Bejeweled, originally a flash game on the PC, is one of the most addictive and simple puzzle experiences you can find, and it's now available on your Xbox 360 in Bejeweled 2 Deluxe for Xbox Live Arcade. Offering four different modes, instead of the standard two, Bejeweled 2 makes a few changes to the original gameplay, but for the most part, it's identical to the first game. Though it's a faithful adaptation of a classic and popular game, there's nothing outstanding about Bejeweled 2 Deluxe, which makes it just barely a good game. Since you can get virtually the same experience for free on the PC, the motivation to play on the Xbox 360 is to chart your scores and to gather achievement points, and since the latter is extremely difficult, you're better off playing other, more novel Xbox Live Arcade (not to mention full retail) games on your 360.
