Bejeweled 2 Deluxe
I'm definitely the odd one here. I didn't like this game. after reading the reviews I was psyched to play it... but if I was one who played JUST FOR SOUND EFFECTS it would be a great game. I played the trial for 35 min and STILL had not one single power up and not even a simple shuffle. NOT my kind of M3.

This game seems to terminate arbitrarily, based on how fast you can rack up scores. If you hesitate a second, the game times out. It's programmed so that it helps you through the first level, but once you reached level 4, it gives you almost no time to look around. The canned voice is irritating, and serves only to throw off your timing. I made a score of close to 900,000 but only because I was consistently racking up combinations. It was pure luck. Sometimes you'll get "timed out" after 4 minutes. It requires some skill, but mostly patience, because the game is no fun at all.

Boring, boring, BORING!
This is the first time I have played any Bejeweled game that was downloaded and just found it boring. I managed to last for 9 whole minutes so please keep my comments in that context.
What first turned me off was the very simplistic graphics. Most games I buy are because of the graphics. I am a visual person and love to look at beautiful things. This game does not fit in that category. And although the game play was fast, it was choppy (Windows XP) and most of the time the announcer was unintelligible.
I played Classic and got to level 3 with a "no more moves" message and the game ended. Excuse me? What kind of a game ends that quickly? Even though I was high scorer, who cares.
There are so many more beautiful and entertaining match 3 games available. I wouldn't play this game if it was handed out for free. Just seemed like a waste of time to me and as I said before BORING! :P
Just an FYI... I tend to be the voice of opposition. I only add a review if I feel very differently about a game than the general consensus.
