Default 10 Bucks well spent or wasted?

I recently signed up for playstation plus; and I'm glad I did, but one draw back is that now I'm skittish to pay full price when stuff comes out, only to have the plus discount come a month or two later. I know it's only a couple bucks, but it's more a matter of principle. To me, based on the mixed reviews this seems to have at minimum a plus price drop, and probably just a flat out playstation store price drop in it's near future.

I was wondering if people who've purchased it feel like it's worth the ten dollars, I'm tempted because I loved the classic, but it sounds like it doesn't even offer the classic mode; is this true?

just do ur duty and buy the damn thing. i saw the ps+ content of january and february of europe. no mention of tetris.

for a tetris nut like me 10 is nothing. i pity those who complain about the measly 10 bucks.

The marathon mode is there but it doesn't go on forever. Once you beat lv 15 the game ends. I think this is for the best though, since you're encouraged to go for the more rewarding but riskier moves (Tetris and T-spins) rather than keep it safe with simples and doubles and play forever. A whole game from lv 1 to lv 15 should last about 25 minutes.

As for the $10 price tag, as much as I love the game, I do think it's a bit too much. A price drop will surely come, but who knows when it'll happen. Are you willing to wait for 6 months or more to save 2 bucks?

Thank you very much for the info.

Well I think for the ps plus members, you're better off going with the program's pace. If you're really into tetris, then 10 bucks should not be a problem considering other games can go up to $70.

Personally, I can't see myself spending a lot of time in front of my TV playing tetris even if I bought it. But that's just me =/

$10 isnt worth it IMO. Thats what I paid for it and wish I didnt bother since I dont play it anymore. If you love Tetris then maybe its worth $10 because it does have a few interesting game modes.

It's a very sterile and basic version of Tetris, the sound effects get a little annoying, and only a few decent in-game music tracks...and like Tetris DS I find most of the non-traditional modes to be novelty and not fun after first few times.

The fans need to speak up and get someone to make a port of The New Tetris (Nintendo 64) to PSN, complete with online and just upscaled to 720p/1080p. The best (and most under-appreciated) Tetris game of all time. Gold/silver block mechanic, great soundtrack, great art and level atmospheres, great stats mixing with motivation to keep playing (building the World Wonders), etc.

Right on! The New Tetris for N64 is easily the best version of Tetris I've ever played (and I've played a ton over the last 25 years or so). I still have an N64 and a single game cart that never leaves it... The New Tetris. I was very disappointed that this version didn't have a mode where you can make the super-blocks for a bonus. Maybe they could still add it with DLC...

Overall this version is average imo... but it has potential to be improved.

I think it's 10$ well spent. Tetris is Tetris, and you get exactly what you pay for. I love it, especially if you want some fun battles with friends. Even Marathon I play over and over. Tetris gods may find it lacking because Marathon doesn't go on forever, but for the average player like me it is great. I felt so satisfied when I beat the Origin variant on Level 10.

The incomprehensible absence of skill-based matchmaking is the more likely reason
