Jewel Quest Heritage
The Best Jewel Quest Game Ever!
The game is one of the most challenging, and darn right "hard" games I've played. It took me weeks to finally win the first time I played. WEEKS! I have played it 2 more times, and I still get stuck in the last levels. You won't be wrong if you buy...BUT only if you want a challenge, and want to use strategy. Good Job!

Very Challenging Boards
I found this game huge,with many boards and levels to complete. Each level as they got harder, was very challenging.
It was one of the longest games I've played on Big Fish Games,which made it one that I very much appreciated. I must admit, sometimes as the levels got harder, it would get a little frustrating, however, it's what made it so challenging. Again I have to admit, I was relieved to finally see the end of the game,I was beginning to wonder when I was going to see the end, he he, But I did so very much enjoy it. OH! When the game restarts at the beginning, you find yourself in expert mode giving you even less time to get threw each board right off from the beginning, I was like..."Woh, this is to much for me!" hehe.
Thank you very much Big Fish. :)

Want a challenge? Here it is...
Pros: Well thought out M3 gameplay, variety of obstacles and challenges
Cons: Boring storyline, high level of difficulty
Rupert Pack has had the Golden Jewel Board seized from his museum by archenemy Sebastian Grenard, and Pack's latest odyssey takes him through his family's ancestral tree to obtain the evidence Pack needs for the legal fight to get the Jewel Board back. And somehow, playing a lot of other jewel boards is involved while Pack meets various people in the process of doing his research. ;) This is about all you really need to know of the actual storyline of the game, which pops up in short videos periodically throughout the game and is augmented by commentary from the various characters Pack meets in between playing each jewel board. It's an interesting premise, but isn't all that well done. I found myself hitting the Skip button after viewing about six of the commentaries.
However, the M3 gameplay itself is fantastic. Besides the swap style M3 seen in previous JQ games, there are two new modes of gameplay--limited jewels and what the game calls "swaps mode" which is actually limited moves. There are a multitude of obstacles encountered as the game progresses that are not commonly seen in other M3 games and will require a well thought out strategy to beat. If you manage to complete the game, expert mode unlocks to give you even more challenges. The playing time is very long--it took me over 3 months to complete the game on my first run through it and I played every day--and the level of challenge gives it a high level of replayability. The backgrounds and music are soothing and appropriate to the game and not overly distracting.
I gave 4 stars because this game is definitely NOT for M3 beginners. Although it has an untimed option of sorts, it is not a true untimed mode that can be selected from the game options. The level of challenge will be a love/hate thing for most if not all as the later stages of expert mode will try the skills and patience of even seasoned M3 players. But if you want an M3 that doesn't pull any punches, this is one to check out.

This is a long game and a hard game. The first couple generations are not too bad but they get harder and harder as you go. It's worth it though. Each person has their own style board to master & there are 5-6 boards per person.
The plot is not that interesting and some of the characters, like the Docent, get quite irritating when you fail the board & have to try again but the board play is worth it

Greatest brain drain game ever!
I don't know what it is about these JH games, but I love every one of them. Fun, challenging, engaging, and keeps you wanting more. It is a game when you want something to occupy you, but that you can just shut down your mind and enjoy.
Just a simple review for a fabulous game!

Jewel Quest Heritage
Beautiful backgrounds. Storyline takes you through Pack's family tree, with each ancestor having his/her own style jewel board to master. Each time you fail to master a board, an interesting bit of wisdom encourages you to try again. When you fail the board several times, you then get unlimited time to complete that board. This is the longest game in the jewel quest series, offering hours of enjoyable and challenging gameplay.

The Very Best Jewel Quest!
This is a really good long game. I have most of the Jewel Quest games. Beautiful backgrounds and challenging boards.
I really enjoyed this game. I also loved Seventh Gate.
I did not like the newer Dragon game, I thought it was pretty cheesy. I just did the hour free play and did not purchase it.

has anyone ever finished expert level
I I really enjoyed going through the first time - it was challanging and interesting -- but then I got to expert level and I have spent months ( not every day) and still cannot do the top 3 levels. Can't imagine how it can be done...

Highly Recommend It
I really became addicted to this game. Excellent story line and approach to the game. I usually play several games at once and I didn't want to play anything but this one. I made it to the expert level but found that too difficult at times. There are numerous levels of play in this game. It will give you a lot of hours of game play.

This is not an easy match 3 game!
Some levels were hard for me to complete even on Easy Mode lol-- especially the Limited Jewels Mode.
