    Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 is a generous, complete game with timeless and relentless game mechanics. Because of this, it is undoubtedly a must-have for anyone who enjoys competitive puzzle play.

    You definitely need to be a puzzle game fan to enjoy Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 and if these styles of games do not interest you then this one will probably not turn you. Since both franchises are played differently it’s difficult to merge the two into one experience, but how they did it here works great and it’s easy to jump into and play. There is enough offered in Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 that even if you are a fan of just one type of puzzler you will probably still find something to like. If you are a puzzle fan and missed the first one then this is a perfect pick up… and if you have experienced the original there’s enough new content to be found in the sequel to keep you entertained.

    Very much in the Puyo Puyo mould, it’s goofy fun about the dimensions crossing over. PPT2 isn’t a gamechanger, but is still one of the best puzzlers around. [Issue#184, p.86]

    Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 is worth the price of admission. Whether you’re in the mood for some battles against the CPU, running an endless match in solo play, or willing to go to bed grumbling about your significant other somehow getting all the speed buffs and ruining your perfect Tetris, it’s a great game to pick up and play.

    Ultimately what you’re getting with Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 is more of the same things you enjoyed last time. They’re very good things! But many players may find that the first game already offered all the high points of this sequel, and that the new modes don’t offer very much to rekindle their interest.

    Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 is a worthy successor to the first game, expanding upon the original premise with additions like skills battles but retaining that same addictive gameplay puzzle fans will love. Providing a fantastic multiplayer experience both online and locally, fans will find plenty to keep them occupied. It isn’t entirely flawless and the lack of changes with bonus content feels a little too safe but it’s a minor criticism in the grand scheme of things. SEGA has done an excellent job here and it comes highly recommended.

    In short, the purchase of this chapter is mainly recommended both for anyone who has never played the first Puyo Puyo Tetris, and for all those who see attractive and stimulating content in the presence of the online PvE rankings, in the new Adventure and in the Technical Battles.

    Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 is a fun game that offers up more gameplay options than narrative depth. The competitive mode is the highlight of the release and gives you plenty of reasons to keep playing this sequel.

    Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 is essentially a carbon copy of the first game except it has a new mode and a different story-based adventure. Because of that, I can't help but feel like it could have been DLC instead of a brand new separate game.

    As a follow-up, Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 does manage to add the occasional extra twist, some tweaked timing, and a whole new round of puns but this enjoyable puzzle game doesn't add enough to the core gameplay to justify a sequel, however charming it is.

    Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 could be great but ups the ante with an overly aggressive AI implementation that makes the campaign mode a joyless experience in the second half. Coupled with zero use of the Dualsense functions, you’d just as well be playing the original against pro-level players online. It's still a great game but the absurd AI kills it for all but the most hardcore players.

    There's more than enough in the game's Adventure mode to recommend Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 to the dedicated and the curious. While this falls firmly on the side of evolution, Skill Battles are a strong new addition to the game's lineup of modes, while the rat-a-tat joke delivery of the story adds a flavour that you just don't get in other puzzle games. This inexplicable cocktail remains potent for any puzzle lover.

    Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 is a fun puzzling game if you like both Puyo Puyo and Tetris and you get something more. Unfortunately it is not a very impressive game and feels cheap at times, the biggest problem is the lack of cross play on top of a small community.

    I can’t seem to play any online multiplayer... and I mean nothing. Matchmaking doesn’t find any opponents ever. This is hopeless

Just paid £35 for #2 and it’s literally exactly the same game. It’s impossible to get into an online game, my world rank is 7 and I have literally got into 1 game. Surely more than 50 people have bought this game. Giving it a 6 because although it’s the same game as before, it’s still fun as hell, well just as fun as the first one... Full Review »
