Interesting average gameFinka_Karfein | June 17, 2012 | See all Finka_Karfein's reviews »
Puzzle Kingdoms follows the story known from Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords. Pity that the plot in PK is poor apart from funny moments thanks to Drong. And do not expect side-quests. There is no sign of them. Gameplay is innovative. You can plan your attacks, save power for later crush or deal many less painful stings. AI does not stand and watch and repays you with the same and more. It's good also that there are numerous units, spells and artifacts to choose from but bad that the gameplay is highly repetitive and thus monotonous. Graphics are good when it comes to dialogues (what else can you do in such a game) but what makes it bad is the spell effects. There are nearly non-existent and similar with most of the spells. Puzzle Kingdoms is saved however with great soundtrack which keeps the player going further. Multiplayer is nice but you cannot battle with prepared hero from the single campaign and there is no online play, just hot-seat. The game is an average one but for people tired with Puzzle Quests and Gyromancers it will be a nice alternative. I can recommend you to buy PK but only while it is on a really good hot deal because 20$ is an utterly ridiculous price (even 10$ would be still a bit too much).
Good gameplay, limited multiplayerArthan | May 22, 2012 | See all Arthan's reviews »
Music is best in series yet but it's let down by limited multiplayer and minor visual bugs. Gameplay is rewarding most of the time but some annoyingly difficult enemies may tempt you to /ragequit.
