  • Summary: [PSP Minis] Tetris on the PSP.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 6 out of 7
  2. Negative: 0 out of 7
  1. An essential purchase for anyone with two thumbs. [Dec 2009, p.18]

    A great range of genuinely entertaining play modes. [Issue#186, p.87]
  3. The only notable absence here is a multiplayer mode, but then Tetris always worked better as a lonely, consuming experience. At £3.99 this is one of the more expensive releases in the Minis range, but considering what you actually get, this still represents excellent value for money.
  4. This is a restrained and worthy modern update that keeps the essentials clutter-free.
  5. It genuinely doesn't age. [Christmas 2009, p.94]

    Tetris is and always has been fun, but when we've played it this many times and have so many avenues to get it for free, you have to scratch your head at the decision to sell this one for $10. I like this PSP version of Tetris, but it's not really reinventing the franchise or anything.
  7. Extremely addictive it may be, but it doesn’t move the game on in terms of originality or push the limits of what can be achieved with PSP Minis, instead, Tetris just plays safe.

    It's Tetris, okay? Why do I have to write at least 150 characters about it? It's Tetris, so immediately it gets a 10. The price is fine, also. And it's on the PSP (Go). Collapse

    Worth a download for £4 / $10, Its a good version, maybe not quite as good as the DS version but still fun none the less, my only gripe is that the audio will drive you round the bend. Expand

    Look, Tetris is not a bad game, but is it one of the best games there is?
    Sadly, no.

    I bet that going back to this day when Tetris was
    made, or now currently, I'm sure that people would either go play another game, or go do something else, like maybe talk to friends, go outside, ext... Expand
