GAME REVIEW – Gems of War (via 505 Games)

Gems of War is probably THE best game for someone who enjoys strategy and RPG games in a “gem-type” format. For someone new to this type of game, it would probably be overkill for sure, but for me, someone who is new to this archetype of game, it was absolutely perfect.

The music is engaging, the progression through the game is solid, and the voice over acting is wonderful.

I enjoyed every moment of this game. For me, that’s a BIG deal! This game is pure #win for a gem-based game.

Hardcoregamer.com said: “The Match-3 genre is one of the stalwarts of the casual game space, but all that means is that there are plenty of bad products trying to grab the attention of unwary gamers. With its depth of gameplay systems and huge amount of single and multiplayer content, Gems of War is one of the best across all platforms and one of the few high-quality casual games on current gen consoles. It isn’t the most beautiful or artistically consistent game in the world, with an art style that could be charitably described as generic high-fantasy. On the other hand, it is a free-to-play game that rarely reminds the player that they could or should be paying real money.”

Gamezebo.com said: “There are lots of stages to unlock in Gems of War, tons of great artwork to admire, and an engaging story to follow along with. It’s just too bad 505 Games went with a “pay to enter” free-to-play formula. If any match-three puzzle / battle game is worth a simple one-time fee of five bucks or so, Gems of War is it.”
