What is a good puzzle game for the ps2?

I finally picked up a PS2 and my wife only plays puzzle games for the most part. Seeing as how I want my purchase to look like it was a needed thing, I would like to get a game that will make her happy.

She likes Tetris type games, and the old style Intelligent Qube (which I cannot find at a decent price) for example. Anyone know of games that she may enjoy so that I can stay out of the doghouse?

It's not a PS2 game, but get Mr Driller for the PS1.. it'll be the best $10 you've ever spent. I promise.

(Devil Dice was awesome too but hard to find!)

Puzzle Fighter on PS1 hands-down! Time just melts away when playing this game with friends. Might be nearly impossible to find though....

Well, both of the games I was going to suggest have already been mentioned, and they're both PS1 games. Intelligent Qube and Super Puzzle Fighter 2 Turbo. Both hard to find, both very expensive.

Bust-A-Move 2 is a decent puzzler. It's priced right at $20.

I loved Devil Dice, very addictive for the PS1. Don't know what availability is now.

I clicked here to recommend Super Puzzle Fighter 2 but I found it's already been done. It's the only game I've ever played best out of 100.

OMG! Did pixiboi just endorse something Sony-related without crapping all over it?!

Everybody, time to make good on those bets...Hell hath indeed frozen over.

after reading this thread, I checked out ebay for auctions on puzzle fighter. wow. I had no idea puzzle figher was going for as much as $67! I bought my puzzle fighter a long time ago for $30 brand new. it's a fun game, but I haven't played it in years. maybe I should sell it

Well to be honest.. Mr Driller was an arcade game, and there are superior versions of the game on both Game Boy Advance and Game Cube.. I was simply helping a brtoha out..

Might I just reinforce the IQ (Intelligent Qube) recommendation. This is by far the best PS puzzler, I still play it regularly. I find some people thinking SPF2:T too difficult to really get into on a casual basis (which seems the main appeal of puzzlers in the first place - easy to pick up, impossible to put down).

As an aside, wasn't there a PS2 update/sequal to Intelligent Qube that was released in Japan but did not come stateside? Anyone know?

Yes, there was a Intelligent Qube sequel that only came out in Japan.

Another puzzle game: Ballistic.

I agree that's an excellent game, but still - Ico is much better.

That's what I came in here to do as well. Chalk up another vote for Super Puzzle Fighter 2.

Wow, I never thought I'd see the day when I drrop into a thread and see my favorite game of all time(Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo) get so many well deserved props! I have been playing it for about a year on and off I can tell you it is without a doubt the most addictive puzzle game ever made! Tetris, Magical Drop, Bomberman, Columns, none of them hold a candle to this game! Playing by yourself is one thing...but battling with another foe online takes it to a whole nother level!! It's extremely fun! This game is just BEGGING to be brought to xbox live! I swear if it comes out it will remain parked in my xbox FOREVER!

I liked Super Puzzle Fighter but I actually liked Devil Dice more. Is there anyone else out there that liked this game?
