    If you're looking for a rewarding block-dropping experience however, save yourself the thirty-five bucks and pick up a portable version. Chances are it'll be cheaper, more fun, and less inclined to promote suicidal megalomania.
  2. We were able to tear through the game's 15 levels of difficulty without breaking a sweat, thanks to this infinite spinning feature.
  3. At a tenner this would have been okay, but for a penny under £20 this just can’t be recommended.
  4. The Tetris we all know and love never got boring. This does. [June 2002, p.100]
  5. The story is cute but nothing really deep and basically just has you playing the various types of Tetris included to move the story along.
  6. Blue Planet has thankfully left the basic gameplay alone.
  7. It’s like Tetris, only with... No, wait. It’s just Tetris.

    I don't care what anyone says, Tetris always has been and always will be the greatest puzzle game ever created. With that in mind you have to wonder how anyone can make such as mess of it!

    For some reason the creators of Tetris Worlds have seen fit to include a 'story mode', that strangely tries to explain the origins of the falling blocks, and then added all manner of pointless variations on top of the original gameplay. To make matters worse even the original mode is ruined by the fact that the blocks move far to slowly and the controls are not responsive enough.

    It's Tetris. What else can I say? It's another lazy version of a NES game that adds nothing new, this is a perfectly fine game. But this game is nothing special, you only need one version of Tetris, and I would recommend the Gameboy version, Why? Because the music is AMAZING. Full Review »

    This was the best Tetris game I have ever played.
