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 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.

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.
Multiplayer.it (Dec 13, 2010)
Tra i pochi difetti di Bejeweled 3 si nota sicuramente la grafica che, per quanto sia più ricca e animata, è ancorata ad un look ormai datato e imparagonabile con quello di alcuni puzzle games visionari che sono usciti in questi ultimi anni. Per questo anche i 20 euro di prezzo possono sembrare molti. Ma per quanto riguarda varietà, novità e livello di sfida il titolo Popcap è sicuramente ai massimi livelli e può regalare decine di ore di puro divertimento a tutti i fan della serie.

Melkein hävettää, miten paljon tästä tuli innostuttua, mutta hyvä peli on hyvä peli, vaikka kasuaalikasarissa paistaisi. Klik klik.
Worth Playing (Dec 08, 2010)
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.
Cheat Code Central (Dec 07, 2010)
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.
PC Gamer (Dec 09, 2010)
A fine balance of polished gaming and addictive new modes. The world’s most compulsive puzzle game just got even better.
GameFocus (Dec 07, 2010)
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.
Spazio Games (Dec 16, 2010)
Bejeweled 3 è l’ennesimo titolo dalla qualità elevatissima firmato PopCap Games. Tante modalità di gioco, un comparto grafico e sonoro accattivante ed il solito, magnetico, gameplay della serie garantiscono tante ore di divertimento sia agli utenti più esigenti, sia a quelli meno smaliziati. Un prezzo forse eccessivo e una certa mancanza di originalità sono gli unici elementi che non gli concedono un consiglio d'acquisto a prescindere.
IGN (Dec 07, 2010)
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.
Eurogamer.net (UK) (Dec 07, 2010)
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.
Gameplanet (Jan 13, 2011)
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.
NZGamer (Jan 28, 2011)
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.
Thunderbolt Games (Dec 11, 2010)
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.
GameSpot (Dec 09, 2010)
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.
GamesRadar (Dec 10, 2010)
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.
Gameplay (Benelux) (Dec 24, 2010)
HD graphics, meer spektakel, meer explosies, betere geluidseffecten en meer spelplezier is wat deze nummer 1 van de casual games te bieden heeft, maar het prijskaartje is jammer genoeg alweer aan de hoge kant. Maar laat dat de pret niet drukken! Match 3 tot je erbij neervalt!
Rock, Paper, Shotgun (Dec 10, 2010)
I wish there could be a mode of the game where you at least get a couple of chances for the grid to rearrange (as with PopCap’s Chuzzle), or a timed mode where you’re racing against a counting down clock for each level. Let that clock be tougher to beat with each level progression. Essentially, let it be Zoo Keeper, I suppose. It seems such an obvious mode to include, its absence is disappointing. Then high scores would be at least heavily weighted in favour of skill. That aside, this is a splendid puzzle game. It raises Bejeweled to the high standards I expect of PopCap games, where Bejeweled Twist fell so very short. It really is tremendous.
