialogue or plot. Also there's no main base, which means no research, mounts, sieging, or crafting.

Meh. Alright game, but not as good as 1.

PQ2 was very streamlined compared to PQ1, though not as streamlined as Marvel Puzzle Quest. Compared to 1 there are neither elemental masteries nor elemental resistance. Your weapon is now an activatable ability, which you use a new type of gem to activate. The weapon becomes your primary form of damage.

The fights are alright for the most part, except for the one or two times your weapon is replace by a very, very awful item that you have to use to kill a tough boss. That fight ruined the game for me.

The overworld isn't a map so much as it is an explorable world, but with that comes confusion and annoyance. There are secrets to be found but they're not very well hidden, and the paths are almost always blocked by a beastie of some sort. You know, except for when they aren't, so you go around the entire dungeon just to avoid one fight. I don't recall if monsters respawn or not, but I believe that they do not.

The entire experience was less enchanting than that of PQ1, but that doesn't mean this is a bad game. It just doesn't live up to my expectations.

VERDICT:
Buy (8.5/10)
Completion Time: ~30 Hours
Bottom Line: "For RPG and Bejeweled fans, this game is excellent."

PROS
+Addictive gameplay
+Tons of quests
+Beautiful world

CONS
-Meh story
-Gameplay MAY become repetitive

REVIEW

Starting as just a lone traveler, your character stumbles upon a village, where after further investigation and goblin slayin' you are tasked with saving the realm from evil. I'll admit, it's not the most original story, but I didn't clock 40+ hours into this game for nothing. It's the addictive gameplay mechanics that kept me hanging around.

This game is a combination of Bejeweld style puzzle matching and RPG. By matching certain gems, you fuel your character's abilities, deal damage to the enemy, or build strength for melee attacks. As your character levels up, you gain access to better weapons and better abilities. Figuring out a strategy against your foes is incredibly rewarding, and if certain spells are timed right, your character can quickly come a formidable opponent. Leveling up my character was a blast, and with each new dungeon came numerous new enemy types for me to test my skills.

There are also tons of side quests to complete, given to you by the many village folk you come across on your travels. There is never a shortage of things to do. Also I cannot forget to mention that this game is gorgeous. The hand-drawn worlds and creatures are a sight to behold, and some of the bosses are unforgettable.

The only negative is that once you nail down your strategy, gameplay can begin to feel repetitive. While I was constantly rewarded with new spells and weapons, I found early on that a single spell combination was the most effective for my character, which meant I was repeating the same tactics over and over, making things a bit mundane. This is why I encourage experimentation instead of taking the boring route like I did.

For RPG and Bejeweled fans, this game is excellent. You get a ton of bang for your buck, and you will find yourself coming back time and time again.

O dear god. I got this game through a humble bundle, so it wasn't a waste of money. It started off fun, basicly it's a deeper version of Bejeweled where matching colors gives you points that you can then use to activate certin skills in order to defeat your opponent. Leveling up gives you access to new skills. It was fun until about halfway through the game, where I kept thinking to myself "I've gone this far, I might as well finish it." But it just kept going. Battle after battle. Fight after fight. I rarely changed skills once I found an effective combo. Monsters rarely even posed a challenge, even towards the end, and the final boss was easily dispatched. The "combat" just got so repetitive I was praying for the game to be over. The odd thing was, once I beat the final boss, the game continued, as if I wanted the chance to go back and beat every single encounter that I may have missed. No way. I cant say this game is bad, but I can only recomend it if you REALLY like Bejeweled, and even then it's a chore. It was suffering to "beat" it. No way in hell would I suffer through trying to get all of the achievments. I didn't try online, so I cant say, but I doubt playing against a human would be much better.

I am a huge fan of the original Puzzle Quest, having played through it back in the day on a nintendo hand-held. That game was broken in some ways, but not in a bad way, more that if you were careful and managed things just right, you could eventually create an amazingly over-powered character that could 'lock down' the whole board and win by the first or second turn.

Sure that made multiplayer pretty unmanagable, but for the single player game it actually gave a certain level of domination satisfaction of 'here is my incredibly over-powered end game character let me just splatter the fields of puzzle-battle with the remains of anyone foolish enough to challenge me'.

I mention this because I guess having seen how over powered people could become in the first game, it seems like they made it a priority to 'fix' that in this second outing.

While the core gameplay survived intact, it seems like they have gone to great lengths to reduce the utility and natural meshing of the various skills and secondary mechanics to the point it honestly feels less like an RPG dressed in puzzle elements, and more like a basic match 3 game with some very light rpg traces sprinkled in.

The 'overworld' is now quite limiting and slow. While there are a number of options to go and do, they are often so removed and seperated that you will spend as much time wandering slowly from screen to screen as you will actually battling bad guys. Additionally it feels like a number of the areas you 'could' possibly go are more or less artificially blocked by bad guys way higher level than you to the point that in the end there really is only one fairly linear line of progression along the enemies that won't just smash you routinely.

Its not truly *bad* in that the core matching and fighting is ok, it just seems like here in the second outing, the overall rpg tone is honestly a net negative, not positive like it was the first time around.

Great Game, especially for those who do not have fast reflexes, take as long as you want to solve the gem puzzles!
