An all-new hexagonal puzzle board allows for deeper strategy as it reacts to gravity according to a player's location in the universe. This, along with new gameplay elements like hacking leapgates, negotiating with factions, trading commodities and collecting blueprints make Puzzle Quest: Galactrix a captivating new adventure to explore and conquer.

3.0 out of 5 stars A fun failure 2 May 2009
Platform for Display:Nintendo DS
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
It's hard for me to deny I had fun with this game, as I did play it for hours, and have finished it. However, the game has many flaws on many levels. First of all, the user interface has its problems: stylus taps sometimes go unnoticed, which is very frustrating when you lose precious seconds in a timed game or inadvertently make illegal moves for which you are then penalized. Secondly, the game seems to rely heavily on chance, which is felt the most during timed games (which are not optional): there's not much else to do than to try and try again in the hope the right blocks will appear at the right time often enough. Thirdly, the game feels very sluggish due to the fact that it saves your game every 5 seconds, and the load screens do not help either. The story was rather uninteresting, I ended up just quickly tapped through it. There are some good ideas (such as the different races/factions) but they gave me a general impression of being heavily underutilized.

Of course, it's not all bad. Some of its predecessor's flaws have been remedied: more interesting spells/ship upgrades which lead to different gameplay, resources are better handled (mining instead of the mindless running around visiting cities), the constantly respawning enemies on roads have been replaced by leap gates needing to be hacked (generally just once but occasionally a leap gate turns off again and requires re-hacking). The minigames are variations on a single concept, but require a sufficiently different approach to winning so as to keep it interesting.

To summarize, the game is far from reaching its full potential, making it a disappointment. As mentioned before, I did finish it, meaning it must have some qualities, but I doubt I'll ever play it again. I'll be waiting for Puzzle Quest 3 though, hoping it'll be less of a letdown.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very addictive 15 Mar 2009
By Big Jim TOP 100 REVIEWER
Platform for Display:Nintendo DS
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I have to agree with the previous reviewer about the stylus issues. Although they don't appear as bad as he states with his edition, there has been more than one occasion where I have put the stylus on a "gem" I want to move only to find another moves giving me an "illegal move". For those not familiar with this series of jewel matching style games, this can be a fatal error because each screen is competitive, ie whatever I leave, my opponent gets their chance at it and that can be the difference between winning and losing. To be fair though you always get a chance of a retry without any loss to your inventory.

As well as the basic career gem matching game (using hexagonal gems) there are a number of mini games, with variations on this theme so there is good value in that regard,

The RPG aspect of this game still appears a bit tagged on. You don't get a great deal of choice as the game goes on, and the side quests can become a tad repetitive but the bottom line is, if you like any of the many gem matching games out there, you will enjoy this. If not, this is as good a place as any to start.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not as good as the first one. 17 April 2009
Platform for Display:Nintendo DS
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
As a fan of Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords I was excited by this new release. A hex board promised intriguing gameplay possibilities. However, the game doesn't live up to the standards of the original. The weapon options are good but it takes a lot of trading, side quests and hacking to get enough cash to afford decent upgrades. Hacking leapgates is the second most annoying aspect of the game. The most annoying and frustrating aspect is the inexpicable amount of time it takes to transition between screens. This makes the game last too long and has ended up with me getting bored with it. I can't just switch on for a quick 10 minutes play like I used to with Challenge. Nice idea seting it in space and intirguing game board but not as gripping as the first one. Here's to another release soon...

3.0 out of 5 stars Puzzle quest pain 1 Mar 2009
By Runeweaver VINE VOICE
Platform for Display:Nintendo DS
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I really enjoyed the previous puzzle quest games,so i imported this from the states and wish i haddnt bothered,the game idea is the same as the previous titles but set in space,which was a good idea and overall it plays the same.
but the testers on this game should be shot,how could they miss how inaccurate the stylus is,you tap to get a quest just for your ship to fly off to another planet,it isnt too terrible in the main part of the game,but in the timed parts when your opening gates to other areas the split second extra it takes to be accurate means you lose alot of the time,a finer stylus does help alittle but still isnt perfect.
fingers crossed they fix it before the europe release,if they dont i would avoid it on the ds and buy for the pc or xbox360 when its released on xboxlive.

I like this game as I liked the old Puzzle Quest. I was worried from all of that complaints about the defective stylus control but I didn't find any malfunction ..... so the game runs smoothly.
