Entertaining for single or multiplayer,
This review is from: Boom Blox - Nintendo Wii (Video Game)
I got this game because I was looking for one that would be equally fun when playing alone or with guests. This game has fit the bill and then some.
I will admit when I originally picked up this game I was skeptical of how fun it would be. Described as a 'puzzle/action game' it looked a bit basic in terms of skill level and complexity. I also worried that it would be something more enteraining for families with young children than twentysomethings. Happily this game proved me wrong and not only have my boyfriend and I gone through almost all the game play available, his mother also loved it so much she got her own copy.
There are many positives about the game. The first is that it is addictively fun. We have played it with many different crowds and have yet to find someone who doesn't enjoy the game. Most are skeptical at first, but then addicted. It is an especially good game for newbies to the Wii because the game play is very easy to master and intuitive. Because of this less time is spent mastering the remote and more on enjoying the game. It also takes full advantage of the movement and possibilities of the Wii remote so it feels very different than playing a game on another system.
I also appreciated the variety of activities between a single game. Even though they are all different adapations of Jenga like games they are different enough to keep me entertained for hours. Each game felt different enough that even when I had made it through most of the levels the subsequent ones never felt repetitive or boring. There is even an in-game editor so you can build levels on your own, leading to seemingly endless gameplay.
Even though I can usually find some flaw with every video game I've purchased this was not the case with this game. If anything, I'm wishing it came with more levels so I could play longer.
Overall this is a great game that I would recommend whether you are into single or multiplayer gameplay. It is a particularly good game if you are new to the Wii system and want something you can master and enjoy quickly. It is easily up there with Mario Kart Wii with Wii Wheel and Super Mario Galaxy.
