Overall, it should be commended for its sprawling take on a tried and tested genre. The variety of dynamic scenarios that genuinely affect the gameplay and an overarching story with varied exotic locations make it stand out from its competition. If you're looking for a 'match 3' with more variety, challenge and narrative meat to chew on, this is a good place to drop anchor.
Azkend 2: The World Beneath is another solid enough effort from 10tons that might not do anything we haven’t seen dozens of times before, but proves distracting enough when played in handheld. With so many other better examples of the genre on Switch already out there though, you’re probably better off investing your time and money in one of those instead.
Over the past couple of weeks, I found I could only play Azkend 2: The World Beneath for a few minutes at a time. Beyond that, it just didn’t keep me excited, even with achievements, challenges, and medals. My wife, a big fan of puzzlers, ended up really enjoying the game. But with its routine gameplay, lack of timer options, and subpar Switch controls, this old port is fairly average in my eyes. If you haven’t had your fill of match-three games, maybe grab this one during a future sale. Otherwise, you might want to look at another 10tons game instead.
