Summary: This game is really fun, easy to learn and play, and is great when you're going to have friends over. It's a casual game, but fun for a hardcore gamer too. The only downside is the wiimote kinda glitches sometimes, and you have to re-point your wiimote at the TV. Minor frustration but it's not that bad. I recommend this game.
Summary: Consider Jenga with more towers, exploding blocks, modes to destroy in fewest throws of a ball or pull down without knocking off certain objects or negative point blocks. It is good to play with someone else too. There is one really boring mode where you throw a ball at blocks going by. I recommend skipping that and going straight to knocking stuff down or carefully pulling blocks. This is fun to play with my wife, especially to work together cooperatively.
Sleeper hit...one of the best "anyone can play' Wii games

Summary: Boom bloxs is Zany! The backgrounds are strange and the pace of the game is quick and filled with short vinyets. But, if you unlock all the game modes it turns boom blocks into one of the best party games I've ever played. Some of the 4 player simultaneous modes are super fun. In some modes its a 4 players vs the computer and in some its 4 against each other (and every game mode in between).
Summary: I bought the game for a 10 year old daughter. The person that played it the most initially was the 18 year old brother. I have now begun playing with my daughter and find the game entertaining and challenging because of the multiple levels and types of play. I would recommend the game for people of all ages.
Summary: fun with or without friends, my parents actually play it some with me consider it like a wii play type of game only it supports 4 players has a single player campaign, the very hard levels are VERY HARD, and can be a lot of fun. HOWEVER maybe it's just me but my wii remotes jump around in this game (i bought it new) just like my counsel. this makes the hard levels VERY HARD, and the VERY HARD levels impossible.
Summary: Boom Blox was nowhere near my radar when I bought my Wii last year. I'm a reader of Penny Arcade, and while I don't often use their recommendations to pick up games, the glowing review and concept of a physics-based game where you just threw stuff at blocks was enough to get me to put it in my GameFly queue. Broke it out at a party with friends, and I couldn't click the Keep It button fast enough. When I try to explain Boom Blox to people, it just doesn't go well.
Summary: Overall I was really impressed with this game. While the graphics are not it's strongest point, it's ability to suck hours of your life away while you throw imaginary balls, pull wooden pieces out of precariously piled stacks and destroy innocent woodland creatures in unparalleled. The sheer simplicity of the game is in many ways it's strongest suit.
Summary: This game is perhaps not the hugely perfect success that the hype would suggest, but it is really good, and I recommend it at the price I paid (about $35). Boom Blox makes good use of the Wii remote and you never feel like the controls were just slapped together. Paradoxically, the game feels like it has a high production value, even though the graphics are intentionally blocky and unimpressive.
