W sumie gra ma tylko jedną wadę - w wersji PC jest niestety dość mało przenośna, a nie można zsynchronizować postaci z PSP czy Nintendo DS, na które też została wydana. Ale jeśli konsoli nie macie, a do tego lubicie RPG i nie boicie się myśleć (bo walka w kulki myślenia jak najbardziej wymaga), Puzzle Quest warto zobaczyć nie tylko dlatego że to jedna z najbardziej nowatorskich gier ostatnich lat, ale przede wszystkim dlatego ze to również jedna z najbardziej wciągających produkcji ostatnich lat. I to niezależnie od tego, czy macie akurat możliwość poświęcić jej 10 minut czy też kilka godzin!

Puzzle Quest remains one of the best things we've seen on the casual gaming radar to date. You're highly encouraged to take up arms and see for yourself why, choice of fantastical subject matter notwithstanding, this one's still a legend in its own right.

Puzzle Quest — одна из лучших казуальных игр последних лет, пускай в ней и нет лоска, присущего проектам Mumbo Jumbo и PopCap Games. Найдя путь к сердцу любителей фэнтези, крохотная Infinite Interactive уже готовит новый удар — космическую Galactrix.

Puzzle Quest was a pleasant surprise when it was released on handhelds earlier this year, and the PC version continues its tradition of excellence. The unlikely marriage of puzzle gameplay with RPG mechanics makes for one of the most addictive experiences available to gamers today. The sound hiccups are unfortunate but not enough to dent its armor. It's also a bit cheaper than the portable versions. If you haven't played Puzzle Quest, yet, this is a no-brainer download. If you have, though, whether or not the PC version warrants another purchase is a question of how badly you want to play online.

Kortom, Puzzle Quest voegt een erg leuk RPG-tintje toe aan de klassieke puzzelgames met als gevolg dat de game plots gevaarlijk verslavend wordt. We hebben je gewaarschuwd!
Common Sense Media (Mar 20, 2007)
The aim of this unique game is to provide purpose to the otherwise monotonous experience of stringing together three similar icons to make them disappear, over and over again, puzzle after puzzle. And while it takes a bit of imagination to get used to the idea of puzzles supplanting battles, the role-playing shtick does provide a kind of contextual framework and grander objective to puzzle-solving that's missing from just about every other game in the genre. You'll likely find yourself propelled from one puzzle to the next not just because the puzzles are fun (which they are), but also because you feel that recognizable RPG itch to keep playing just a little longer until you level up your character one more time. And it's a good thing that added incentive exists; Puzzle Quest offers dozens of hours worth of puzzle-solving, which, even with a moderately engaging story to help drive things along, can make things a bit repetitive.

Despite all the flaws this is a good game. It does nothing brilliantly, and not much that badly. If you like the puzzles then this will provide you with lots and lots of fun, if you don’t then this is definitely not the game for you. As you spend most of the time in the puzzle mode the limited depth of it may get to you, but the other factors of the game will keep you entertained. It must be noted that this can get pretty addictive with the urge to continue playing until that one monster is dead emerging at times. If you like puzzles and don’t mind some RPG elements thrown in for good measure then this really is going to be a great game for you. Due to the addictiveness of the game and the good points of it, I will highly recommend it to any puzzle game fans out there.

Sure, its story and aesthetics are so hackneyed and earnest that they make you feel like the developers were joking when they conceived them, yet there's still something engrossing about Puzzle Quest. The minute-to-minute gameplay is tried and true, and when you factor in the long-tailed character progression, well, let's just say it's a wrap. Puzzle Quest's designers are certainly onto something here.

Puzzle Quest entfaltet erstaunliches Suchtpotenzial, und das mit einfachsten Mitteln. Dem unverwüstlichen Farbkombinationskonzept gewinnt der clevere Rollenspiel-Aufsatz neue Dimensionen ab - der Stufenanstieg motiviert, neue Zauber locken. Auf Dauer fehlt trotzdem die Abwechslung. Alle Gegner spielen sich gleich, die Handlung dümpelt belanglos, Aufgaben wiederholen sich. Mir ist außerdem ein Tick zu viel Zufall im Spiel. Dennoch, ein netter Spaß!
