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

    Well the controls suffer from being ported to the PC.
    If you try to use mouse ... it feels like your moving underwater its so sluggish and you cant turn up the mouse speed in settings.
    Keyboard have a ... unintuitive set of controls not what you would guess nor is it ergonomic And then did not manage to try it out with with a controller since it did not support the one i owned, big

    And then did not manage to try it out with with a controller since it did not support the one i owned, big brand but its very old by now.

    The demand on speed in controls is huge try running a race car with your feet instead of your hands and see how that FEELS.
    Sure give someone 20 years and maybe they can learn to use feet if they start young enough ...

    The sound is very VERY good, recommend it on easy as a audio experience worth doing.
    Its almost a amazing game but they didnt try hard enough when porting it might be great on PS 4

    While I was watching the end credits, someone in the other room started playing the Talking Heads, and I sighed. There is a lot of mediocre music in this game, and a lot of crappy contemporary pop. The levels that are instrumental and minimal, such as the wonderfully sputtering "kaleidoscope," can be transcendent. But they're a clear minority, which makes the game ultimately a disappointment.

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

    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.

    Tetris Effect reflects the classic puzzle game through a particle filled kaleidoscope, putting players into a mesmerizing trance with its unique presentation, alongside classic gameplay. Its price point might jolt you back to reality, though.
