"In the 3D age, this took Tetris to the next logical stage. By matching shapes, you break into a sphere to (e.g.) rescue that which is trapped inside. Graphically, it sensibly wasn?t overcomplicated, further accompanied by superb music score. Highly addictive in single and multiplayer modes, as all puzzle games should be. Despite this, still parts of me feel that ?if it ain?t broke?"

"+rather than rehash the same Tetris, Tetrisphere tried out an interesting 3D puzzle idea +2-player mode +music and visuals can put you into a dream-like trance +the origial Tetris creator contributed to the project +sphere moving closer to the screen on the Z-axis is more intense sensation than original -convoluted and lacks simple addictiveness of original -difficult to intuitively understand what's going on visually"
"Originally bought as a game I could enjoy with my then-girlfriend, TETRISPHERE quickly became one of my favorite puzzlers of all time. At first, being a Tetris purist, I scoffed at the tie-in title. But after peeling back each layer I discovered a rich, fevered puzzle game with then-unmatched multiplayer options for a puzzler. I have been counting the days for a VC release."
"The most unique Tetris game I've played over the years - and believe me I've played a lot. It took a little getting used to, going around a sphere, but so many cool modes became of this. Computer AI was creepy good in some modes. Tetrisphere should be on the WiiU VC! Highly recommend it, and bots w/abilities was a nice touch to the game."
"Match up the tetronimos on a rotating sphere and blast it to pieces to free a little robot trapped inside. This is an odd re-conceptualization of a classic and it almost works - at times drawing in and compelling the player to have one more go. However, dullness can set in eventually with repetitive level styles and techniques. Not as addictive as the soviet original."
"Simply one of the best puzzle games ever. The gameplay and effects were absolutely mesmerizing. Even with all the fireworks going on, there was a relaxing zen to playing this game. The controls were simple, but the game was much deeper than you would guess from the initial levels. It had that "one more level" addicting quality, and I found myself playing this often."
"Easily one of the best puzzle games ever made, but you have to be willing to learn its completely unique rules. This is a game that quite literally requires "layers" of strategy. With multiple modes that work in radically different ways, it is really like several games in one. If you stick with this game long enough to "get it" you will be hooked!"
"Tetrisphere is a different take on Tetris, utilizing a spherical puzzle on which you match shapes in order to break into each sphere's core to rescue a robot. There is some story behind this, but Tetrisphere never really bothers to explain it. Sporting dull gameplay, poor graphics and the worst version of Tetris available to man, you'd be forgiven for skipping out on it."
