    It's a very social game. This isn't a game where you'll be talking crap back and forth, nor is it a game where you'll be taking commands from a squad leader. It's a social event/game which is a lot of fun.

    As an online game, Tetris Worlds works really well, and I never encountered a bit of lag. [Sept 2003, p.58]
  3. The Xbox Live support is just the icing on a particularly tasty cake. So if you’re a Tetris fan, this is the version I recommend you check out – just remember my warnings when your dreams take a weird turn.
  4. No matter how many coats of polish they put on it, this is still the same game that's been around since Mikhail Gorbachev ruled the Soviet Union. [Oct/Nov 2003, p.87]
  5. The new ways to play it are creative, but most of them aren’t different enough to make you feel like you’re playing a variety of modes.
  6. The online mode is fun and can make the game last, but the offline modes are so bland and boring.
  7. Little more than an online update of a pretty dire Tetris update, Worlds simply isn't worth your cash, even if it's only 15 or 20 quid down the high street.

    Fun simple relaxing game to play with the ultimate ability to listen to your own music tracks while you kick back alone or with a friend.
