This game is amazing on Oculus Quest 2. ♥
It's also available on GamePass. :)

Seeing you and El mention it, what is it like? Are the visual effects all around you in VR? Because that does sound pretty amazing.

Fantastic game. I have it for PSVR. I am not rebuying it for XBSX. I can't imagine I would play flat screen after playing it in VR anyway.

It's been a couple of weeks since my short time with it, but yeah...the effects are all around if I remember correctly. The 3D visuals combined with the music and sound make it a truly wonderful experience. :)

Still on the verge of getting it. Thought about buying it on the Quest, is that a good idea?

Edit: OK should've read the thread I guess :messenger_grinning:

Yes

I am up to #70 on the Master Mode leaderboard, I want to finish in the top 50 at least.

Only about 140,000 rotations away from getting the Platinum too!

I picked this up during a sale on the Epic store. What is strange about this one is that it doen't run VR through Epic, but your choice of Steam VR or Oculus VR. This is probably because Epic is just a store without VR features.

I guess people like me get the free update for this though, which is nice. Even though I bought it on Epic I would have preferred buying it on Steam. I don't understand why this game is available on the MS store, Oculus Quest Store, PS4 Store, and the Epic store, but not on Steam.

I know very well that everyone but Epic is getting a 30% cut, so that can't be there reason for not putting it up on Steam. To lose out on the potential sales/customer base of Steam seems like a poor business decision that many of these companies keep making and it doesn't make sense to me.

It's the best Tetris game I've played hands down. And Tetris has basically perfected it's design.

But.. Best game in years all up? I mean it's Tetris. Its great but I wouldn't go that far. I suppose it's all opinion.. But I think gaming has evolved in incredible ways allowing new exciting experiences that were not possible in the 80s.

Are zone battle rankings glitched? My number of wins is stuck at 2 on the leaderboard, even though i'd won over 30 by now.

Played the shit out of it at launch on PS4 + PS VR. Just noticed it's on Gamepass PC the other day and ended up doing another journey mode run. It's outstanding.

Fuck no, I don't play nearly enough Tetris for that. Beginner when I want to clear without much trouble, normal if I feel like stepping it up. I could probably do expert by restarting some individual stages but that's kinda cheating.

If you want to play on your phone, i haven't gotten Parsec set up properly but i am doing it that way, and it's not too bad except make sure to zoom in.

The only negative comment I have about the game is that it was somewhat overpriced at launch. Tetris is Tetris after all and it made it a harder sell than it should have been. They should have priced lower and sold the OST alongside from the start.

It’s free with gamepass though. Day one.

Was out on Playstation in Nov 2018. Loved the pre-launch weekend demo and was sold on it as a game, but I waited 6 months or so and got for half the price in a sale because I felt it represented kinda weak value for money. Had it been £10-15 cheaper and came bundled with the OST I'd likely have bitten sooner.

Tried this on GamePass.

Maybe it’s great in VR, but on a regular screen, it’s the worst Tetris I’ve played.
Every single thing that I guess makes it “immersive” in VR, seems to be made to be distracting without VR. Some visuals turn the action into a mess, many songs are annoying, and the rumble is just a nuisance. Even with the gameplay window at max zoom, sometimes it’s hard to read the screen correctly.

After months of the perfection that is Tettis 99, this one feels like a bad joke.

Best way to test your new epilepsy drugs. I tried it for like few minutes and decided that it's just tetris(shock!) and moved on.

Holy crap, just tried this, was on my list of try and delete soon, but its amazing, gameplay, visuals, sound, all in synergy in such an unexpected way. Thank God for gamepass, I would never have tried it!
