    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.

Trust me, this is the best game I have bought in 2018, it is so addictive, so enjoyable. Always asking questions of your talent, and begging you to have one more go. Insta buy status. I haven't even tried it in VR yet. Expand

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

    This is a must-buy for everyone that likes Tetris.

    Yes it is just Tetris, but played on a board the size of a house, and with fantastic audio and beautiful visuals.
    I have enjoyed every second I have been playing this game, and I honestly can't say that about many AAA games, as they have their dull moments. This is not the case with Tetris Effect. It is wonderful from the moment you start.

    Nice visual effects and nice music, but it is still just Tetris, so the 39,90€ price tag is completely and utterly unjustified.

    If you find this in a -75% discount or more, it is a buy, but with the current price tag it is just a huge disappointment.
