Puzzle Quest: Galactrix is a game that improves in many areas upon the original Puzzle Quest, but simply doesn't do enough to make itself anything more than a spruced up casual adventure. It offers many fun deviations on standard match three gameplay and numerous side quests. Unfortunately the sometimes unbalanced difficulty of battles undermines the need for strategy, and a lackluster story and presentation values give little reason to play through the quest.
Fans of casual games will find plenty of fun to be had with Puzzle Quest: Galactrix, but as an RPG, Galactrix fails to deliver a must play experience despite its promising ideas. 3/5
