For those of you that never played Boom Blox, here's the quick rundown. Boom Blox is a physics action-puzzler. It is kind of like Jenga, but you use the Wii remote pointer to throw bowling balls, throw baseballs, launch paint balls, shoot cannons, fire lasers, grab, grip, and throw items, and use a slingshot to either destroy (or sometimes build) your way through puzzles. This is the type of game the Wii was designed for with deep and imaginative level designs and dozens of ways to interact with the world laid down before you.
The new version has a lot of improvements over the last one.
+++ Most multi-player modes only require one remote, which is very nice if you don't have a full set of controllers.
+++ A ridiculous number of levels. Best of all, they are well designed levels. So far, based the nearly 100 or so that I've played, I can say the vast majority are very enjoyable and none of them have been bad. Getting bronze on most levels is pretty easy, but silver and gold medals can be challenging, and a few still have me scratching my head wonder how I'm supposed to get that perfect score that will bump me from a high Silver score to that coveted gold medal.Read more ›
Some of my favorite new features about this game are the environments, where in the first game it was basically "land based". This game takes you underwater and into space, giving the levels a whole new dynamic. There are also many new characters who are just as adorable as the first. The multiplayer mode has been expanded but I have yet to try it (the game is brand new after all). Maybe I will update later after I've given the multiplayer some more time... but I hear it's great.
Another major plus for this game is that it has a great starting price at $40 or less. I've never been big on paying $50 or more for games, so I'm glad they are making QUALITY games at $40 or less. Don't pass up this great game that is fun for hours or just a few minutes at a time.

-It doesn't really do a whole lot of things the first game didn't already perfect. On the other hand, it's hard to say if this is such a bad thing because there's still a lot of variety and it doesn't repeat any puzzles from the first game, but some might still wish they'd added a bit more to it
The original Boom Blox was quite an amazing game. It just sort of dropped in there from EA and Steven Spielberg. Yet to the enjoyment of many gamers it was a great game that was simple to pick up, addictive and huge. There was so much to do within the game that no one could imagine putting it down for a while. Boom Blox Bash Party is pretty much the same game. It doesn't add a whole lot, but then again, it doesn't really have to. You're more or less getting an expansion of the first game. There are new puzzles and new challenges. It'll feel fresh if it's the first time you've played Boom Blox, but for those who played the first one, they need to know that they're getting an expansion and not really getting a lot of new things.
Much like the first game, it's easy to pick up and play. There are still a ton of modes to enjoy here, and a ton of levels to do. Boom Blox Bash Party will keep you busy for a few days. You'll also be surprised to find that it can, and often is, quite challenging. Trying to figure out how to do specific puzzles is actually a treat and can test your abilities. So much so that once you complete a level, you'll probably go back to see if you can do a better job.Read more ›
I of course pre-ordered this one, and it's good.
1) I, like another reviewer, think they really could have left some of the content from the first game (cannon, side-by-side bashing!) in the game
2) I think the puzzles are not as well thought out this time. You'll be in a chemical blox section, with tons of special blox all over the place. Using a slingshot for instance (that's cool, right?) But half the time, the easiest answer is not to do something cool or interesting in order to get a chemical explosion.... You can simply just grab the biggest block and let it rip. So I think some of the cleverness of the original was lost, because they tried to go too over the top with the design.
It just doesn't typically feel as "rube-goldberg" like as the first one did....Random pulling, throwing or whatever seems to work just as often, and often works better than trying to find an elegant solution. The first Boom Blox had its weaknesses too (the shooter games, for sure) but there were some really clever puzzles in there.
Some things are good, the money thing is hokey, but the ability to skip a very tough level is great. I still have 2 puzzles on the original I can't get, blocking 2 other puzzles. I guess I'll never know!
I've downloaded a few puzzles, with definitely mixed review. That could be the one redeeming feature, if there grows up to be a cottage community that creates some really great levels, because frankly I think the ones that came with the game are a little lacking.
Overally, buy it, and fast, it's great fun, but I'd strongly consider the first one as well for its simpler yet in my mind more elegant puzzles.
