  1. Put next to the (unfairly derided) Lumines Live, Tetris Evolution is clunky, overpriced and devoid of compelling new features, and with the Xbox 360 controller's directional pad putting in its usual awkward performance, it's hard to think of a reason to recommend this to anybody.
  2. This hasn't moved on from the last generation of Tetris at all. [July 2007, p.102]
  3. 35
    Customizable background themes, icons, and skins are offered to spice up the aesthetic, but they're not the least bit pleasant to look at and offer about as much artistry as clip art.
  4. 30
    With the limited variation in modes and the lackluster multiplayer, I simply couldn't justify spending an entire $30 on Tetris Evolution. Especially not when I can get a superior version for my Nintendo DS.
  5. In short, everything that Evolution changes from the original Tetris is a bad idea that makes the game worse. That this game sells for $30 is a joke, there are much better games for cheaper on Xbox Live Arcade.
  6. For Pete’s sake, the music even sounds tired –in the same way that you may imagine a weary 70 year-old musician at the end of the last show in the nth tour he’s had in the quarter might feel.

    Tetris Evolution is a must have for every Tetris fan! There are so many little different achievements that you strive to unlock. Since the primary function of the game hasn't changed in years, THQ was able to make pretty cool lookin' backgrounds, but they can get very distracting in game. I tend to choose less fancy backgrounds to concentrate on the pieces! It was definitely worth every penny of the $30 I paid for! Full Review »
