Still the Best Match-3 Out There

As of late, the match-3 genre of puzzle games is definitely getting a little crowded, with seemingly everyone trying to copy the formula to make a hit game. Ultimately, of every match-3 out there, Bejeweled is still the best out there because of the sheer variety of game modes available within this game. This game has eight different game modes to choose from, four that are unlocked from the beginning, and four that you must unlock by beating certain criteria. These game modes are a lot of what you would expect from a match-3 game. There is a classic mode where you play until you have no more moves left, a zen mode that allows you to play until you are bored, a lightning mode that has a slightly faster pace, and a quest mode that allows you to complete a set of challenges that allow you to really test your skills in the game. All these game modes, in addition to the other 4 unlockable modes that I will not spoil here, bring an interesting variety of gameplay that is simply not seen in other puzzle modes. Additionally, the overall production of the game is very high quality, with great music and bright, colorful gems falling and exploding when matched. Overall, this is an amazing game, and if you have ever played a match-3 game and enjoy it, you owe it to yourself to try the best there is.

Beautiful Match 3 game

Bejeweled 3 is what a perfect "Match 3" game should be! Not like all those money grabbing sweets crunching impostors. This game has so many modes(Even a quest mode!) that it actually feels like 3 different games all rolled into one. Easily the best puzzle game I have bought for steam!

Just Bejeweled

Yup, this is definitely Bejeweled. This game has quite a few new features over the old versions. However, I find that the badges don't really add any of the motivation that achievements usually add. That aside, the graphics are super crisp, I run the game at 1360 x 768 resolution (although a larger version, my monitor is quite large and likes to be weird with the resolution) which can sometimes (okay, often) mess with games, just fine without any weird stretching issues. If you have a weird monitor like me and like bejeweled, this is definitely worth a purchase, however I can't say it's worth the full $20 seeing as you can play a similar version online for free in the meantime and well, it's just Bejeweled; wait for a sale.You definitely get what you expected out of the purchase though, which is a lot better than most can say about a game.

Fun!

Who hasn't played a Bejeweled game? One of the better puzzle and matching games around. Some new game modes for added longevity makes the game better. It is basic in premise but addicting and fun. You match as many as possible with the higher the matches the more points you get and you keep going until you can't anymore. Its a good casual arcade game that can be played by just about anyone which is great for people who just don't play games much that can play and kill a lot of times. Its certainly worth recommending to parents and friends who will get a kick out of a challenge and are new to games

IT'S BEJEWELED!

Look, this is just bejewled all over again. Same game, same fun, same addiction. Some fun new modes, but it is still the same game you loved for years now. It's good for a laptop game, for something you can play while on the run, or just killing a little bit of time. Of course, the obvious downfall is origin, nobody likes it, it's intrusive, but if you like bejeweled, you can look past it for this iteration. For the price, it's worth it, and is an enjoyable, yet addictive game. So if you liked Bejeweled 1, or 2, then you will for sure enjoy the newest entry in the series, I mean, how much can they really change?

Match 3, the game

You've probably played some version of this on a web browser, smart phone or regular game. It's just a simple time waster, best played in windowed mode with the TV or itunes on. It can be addicting, but it's not something you're going to spend crazy amounts of time on. Some of the final achievements are really hard to get. There's a lot of different variations of game modes, but they are ultimately the same thing of just "match 3 of the same color".

Amazingly addictive fun!

Jewel Quest, as a series, tends to hold true to being fun. JQ3 is no different in that respect. With some new added features and of course some enhanced visuals, prepare to get your bling on because these jewels are ready to rock! Odd that this particular version requires Origin to activate though, but admittedly Origin is definitely improving. Great fun game, get it if you can afford it.
