Despite on-going debate regarding the relative merits of casual and hardcore games, it seems obvious to me that there is a place for both in the video gaming world. If I feel particularly inspired to spend a few hours relaxing, chances are I’ll fire up the Xbox 360 and explore the more debauched environs of Liberty City on my motor scooter. If I’m waiting for the pasta to boil at dinner time, my preference will favour an XBLA title or one of PopCap Game’s casual offerings to help pass the 8-10 minutes required in lieu of staring at the proverbial “watched pot.” Although PopCap’s number one seller, Peggle Deluxe, has been around for over a year now, casual games tend to have an extended sales window compared to their hardcore equivalents … which is just my excuse for a belated review as the game completely slipped under my radar a couple of February’s ago. As I was “between games” the other day, I thought I’d take the opportunity to check it out. Note that if you live in Australia, you can save over 50% on the purchase price by buying the game off Steam rather than direct from PopCap Games; the same deal may also apply to other countries.
