    Pretty good review. Falls a bit flat on me because I don’t plan on getting an iPhone, nor do I particularly like Tetris, but that’s beside the point.

    Also why have we swapped the ?/10 rating scale fro the 5 stars rating scale?

    Nice review. But are you guys aware that there is a Tetris game called “Tris” that’s free on the App store right now? It’s what used to be on the installer for jailbroken iPhones, but it found it’s way to the installer. And it seems to me that EA just stole the controls from Tris too.

    Since mobile phones weren’t made specifically for gaming, there generally isn’t a lot of meat on their bones. So reviewing a cell-phone/ipod game from a scale of 1 to 10 felt a little absurd to me. In addition, I’ve had a number of complaints about my rating system (even from Tim himself, curse him!) and felt it was time for a change.

    I’m planning on only using this rating system for the iPhone / iPod Touch games, but I’m going to give it more thought before I promise anything.

    I happen to prefer the out of ten rating scale. Because when it’s out of five, it isn’t as acurate. 3 out of 5 could be either 6/10 or 7/10. I suppose you could remedy this with 3.5 out of 5 equaling 7/10, but then what happens to 7.5/10?

    I can see what you mean about the rating system for the games without quite as much depth though, but I think it’s a good idea to stick to the /10 rating system for console games.

    Yes, if you aren’t willing to pay $10 for Tetris, then Tris is a decent alternative. It’s not nearly as good as the EA version, but the controls are similar enough that it functions properly.

    Speaking of reviews, I took a look at a few of your older reviews, Ray. I just have a question. Shouldn’t you rethink your top 10 games of all time? Because, your review of Brawl made it seem like you thought that it was better than Melee.

    It’s definitely better than Melee, which is obviously why you’re right: I need to redo the top ten list soon….

    And while you’re at it, stick a Metroid game in there somewhere. XD Just kidding, but I’m curious why it’s not in the honorable mentions section at least. Just not a Metroid fan?

    However, I do very much like number 7, though it would be number 2 on my list. 🙂

    Too colorful for a colorblind person like me. I still prefer the lime green puke colors of the original Game Boy version. I still think that’s the best version ever made, It’s portable and its tetris… what more could a person want?
