All the compiled reviews from Game Rankings are in, and Tetris DS scored an average game ratio of 90%. I guess that Russian music, when done right, never gets old. Here's what some of the critics are saying:
  • Gamerz Edge 94% - "Tetris is already extremely addictive; when you add to a formula that has endured so remarkably over the past two decades several more completely new and unique ways to play, you have a game that is nearly impossible to put down. Tetris DS is simply one of the greatest puzzle games in years."
  • GameSpot 75% - "Tetris DS has a lot going for it--plenty of gameplay modes, amazing game sharing, and online play--which makes it all the more disappointing that it contains no 'pure' Tetris experience, and features a weak selection of online gameplay modes."
  • GamePro 100% - "Tetris DS is chock full of anything and everything you could ever want in the classic portable puzzler. It has six unique modes, each based on original Nintendo themes of Mario, Donkey Kong, Zelda, and Metroid."
