Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 is a sequel to Sega’s popular action puzzle game that combines Tetris with the Japanese puzzle game Puyo Puyo. When it was first released, Puyo Puyo Tetris was widely loved by both critics and fans alike and was praised for seamlessly mixing the two puzzles games into one with excellent gameplay, varied game modes, and some incredibly fun multiplayer modes.
