WorthPlaying: Puzzler Collection Review

WorthPlaying writes: "To summarize this entire review in one sentence, there's nothing in Puzzler Collection for the Wii that you can't already do in a pen and paper puzzle book, and the book will likely provide you with more enjoyment. Games like this have to be able to offer more than what you would find included in the daily paper, and Puzzler Collection can't even manage that. When I first booted up the game, my wife asked the question, "Why would anyone buy this instead of a puzzle book?" and now, after spending a significant amount of time with the game, I still don't have an answer, which leads me to believe that there is no reason to purchase this title.

The first thing a game like this needs is a wide variety of puzzles to choose from, but that's simply not the case here. You are limited to Wordsearch, Crossword, Sudoku and Fitword puzzles, and that's all. Of those, the only particular game you may be unfamiliar with is Fitword, but you can think of it as a crossword where the answers are already laid out and you have to figure out where they go. It's actually incredibly easy once you get the first couple of words plopped down in the right place, so while it may be new to most, it is by no means the next big fad in puzzles, just a poor imitation of its more popular cousin."
