Do you like Tetris? Would you be willing to pay $30 to play Tetris on the Xbox 360? This is pretty much the sole consideration when deciding if Tetris Evolution is right for you. The single-player and multiplayer options are solid yet predictable, and...

Since it's a game that is enjoyed by most anyone from every walk of life, Tetris has become something that cannot seemingly be screwed up - the formula is simple, time-tested, and proven to result in countless hours of playtime. Unfortunately, Tetris...

While it ends up being a disappointing game due to its bloated backdrops, poor music, and control problems, Tetris Evolution does a fine job at providing players with an enjoyable, basic game of Tetris on the 360. I think it would have been better...

Trials Evolution Review

 

If Trials Evolution came packaged with a ‘swear jar', I'd be a very poor man. Like an irritating nephew craving your attention, it has a habit of getting its own way. Often, the game kicks you in the shin with any minor lapse of concentration. It also...

Trials Evolution Review

 

The thrilling rides and engrossing competitions return along with robust improvements in Trials Evolution.

Simple, superbly tuned controls ; Creative tracks are a joy to ride ; Leaderboard contests and live multiplayer races are both exciting ; Easy to share and download user-created tracks

Online multiplayer takes a long time to connect ; Some pretty bad songs on the soundtrack

This all adds up to a lot of Trials awesomeness for 1,200 Microsoft points. Though on a core level Trials Evolution is very similar to its predecessor, it does everything bigger and better. The triumph of conquering a tough track, the thrill of...

It’s hard to believe that three years ago a little title called Trials HD would make such a big buzz on XBLA. Here we are today, now finally able to play the sequel, Trial Evolution, where it’s survival of the fastest. Where Trials HD was primarily a...

One of the few certainties in the video game world is that every console will land some iteration of Tetris. The puzzle title is still regarded as one of the best in the genre, and very few games if any have ever duplicated the simple yet addictive...

It's Tetris ; Multiplayer modes ; Overall themes, backgrounds, and music are good

This should have been an Xbox Live Arcade title ; Even though it's Tetris and the lowest priced Xbox 360 title, s Tetris and the lowest priced Xbox 360 title, $30 is too much to charge ; Some of the music is bad0 is too much to charge ; Some of the...

Tetris Evolution is the case-in-point for the existence of Xbox Live Arcade, and to not release it as a download is moronic. Not only would the game move more copies if the core was Tetris Evolution is the case-in-point for the existence of Xbox Live...

The game is exactly as you remember it, simple, yet frustratingly difficult. One of the first true puzzle games, Tetris can be a good time for those who have not already tried it on other systems and moved on to more complex puzzlers. The idea is to...

If the 360 version of Live has one chink in its armor at this point, it is its frustrating inability to handle a simple puzzle game properly. Suffering from the same sluggish play as Lumines Live, Tetris Evolution is too frustrating to stomach playing...

Wanted: Another hole in head. Or, another version of Tetris, as long as it looks real purdy. But barring that, just another hole, please.

The only thing more remarkable than the longevity of Tetris -- the Mother of all Puzzle Games -- is the number of iterations of Tetris. The latest, Tetris Evolution, does little to change the basic premise of geometrically shaped blocks (two...

Tetris Evolution review for the XBOX360

 

Well, it's not intelligent design.

It's still Tetris

Minus Soviet anything; Crappy backgrounds; Annoying music; Pointless multiplayer

Tetris Evolution is poorly conceived and squarer than its own bricks. Although it works, it seriously mucks up the formula of its ancestor. The stale gameplay needed to be updated, but wasn't touched. The graphics and music got updated, but updated...

It's perhaps the greatest game ever created. Well, Tetris itself is, at least. A timeless classic, dropping those four-block shapes can consume hours and hours despite being simple enough to play on any cell phone or modern calculator. But when it...

30 is a lot for Tetris, especially when most of the extras you've got piled on top of the basic game are worthless. You're better off playing Tetris elsewhere, or waiting for an Arcade version.
