Tetris effect: Connected reaches its true potential in the extensive multiplayer modes. You can join games hosted all over the world, each with its own theme and according graphical and sound effects. Whether you want to unwind with a relaxing puzzle, or are looking for an intense and nerve-racking challenge, the choices are nearly infinite.
Tetris Effect Connected is one big psychedelic trip that Xbox owners were previously missing out on. There is such a variety in themes, music, and game modes that it is unbelievable that developers still find a way to innovate, iterate and make, ostensibly, a puzzle game from the 1980s feel new and desirable to play. There is enough depth here in the multiplayer modes to retain the attention of Tetris players beyond the relatively short Journey and Effects modes, albeit many will chase their own tail to better their rankings and high scores. At the time of writing Tetris Effect Connected is available on Game Pass Ultimate so there is no real excuse to not give this a chance.
Fantastic Game you know what to expect going in you will receive a triple A version of that with an added layer of flair and modernism enhancing the game while it retains its roots. I've played solo, coop, and story mode. Playing these modes on both pc and Xbox series x through the eligibility of game pass allowing me to use cross play to include my wife into coop mode. We both enjoyed the fun and the simplicity of it basically being local coop. With my controller Bluetoothed to my pc I proceeded to the living room couch and joined her as I mashed the A button to revive over and over helping the real star of the show beat the AI. She carried me through multiple rounds as I died n revived at ambiguous times and continued the game just long enough for her to return and obliterate the formidable AI. While the Computer coop partner was all but useless the AI who deemed her a worthy opponent truly fought with might inspiring fear into my heart. Luckily my wife has a very logical and intense brain that rivaled our foe in every form of the game. Out performing this AI to me was miraculous seeing as I'm so good at halo and metal gear solid and gaming in general. Here comes this novice phone game player who enjoys mostly rts games and she killed it with logics. For me this game is fun but difficult for her and the right type of player its an OCD conquest of epic proportions begging to be completed quickly by sheer will and intelligence. I recommend this game to all with a logical brain, the desire to complete, to be graded, and to do better and let it be shown via in game leaderboards. My wife truly outshines me in this game and in life.
At the end of the day, Tetris Effect: Connected on Xbox is just Tetris. It’s the game we’ve all played a million times over, it’s a game we all know like the back of our hand, and it’s a game in which we can rack up the highest of high scores with our eyes closed. And that, that feel of familiarity, is quite possibly the only thing that is holding Connected back from utter greatness. Yes this version looks great, it plays brilliantly, it sounds awesome, and it could well be the best Tetris experience yet, but at the end of the day it’s still Tetris... yet it is still as stupidly addictive as it ever was.
This new Xbox edition keeps everything that made the original one of the best puzzlers in years (except the VR part, which it turns out is pretty unnecessary) and adds a heaping helping of multiplayer to the mix.
Tetris Effect: Connected is the best version of one of the top releases of 2018. The multiplayer additions are all excellently designed, with Connected Mode being one of the best co-operative experiences out there.
Unplayable **** Its more like effects with some tiny tetris somewhere behind all the disco **** that cant be turned off. Might be good to get high, enjoy the lights but good **** luck actually playing it.
