Bejeweled 3 is the latest in a long string of high quality games from PopCap. It's not like we don't know what we're buying at this point. What we always get is what's promised: a fun way to distract ourselves in the workplace for five or 10 minutes at a time (when the boss isn't around!).

Whether it’s a 5 minute quick play while you wait for your microwave meal or a good long sessions you are after Bejeweled delivers.
I was going to mark Bejeweled 3 a four our of five, knocking off one star for the lack of any kind of multi-player, but after a think I decided that not every game needs multi-player modes and Bejeweled is definitely one of them. It's the perfect puzzler, whether you have five minutes or five hours there is a mode to suit you. It's a worthy sequel, and a real step forward from Bejeweled 2, and it's very apparent that a lot of thought and work has been put into it. I know some of you may baulk at the 1200 point price tag, but when you consider it also costs £15 on the Mac and PC you can see there is no pricing discrepancy between platforms, besides, it's well worth the money.

Whether you’re a casual player looking to relax or a twitchy expert ready to blast your way to the high-score table, there’s something for everyone here.
The worst thing you could do is write this game off as a Bejeweled 2 rehash. Yes, they've incorporated all the features that have made Bejeweled our go-to puzzler this past decade, but it's the new modes, mini-games and strategy that will keep you coming back. It's like PopCap went out of their way to top themselves and make sure that we never fully pay attention to anything ever again.
As one of literally dozens of similar games on the system, Bejeweled 3 is a little bit hamstrung by its price, especially as it's probably 90% cheaper on the various iDevices, but it is second only to Chime in the genre, effortlessly outdoing the other match-three puzzlers on Xbox Live and more than living up to the PopCap brand.
Bejeweled 3 is as great as any other Bejeweled game, but if you still play another iteration regularly it might not seem new enough. Still, if you have $20 to spare, you’ll get a lot of fun out of it, blissfully color-matching for hours. Don’t say we didn’t warn you (over and over).

Bejeweled 3 is, without a doubt, the definitive version of Bejeweled. Despite the simple premise, there is a wealth of contentand variety to explore here, and if it hooks you, you could easily see dozens of hours of your life vanish. But you’ll enjoy every minute of it. If you love some Bejeweled, then pick this up and kiss your productivity goodbye.
It’s by far the best Bejeweled game yet, which is no surprise, as I’ve not been disappointed by PopCap game yet. While Cataclysm went on to become the fastest selling PC game ever, I can see Bejeweled 3 challenging its sales figures over a much longer period of time. While it’s not a game that hardcore or casual gamers may feel they need right away, chances are they’ll own it eventually — and when they do, they’ll be playing it consistently for a long while. The gameplay, game modes, visuals and sounds are all polished to a shine that matches that of even the brightest jewels on the planet. 4.5 out of 5 is the overall score I’ve given, but had there been online leaderboards, that would have very likely been a 5.

Bejeweled 3 doesn't radically alter the match-3 landscape, but it does provide a very healthy set of play options that are sure to please almost any puzzle game player out there. If you're looking for a good time-waster, Bejeweled 3 will fit the bill nicely.

