    At times spiritual, transcendental and zen-like, at others excruciating, heart-poundingly tense and eye-wateringly immersive, Tetris Effect is game of the year material and essential on PlayStation VR.

    Tetris Effect and PS VR go together like ham and eggs. It’s the perfect pairing of tech and game design. Don’t have a headset? You can still join in but you’re missing out on the definitive way to play. [Issue#157, p.92]

    A masterful reimagining of Tetris that changes little about the core gameplay but still manages to create one of the most immersive video games ever.

    Tetris Effect is the most optimistic game of the year. Plus, nobody saw it coming. It shouldn't be possible to say this, but this is the best Tetris has been in decades.

    With Tetris Effect Mizuguchi has set another monument and designed probably the best Tetris experience ever. I have not had so much fun with Tetris since the first Game Boy.

    Tetris Effect is a well-designed new generation Tetris game with gorgeous visuals. It would be even greater if it were to include any multiplayer features.

    All the flair that’s been added to the base game lays bare what’s been deliberately and inexplicably left out, like online multiplayer.

    No review can sum up the magic of this game. Even if you arent a puzzle game fan, try it. You wont regret it.

WithTetris Effect is easily one of the greatest versions of Tetris ever released. It's also one of the best VR games ever released. With incredible visuals and music, it's an experience you shouldn't miss whether or not you own a PSVR. Though if you don't, you should consider it for this alone. The only real con is that it's short, but with a bunch of modes and difficulty levels it shoulf last you a fair while...especially if you're a completionist. Expand

The combination of music to go along with how well you're doing in the board is great. Some of the animations though can block what you're doing on screen sometimes, and I've lost a couple of times because it was moving so fast and I couldn't see where I was dropping a piece due to that. However this is a game that is very soothing and works well to help wind a person down from a long day. I'd recommend it to anyone who enjoys Tetris even a little bit. Expand

    It's a shiny Tetris game. 4K and HDR, or VR do not make Tetris "more fun". The dynamic soundtrack and visuals don't add much either. I thinkIt's a shiny Tetris game. 4K and HDR, or VR do not make Tetris "more fun". The dynamic soundtrack and visuals don't add much either. I think they missed a huge opportunity to re-release Teterisphere, especially in VR. A much overlooked entry in the vast # of Tetris games, this game would have looked great with new visuals/music/gameplay. They could've added a Tetris game with the package. However, for the price tag, Tetris Effect is a no go. Expand
