    It had been a long time since I last thought about a good game of Tetris, and I had never even seen a Puyo Puyo before, but having these two games come together in such a way has been a true delight. This is also a perfect game to have on the switch. Great on the go when you just need to pass the time, but equally as good on the big screen with some mates to challenge.

    The wait was worth it for this puzzle mashup, as Puyo Puyo Tetris embodies everything great about its namesakes, and compliments the host hardware perfectly. Concerns arise about the lack of Japanese voice work as an option, but as an overall package of content and pure replayability there are few better crossovers than this one.

    The beautifully presented Puyo Puyo Tetris has a ton of content, a really fun multiplayer with a lot of variations, and is very easy to pick up and play with just about anyone despite the slight balance issues. The Nintendo Switch is a great platform for it too, with its portability and non-threatening Joy-Con controllers. This is the type of game that offers an adequate challenge for even the most hardcore puzzle players with its Challenge modes, but is inviting for even the smallest of children and gaming newbies.

    Puyo Puyo Tetris is a fantastic puzzle game, a crossover between two of the best franchises of the genre, Tetris and Puyo Puyo. The Nintendo Switch version is the way to go, offering great versatility and allowing you to play on the go or in docked mode. Multiplayer is supported up to 4 players both local with one or more consoles linked via wireless or on the TV screen, and online. Single player mode is too weak though, but if you have some friends and two couple of Joy-Cons, you will have loads of fun.

    Two puzzle game juggernauts collide in a solid, fun and complete experience. Good as a single player game, great with its multiplayer options.

    Overflowing with colorful personality, Puyo Puyo Tetris revels in its weirdness. It provides solid versions of both puzzle games and merges the two in bizarre, frantic ways that adds a fresh dash of style to these long-running series. With an array of game variations spanning single-player, along with on- and offline multiplayer, it's an incredibly meaty package that should satisfy gamers for a long time to come.

    The biggest single-player draw card is Adventure, the game’s story mode, and one we’ve specifically been told not to spoil.

    This game is a great entry into the puzzle genre for the Nintendo Switch. It executes the idea of joining the most iconic puzzle franchisesThis game is a great entry into the puzzle genre for the Nintendo Switch. It executes the idea of joining the most iconic puzzle franchises really well. The game includes a single player campaign, which focuses more on the challenge side rather than the story. The arcade is really where Puyo Puyo Tetris shines. It has 5 unique modes that can be played with up to 4 people. It also 6 single player modes to challenge even the most seasoned puzzle veterans. The presentation of the game is top-notch and the music is good. One downside is that the character voices are a bit annoying but can be easily turned off. Puyo Puyo Tetris is a great game for on the go fun and challenging friends. Expand