While you may want to wait for a sale to knock a few bucks off the retail price, Bejeweled 3 is a good investment for longtime fans and a great place for newcomers to start. It's an irresistible blend of top-notch production values, simple gameplay, and endless small innovations to keep that gameplay fresh.
A fine balance of polished gaming and addictive new modes. The world’s most compulsive puzzle game just got even better.
If you are seriously looking for a change of pace, there may be enough here to satiate your desire. But if the classic “match 3” gameplay has served you well over the last few years, some spiffy visuals may not be enough warrant yet another version of this timeless classic.
Bejeweled 3 doesn't do anything particularly earth shattering and it doesn't re-invent the wheel—but it doesn't have to. The new modes are on the whole just fantastic. They all operate under the same rules and controls of the simple game, but require separate strategies and change in degrees of difficulty. I suspect that the key to PopCaps’ success with this series lies within its high replay value. If this is the case, Bejeweled 3's new modes, sights, and sounds is certain to bring many converts over to the church of Bejeweled.
There's something here for every kind of Bejeweled fan, from high intensity timed challenges to more laid back matching options. It's just a shame the leaderboards aren't online, which misses out on a lot of potential for competitive longevity. Even so, the gameplay remains addictive.
Bejeweled's a force of nature. It's simple, colourful and compulsive. Because of all that, it's easy to underplay how well it's put together. And it would be easy to ignore the fact that the series' latest instalment offers a quiet range of clever variations that bring new life to the game.
It hardly matters. If you've played any previous version of Bejeweled, then Bejeweled 3 consists of exactly the mental image you're formulating right now. PopCap know they can't fix something that isn't broken.
There are plenty of similarities between the latest and previous incarnations, but PopCap have achieved their brief of introducing innovative ideas while maintaining the classic Bejeweled gameplay we know and love. It’s the kind of game you’ll go back to again and again, spending far longer than the quick five minutes you originally intended. Well recommended… and not just for the casual gamer.
But the bottom-line reveals that Bejeweled 3 does nothing unexpected. It is the same game that you’ve played before, with a fresh coat of paint and a couple of new modes. Some of the new additions are better than others, but even in the modes that fall flat, the game still remains an enjoyable and addictive time sink. If you’ve played and enjoyed previous Bejeweled games, you will likely find this one as pleasurable as past experiences.

All in all, if you have even a mild respect for Bejeweled and you don’t already have access to a copy of any version, download Bejeweled 3 without delay. Personally, I can now happily count Bejeweled 3 among my mindless gaming distractions, and that’s relatively high praise. However, if you’ve already have a copy of say, Bejeweled 2 – it’s a much more difficult recommendation based solely on the strength of HD graphics and the handful of mode additions.

Released a full year after the PC game, Bejeweled 3 makes for a solid Nintendo DS puzzler. With eight fleshed-out modes and achievement points, PopCap's newest game is easy to recommend for twenty dollars. Just don't go in expecting the Seattle-based company to have reinvented their popular puzzle game!
But it's the safe approach that will make legions of Bejeweled fans happy as they swap jewels and race the clock to better their previous scores. Bejeweled 3 is the kind of game that attracts almost anyone, whether you are a longtime video game player or the grandparent of one. And the best of the new modes are so fun that there are still reasons to splurge for this sequel and ignore the high price point--even if you've explored the depths of every Bejeweled game and clone in existence. Whether you have a few minutes to kill or want to lose yourself for an hour or two, there's something here to satisfy, though you'll surely be struck by a strong sense of deja vu.
Veel modi dus, maar de vraag blijft staan: is het niet te duur? Ja, absoluut. 1500 Microsoft Points is toch zo'n 15 euro. Terwijl je nog voor geen euro Bejeweled ook op je telefoon kan spelen. Daarnaast is Bejeweled een typische game die je even tussendoor speelt. Met andere woorden: als je op pad bent, even zit te wachten bij de dokter, even op de w.c. zit, of whatever. Op zulke momenten kun je je telefoon tevoorschijn halen, even Bejeweled spelen en weer doorgaan met de dagelijkse praktijken. Een Xbox 360 neem je daarentegen niet zo makkelijk mee in je broekzak. Dat maakt de game er dus niet aantrekkelijker op. Wel moet gezegd worden, dat ondanks de prijs, de game wel erg goed is. De acht modi bieden veel diversiteit en puzzelplezier voor uren. Dus heb jij een zwak voor puzzelen op je console, dan is ons advies: haal deze een keer uit de budgetbak. De gameplay is verslavend! Een goede game dus, alleen te duur.
So, Bejeweled 3, eh? Really, all you need to know is that the core game of Bejeweled 3 is nearly unchanged from the Bejeweled formula we all know and love.
