    Can anyone recommend some good puzzle games, such as Tetris, only fresher? This is specifically for Xbox, PS2 or GC.

    I tried Zoocube for the GC, I thought it was OK, certainly original, but it didn't hook me.

    I've heard both good and bad regarding Super-Bust-A-Move2.

    I'd even consider Tetris Worlds, but it doesn't seem to get good reviews.

    Anything I'm missing out on?

    I'd like to know, too - I'm considering finally breaking down and getting an Xbox in a week or so (as much due to my old DVD player driving me completely bonkers when playing certain discs), but want to make sure that there's more available than games that you need to invest time in.

    Honestly, for $50 bucks or less, I would get a N64 and get Tetrisphere. Easily the best and most fun puzzle game that I've ever played. My wife and I still break that one out from time to time.

    Lately, there really hasn't been all that much for puzzle games, which is just sad.

    IMO, you can't go wrong with Bust-A-Move in two player mode, no matter what the console.

    Tetrisphere for N64.
    Pokemon Puzzle League for N64
    Super Puzzle Fighter Turbo for PSOne
    Any of the Bust a Move games
    Sonic Mega Collection for Gcube, since it has RObotniks bean machine on it
    Kirby's Avalanche for SNES, which is basically bean machine

    I'll take a closer look at SBAM. For the last few years, I've gotten a good dose of puzzle games on my Handspring Visor, but I'd like to get a good console game.

    Capcom's One Piece Mansion for the PlayStation. One of the best puzzle games out there.

    And easily the best puzzle game out there:

    Devil Dice for the PlayStation.

    Devil Dice - A game you can play with a controller in one hand and a beer in the other.

    I don't even play puzzle games (besides Tetris), but any game you can play and drink beer at the same time, I'm all over that.

    The PS1 had a plethora of good puzzle games that should not be overlooked.

    such as

    Puzzle Fighter !
