This is the Tetris game to own folks, even if you don't like the cutsy Disney characters. There's a ton of variety in this little Game Boy cartridge. The graphics are excellent, the music is catchy, and the control is right's a perfect Tetris game. And since Tetris is one of the greatest videogames ever created, Magical Tetris Challenge well deserves a perfect 10.

Not only has Capcom driven home a gameplay treat with MTC, but the visuals and audio have also come along for the ride. Graphically, the Tetris pieces are easy to see, background graphics are nondistracting, and the Disney characters are all nicely drawn and animated. Imagine Tetris DX with cute Disney artwork, and you have a pretty fair idea of this game's visuals. Supporting this graphical deluge, the music and sound effects further add to MTC's delightfulness. In-game tunes are catchy and upbeat, while the sound effects do their job without distracting the player. Overall, Magical Tetris Challenge is a winner of a game. Solid gameplay, excellent graphics, quality sound, support for two players, and the quest mode all combine for replay value that's out of this world.

Na de N64 is er nu dus ook een PSX-versie. Niet echt origineel natuurlijk, maar wel verschrikkelijk leuk. Speelbaar tot je vingers er af vallen.

En plus de tout cela, un ultime mode Quest est également accessible où l’on affronte de nombreux personnages tirés de l’univers de Walt Disney afin de leur soutirer quelques monnaies sonnantes et trébuchantes. Mais il ne faut pas rêver, s’il s’agit bien d’une partie d’aventure, le côté RPG reste embryonnaire. Quel que soit le personnage sélectionné, l’histoire reste identique et l’action devient rapidement répétitive. Dans l’ensemble, la cartouche dispose d’une durée de vie considérable et Tetris ne faillit pas à sa réputation de drogue dure ! Les graphismes sont particulièrement léchés pour un jeu de réflexion et la musique est entraînante. Enfin, la cartouche dispose d’une fonction de sauvegarde, ce qui est la moindre des choses pour enregistrer ses high scores.

For older Disney and Tetris addicts, Magical Tetris Challenge is a blessing in disguise. Ironically, the merciless computer player will frustrate younger kids. Curious gamers, however, will be satisfied with a quick weekend rental.

Magical Tetris Challenge is hardly the piece of software we were all hoping for from Capcom. But if you can get past the Disney theme (or, better yet, enjoy the Disney theme), it's an engulfing game of Tetris that is sure to make an addict out of you. My biggest gripe with the title is its lacking multiplayer mode. Two players? C'mon Capcom, you could have managed better than that. Otherwise, I recommend any Tetris fanatics give it a try. Be warned though, it's nowhere as good as Seta's Tetris 64.

I was really surprised by this game. It's an excellent addition to the Tetris family, although I could live without the story segments. The battle in a versus game has many more facets. Fantastic 2-D graphics.

This is a fun, simple and addictive title that has players controlling Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Goofy as they adventure through the land challenging other players in Tetris battles. In the Quest mode, the Tetris games include the standard head-to-head mode, but others are trickier puzzles that require forethought and quick reflexes to solve. Each of the characters has a little ministory in the Quest mode, but if you're looking for some quick Tetris action, you can just play it without having to hunt down magical coins. The game has seven different intriguing versions of Tetris -- Magical, Up-Down, Towering, Harmony, Task, Signal and Fill-the-Gap. While the Tetris modes are pretty standard, putting them in a single-player Quest mode adds new life to one of the most addictive games ever created, and the addition of two-player modes via a Game Link Cable certainly doesn't hurt. If you're a Tetris lover, this is definitely a title to pick up.

Är man liten eller nybörjare kanske man uppskattar det här spelet som känns som en barnversion. Annars gör man bäst i att hålla sig undan.
Voilà un casse-briques qu’il est bon ! Pas mal d’originalité, de la reprise aussi, évidemment. Bonne jouabilité, bande son travaillée, décors sympa et de nombreux niveaux de difficulté sont autant de réjouissances. Notons la gestion bien dosée de la fonction vibration. Toutefois, Defi au tetris magique s’adresse en priorité aux jeunes joueurs, de par son environnement Dysney omniprésent.

I heartily recommend this game for everyone from the Tetris first-timer to the grizzled veteran. It's the best console Tetris game I've encountered and it includes everything one could ask for without the tacky Russian music. Skip through the cheesy Disney story, and head right for the gameplay. Once again, it's not how you package Tetris, but how well the gameplay works. Magical Tetris Challenge has managed to retain the puzzle with some great new additions.

Tetris restera toujours Tetris, et ce n'est pas cette verion qui enlèvera quoi que ce soit à la légende de ce hit, bien au contraire !

In the end, Magical Tetris Challenge does offer a degree of the familiar cataleptic state puzzle game fans are so fond of, but if you already own a Tetris game, you probably don't need to buy this one. The Disney name and the N64's capabilities bring nothing significantly new to the Tetris name that you didn't already appreciate before.

Capcoms N64-Debüt ist nur für ausgesprochene Tetris-Sammler zu empfehlen oder als Geschenk für sehr junge Spieler, die zudem das erste Mal ein Pad in der Hand halten.
