  1. This is not just another falling brick game; Hexic is a keen evolution of the genre that gives the player a lot more credit than most puzzle games do.
  2. This hexagon-packed puzzler is a bonus for all Xbox 360 owners who pick up a hard drive for their system, as it comes pre-installed on the hard drive.
  3. Hexic almost single-handedly kept out 360's from collecting cobwebs during the post-launch lull, and we still found ourselves firing it up when we don't have a time for a marathon "Oblivion" session or some "Fight Night" brawling. [Jun 2006, p.62]

    It's a refreshing surprise that I think came out of no where this past holiday season.

    Addictive, simple and free. One of those games you have on the side for playing for five minutes or so when there's nothing else to do. Don't expect big things, but a sweet arcade game Full Review »

    Its a good thing this game is free, cause it really isn't worth paying for. Its a decent puzzle game in short bursts, but the games can last for quite a while and get boring fairly quickly. And it doesn't help that the games music is completely forgettable. Overall its worth trying, but don't expect it to keep you coming back for very long. Full Review »

    Hexic is a brilliant game! A great game created by that insane Russian guy that made Tetris, Hexic is an amazing follow up, that has great modes, and tight graphics. Finally getting a black pearl is major braging rigths among your friends. Full Review »
