This is a game that I’ve been playing since the release on the NES. Now I might not have known what I was doing on the NES and just trying to make different designs on the board, but when this game was released for the PS3 I was a complete master at it. I had not only mastered the NES version, but countless others and it was time for one more, except I never finished this game. Keep reading to find out why.
There is no story for Tetris. You basically set up your game and start moving your blocks around in order to make lines. The more lines you get, the more points you get, and the more points you get the higher level you get. A higher level of Tetris also means a higher level of speed that the blocks are moving down towards you at. This makes for great fun, and the addition of multiplayer for this game wasn’t bad either, if you had someone to play with.
While this isn’t my favorite version of Tetris, I would have to go with the classic NES version as my favorite, I will say that this is my favorite PlayStation version of Tetris. There has been a PS4 version, and we’ll get to why I wasn’t so happy with that one and why I didn’t finish it later on. Now onto the PS3 version though. I thoroughly enjoyed this game, even though none of the later released versions of Tetris stick close to the NES one, I liked the new spin on this game. I liked the challenges, I liked the new style, and I even liked the multiplayer, when I had someone to play with. Overall it was just an enjoyable experience. Even though I enjoyed playing this game, I also never finished it. That’s mostly on me because even though I could play Tetris for hours, days even, there were just other things to play at the time and while I continued to try to fit this game in, my time with this game just got less and less until I just stopped playing.
There are only 12 trophies for this game and as you can see from the picture above, I was able to get 6 of them. I think that getting half the trophies for this game isn’t all that bad actually and I’m pretty proud of myself for doing it. There are a few difficult trophies left, some multiplayer ones and I’m not even sure if the servers are still running for this game at this point, and some challenge trophies left. Overall it’s a do-able trophy list if you have the time and dedication to get all 12 trophies.
Probability of this game getting played again…5 out of 5.
I was scrolling through my downloaded PS3 game about a week back and seen this game and I kind of got into that Tetris mood all over again. I’m not sure when I’m going to be able to play or if I’ll actually go and play, but I would like to think that one day I will go and replay this game possibly soon if I have some extra time. I know the whole extra time thing seems like a joke at this point, but it’s true. If I had some extra time I would like to go and play this game. Not even for the trophies, but just for fun. I’m completely happy with my A rank in this game and at least having half of the trophies for it.
Now it’s your turn. Love this game? Hate this game? Have been playing Tetris forever like me and have a favorite version? Let me know down in the comments section below and for next week another unfinished game. Another game that I started long ago and then tried to finished it because I was trying to raise my overall completion. As you can tell that didn’t work out so well since I’ll be talking about it next week. So come back next week so I can tell you why I never finished Peggle.
