While the normal game play is pretty much the same, the quests offer some pretty good challenges.Same with the extra games that pop up once you have gotten enough points, like the ice storm etc. Zen mode is as always relaxing for the music and graphics alone. And I always still feel like being in farscape every time I travel through that wormhole to the next level. Crisp graphics and very cool music.

Bejeweled is back
I haven't played this games in years. When I saw the latest version, I thought what can you really do to this game? Oh my God! I'm so addicted to this game it's not even funny! Love the voice over guy. Like the music. Just really like everything about this game.

Surprisingly Good Game
I have to say that I was surprised, even a little stunned by how much I liked this game. I thought the first Bejeweled game was boring and lacked challenge. Thankfully, this game has both excitement and challenge. It has multiple ways to play which makes it seem like you're buying four Match-3 games in one. The graphics are awesome and the game fills my 17-inch computer screen without those two black spaces one either side of the screen. I think anyone that gets this game will not be dissapointed

Beautiful graphics, challenging puzzles
I loved Bejeweled and Bejeweled 2, so I was glad to see number 3 was out. I tried the demo and thought it was really good. The graphics are definitely a step up. The backgrounds are beautiful - very exotic and detailed.
I don't usually play the timed versions, preferring Zen mode so there's no feeling of franticness. So, it was nice to see that even in Zen, there were badges awarded for numbers of jewels matched in one turn, etc. That made it more interesting, as did the fact that, unlike in Bejeweled 2, it didn't take forever to fill up the status bar and move to the next level. There are also more types of power jewels to aim for and use.
I did try some of the time challenge modes and found them quite daunting, so if you're the competitive type, you'll love this game.

Fun matching game
If you like matching games this game is for you. It have different mode of level of challenge. Every challenge have sub level of challenge. It can be hard in some instance but mostly it's rather straight forward. It have some surprising new features a little different from Bejeweled 2. Even after you beat the game you will still like to play this game over again.

Better than Bejeweled 2
I thought this one is better than Bejeweled 2. It has more variety of game play. Bejeweled games are fun and a simple way to past the time, sort of old school.

I have been sucked into the vortex
For years I have stayed away from these games as in essecence they were to me just '5 minute fillers' which is fine if that is your bag but I kinda always wanted something a tad more satisfying. The only one of this type I kind of enjoyed was Zookeeper on my DS as it had different challenge modes, I know the first two of this series did, and I did get the delux bejewled 2 which took it a tad further but then this version has taken it further still. You can play the normal and Zen versions (though I am struggling to see the difference between those two versions), then you have the quest and lightening versions.
The quest is what I played most, though be warned it is short, I completed this (albeit have been playing for quite a few hours), but have now nearly finished this mode and nearly got 100%. This to me is a shame as I liked the different modes in the quest (such as balance of gems, wall-blast etc), as to me there was a lot more strategy involved.
Certain games are 'unlocked' after you reach a certain level on the main game (for example if you reach level 5 on the main game you 'unlock' poker. This is good as this version is slightly different to the 'quest' version in that there is skulls to avoid by having to make better poker hands. So again more strategy involved.
I have purchased the game (got it on a special deal), but whilst I don't think I will play the normal or zen game a lot value for money for the other variants are more than met.
This version has therefore sucked me into the vortex, but I don't think others in this genre can match to this series (IMHO)
