Tetris Battle Review:
Every round you play in Tetris Battle is against another player. You can choose to play either in two, four, or six player battles, each of which has its own rules and quirks. In the two-player mode, you have two minutes to clear away as many lines as possible. Who ever has the most when the timer reaches zero wins. But to make things even more interesting, the developers have introduced a series of “maps,” which take the form of pre-made stages already populated with blocks. The blocks are arranged in different patterns on each map, so each one has its own strategies. There’s quite a few, and they range from fun to very, very hard.
Tetris Battle has a great match-making system that always ensures you’re playing against similarly skilled opponents. You’ll move up the ranks as you win matches, but you’ll also move down after successive losses. And if you start man-handling your opponents, the game will actually suggest you move up to the next skill level. This ensures that you’re rarely severely outmatched, which creates a much more enjoyable experience overall. There are also, of course, leaderboards so that you can compare scores and ranking with friends and other players.
