    Can you say fun!!

    This is one of those old school games that the gaming industry still has not found a way to improve upon. All you do is stack different shapes in an attempt to make solid rows, which proceed to disappear. The more rows... Read Full Review

What Gamespot Users have to say about Tetris

    Unique name in the puzzle genre, supernova in the galaxy of games.

    Ahh, the endless falling shapes going on and on. Who doesn't know this game? The holy grail of puzzle games without a doubt, in which one must make horizontal lines to earn points and, if in the correct game mode, to win... Read Full Review

    I hate this game...but I just can't stop playing it!

    Tetris for the NES…what a piece of garbage. Tetris is a great game, a phenomenal game, but this version is so bad, I can't play it. None-the-less, I continue to play because I'm so damn good at the mobile version, that I... Read Full Review

    I love this game.

    Where did anyone come up with this kind of idea. This game is so stupid yet so addicting and fun. Man Nintendo is good at making games like this. Stupid games that are really fun and are essential. There's so many versio... Read Full Review

    Tetris, the puzzle game!

    What to say? But above all what to say that has not been said about this game? The game, the true game created a madness only a few other games managed to do in my memory: space invaders (in Japan), pac-man, super mario ... Read Full Review

    This game turned puzzles into a downright pathology.

    One of the greatest quarter-drainers since Pac-Man and Space Invaders, the puzzle game Tetris is devilishly simple. Pieces fall out of the sky. You twist them, fit them together and try to clear as many lines as possible... Read Full Review

    Considering how simple the conscept is, it is hard to believe what a great game it is.

    What can you say about tetris? It is everywhere. Maybe one of the most usual mobile games. Everybody no what tetris is so I possibly don't have to tell you, but hey whatever. The conscept is: Four boxes makes diferent ... Read Full Review

    Few games can stand the test of time as well as Tetris has. It's a true video game classic.

    Tetris is, without a doubt, one of the biggest names in video game history. Since its birth in Russia in the mid-1980s, it has become one of the most popular games around. Versions of Tetris can be found on pretty much e... Read Full Review

    Not only is it the original puzzle game, it's also one of the greatest you can find, regardless of being 17 years old.

    There's not much to say about Tetris since it's so simple and most everyone has already played it. You stack up oddly shaped boxes to try and make lines. The more lines you make, the higher your score. Of course, the gra... Read Full Review
