Tetris Effect  

 

Tetris Effect flew under the radar. I saw it in a store one day and realized there was a new PS4 VR video game. The PR and Marketing folks for this game failed Family Friendly Gaming completely. I had no idea what to expect from Tetris Effect. I have played a variety of Tetris games over the years. I wondered what a Tetris VR video game would look like. Now I know, and knowing is half of the battle.

I thought Job Simulator was the only way a VR video game should be done. Tetris Effect has shattered that for me. In fact I now see another way virtual reality video games can be done. Tetris Effect is that way. We play Tetris and see some nice little 3D effects to the blocks. That is not what makes Tetris Effect so special. What makes Tetris Effect so special is all of the things going on around us in the thirty different levels.

We can play Tetris Effect in Journey Mode, and Effects Mode. In Journey Mode we play the thirty levels one at a time. We need to get so many lines completed to finish off the level. We rotate the Tetris blocks, see an outline of where it will fall and bring it won. Rinse and repeat. I felt like the block rotation was not always the way I was used to from previous Tetris games. Thankfully Tetris Effect will let you keep rotating when the block is at the bottom.

The music in Tetris Effect shocked me. There is some good music in this game. A few of the lyrics made me question this game. What are they trying to say about all of us being connected? The music in Tetris Effect really set the mood and fit with the wild graphics going on. Tetris Effect can be played in the normal PS4 without the VR. I personally preferred the VR mode in this game.

I never got sick while playing Tetris Effect. This is a very important thing for a VR video game. I had a blast playing this game. I wish the PR and Marketing people representing this game had contacted Family Friendly Gaming because I believe FFGU would financially support this game with sales. I hope to see more VR games like Tetris Effect in the coming years.
