"Zuma's Revenge" ist die Königsklasse der 3-Match-Spiele! Dieses Casual-Game bietet alles, was das Spielerherz begehrt: Herausforderung, Humor, tolle Hintergrundmusik, eine Vielzahl von Soundeffekten, eine Grafik voller Atmosphäre und eine sehr schöne Story, mit einem tollen und zugleich lustigen Ende. Für Freunde der 3-Match-Spiele ist das Abenteuer des kleinen grünen Froschs ein Muss! Doch auch alle anderen sollten sich mit dem Floß auf die Tiki-Insel wagen und die Geheimnisse oder besser gesagt "DAS" Geheimnis der Insel ergründen, denn Zuma würde sich sicherlich sehr über ihre Hilfe freuen. Erfahrene Spieler werden ca. 4 bis 5 Stunden benötigen, um zum Herz der Insel, dem Vulkan zu gelangen, Stunden voller Spaß und Spannung!

While a multiplayer mode is sorely missed, with Zuma’s Revenge PopCap has given gamers exactly what they wanted, a new title that’s even better than the original.

While hardcore PC fans will find this game too simple for their taste, there is a tremendous amount of appeal to both men and women, and players of all ages.
Game Shark (Oct 22, 2009)
True to its predecessor, Zuma’s Revenge is overall an entertaining game. Like many casual games (especially those made by PopCap), it starts off deceptively easy, but slowly progresses to a much more challenging and difficult game. At later stages, you’ll need some seriously quick reflexes and a keen pair of eyes to be able to catch the balls as they race rapidly towards the skull. Ironically, this leads to the biggest issue with both Zuma games, especially when dealing with frog-in-the-middle boards. The repetitive movements of spinning the frog in circles with your mouse can take its toll on your poor wrist, so Carpel Tunnel sufferers, you have been warned.
Total PC Gaming (Sep 15, 2009)
It’s all great frantic fun and looks charming, since Zuma’s Revenge supports graphical resolutions nearly three times as detailed as the original. With Zuma’s Revenge PopCap has maintained the core gameplay that made the original so compelling, while adding tricks that make it feel fresh and fun again. The various modes and challenges beyond the simple Adventure mode to tackle this fun and down-right addictive puzzler had us playing long after we should have stopped.
Worth Playing (Oct 24, 2009)
PopCap's games seem to be hit after hit, and Zuma's Revenge follows the trend nicely by taking a successful existing formula, tweaking and adding to it while being extremely careful not to wreck it, throwing on a nice slathering of solid artwork and a little sound work, and offering it for a reasonable $20. People who are looking for a game good to kill five minutes between flights or brain-bending work-related problems now have a new, beautiful and highly enjoyable game to add to their collections.
PCActu (Sep 15, 2009)
En somme, cette nouvelle aventure de la fameuse grenouille aztèque est, pour les amateurs du premier opus, une réussite. Plus beau, plus long et plus varié, le jeu apportera un grand plaisir aux fans et ils redécouvriront de surcroît la simplicité du gameplay qui a fait le succès de son précurseur. Pour ceux qui n'ont pas même entendu parler de Zuma, ce titre est un très bon passe temps, difficile certes, mais qui vous fera libérer un "ahh" de soulagement quand vous aurez mené à bien votre mission. Pour la modique somme de 19,95€, vous avez là un jeu occasionnel sympathique et excitant. Zuma's Revenge! se présente comme un casual game, et c'est, ni plus ni moins, ce qu'il est.

If you have played the original, the game is almost a copy of the Zuma, however if you're a fan and want something a little different, or if you're after a good puzzle game, than Zuma's Revenge is the perfect indulgence to both casual and hardcore gamers! Go Puzzle Games!
Zuma's Revenge! is everything a good casual game should be, simple yet challenging, basic looking yet somehow still displaying a graphical quality that makes it's 2D looks spectacular, just like all Popcap games then, this sequel may not provide much new over it's predecessor, but it still has that addictive charm that makes it worthwhile investment for anyone with a few hours to kill.

If you're a newcomer to the series, this iteration is well worth the investment. It's a highly polished game with instantly accessible gameplay, a smooth difficulty curve and some fun new power-ups. There's scope for both long-term strategising and mindless ball-blasting. It's also ideal for playing whilst watching grisly ITV1 crime dramas and wondering whatever happened to Jerome, anyway. It may not be a whole new ballgame, but Zuma's Revenge is certainly a fun one.
Destructoid (Sep 15, 2009)
With Zuma, what begins as something simple gradually becomes deeper, as you start to see patterns and strategies spinning in your head. Zuma's Revenge adds to that new power-ups, stages, movements and even boss battles. Puzzle fans, expect to be engrossed. One of the best and most addictive puzzle games ever has now become even better and even more addicting.
IGN (Sep 15, 2009)
Did you enjoy Zuma? Of course you did, and you'll enjoy Zuma's Revenge; just don't expect a reinvention of the wheel. And if you haven't played Zuma: welcome to our planet. Can I interest you in a fun match-three game?
GameZebo (Sep 16, 2009)
Minor shortcomings notwithstanding - mainly, being disappointed at how similar this sequel is to the original game - Zuma's Revenge still has that PopCap magic. Fans of twitchy match-3 games will no doubt enjoy this evolutionary, rather than revolutionary, puzzler.
Thunderbolt Games (Sep 30, 2009)
All in all though, I had fun with Zuma’s Revenge. When you’re still digging the game, there are a whole lot of levels to plow your way through. And while it might not have the longevity of some of their other titles, it’s certainly a step above PopCap’s recently released Bookworm Adventures 2. With a few improvements, this could have been a top game in PopCap’s lineup. As it is, Zuma’s Revenge offers a simple and challenging game that will certainly please both fans of the original and newcomers, but both groups will probably play it once and be done with it.
