Actually makes you want to play tetris... again

I found the local four player mode to be an extremely fun and the xbox live is quick paced and well balanced. The game play is what you would expect from a tetris game although there are a surprising amount of different game modes.
The achievements are the best part because they are interesting and challenging without too much frustration. There are also only a few achievements to go along with xbox live which is nice considering many puzzle games will have the horribly annoying achievement with the word "expert" tied to having to play 10 hours of xbox live. Seriously, if you play 10 hours of a puzzle game on xbox live then you really need to turn off the 360 and get some fresh air.
The price tag is now $20 which is more than a good value for all of the content you will get. There are also a bunch of extra features including backgrounds that look amazing and good music (for the most part). The graphics are really clear and crisp consisting of the traditional 2D animations while the gameplay is solid.
I was surprised how fun tetris can be and for a small price tag you will be entertained for hours. In comparison, tetris splash is available on XB LA for 800 credits. This game has only one mode, horrible achievements (including the 10 hrs of xbox live achievement) and a background filled with fish. I left my xbox on for a while and when I returned, the tetris game turned into a fish screen saver. This may be cool for chicks but if I wanted to have a cute looking system, I would have bought a Wii.
In short, tetris evolution is worth the $20 price tag, ou will be amazed when you finally put the COD4 or Halo 3 aside to play a classic remake with al ot of extras
