    All in all, I found the new additions introduced in Tetris Effect: Connected to be well worth playing and experiencing. The new Connected mode was an experience with Tetris I’ve never had before and is a must-play for anyone interested in Tetris at all.

    Tetris Effect: Connected is the definitive Tetris experience to this day. It boasts a plethora of single player and multiplayer modes. There’s something for everyone when it comes to this game. From the music and visuals to the competitive potential in its multiplayer modes, this game has it all from the classic puzzler in a beautiful coat of paint. Its addition of crossplay will make it even more enjoyable among friends and tournament organizers, allowing for its already humble community to flourish even further.

    Whether you missed out on the original two years previous or are looking for a worthwhile part of the Xbox Series X/S launch line-up, Tetris Effect: Connected is an even more joyous and grander expansion on what remains one of the puzzle great’s most creative interpretations.

    Tetris Effect: Connected is a beautiful game and a great multiplayer-focused refresh of the initial PlayStation 4 game. The visuals are gorgeous and deserve to be experienced in VR. Depending on the display, HDR or SDR colour ranges might not look right until some tweaking is done outside of the game. However, once it clicks this is one of the best puzzle games and definitely a fantastic way to play Tetris in its modern format solo or with others.

    Tetris Effect: Connected is excellent. For many, this is an audio/video experience that is a piece of art and easy to digest because the game is so easy to pick up and play. The various single-player experiences provide something to players who are looking for more than just high scores, and while the multiplayer isn't as frantic as Tetris 99, it is still something that one can return to countless times. Even if you aren't lucky enough to view this in VR, Tetris Effect is still well worth experiencing.

Tetris Effect: Connected contains the original (and fantastic) single-player campaign as well as multiple relaxing yet exciting multiplayer modes. This game is much more of an experience then most Tetris games, and the music and sounds are reactive; Get a Tetris, advance the song and visuals. As you play, the music, sounds, and background evolve, slowly becoming something complete and beautiful. Even $40 is a bit steep, I wholeheartedly believe that every penny is worth it, and I would highly recommend this game. (Besides that, it's on Game Pass, so what excuse do you have to NOT be playing this?) Expand

    Tetris Effect Connected take the classic game and elevate your experience to an incredible audio-visual journey. It really reminds me ofTetris Effect Connected take the classic game and elevate your experience to an incredible audio-visual journey. It really reminds me of “Lumines”, but with Tetris instead. Not surprised, Tetris Effect was developed by the same producers of Lumines. The gameplay feels like you are a DJ mastering the music by playing Tetris, it’s a very satisfying feeling manipulating and putting together blocks with the rhythm of the music and an insane visual background reacting to it. The game challenges you, sometimes make you restart and try over and over again. But also have moments of calm that you can relax and just enjoy the game. It’s kind therapeutic. But be aware, you will be seeing these block falling off every time you close your eyes by the rest of your day. I loved “Lumines”, and Tetris effect bring me back that same good vibe but now with Tetris. Expand
