5.0 out of 5 stars Simply A Great Wii Game 6 Jun 2008
By C. Green TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
On the surface Boom Blox looks very simple; simple concept (throw balls and blow stuff up) & simple graphics. First appearances can be deceptive however, and this is the case with Boom Blox.

For a start whilst basic concept is very simple (and therefore also very accessible) the game designers (inc. Mr S. Spielberg) have done a huge amount with it. From one-player levels that can prove very challenging to multi-player competitions that play like an amped up version of Jenga, there is a huge breadth of varied gameplay available. Its also challenging and addictive enough to keep you entertained for hours. Its the sort of game where you and a friend decide to play one quick round and two hours later you're still there, trying to beat one another.

Whilst the graphics are 'simple' in the sense that they are unfussy, they do precisely what is required by the game. More importantly however, a huge amount of effort has been put into the gameplay itself. When you strike 'blox' they react and interact in an incredibly realistic way. Factors such as angle of throw, power, gravity and deflections are all taken into account. The physics feel real. Its not simply a case of throw ball and blow stuff up. Players have to think about things such as how different blocks will interact with each other when struck, where they will bounce to, and what opportunities they are leaving for their competitors to take advantage of. All this makes for an experience that requires a surprising amount of thouught and skill.

Boom Blox also makes the maximum advantage out of the Wii's unique interface. It is obvious that the game has been designed specifically for the Wii.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great game engine, mixed quality of levels. 25 May 2008
By NP VINE VOICE
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
The game engine for this is outstanding - watching the way large towers of blocks collapse etc. when you remove a vital support is hypnotic and astonishingly realistic for the Wii.

The gameplay is divided into different sections - the single player adventure mode (with a plot of sorts and cute cut-scenes between levels) is short, and has some very good levels, and some extremely boring ones that you won't want to go back and replay.

There are also explore levels (standalone puzzles) some of which are good fun and have a lot of replay value.

There are multiplayer (sadly not online) levels for 2-4 players, which are mostly excellent - probably the most enjoyable levels to play and the ones with the most replayability - I suspect a lot of people won't be replaying the adventure mode much, or some of the explore levels - but will be spending most of their time on just these mupliplayer levels.

And you can design your own levels and swap them via friend codes - which has the potential to be lots of fun - the level editor is very easy to use.

What pre-made content there is here is very mixed, some of the single player levels (especially a lot of the last quarter of the adventure mode) are frankly rubbish, but there are some great levels especially for multiplayer, and the game engine is superb, combine that with the abilty to make your own levels and it could be a lot of fun.

4.0 out of 5 stars Boom, and sometimes bust 22 July 2008
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Are we to assume from this game that when Stephen Spielberg wants to relax after a hard day's shooting, he likes to go back to his Hollywood palace and indulge himself in his purpose-built Jenga / Coconut Shy suite? 'Cos that's what this game is all about, and it's pretty good too.

The games are all about breaking down towers of blocks, some of which resemble Jenga towers, while others are made of different-shaped blocks which tumble down in a mousetrap-style manner when you set off the chain reaction: the smashed block releases the teeter-totter which throws the bomb in the air, which you smash to blow up the block above, which releases the gems... that sort of thing.

The best bits of the game involve aiming your crosshair using the remote as a pointer, then lobbing a virtual ball by flinging the remote towards the screen. No, DON'T let go of it, silly! This is a good example of gesture controls on the Wii remote, since the force of fling determines very accurately whether you gently lob the ball, or fast-bowl it like a particularly destructive cricketer. Watching the blocks tumble down is very satisfying and impressive, and the simplicity of the graphics is adequately compensated-for by the accuracy of the physics.

Sadly, not all levels involve throwing the ball. There are Jenga-like sections where you have to remove blocks by 'grabbing' them (click-and-drag with the remote). This is less satisfying since there is no option to 'flick' the blocks, as you would in a real Jenga game, to determine how much weight is on them, so what might look like a non-supporting block might turn out to be the keystone. There is not always enough visual detail of how deep the block goes into the stack to figure out, by sight, which block you should pull.

4.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding puzzle game 27 May 2008
By S. Lamb
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
To be honest at first i was unsure if i wanted to get his game.. However having picked it up and now had a few goes at it... I find that it is one of the best puzzle games going on the Wii...
it taxes the old grey matter and give you loads of enless fun.
I have to agree that it is a little over priced but on the up side it is packed with loads of fantastic levels and challanges.... The Co-Op party options is great fun and extremely tough on some of the later levels..

I would recommend this to all and everyone... it will keep up going for hours and hours..
