March 11, 2009 - Good - Whether or not you'll like this game really boils down to whether or not you like the decidedly Bejeweled-inspired core gameplay mode, because regardless of what you're doing in this game you're never more than a few clicks away from it.
February 26, 2009 - Good - I spent many, many hours on Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords, and I'm predicting that Galactrix will live in my DS and PC for just as long. Like peanut butter and chocolate, the combination of classic puzzle gameplay and RPG game mechanics results in something greater than the sum of its parts.
March 4, 2009 - Good - Puzzle Quest Galactrix successfully reproduces the hybrid RPG/puzzle design that made the previous fantasy-themed Challenge of the Warlords so successful. Even if the overall package doesn't quite match the magic of the older game, this is still a great puzzle title that's tough to put down once you've picked it up.
February 19, 2009 - Good - Infinite Interactive took what worked in Puzzle Quest and expanded it into an even bigger, longer game. That means if you are a fan of PQ, Galactrix will hook you all over again.
March 11, 2009 - Mediocre - Without characters who truly elicit emotions, interesting plotlines, or redeeming qualities other than the addictive puzzle component, Galactrix is one game you may want to skip.
