The original Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords was a wonderfully unique blend of role-playing and puzzle games. Puzzle Quest 2 actually manages to improve upon the formula, with some fablulous new features. One is the addition of "action icons," symbols you match together to gain points to use a physical weapon (as opposed to the spells which are used in the majority of the fighting). Gathering raw materials that can be used to upgrade weapons and armor is also nice. Even the way you move around -- on the streets of towns and through the corridors of dungeons, as opposed to just navigating pinpoints on a map, like in the last game -- is much improved. Puzzle Quest 2 is a worthy successor to one of the more original games of the past decade.

Online interaction: Multiplayer games can be played on both the Nintendo DS and the Xbox 360, but playing through Xbox Live, you can find yourself in a situation where your opponent is a stranger with open voice chat.
