"How can you go wrong, It's tetris!"
First of all, if you have never played Tetris then you must have been living under a rock for many years. For all you rock dwellers out there, Tetris is a puzzle game that requires you to fit different falling shapes together to form a horizontal line across the playing field. Whenever you clear a line, it dissapears. If any of your blocks reach the top, game over.
Gameplay- 10/10-BEST. PUZZLE GAME. EVER...seriously folks, this game is great. It feels just right on the X Box controller(and not many games do for me). Difficulty is adjustable, so if your find the game too hard or easy you can change the settings. They included many different modes to play(cascade, hot line, etc.) in case you get bored with classic Tetris mode. Tetris Worlds is extremely FUN! I have played it for hours on end and only left because I had to go eat or sleep. Multiplayer modes are also fun. It is one of the most addictive games ever created.
Graphics- 7/10 The graphics in Tetris Worlds are nothing to write home about. The backgrounds are nice and the blocks are in 3d, but still, it's no Halo. There is never any slowdown, and it runs at a very smooth framerate which is a good thing, because you will be glued to that screen for a long time.
Sound- 9/10 One of the things I absolutely love about this game is the option to use your own soundtrack. Playing Tetris and listening to your favorite CD's and songs at the same time is just incredibly awesome. If you don't want to upload your own songs, the techno-ish soundtrack included is very good also and fits the gameplay very well, but doesn't even come close to uploading your own soundtrack.
Replay Value- 10/10 Tetris never gets old. People have been playing tetris at home for a long time, and there is a reason for that. No matter how high your score gets, you will always want to top it. There is a story mode, but nobody will feel satisfied by just beating that. I play regular arcade mode most. The replay value is what makes this my favorite game on X Box.
Overall, I suggest this game to anybody who owns an X Box. It is essential to any puzzler's collection as well. If you love it, get it. If you have never played it, get it. Everyone should play Tetris.
