The AI hates me...,
This review is from: Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords (Nintendo DS) (Video Game)
I enjoy puzzle games. I love playing games like Tetris and Bejewelled. I love storylines. I like having a purpose to playing my game - collecting money, items, friends, weapons etc. Therefore, I was expecting to like this game, since it's basically a mix of the two. However, it can get quite frustrating at times as the AI seems to be designed to hate you with a vengence unequal to almost any other and will go out of it's way to ensure that you don't win a "battle" (i.e. the puzzle) by giving your opponent more random free turns and skulls needed to reduce your HP. I have played battles where I have lost in two turns due to this. It's not enough to put me off, but if you tend to:
- get outraged at unfairness (and I have had to restrain myself from throwing my DS at the wall) and;
- get annoyed at the fact that you will need to play loads of useless battles to earn enough skill points to win some of the battles essential to the story line,
then this game is not for you. But otherwise, play on!
