    Puyo Puyo Tetris is totally worth the $30 or $40 bucks for those who absolutely love either of the block dropping puzzle franchises and are looking for a fun and fresh twist on the genre.

    For as much content that’s on offer here, there’s bound to be something for everybody. If you just want to stick to Tetris, you can do that! If you’re a Puyo Purist, that’s fine too! Both are excellent in their own right and the wealth of play options only helps to sweeten the deal. Puyo Puyo Tetris is packed to the brim with game modes and alternate play styles that’s perfect for parties or solo challenge runs.

    It's hard to imagine the PS4 getting a better puzzle game than Puyo Puyo Tetris. SEGA's brilliant blend of brick building and blob busting makes for a frantically fun multiplayer experience, but it's got depth beyond its surface simplicity to keep you occupied for a long, long time.

If you even have the slightest urge to puzzle it out Puyo Puyo or Tetris style, give Puyo Puyo Tetris a shot, you won’t be disappointed.

    Puyo Puyo Tetris mixes two classic puzzle formulas into one seamless experience that'll keep you hooked. Although it's far from the complete package, what's here will surely keep any puzzler fan entertained for hours.

    Puyo Puyo Tetris has a bunch of different modes, but you cannot play the classic Tetris game. You can enjoy this game with 4 players, online and offline. Puyo Puyo Tetris is a game you can pick up very easily.

    It's no Towerfall; you'll still spend some time wondering how or why something happened, but at least you'll all be in the same blocky boat. [July 2016, p.96]

    I never really cared about Tetris, but this combination is insanely addictive if you play in a group. Highly recommended.

    Puyo Puyo Tetris
    Fun for a little while
    Puyo Puyo Tetris is a game where puyo puyo and Tetris cross paths... There are tons of modes here
    Puyo Puyo Tetris
    Fun for a little while
    Puyo Puyo Tetris is a game where puyo puyo and Tetris cross paths...
    There are tons of modes here bringing the 2 games together as well as keeping them separate…
    I was surprised to learn that there is actually a campaign here…
    The campaign consists of 10 acts with 10 battles each and tells the story of how this whole Tetris and puyo puyo cross over happened…
    Everyone has played Tetris before but if you haven’t it’s arguable the best puzzle game ever made..
    Where shapes fall from the sky and you try to clear lines by stacking them...
    And puyo puyo is a much lesser puzzle game where you have to try and get at least 4 puyo puyo of the same color to touch...
    And outside of the campaign there is a solo arcade mode where you can play against up to 3 computer players in a regular verses mode for either of the 2, fusion where you have to deal with Tetris blocks and puyo puyo at the same time, swap where the game randomly switches between the 2 game modes as you try to knock your opponent out, party mode where you’re dealing with special items. .this mode is complete mayhem and just a little too much for me, a big bang mode where you choose the game type you want to play and try to clear patterns the fastest, and finally a challenge mode where you chase high scores…
    There’s also muti player arcade to play local games and an competitive online mode where you can set up a lobby or play ranked matches and see how bad at Tetris you actually are…
    I’m a bit of a Tetris fan.. puyo puyo not so much…
    thankfully the game feels pretty great for both game modes but there are some definite issues trying to playing using the analog stick.. It’s way too easy to accidentally drop a block while playing... so I recommend playing this game with a dpad and nothing else…
    At the end of the day I don’t find Puyo Puyo Tetris to be anything special...
    its Tetris with gimmicks multiplayer and a bad wanna be attached…
    Its more for Tetris fans than anyone else..
    I don’t see this game making any new fans for either of the 2 game modes…
    I give Puyo Puyo Tetris
    a 7/10

I enjoy playing Tetris every once in awhile for 10-20 minutes but it’s not a game that holds my interest for very long. So this game is Tetris and some other puzzle game called Puyo Puyo.

    I guess its popular but my brain couldn’t quite grasp what I’m supposed to be doing. I have no idea what Puyo Puyo is. So what the game is, both Tetris and Puyo Puyo mixed together. I really struggled with it because I don’t get Puyo Puyo. I’m decent at Tetris but I’m not an expert or anything like that. I keep it simple and try to remove one line at a time.

    This seems like a very well made Puzzle game but its just not for me. I can’t justify spending $40 on this game when I can download Tetris on my phone for free and play like once every couple months for short sessions.

    The story is childish to the extreme, the non-campaign modes are a waste of time, the lack of a Marathon mode limits replayability, and theThe story is childish to the extreme, the non-campaign modes are a waste of time, the lack of a Marathon mode limits replayability, and the constant inescapable voice acting turns the game from a decent puzzler to an exercise in patience.
