Tetris Evolution (X360)

Apparently this title is getting released next week with only a $30 price tag. As much as I do enjoy Lumines, Tetris was one of the first games I really spent a lot of time playing. Still, there's a part of me that isn't sure, even at the reduced price. I mean, after all, it is just Tetris, if that makes any sense.


Here's the achievements:

I love Tetris even to this day & have bought multiple versions over the years. One thing that's key is that it's very easy to make seemingly simple changes that fundamentaly screw it up & that playing before purchase for me is important. If they messup the timing of drops, or the movement when dropping, the game can become far far too easy. For me.

So from looking at the screenshots, I do somewhat have to wonder why this isn't simply a Live Arcade title. While it looks like a decent enough version of Tetris - even at $30 unless there are significant modes that enhance the basic game - I don't know that it's priced quite right. U guess one of the things that concerns me a bit is that the single player game (which is usually how I played Tetris anyway) looks like the playing feild is about 1/3 the screen with the rest of it being a static background. And while I'll presume that the music is a bit better - I remember installing a similar looking game from 5.25" discs - is that an exageration - perhaps, but not that much of one. I guess my point being, where exactly is the "evolution"? That said, as long as it plays well, I could see picking it up when it hits the $20 or under range.


Now Tetrisphere on the Wii VC - that would be an instant download :)
