    It had been a long time since I last thought about a good game of Tetris, and I had never even seen a Puyo Puyo before, but having these two games come together in such a way has been a true delight. This is also a perfect game to have on the switch. Great on the go when you just need to pass the time, but equally as good on the big screen with some mates to challenge.

    The wait was worth it for this puzzle mashup, as Puyo Puyo Tetris embodies everything great about its namesakes, and compliments the host hardware perfectly. Concerns arise about the lack of Japanese voice work as an option, but as an overall package of content and pure replayability there are few better crossovers than this one.

    The beautifully presented Puyo Puyo Tetris has a ton of content, a really fun multiplayer with a lot of variations, and is very easy to pick up and play with just about anyone despite the slight balance issues. The Nintendo Switch is a great platform for it too, with its portability and non-threatening Joy-Con controllers. This is the type of game that offers an adequate challenge for even the most hardcore puzzle players with its Challenge modes, but is inviting for even the smallest of children and gaming newbies.

    Puyo Puyo Tetris is a fantastic puzzle game, a crossover between two of the best franchises of the genre, Tetris and Puyo Puyo. The Nintendo Switch version is the way to go, offering great versatility and allowing you to play on the go or in docked mode. Multiplayer is supported up to 4 players both local with one or more consoles linked via wireless or on the TV screen, and online. Single player mode is too weak though, but if you have some friends and two couple of Joy-Cons, you will have loads of fun.

    Two puzzle game juggernauts collide in a solid, fun and complete experience. Good as a single player game, great with its multiplayer options.

    Overflowing with colorful personality, Puyo Puyo Tetris revels in its weirdness. It provides solid versions of both puzzle games and merges the two in bizarre, frantic ways that adds a fresh dash of style to these long-running series. With an array of game variations spanning single-player, along with on- and offline multiplayer, it's an incredibly meaty package that should satisfy gamers for a long time to come.

    The biggest single-player draw card is Adventure, the game’s story mode, and one we’ve specifically been told not to spoil.

Both Puyo and Tetris are very fun, and mixing them together is a pretty good idea. Now there are some issues with difficulty balance and stuff, and the fact that someone who's not a big fan of those franchises probably wouldn't like the $29.99 price tag, but overall, it's a fun experience.

    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

    You can't play faster than level 15, what an absolute joke of a tetris game.
