        This guy handed me a demo down at xscape Milton Keynes promoting this new Boom Blox game, didn't think much about it as I'd not heard any hype what so ever let alone heard of the game. We got home and popped it in the Wii to play the demo which only actually has about 3 or 4 games on but what can I say me and the wife were hooked spent the next two hours trying to out play each other and we are now looking forward to it's release date when we'll snap up the full version from the shelf.
        Loads of fun, action, excitement, is coming our way with this game plenty of party nights in... The 4 player mode looks like it might cause some rumbles.

         Good Fun (most of the time)

        On the surface this is Jenga, with some cartoon story to move proceedings along. However, only about 1/5th of the game is directly like Jenga; most of the time you're shooting or making blocks explode, helping characters along paths, or preventing other characters destroying your towers, taking your gems or killing your friends. As for the characters themselves, I found them rather cute - a lot has been said about the annoying names and awful script, but it's not really that distracting. The only problem I had with the game is that sometimes the aiming will stick, requiring a shake of the controller and a jab of the buttons - which can prove annoying, especially during a timed level.

         One of the Best Puzzle Games Available

        Boom Blox is an Nintendo Wii exclusive release, and was developed in association with famous director Steven Spielberg. The game supports between one and four players, and the genre the game fits into is 'Puzzle'.

        The main concept, or aim of the game is to destroy blocks, or 'blox' as they may be called by the games creators, in otherwords make the blox go boom! Now looking at this idea on paper, it seemed that the game may get old pretty fast and may get boring. But that is where the factor of the Nintendo Wii Hardware comes out. Everything is controlled by the Wii Remote, and is totally interactive. Whether you are throwing a ball, or picking up the blocks themselves, everything can be done with the remote. This control system is easy to quickly pick up, especially if you are a regular player of the Wii, or even a brand new gamer. All of the blocks have their own characteristics too, some blow up for example, and some will simply disappear. Some of the blocks will also react with other blocks, which then in turn gets rid of even more blocks.

        There are three modes on the game, they are known as party mode, play mode and create mode. The play mode is mainly for fans of single player, as it is here where you are presented with hundreds of different challenges, all separated into seperate catergories, for you to puzzle over. The play mode is essentially the multiplayer mode of the game, and thus one of the most important. It is here that you can get all of your friends around to play with, and you can play both against each other or together. This keeps things fresh and increases playability, whilst also bringing out your competitive nature!

        The final mode is perhaps the most interesting, and that goes by the name of the "Create" mode. It is here that you can get those creative juices flowing, and actually create your own levels. Whilst this is not only fun, it does the all important thing of increasing the playability of your game further, and nothing can beat the satisfaction of watching your friends playing a level you have created!

        Boom Blox on the whole is a very enjoyable game, even though at first I felt it would be better suited to the younger generation. It is especially enjoyable if you have a lot of friends round and are playing the game with them, as is the case with the majority of games on the Nintendo Wii. It is also a good way to relieve those creative juices!! In short, if you have no friends then don't bother with this game, but if like most people you do, then buy this game!

         Extremely impressed - Highly recommended

        Not usually into puzzle games. Got this as for some reason i thought it was wi-fi compatible, and multi-player with friends would be great fun.

        Was initially dissapointed when i saw it wasn't upon opening. But after what was supposed to be a quick go, that turned into a few hours. I was over-joyed.

        A highly enjoyable game. Simple, yet mega-addictive. Controls feel good, especially using the "grab and pull" function. Expect a sore arm from the throwing though. But everytime that happens, i just switch to some "grab and pull", or later unlockable levels, using things such a "water hose" and "laser", which require, just a point and click.

        Havn't taken this gane out of the Wii since it got here a week ago. Brawl, Mario Kart, BW2 have all been side-lined. By this, in modern terms, simple, yet brilliantly visualised, and implemented game. So much fun, you won't want to put it down.

        Gets 5 *'s from me. Buy it now!

        Sleeper hit of the year so far. A game to keep you glued to the wiimote and a fantastic party game.

        There's something wonderfully theraputic in watching a large construction of blox reduced to ground level in seconds!

        However, this is marred by some horrendous slowdown which seems odd in a title that is so graphically sedate. This appears to be isolated to the multiplayer option and is not a deal breaker in any way.

        Highly recommended.
