hmmm, the demo isnt bad. You're right about the computer cheating though.  :P
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Things were going just fine until I bumped into that goddamn bat. Now I've uninstalled it and I'm not going to touch it again.
Not a winner anymore.

Hmmm. Its ok, but too repetitive for my liking. Even the minigames at the citadel are just variations on the same theme.

Yeah I found it a bit odd that the computer manaed to get something like 5 five-in-a-row combos from purely random drops at the start. I mean the odds must be something mind buggeringly high.
What have you got against intellectual midgets? They're quite smart little guys as far as i can tell.

Thanks for the link.  I'd heard about this and wanted to try it out.

For a puzzle game, it seems to have a lot of depth but, i'll agree it gets repetative quickly.  Regardless of all the additions it seems to be simple connect 4 (actually, 3) with stats...

Oh it's so much much more.

Believe me, this game is crying out for a  Wii console two player makeover.

It's like Bejeweled on CRACK!

I'm up to level 30 now and the game is levelling out. I no longer think the AI cheats, it just sees combos very quickly.

Well this game is infuriating, the extent to which the AI cheats is ridiculous.

And now I have a reason to finally buy a DS Lite because I smashed the top screen with my stylus.

**EDIT**


See?

Just for laughs I'm going to see if Nintendo will replace it again.

I actually ordered this game like a week ago just after xmas should be here in about 2 more weeks ordered it from a Canadain site same place I got pokemon from. Now chance of finding it in Australia plus it's still cheaper to do it this way.

The game came in the mail today and I'm already addicted. It does seem like ti cheats sometimes but once you get some decent spells it makes things much easier.

I've been playing this game again. I think I'm almost at the end... my character is level fifty and I have most of the best armor and stuff. With any luck I'll be able to finish it soon, I'm seeing puzzle boards when I close my eyes.

I used it as an excuse to get a DS Lite. The old DS still works fine... if the screen becomes an annoyance I'll replace it myself.

Once you get tot he end game the game becomes so easy, witht he right combination of spells you can beat pretty much everyone before they even get a turn simply by casting spells that destroy gems which sets off some enchanted armor that recharges mana which in turn does damge to opponent which destroys more gems and so on causing a never ending chain reaction that wins you the battle.

My only weakness on my played character was only moderate speed so if a fast enough opponent got the 1st turn and had the right combination of spells they could get me, fortunelty none of the computer opponents are this good. If you get stuck just use the forge you can make some insane items.
