Columns isn't quite as classic as Tetris, but it offers a unique take on the falling block puzzle style. Sega supporters have had plenty of chances to experience this design over the years, and may not feel motivated to repurchase it again – but longtime Nintendo loyalists may have missed out. For them, it's a solid selection.

Columns still manages to entertain to some degree. In fact, it often verges on the hypnotic, and if you really let yourself get sucked in it can prove to be quite addictive. Sadly, you can't escape the fact that the genre has evolved over the years and these days games have to offer a little more to keep people interested.

The game is emulated flawlessly on the Wii. It still looks decent and has several catchy though somewhat serious-sounding musical themes to choose from, each matching the Ancient Greece-inspired theme. After all these years, Columns still stands up as a likable, playable puzzle game, but for 800 Wii points ($8) it's just not a good value for the money. Nevertheless, it's one of the first Tetris-style puzzle games for the Wii, and its simple, fairly addictive gameplay can be fun even if you never played the original version.
