    If you’re a Nintendo Switch Owner there’s no real reason for you to not download this title. It’s already a Game of the Year Contender.

    The complete oddball of the family, Tetris 99 offers a truly unique way to play the tried-and-tested classic, even if the overall package feels a little lightweight. Playing live against 98 others is chaotic, and the action feels fast, precise, and wonderfully addictive. It’s seriously difficult, too – we’d fancy our chances in Fortnite over this any day – and we’re impressed with the fact that it's forced us to play the game with a completely different approach to our usual slow-and-steady ways. Signing up for Nintendo Switch Online just to play this game might be a bit of a stretch, but if you’re already a member, what are you waiting for? It’s free, and it might just become your next favourite time sink.

    If you’re after a royale-y good time you should look much farther than Tetris 99.

    Tetris 99 is a pleasant surprise, and is my favorite content offered by the Nintendo Switch Online service to date. The idea of playing Tetris against 98 other players at once seems ludicrous but is fun in practice and delivers intense moments just like when you’re among the final few in a battle royale game.

    Tetris 99 is a convincing mix of the classic Tetris formula and battle royale mechanics.

    Tetris 99 may not be a proper battle royale game, but it taps into the same emotional well, where a large number of players vying for supremacy creates an ever-present intensity that's difficult to shake. Add that layer to a game that's plenty capable of instilling tension on its own, and you've got a riveting experience that even at its worst is still a game very much worth playing. There's obvious room for improvement, but that's the last thing on your mind when the pieces start falling and the players start dropping.

    For a quick game this “Blockbattle Royale” is good choice, but after that it becomes too tedious too soon.

    Tetris 99 is a game that is like potato chips -> It's impossible to play only one time.

    It's fun to play, but I don't play it nearly as often as most of my other games.

    La jugabilidad es la misma de siempre, acomoda los bloques a modo de formar líneas y evitar que se acumulen hasta la parte superior de la pantalla. Se le añade una selección de estrategia para poder competir y vencer rivales sólo con el toque del stick derecho.
    Simple, fácil de aprender y competitivo si quieres quedar en el top principal. "Tetris 99" es una genialidad que se disfruta y se juega de maravilla. Un recomendado total.

    Not Ready For Sale:

    This game is highly competitive and lacks any instructions/tutorial about it's complex mechanics, this is juvenile game design.
