THE GOOD: - This is Tetris, everyone knows Tetris - The new features they added - MPlay, for the first month or two - Everyone can play this! - New game styles

SUMMARY: This game is all about the nostalgia!
As such, you will either love it or hate it. Let me explain:
At first, this game will be fun simply for the fact it's Tetris. Pick it up and play, and you'll soon find yourself pleased by the addition to hold a shape until you want to use it later. You may also appreciate the fact you can see the next five shapes and plan ahead. The little shadow at the bottom, indicating where the current piece being played will fall, might also be appealing.
You'll continue to play as the game speeds up, aiming for higher and higher scores, potentially competing with friends, until you reach a point and you'll start to want more.
But don't fret; Tetris DS won't let you down just yet!

THE GOOD: Tetris has been around for some good time now. There are plenty of Tetris games out there so you may ask "Why should I get this one?" The answer is simple. This is possibly the best Tetris game out there. There are over six unique modes to chose from. They are: Standard mode, puzzle mode, mission mode, catch mode, push mode, and touch mode. They each are fun in there own way and each give you a score which is added to your total Tetris score.
THE BAD: Even with the wi-fi, you must remember this is a Tetris game. It can become quite repetitive. Some of the new modes might not be your specific cup of tea, but I'm sure you will gladly enjoy the sight of the more entertaining ones. For the new comers, Don't expect to automatically become good at this game. It requires effort and strategy that some players may not want to put in.
