Peggle was one of those game that the only reason I ever started it in the first place was because it came with another game that I bought which was Plants Vs. Zombies for the PS3, you can read my review of that game here. This game came in a nice little package of three games and out of the three, I finished Plants Vs. Zombies to 100%, never finished Peggle, and never even started Heavy Weapon. Since I started Peggle, but never finished it, it’s time to find out why.
In Peggle, each different level and area brings you a new challenge, clear the little orange balls from the board of blue balls. Yes I know that sounds weird, but it is what it is. Anyway, each area will have its own Peggle master to lead you on your way and help you get clear the orange balls. You’ll also have different challenges to complete, an adventure mode, and even an online multiplayer mode. It seems like you can never run out of things to do in this game and really you can’t as this is one of those games that you can just keep playing and playing.
I really do enjoy Peggle. I even have the platinum trophy for Peggle 2 on the PS4, you can read my review of that game here. This being the first Peggle game was very different from the PS4 game, not in a bad way, just in a this is the first game in the series way. While some might think it’s simple to just hit a bunch of orange balls and move onto the next level, it’s not as simple as you think. This game actually requires some thought put into it as well as some luck. It’s a 50/50 type thing and the reason why I never actually finished it was because I just grew a little frustrated with it after playing a level over and over again and not being able to beat it. Stuff like that happens to everyone and after trying to beat a level for a couple of days, I just gave up and never went back to this game.
As you can see from the picture above, I was able to get a total of 9 trophies for this game. 8 of them out of the base 12 trophies and 1 of them out of the 3 DLC trophies. Yes, this game had DLC. Can you believe it? Well it’s not that farfetched since Peggle 2 had DLC too. Anyway, I’m missing some big trophies for this game that include completing the challenge mode, scoring 20 million in adventure mode, beating 3 other people in a Peggle party by 100,000 points, and the list goes on. These aren’t easy trophies. They range from Rare to Ultra-Rare so I’m not that upset about not having them. Now if they were Common trophies, I might be a little pissed, but they’re not so I’m totally fine with not having them.
Probability of this game getting played again…3 out of 5.
I’m not going to say that I’m never going to play Peggle again. I really do enjoy this game and the little craziness that is Peggle. I’m just going to keep this game on the backburner of games that I would play again if I had all the time in the world. Although, I feel like if I had all the time in the world it would be like that episode of the Twilight Zone, where all that guy wants to do is read and when he gets all the time in the world to read his glasses break. That would be me. All the time in the world to game and my glasses would break. Anyway, if and when I get the time I wouldn’t rule out playing Peggle again.
Now it’s your turn. Love this game? Hate it? Get it on disc with Plants Vs. Zombies or did you download the game? Let me know down in the comments section. Now for next week, a game that I thought would be easy yet it’s been sitting on my trophy list untouched for 5 years. I bought this for my PS Vita, but because it’s a cross buy I can also play on my PS3. While I haven’t played it on the PS3 only on the PS Vita, next week I’ll let you know why I never finished Dragon Fantasy Book 1.
