  • Summary: Named after a real-world phenomenon where players' brains are so engrossed that images of the iconic falling Tetrimino blocks (i.e. the Tetris playing pieces) linger in their vision, thoughts, and even dreams, Tetris Effect amplifies this magical feeling of total immersion by surrounding youNamed after a real-world phenomenon where players' brains are so engrossed that images of the iconic falling Tetrimino blocks (i.e. the Tetris playing pieces) linger in their vision, thoughts, and even dreams, Tetris Effect amplifies this magical feeling of total immersion by surrounding you with fantastic, fully three-dimensional worlds that react and evolve based on how you play. Music, backgrounds, sounds, special effects -- everything, down to the Tetris pieces themselves, pulse, dance, shimmer, and explode in perfect sync with how you're playing.

    From deep beneath the ocean to the furthest reaches of outer space and everywhere between, Tetris Effect's 30-plus stages take players on a wondrous, emotional journey through the universe. The core of the game is still Tetris -- one of the most popular puzzle games of all time -- but like you've never seen it, or heard it, or felt it before.

    A euphoric, almost religious game, and one that will make you wonder what you've been doing playing other games.

    Tetris Effect has lost none of the prime gameplay quality that the series is known for, it’s still as addictive and difficult to stop playing as ever. Quite frankly, Tetris Effect is the best version of Tetris. Just as important, the title suits experienced and new VR players alike. The former get hours of engrossing gameplay while the latter get to see why VR is worth getting into. Just remember to take the headset off once in a while.

    Tetris Effect is a magical experience that you really need to witness to believe. Featuring over thirty stages, unlockable content, and a wide range of challenges with their own leaderboards, it’s also the most complete Tetris experience to date. There’s endless replay value here for fans of the classic puzzle formula and virtual reality is the cherry on top.

    he name Tetris Effect was well chosen, because you really do feel the game altering your perception, as it and the Tetriminoes become your whole world. You play Tetris Effect but you also get the feeling that it is playing you, the blending of game and gamer reaching a peak in which they seem almost one and the same.

    Maybe Tetris Effect is just Tetris, but it masterfully does what so many other game remakes aim for—an experience suitable for seasoned players as well as beginners, which enhances what’s already good and offers new reasons to love a classic.

    If you own a good PC and are a Tetris fan, you won't be disappointed by Tetris Effect. It's still what can be considered as the strongest installment in the series, thanks to its lavish visuals and unforgettable sound design and tracks. But, it can potentially be a lot more beautiful and overwhelming than on PS4, with a 4K screen or with a VR headset. You just can't miss this magnificent gem.

    Tetris Effect is an absolute beauty, but the gameplay powering this audiovisual phenomenon is still the same old Tetris. Players won’t be starved for options, but those hoping for something game-changing like Tetris 99 or Tetris: The Grand Master will feel somewhat empty.

And boy was I not disappointed when it was finally released. It was even better than what we saw on the PS4. This is a simple game of Tetris with special effects, but once you use your headphones and play in a dark immersive environment, you would be able to truly appreciate how fantastic this game is. I know so many people hate the fact that it is an Epic exclusive, but for those of us in Nigeria, it only means that we are getting the game with regional pricing which is a huge discount. Thank you Epic for realising that some of the gamers live outside the US and Europe. Expand

    I always thought Tetris was one of the best if not the best videogame ever, mechanically is perfect.

    With this version it goes to my top 3 or even top 1, it could be one of the best experiences I have enjoyed in my gamer life. I have been always been grateful to Tetsuya Mizuguchi for REZ, but Tetris Effect is even better.

    It's just a typical tetris game with some flashy effects. I don't get what's so special about it.

I not only do not listen to that kind ofYou can imagine my surprise when the music kicks in and its some kind of crappy hip hop rap garbage. I not only do not listen to that kind of music, I do not tolerate it. I expect there to be some notification that the soundtrack is hip hop/rap oriented before I buy something. Its like just because today's "top 20" is full of unknown rap and hip hop garbage that they took the liberty of assuming that this is considered 'popular' music and didnt see a need to let people know that that is what the soundtrack consisted of. You can bet your *** that if the sound track was some kind of hard rock they would have let people know in advance. Much of it is crude and insulting, but thankfully some of the levels have world and new age instrumental music. On another positive note there are something to the effect of 40 levels so you still get a few that are good and playable even if you are not into rap/hip hop etc. Still it is very disturbing that they can sell something like this without letting a potential buyer know what they are getting into. Its like being tricked into going to some type of Jesus festival. Its like today's music has become such a fat, slovenly disgusting 1200 pound "Beyonce" that they are acting like other kinds of music don't even exist. Jazz, instrumental, "world", New Age... perfectly acceptable. There is clearly an effort to have music and sounds from cultures all over the world and that is great. What is not acceptable is that the "American" portion of the music solely consists of rap and hip hop garbage. If that is the case, a buyer should be made aware of it. Let me know what I am getting into. Don't just try to slip it in under the guise that "Oh is there some other type of American Music?". Very, very disturbing. Expand
