Product Description

The original portable Tetris game was a smash hit on the Game Boy system. The new Tetris: Axis game lets players use the magic of the Nintendo 3DS system to jump into the action in 3D without the need for special glasses. The game includes more than 20 different modes – some familiar, some new. Up to eight players can compete in wireless multiplayer battles, even if only one player has a game card. Tetris: Axis also makes use of the augmented-reality and SpotPass features of Nintendo 3DS.

I've been wanting another game for my 3ds, and figured this would be a great fit. I was 100% right. I love this game!!!

First of all, you can play the regular Tetris game we all know and love: Marathon Mode right from the start menu. Then, on the Main menu selection screen, you have many different Tetris games you can play. Here's a list of all of them:

(Featured Modes)

- Marathon -(Classic Tetris)

- Fever -(Play in a narrow grid and try to clear as many lines within 60 sec.)

- Computer Battle -(You play against the computer in either Knockout or Normal mode)

- Survival -(Pretty much self-explanatory. Blocks come up from underneath as well)

(Party Modes)

- Jigsaw -(Like a puzzle. You use tetris blocks to try and form the picture shown)

- Fit -(You need to fit the blocks into a grid. Almost like the game "Shape Inlay")

- Bombliss Plus -(You use explosive tetris blocks to try to clear the level)

- Capture -(There are stars in the grid that you must surround with blocks to capture)

- Sprint -(Fast paced Tetris. Must clear 40 lines as fast as possible)

- Shadow Wide -(Use blocks to fill in a shape, such as a house. Try for accuracy)

- Tower Climber -(Use blocks to try and climb the tower)

- Stage Racer Plus -(Race through Tetris blocks with a block as your "car")

(AR Games)

- AR Marathon -(Same as Marathon, but uses AR card)

- AR Climber -(Same as tower climber, but uses AR card)

If that isn't enough, you can even play online against friends or even strangers from around the world. Also has Download play so you can play with others with only one game card in one system.

Axis is probably the best version of Tetris to date. I haven't played Tetris DS or Party Deluxe, but I don't think they can top this :) I may get them anyways just to try them out. If you're a fan of this game, then without a doubt I would recommend this in a heartbeat. With over 20 modes, including the AR functionally, you'll never get bored as this has extreme infinite replay value! And you can do wifi, local, or download play with other 3DS gamers!! Tetris has never been this fun and you'll easily get used to the controls. But I warn you, your hands will be glued to your 3DS until the battery needs to be charged ;)

I have to call it how I see it. How do I review this, do I review the game for what it is or do I review the game compared to all other tetris games. If I review the game as it is...its great. Alot of fun. There is alot of options. I love the tower climber, I like the AR modes. I enjoy the odd mix of Christmas music with a new re-working of the classic tetris theme. The 3D is ok, it bothered my eyes after awhile and I don't usually have a problem with the 3D. I would never have guessed Tetris in 3D would give me trouble but it was bothering to me. I think it was that the blocks are see through. So the depth effect goes all the way to the background. But that is hard on the eyes, you want to concentrate on the blocks yet it feels like the 3D is taking you all the way to background rather then the blocks. Hard to explain words. I turned it off, its not necessary. Well thats the game, right there. Its Tetris, its fun, its colorful, it kills time. What more can you expect.

Well here is the thing, I wish I never played all the Tetris games of the past, but I have. I've played all the official ones and some clones. My favorite was always the Gameboy version. Despite its simplicity, its midi music. I just loved it and even after all these years, I still love it. Over time I played various versions throughout the years. They were all good, some even very good. They all had one thing in common, they were very colorful, very bright and loud. I got bored of it. It was the same thing over and over, then on the PS3, on the Playstation Network, they released TETRIS...Tetris for the PSN. I fell in love. Because Tetris on the PSN is everything all those other Tetris games wasn't. It wasn't super colorful, it was slick, it was relaxing, cleverly designed, almost moody.

If your a competitive player like myself, get yourself a copy of Tetris DS if you do not own one already. This version of the game is great for kids. Some of the new modes are fun, along with the 3D animations. For serious players, the 3D is not a deal breaker as you can turn it off however the 3D animations you cannot turn off and this hinders game play considerably. Every time you have a Tetris or similar line-clearing feat the game stutters every time to display an obnoxious animation of blocks being blown up which also covers the game area. Again, this will not bother people who stay in Single player mode, only multiplayer and only those who are competitive.

As for the multiplayer modes, classic versus has not changed except for the fact that you can hardly find anyone to play. The majority of players are playing modes that have items enabled and there design flaws with how some of them are used (such as switching play areas). If you are a competent player it will certainly provide a challenge as you will have five people teaming up against you with items. This I enjoyed however it does get old considering the only reason you will lose a game is due to the cheap value the items bring and not due to a skilled opponent.

If you are not expecting to play online and only against the CPU (in classic versus mode), you will be disappointed if you were competent with Tetris DS. Compared to Tetris DS, the highest difficulty rating in Axis (10) is CLOSE to level 4 in the DS version. For competitive players, level 4 difficulty in Tetris DS is an easy stepping stone to the complete 180 in difficulty that level 5 provides. Again, if your not competitive nor have you played Tetris 3DS this should not bother you.

Bottom Line: I love Tetris.
