I purchased Boom Blox last night because it looked like a simple fun game. I’ve been watching videos of gameplay for months and with Steven Spielberg creating it, I thought it must be fun. I’ll tell you this, it is. The story line for Adventure mode is very simple and something kids will enjoy a lot more than me. The true fun lies in the levels and not the in-between story line. The control with the Wii remote is very simple and easy and I’ve enjoyed the different types of play, whether it be strategically knocking down blocks, pulling blocks (think Jenga), or knocking away enemies. There is quite a bit of strategy involved in the game, on some levels more than I expected. I think this will be a great game for kids to think outside the box and strategically plan their moves. One thing I wish I could do, and maybe I’ve not figured if you can do this yet, but when you are exploding the blocks, I’d like to freeze the action so I can get a great angle to see the blox blowing away. I know you can switch angles while it’s happening with no problem, but a lot of times the action is almost done by the time I switch views. This is definitely one of those games where you can play a few levels when you have a few minutes of free time and then come back to it later. It’s a great casual game that makes you think critically of your every move. It’s worth picking up, or at least playing, if you’re looking for a solid Wii game.
