Parents have absolutely nothing to fear. If there is a game that is safer and less offensive to play than Tetris, Id like someone to send me an email and let me know what it is.
Gamers in general would be wise to add this game to their library if they dont already own a copy of Tetris. Besides the new additions to the classic formula, up to four players can join in on some block-dropping battles. The screen starts getting a bit small with just two people, but just having the option is great.
Puzzle fans already know what Tetris is all about, and most likely already own at least one (if not more) versions of the phenomenon. Still, Tetris Worlds is worth looking into if you cant get enough of the game and are looking for new ways to play it.
Hearing-Impaired gamers might have a bit of trouble with Tetris Worlds. The challenge goals in story mode are spoken aloud without any text to clearly say what those goals are. You can figure it out by looking at some of the games peripheral information, but I dont see why Blue Planet couldnt have added a few simple lines of text to make the game equally accessible. Besides that one issue, the game has no other significant auditory information or cues.
Currently, he's got about 42 minutes a night to play because adulting is a timesuck, but despite that, he's a happily married guy with two kids who both have better K/D ratios than he does.
Brad still loves Transformers, he's on Marvel Puzzle Quest when nobody at the office is looking, and his favorite game of all time is the first Mass Effect -- and he thought the trilogy's ending was Just Fine, Thanks.
