    Pretty fun game. From the creator of Tetris. However, I enjoyed Tetris much more than this game. Hexic is more of just a little side thing more than a full fledged game. If you like puzzle games, then you will definitely like this, but at times it can just become more of a brain-sore than fun.

    Free with a hard disk, fun and colourful but nothing exciting. You feel as if you could have spent all your time playing something more fun. But a pretty good puzzle game. Nothing you should really bother about though.

    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.

    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.

    Only when you enter the timed mode do you feel that white-knuckled intensity reminiscent when your Tetris screen was filled with blocks.
  2. A fantastic game that becomes a lot deeper than it first seems once you start learning some of the advanced techniques. A perfect fit for the Xbox Live Arcade.
  3. Reminiscent of the influential puzzle gaming sensation Bejeweled, Hexic HD is a solid, attractive puzzle game that comes freely preloaded onto the Xbox 360's hard drive.
