Bottom line, there is no reason to buy this game if you own a previous version of Tetris (or 3 or more like Chi and I do). The New Tetris tries to offer something new with the focus on forming squares, but it could be too much of a departure from the norm for Tetris veterans.
First-time or casual Tetris fans, however, would be more open to this addition and the multiplayer mode would be quite enjoyable for any player. The focus on accumulating lines to unlock new locations has its appeal but it's an acquired taste and I strongly suggesting renting this game first.
