Some more reviews for your enjoyment:

Gamespot gives it a 7.5/10

It's appropriate, then, that the best-looking part of Puzzle Quest 2 is also its strongest element--the gem-matching puzzles themselves. With a simplified approach to its role-playing half, the puzzles are left to carry the game, and they do so with aplomb. Puzzle Quest 2 is a fun experience that'll keep your attention for the 15 or so hours it'll take to complete the game (without tackling its many side quests), and despite its RPG-lite approach this time around, it's a game that's easy to recommend.

Joystiq gives it 4/5

Ultimately, Puzzle Quest 2 manages to add some new strengths while still clinging onto some old weaknesses, resulting in a game that's addictive and engaging in short bursts, but slightly repetitive in extended sessions. Though a more visually appealing version is due out for XBLA next week -- at half the cost of its DS counterpart, no less -- it's still seems like an experience designed to be played for a few minutes, folded up and placed neatly in your pocket.

G4 gives it a 4/5

So Puzzle Quest 2? Yeah, it's the real thing: no hexagons here. Despite a fairly extensive list of tweaks and changes, the basics remain intact, so anyone who's played the original game should feel at home. In-game tutorials will cover everyone else, which is fortunate given that the joke of an instruction manual is all of three pages.
