Summary: If action has a name, it has to be Steven Spielberg. The auteur has dipped his creative fingers into video games and if Boom Blox is any indicator, good things are coming, Part Jenga, part dominoes and part puzzle, Boom Blox reminds me of a carnival game where you toss a baseball to knock over a stack of wooden blocks. Exclusive to Nintendo Wii, the game makes full use of the Wii remote that doubles as a baseball.
Summary: If you have four Wii controllers, you should have this and the original Boom Blox. It makes a great party game, sometimes I've played with friends for hours, and been sore for days later. I never regret it, though. A physics-based puzzle/competition game, it's got a lot to do. For those who played the first one, I think this game doesn't change too much, simply improving on ideas.
Summary: A great game and a good sequel to the original Boom Blox. The second in the Boom Blox series of games, this adds some game play modes that were missing in the original game, while keeping and improving in some ways what was best. This isn't the best single player game, but get together with a group of friends and you'll have a blast. With certain groups of friends, this is all we ever do! The physics are realistic, without getting in the way of the gameplay.
Summary: Blocks set up, you must knock them down. The single player puzzles can be very challenging. This is a great, "Pick up and play" game and I think everyone who has a Wii should have this in thier party collection. I have a friend who argues, "There's no point, it's stupid." It's stupid fun. It is the best kind of game. The ability to create your own levels and download more makes for phenomenal replayability.
Summary: This sequel is very similar to its predecessor, "Boom Blox." If you liked the original, you will like this as well. Although you probably don't need to own both. For those unfamiliar with the game, there are several different level types. "Throwing" games involve throwing a tennis or bowling ball at a Jenga tower like stack of blocks and trying to knock them down. "Grabbing" games are somewhat similar to traditional Jenga. "Shooting" games involve firing at targets.
Summary: Boom Blox Bash Party is a very entertaining game to play...in a group! The repetition of the game diminishes the replay value (even though you can create new maps to play with). While power-ups and new weapons of "blox" destruction try to vary the gameplay, every game mode feels VERY similar. However, this is not to say that the formula for game play isn't a good mix.
Summary: My family and I love this game! I highly recommend this game for families with younger children (even my 3 yr old can play). There are lots of different ways to play the game. I love the single play and the co-op play. You work together with your team instead of it being a competition. The characters in the game are so cute, and they are funny to watch (you'll see what I mean). Okay, here comes the BUT...this game has some weird programming errors.
