Excerpt: I am an odd breed of gamer, that will happily get on his late night XBox Live soapbox, berating the gaming industry for a lack of originality and risk taking, whilst letting cracking titles like this, N+, Portal and many more pass me by. And what for? Usually for another formulaic and forgettable FPS, that does nothing more than most other titles of its type.
Excerpt: Boom Blox is another reader requested review. If you read my online preview then you know Steven Spielberg and Electronic Arts (EA) teamed up to create this Wii game. The whole point of Boom Blox is to knock all the blocks down. This is done via baseballs, bowling balls, exploding bombs, coconuts, and other such things that can be thrown. These blocks need to be knocked over in the fewest throws possible. You knew there had to be a catch right?
Excerpt: EA (Electronic Arts) has been in the video game industry long enough to know when they have a good thing going. Boom Blox Bash Party is a sequel to the original Boom Blox, and improves upon it in almost every single way. Certain blocks need to be freed from their high perches. The player throws or slings various items (bowling ball, baseballs, etc.) at the structures.
Excerpt: The concept powering Electronic Arts' Boom Blox, a Wii-exclusive puzzle game guided by Hollywood director Steven Spielberg, couldn't be more fun and family friendly. You're challenged to disassemble, rearrange or completely destroy a series of Jenga-like block constructions by any means necessary with objects like baseballs, bowling balls, lasers, and bombs. You can throw, shoot and even grab the blocks when applicable.

Excerpt: When the collaboration between gaming juggernaut EA and renowned film director Steven Spielberg was announced, people were no doubt expecting something rather cinematic, and certainly not a very gamey puzzle game, of which Boom Blox just so happens to be. As the name so not eloquently suggests, Boom Blox is about blowing blocks (or should that be blox) up, by tossing things at them, but it’s also about pushing and pulling, so it’s not just booming you‘ll be doing.
Excerpt: Boom Blox was a surprise package, coming from the combined talents of Steven Spielberg and EA. With user-generated content being a hot topic right now, this sequel includes the ability to create and download levels as well as play over 400 puzzles in a variety of game styles. So how does it play? The cute animals and overall look of the game have changed very little from the original, but the explorable theme park environment is nicely done.
Excerpt: Boom Blox Bash Party for the Nintendo Wii is an excellent sequel that improves on the brilliant original in every way. It features superb controls that really take advantage of the strengths of the Wii Remote and gameplay that manages to continually challenge and captivate players of all skill levels and tastes. The audio/visual presentation is fantastic and representative of the high level of effort that has gone into the development of the entire package.
