Tetris Effect

Critics Consensus (Play It)

Fresh music, dazzling gameplay, and eye-wateringly immersive, Tetris Effect presents players with an unforgettable experience and a great take on a classic formula.

Game Info

Named after a real-world phenomenon where players’ brains are so engrossed that images of the iconic falling Tetrimino blocks (i.e. the Tetris playing pieces) linger in their vision, thoughts, and even dreams, TETRIS® EFFECT amplifies this magical feeling of total immersion by surrounding you with fantastic, fully three-dimensional worlds that react and evolve based on how you play. Music, backgrounds, sounds, special effects—everything, down to the Tetris pieces themselves, pulse, dance, shimmer, and explode in perfect sync with how you’re playing.

“A masterful reimagining of Tetris that changes little about the core gameplay but still manages to create one of the most immersive video games ever.”
