Is there anything more entrancing than viewing a barrage of
randomly-shaped blocks raining down on your computer screen? In theory
that probably doesn't sound like it guarantees a thrill-ride, but this
simple, ingenious little classic in the video game realm knew how to
put it into deliciously addictive practice. You know how it works a
succession of square-based shapes start falling one by one and it's up
to you to arrange them into perfect horizontal lines, allowing them to
disappear the second they're completed. Keep the pile of blocks low and
manageable at all times they'll keep on falling no matter what, and
if the pile gets out of control, that's when the fatal 'Game Over'
slogan flashes. I have clear memories of playing it as a kid through to
my early teens, and no matter how many lines I sorted and blocks I
eliminated, and the eventual pile-ups I would inevitably endure, it was
a game I kept on going back to. Then I'd end up getting side-tracked by
something else, leave it dormant for a while, then finally rediscover
it and get addicted all over again. I'm sure I'd still be giving it a
go every so often even today if I hadn't misplaced my copy. :(
A fraction of this humble game's appeal would have to be attributed to the unforgettable theme music and was there ever a more beautifully catchy electronic score to accompany your game play? I never got tired of hearing that tune, or the sound effects at that (including that particularly satisfying sound bite you'd hear whenever you were slick enough to nail five lines in a row). But even if you removed that from the mix, it wouldn't have kept 'Tetris' from being the endearing smash that it so rightfully was. It remains full-on evidence that video games don't necessarily require cutting-edge graphics or complex game-play to be involving or successful. This one was basic, but it was fun and it was challenging, and in the end that's all you really need to have a classic on your hands. There probably isn't anything else to say, except "great game".
This is the best puzzlegame ever. I don't it is possible to make a better puzzlegame. I am only 14 years old, but i've been playing this game since i was 3. The way this game captures you, and when your lost in tetris then there is no way back.
Tetris is an addictive and fun puzzle game designed for all ages. The innovation is classic as you fit block after block to create horizontal lines that fade out once you've made them. Alexey Pajitnov has created a classic for any system. Basically, it has always been with Nintendo spawning new Tetris games (Playstation had one, Tetrisphere), but I recommend the following titles for you to play with. Tetris (not DX), for the Game Boy, reason not being the DX is the absence of everyone's favorite theme song. Then the New Tetris for Nintendo 64, because it is beautiful, has a great soundtrack and you can have four people to play against you. There are so many puzzle games out now, but Tetris is the best.
Tetris is one of the most famous video games of all time! The
characters, the jumping, the power-ups, and the sure thrill of
adventure makes this entire series a fun non-stop playing time! Below
is a brief look how I think the game is!
Game Play: The game play is very good. There is really basic controls here and is easy to perform. Novice gamers should have a good time here!
Graphics: The graphics are wonderful.
Difficulty: The game is easy but as it goes on you''s find out that it will become more difficult!
Music: The music is great! Just fantastic catchy tunes through out the game! In My opinion its some of the best music ever in a video game!
Sound: The sound is great. Nuff said!
Overall: I have always loved Tetris! If you like excellent puzzle type games then I strongly recommend you play this game!

Tetris is the hands down, best video game ever. Though only slightly ahead
of Pong, and
only because of better music. Some may think that more recent games such
Millipede or Pole Position II are vastly superior, but they have never played Tetris for 7 hours straight. Once your mind has become numb by watching falling groups of blocks, you are likely to believe anything. Hence, Tetris is the best game ever. Almost 20 years of improved technology has not improved gaming past this classic.
Oh, I have decided to change my mind. Q*Bert is actually the best game ever.
