    While it doesn't offer the zany game types or interesting visuals of Tetris DS, this is a better offering than Tetris Axis by far.

    Putting it simply, at the end of the day it’s Tetris — but that's just fine.

    For the 30th anniversary of the historical puzzle game, Ubisoft has chosen to produce a "hardcore" version of Tetris: at its core it is always the same, fantastic game, but some of the new modes and the highly competitive online play make for a version which is dedicated the most hardcore fans and "professional" players.

    With not-so-exciting new game modes and lack of online gamers, Tetris Ultimate isn't the best Tetris experience ever. But its rich offline multiplayer support keeps it afloat.

    It's very hard to recommend Tetris Ultimate when you can find better solutions on the eShop for a fraction of the price asked by Ubisoft last work. It's not a particularly brilliant rehash, either.

    Most likely developed during Ubisoft Montreal's coffe breaks, Tetris Ultimate is quite a bad game. With 4 pitiful game modes and a limited appeal, the games is a cheap ripoff of Tetris DS that came out in 2006. If you want to buy a Tetris game on a portable Nintendo system go for Tetris DS or Tetris 3DS.

    Don´t think "Tetris" could be boring? Well, just play "Tetris Ultimate" because they ultimatly sucked out all the visual and musical fun out,Don´t think "Tetris" could be boring? Well, just play "Tetris Ultimate" because they ultimatly sucked out all the visual and musical fun out, compared to the "Tetris DS" Version (which was awesome...Nintendo Characters, Backgrounds, Music etc.). It is dull, uninspired, new modes aren´t fun...It feels like a Cashgrab, not like a carefully crafted game...so stay away...feels more like "Microsoft-Excel Tetris".. Expand

Remember how in Super Tetris 3 there were a few unique game types such as Magicallis and Bombliss? Both of those modes were interesting takes on a Gameboy classic. Remember how Super Tetris 3 had it's own sound test mode where you could listen to dozens of unique catchy songs? Remember how Tetrisphere had a 3d new twist on an old classic? Remember how Tetris DS had tons of Nintendo flavoring ala music and backgrounds? Tetris Ultimate has none of that. And it's visuals and sound are lifeless. I don't know you can screw up Tetris, but Ubisoft somehow managed to find a way. Expand
