Excerpt: Tetris Party Deluxe impressed me right from the start. This Wii game is the first Tetris game I have played in years that reminds me of the original game. That is not saying any of the other Tetris iterations were bad. None of them had the exact feel of the original to me. Then there are plenty of other modes that will keep family members busy for months.
Conclusion: Soyons objectifs (parce que c'est un peu le but), Tetris Party Deluxe est un titre que l'on ressortira assez facilement lors de la venue impromptue d'amis. Et comme vous avez parfaitement le droit de leur interdire de poser le pied chez vous, le fait de pouvoir jouer à Tetris en ligne et d'avoir à disposition un certain nombre d'alternatives de jeu saura apporter à l'utilisateur unique que vous êtes la satisfaction d'en avoir eu pour son argent.
Pros: Le concept indémodable de Tetris, Certains modes relancent l'intérêt du jeu, Se mesurer au monde entier, Musiques agréables dans leur ensemble
Cons: Sent la redite, Utilisation assez basique de la Wiimote, Pad GameCube incompatible
Lots of great Tetris variations, plus safe online play.

Summary: Parents need to know that Tetris Party Deluxe , the newest incarnation of the seminal "falling block" puzzle game, offers online multiplayer options. Kids can play either with "friends" they've got registered on their console or with random players on the global network. Live chatting is only available for those who have the Wii Speak peripheral when they are playing with registered friends.
Conclusion: So is this the definitive version of Tetris for the current console generation? Sure. But is it so much better than the WiiWare release so as to warrant another, way more expensive, purchase? I'm going to say no. Get your money's worth elsewhere.
Pros: It's still Tetris, and it's still awesome, Some cool new modes, 6 player online competitions
Cons: The price, Not enough new stuff to warrant a new purchase, Super simple visuals
Conclusion: Tetris Party is a must-have WiiWare game but I can't say the same for its retail counterpart. It costs over twice as much and only offers a few extras. Tetris Party Deluxe is still a great, full-featured game of Tetris but if you already own the downloadable version (and you should) you've already got your bases covered.
Excerpt: Since its original release more than 20 years ago, Tetris has graced dozens of consoles with its ubiquitous block dropping. While each release puts a new spin on Alexey Pajitnov's classic, the best Tetris games remain faithful to the formula that was already nearly perfect at its inception. When Tetris Party launched on WiiWare almost two years ago, it kept these basics intact and introduced some interesting twists.
Pros: Wide variety of new, innovative gameplay mechanics, Most of the new mechanics are available in multiplayer matches
Cons: Online modes are extremely limited, Lackluster presentation
Excerpt: Last year, Tetris Party hit WiiWare, bringing one of the most addictive, beloved games of all time to Nintendo's system in downloadable form. It was, in a word, fantastic, and most of the problems could be ignored because of the medium. Downloadable games (WiiWare and DSiWare in particular) are given some leeway, since the developers are trying to accomplish less with less, and usually, justifiably, charge less as well.
