On the grind with Puzzle Quest 2

Puzzle Quest 2 is so far, pretty much exactly what I expected, if more underwhelming.  It’s like a less ambitious version of the original.  Which already left me queasy after I marathoned through it.

The difficulty just doesn’t seem high enough.  You’re rarely at risk of losing a match.  And when you are it feels arbitrary, because you’re more likely to lose against a random skeleton as your are against a boss.  The biggest bummer so far however is that every match feels the same.  Maybe it’s the character (Assassin), but every match is a struggle to build up enough magic to combo out the opponent in the same big magic strike.  It doesn’t really matter which opponent it is.  Some take more of a beating, but it’s always: combo, stick with a dagger, rinse and repeat as needed.
