  • Excerpt: It's hard to dish out criticism to a title that shouts "Hopeless!" even before it's freed from the box. With Atari's latest disaster on the Wii (lest we forget Godzilla Unleashed), they've decided to take the game Jenga and construct a world tour competition that no one in their right mind would want to attend. So let's start at the beginning and see what could have possibly led developers to think that this was a good idea. First off, we'll talk about locations.

  • Excerpt: Motion controls have opened the door to new levels of interactivity in videogames. At the cusp of this innovation, it’s easy to think of the myriad possibilities – sword fighting, gunplay, molesting underage anime characters.

Jenga World Tour Review

GameSpot
11 December 2007
  • Excerpt: The real game of Jenga is a love/hate kind of thing. The actual act of playing this game of block removal and stacking is pretty fun, but goodness knows it's a pain to stack those things up again after the tower comes tumbling down. Jenga World Tour attempts to remedy that admittedly small annoyance by bringing the game of Jenga to the Wii. No cumbersome blocks to stack here; all you have to do is slide out and stack virtual blocks using the Wii Remote.
  • Pros: The graphics and audio aren't awful, There's at least a decent number of rule variants to be had
  • Cons: Blocks like to get stuck inside the stack and refuse to come out, Wii Remote controls are imprecise and annoying, All the specialized "world tour" stages are either slightly irritating or aggressively terrible, AI is either a lightning-quick genius or completely moronic, depending on the scenario, Costs twice as much as real Jenga

  • Excerpt: To make this review seem a little more realistic, the idea was to tell you how Jenga plays after four pints of Guinness - but the security guard wouldn't let us in the building when we tried that. And it was probably a good thing, too: you'll need all your faculties about you to stand a chance with it. Strangely it's much tougher playing this sober on the Wii than it is in Scruffy Murphy's on a Friday night.

  • Summary: Wenn ein Wii-Spiel zu seiner Markteinführung an die 50 Euro kostet, dann darf man schon eine hohe spielerische oder zumindest optische Qualität erwarten. Leider entpuppt sich „Jenga: World Tour“ als reines Desaster. Abgesehen von der ungenauen Steuerung, miesen Soundeffekten und einem monotonen sowie verkorksten Gameplay bietet das Spiel eigentlich nichts.
  • Cons: Eigentlich immer das Gleiche, Überlegene KI, Katastrophale Steuerung, Miese Grafik

  • Excerpt: Jenga, le jeu de société où il faut absolument garder son calme et surtout ne pas trembler, arrive en jeu vidéo. Concentration et habilité sont de rigueur comme dans le jeu de plateau original : les joueurs se doivent de retirer, à tour de rôle et à l'aide de la Wiimote, un morceau d'une...

  • Excerpt: Jenga ist ein Geschicklichkeitsspiel, das im Jahre 1989 im Handel erschienen ist. Der Erfolg des Spiels war riesengroß, so dass unterschiedliche Versionen veröffentlicht wurden. Es gibt eine Casino-Version oder sogar eine Extreme-Version, in der die Steine verschiedene Formen besitzen. Atari hat sich daraufhin entschlossen, zu diesem Spiel eine Versoftung für Wii zu entwickeln. Ob dies gelungen ist, erfahrt ihr im folgenden Test.

  • Excerpt: Jenga er det engelske navn for det spil, som de fleste danskere nok bedst kender som “Klodsmajor”. Det er jo helt oplagt, at lave en Nintendo Wii version af netop det klassiske Klodsmajor da… altså… nej det er dybest set slet ikke oplagt og spillet oser da også langt væk af at være en fuser.
