Based too much on luck, but still can be fun 0

Well, I personally think that this game is a big letdown to all of us Puzzle Quest fans.  Sure, they incorporated plenty of great new  ways of using their puzzle system, but game comes off as lacking in strategy and flow.First of all, the new warpgate hacking system was potentially a great idea, but has turned out to be based almost purely on luck.  This can be very frustrating because as your get further in the game, the puzzle gets harder, which inevitably means you're going to have to plan on...

In space, no one can hear you scream in frustration... 0

Luck and Patience - those two words symbolized the original.  When Puzzle Quest:  Challenge of the Overlords was released everyone knew the game was essentially a Bejeweled clone wrapped in a RPG style adventure.  What they didn't know was an incredibly in depth puzzler that demanded patience, concentration and more then just a little luck.  Fast forward a few years later and we have Puzzle Quest: Galactrix.  Still using the same match 3 or more colours in a row concept but now with even more pa...

Puzzle Quest: Galactrix 0

Puzzle Quest: Galactrix is by the same company that brought you Puzzle Quest, D3. This time around instead of donning armor and a sword, you will be piloting a ship around the universe trying to restore order, and complete quests. For those who may think that this is just going to be the original Puzzle Quest, just re-skinned, you'd be wrong. The action has some similarities but the vast majority of it is different. This review is for the PC version, downloaded through Steam.The graphics look cr...

Compared to its older brother, Galactrix falls by the wayside. 0

Despite being a relatively young franchise, the Puzzle Quest series has grown in leaps and bounds. After the initial offering, Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords was released onto every platform since the Amiga 1200 in 2007, it was only a matter of time before a sequel was to be announced. Oddly, however, Puzzle Quest: Galactrix is no mere iteration of the original – it is a complete overhaul, with a radical new gameplay experience and atmosphere. Whilst Aussie developers Infinite Interact...

Still addictive, but very difficult 0

Galactrix is a game I really want to like.  I adored the original for its blend of classic gameplay with RPG elements.  Galactrix still has those basics, but the difficulty has been ramped up, almost to the point of being frustratingly broken.GRAPHICSGalactrix has cleaned up some of the menus and graphics of the original.  It's nothing that will blow your mind, but it's very pleasant to look at and the text is much easier to read this time.  However, there's one fly in the ointment.  If you are ...

Puzzle Quest Galactrix Falls Way Short 0

Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords was perhaps one of the best titles to ever make its way into the hands of gamers; unfortunately the same cannot be said for its follow-up title. Puzzle Quest Galactrix from Infinity Interactive gave me initially high hopes as I thoroughly enjoy science fiction significantly more than fantasy titles, however I wasn’t prepared for the letdown I was about to suffer. Assuredly, Challenge of the Warlord was perhaps one of the greatest Nintendo DS game...
