    I heard it was a really good game... Is it ?
    I really need to put something on my DS-X... I was stuck in FF3 so i deleted it and i finished Advance Wars so i deleted it too. Now i only have MarioKart DS...

    If you do play it, give it a chance to grow on you. I wasn't crazy about it at first, but I later became addicted.

    You've got a flash card man, try the game out! If you don't like it delete it and move on to another game.

    Check the DS essentials listing here for more game ideas, and check what games have high reviews from game sites.

    Agreed. Definitely give FFIII a chance if up enjoy RPGs. If you get stuck it's usually not for long. Just be sure to read and take in everything NPCs say to you.

    As for Puzzle Quest, I'm currently hooked on it. I also agree that the AI is horseshit. If you sit there for a bit the AI will give you a hint of what you should do, but unless it's a 4-of-a-kind or a skull match, do something other than what the AI suggests. It will screw you every single time. The enemy AI isn't too bad, but if you listen to your AI hint-helper thing you'll be doubly screwed. [​IMG]

    Great game, though. The RPG elements are pretty deep once you get into it. You can build your castle / city (as well as attempt to conquer others') up in order to train steeds, or research your skills; you can capture enemies and use them (though I find it very difficult); and you have weapons and armor, of course. The spells you can perform make the game all about strategy, and you'll only begin to grasp the huge amount of depth there after you've played it for a while.

    Puzzle Quest is great - innovative & addictive.

    Someone says the AI cheats, it's true he gets like 8 turns in a row sometimes. But it's still usually beatable and loads of fun.

    Stuck in FF3? GameFAQs is nice.

    Anyway, puzzle quest was hard give up cold turkey, but I did it. Some people stay up til sunrise playing this game.

    Off topic: Wow. Judging from the topic title, I thought it was a Testing Forum topic (or at least was hoping that it was).

    On topic: Personally, I don't like Puzzle Quest. A lot of others do though.

    I beat Puzzle Quest...played it for 2 months in the washroom. Excellent passtime for when you're on the crapper.

    I'm going to have to agree with Nubia here, FFIII was boring, the constant random battles just get irritating. I would recommend Animal Crossing but I don't know if that works on the DS-X yet. Puzzle Quest is good, but Planet Puzzle League is the best puzzle game I've ever played. That and Tetris DS.

    I played puzzle quest up to level 36.

    Took me about 30 hours I guess.

    Stopped playing it for no real reason but maybe I'll go back & beat it one day.

    My girl also played it to level 30 & stopped.

    Now, i'm addicted to Puzzle Quest. It's fun when you do some 5-times hit...
    Anyway, i think i'll download FF3 again. I've got space for it. It's gonna take me a while to come back to the Thingy Tower, but it's the only cool RPG for DS(until the other Final Fantasy, i think it's FF7 or something)

    I played Puzzle Quest for a couple of hours, then stopped. It's not the kind of puzzle game I like. I don't think combining puzzle with RPG works with me, even though I like both puzzle and RPG. It's just not right.

    Had a battle against a Wight last night and, I tell you no lie, the dude had 15 turns in a row. Not only was he getting a bunch of four-of-a-kinds, but he has a spell that allows him to go three turns in a row (plus damage). It was insane.

    I'll usually get pissed off for a while, but then 30 minutes or so later I'll be jonesing to play some more. [​IMG]
