Puyo Puyo Tetris Review

Puyo Puyo Tetris mixes Puyo Puyo (also known as Puyo Pop) with Tetris. Is it any good though? Read on to find out what I think of Puyo Puyo Tetris. 

The Great:

Different Game Modes:

There’s your normal versus mode that lets you play with up to 4 people. There are also fusion, swap, big bang, party, and challenge modes. Every mode adds a unique way to play and even though I didn’t enjoy the majority of this game I appreciate the fact that there are so many different modes to play.

The Good:

Graphics:

Puyo Puyo Tetris is a pretty game. The characters are drawn nicely, the Tetris and Puyo blocks look great, and the background is nice and colorful. The victory, or defeat, screens are average looking though and leave much to be desired. There’s not really much I can say here though. It’s Tetris… How do you expect it to look?

Gameplay:

At first, I lost every match I was in. I was on a 10 game losing streak before I won my first match and it felt good to win. Once I learned how to chain my combos together I was actually beating other people online. I had some fun with it, but it quickly got repetitive for me.

Chaining up combos requires a lot of thinking. I like that about the game a lot. Letting your screen fill up with Puyo or Tetris blocks is a good way to chain massive combos together and destroy your opponent. The online community is very active, which is a good, but I mostly played offline because I don’t feel like having my ass handed to me by a master of this game.

The Bad:

It’s Boring:

I wanted to be honest without ripping this game apart, but it’s fucking boring. I’ve tried many times to get into this game and I can’t. The most fun I’ve had is watching online replays on the fastest speeds and wishing I could play half as well as they do. I don’t and I don’t care enough to learn how to.

Adventure Mode:

I appreciate the fact that this game has a campaign mode, but I didn’t enjoy it. I never want to play it again because it forces me to play Tetris when I really just wanted to play the Puyo side of things.

Tetris:

I’m not a Tetris fan at all. I never spent hours of my day as a kid learning how to master Tetris or playing with friends. Tetris was boring back then and it’s boring now. I don’t understand how people love this game, but more power to you.

Sounds:

The story mode is fully voice acted. I wish it wasn’t some times because everyone sounded terrible to me. Some npcs have really high pitched voices while others just sound like your typical anime characters. The soundtrack is very forgettable and can even be annoying at times. It’s really loud too and that didn’t help me enjoy myself at all.

The Verdict: 

Puyo Puyo Tetris isn’t for everyone. If you don’t like Tetris you won’t like this game. I had some fun with it, but most of the game is very annoying to me. My kids love the game, which is nice, but I can go without playing it again. This game is okay, but it’s not a game I would recommend people go out and buy even for the $30 price tag.
