Tetris Worlds continues that streak, bringing their distinct brand of simple, yet addictive gameplay to the current generation of systems. Small shapes called Tetraminoes fall from the top of the screen to the bottom and you must rotate them and fit them together to complete lines. The game features six different variations of the classic Tetris, multiplayer mode for up to four players, and six different worlds. Sound easy? Once you start, you can't stop. Expand

  1. Its gameplay is solid while it still holds true to the original Tetris concept and is addictively fun.
  2. Promises a solid foundation of endless fun. [Sept 2002, p.164]
  3. A total disappointment, as it does not live up to its prestigious heritage that other Tetris games had.

    I don't think I've ever been this unimpressed by a Tetris game in my entire life.
  5. What is there that's new could be passed on, and the different options, excluding hold, create an all too easy Tetris. There are other Tetrises out there that do it better.
  6. Even the most hardcore Tetris fans will be upset with the sloppy multiplayer and arcade modes and the lack of meaningful new gameplay.
  7. Unfortunately, Tetris Worlds also introduces one particular change to the gameplay that renders the classic game all but unplayable.

    I do not know what people are expecting from this game. I found it the best game to play with my girlfriend. We spend hours trying to beat I do not know what people are expecting from this game. I found it the best game to play with my girlfriend. We spend hours trying to beat each other in normal Tetris and Fusion modes. Tetris plays the same as always. Expand

I wish there was a way to play the good old classic game at least cause the modes in Tetris Worlds aren't so exciting. I still played kind of a lot, to try to make it grow on me... and it worked a little, but then I got tired of it. A Tetris game without a scoring system isn't a good Tetris game! Expand

    Good 4 player game, but there is no mode just to play. Instead, you must race to complete 5, 10, 15 ect rows.

    How on earth did THQ manage to ruin Tetris? All they needed to do is include the basic game with many options and gameplay types, and people How on earth did THQ manage to ruin Tetris? All they needed to do is include the basic game with many options and gameplay types, and people will be happy. Instead they change a key aspect of the gameplay, and basically screw the entire game up. I feel almost generous in rating this a 1. Expand
