5.0 out of 5 stars A great innovative spin on Tetris March 30, 2006
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I picked up Tetris DS on release (march 22nd for me) and have played the game solid for over a week now. I usually don't review games on Amazon but with so much mis-information in the other reviews I figured I'd step up to the plate and help out any gamers that may be on the fense about this title.

Single player offers quite a rash of modes to play through. Here's a breakdown of what they are.

Standard - Multiple modes of the regular standard tetris puzzle game, however with new changes as sanctioned by the people that own the Tetris license (not nintendo). The main changes are multiple preview boxes for upcoming pieces, the ability to rotate a piece indefinitely while you figure out where to go, and a hold box where you can put a puzzle piece you currently have (and if you have a piece in the hold box this will store the current piece you have and replace it with the one from the box). There are multiple modes of play within standard mode. The infinite rotate doesn't hurt things at all since in the higher modes where you need it the pieces appear at the top of the stack automatically without dropping.

Catch - If you've played games like Katamari Damacy, this pretty much flows along the same lines. You have a ball of tetris pieces that you can turn, move up and down, and you use it to "catch" or run-in-to pieces that fall down. It's almost like a vertical scrolling shooting game. The goal is to create a 4x4 block which then explodes after 10 seconds. This is actually a really great mode of play and could have been a standalone game easily.

Mission - Standard tetris, except you are given a task to do (like clear 2 lines at once) and a limited time to do it. Fail and you get junk pieces in your playing field and move to the next mission.

4.0 out of 5 stars Puzzling With The DS March 21, 2006
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
There are just times where I can definitely say that puzzle games are the most addictive video games of all time. That has been definitely true for the Nintendo DS system as well. With successful game like the thrilling puzzle space game Meteos,and the recently challenging delight Pokemon Trozei, the puzzle games are in even more popularity for the handhelds. Well, within all of that hype, the classics also seem to never die, like Tetris. Arguably, the greatest video game puzzler of all time, it has never lost its momentum after nearly 20 years challenging our minds. Now that it is coming to the Nintendo DS, this one could deliver, can it?

Tetris for the Nintendo DS, continues the traditional puzzle success it has brought to so many back to the handhelds. The gameplay is just as simple to play, and fun to all ages. The game includes six different kinds of Tetris challenges from the classic traditional edition, to a new slide puzzle edition that challenges you to match your way through each mission that meets the eye. The graphics on the Nintendo DS are just beautiful, and the gameplay is still as addictive. Surprisingly, it is a little more complex to control with the Nintendo Stylus, but you can still play the game with your standard controls, which is a lot easier to play around with.

Even after all these years, Tetris DS for the Nintendo DS still delivers. The game is just as fun as it was back when it came out originally years ago. This is a definite, absolute delight for anyboy who still has the hunger for the classic puzzle challenge. I absolutely recommend this great game. It is so much fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the best September 29, 2006
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The most addictive puzzle game of all time doesn't miss a beat on the DS, and considering that Tetris was the game that launched the legacy of the GameBoy, it feels right at home here on Nintendo's new, innovative handheld. Tetris DS features all the classic elements you'd come to expect from the classic puzzle game with a few new extras and twists thrown in for good measure that will make Nintendo fanboy's mouths water. There are six modes of play in this incarnation of the game: there's the Standard mode which is just as the name implies, but the top screen features looks at classic NES titles like the Super Mario Bros. series, Legend of Zelda, Metroid, Excitebike, and a few other surprises to boot. Catch Mode features a Metroid twist on things as you catch blocks and avoid Metroids. Mission mode features a Zelda backdrop and is pretty fun, while Touch mode makes use of the touch screen to line up big blocks. This mode doesn't feature much challenge, so it's not as strong as it could have been, but I disgress. Puzzle mode is basically Yoshi's Cookie, and isn't all that special on it's own, but Push mode is where Tetris DS shines. You are at the top, and the computer is at the bottom, as both attempt to push their opponent into a fiery inferno by letting the blocks drop. Push mode works exceptionally well thanks to the use of the DS Wi-Fi capability, which makes it even more of a blast to play. All in all, Tetris DS is another quality first party title for the DS that you really can't go wrong with. The longevity of Tetris doesn't slow it down one bit, and it's easily one of the best games for the system.

I've bought many versions of Tetris, but they all pale in comparison to this specific version. I would honestly cough up the 60 dollars to buy this game. Read more
