AstroLad said:That's a good point. Although my desire to support indie development is counterbalanced by the fierce nationalism Europe not getting screwed on this game's pricing has ignited within me. U-S-A! U-S-A!
that seems to be the norm now in the user-content-enabled wii games. first elebits, then dewy, and now boom blox - they all seem to work smoothly with your wii FCs, no more, no less. not complaining here as it has been working ok for me.McBacon said:On the up side, I went "Share" and it listed my Wii friends, no need for an extra Boom Blox friend code
Lots of modes; Entertaining physics; Cute animals give it charm; Powerful puzzle builder
Unlockable single-player stuff might frustrate some players; Not all the modes are winners
There's also an ambitious and incredibly flexible building mode, although you won't get full access to it until you've played through a good deal of the single-player content.
Whether it's the Jenga mode, taking turns knocking gems off each others' destructible castle walls, or bringing down a tower together in the cooperative challenges, BOOM BLOX is one of the most gratifying jump-in-and-play games you can get on the Nintendo Wii. Don't knock it down 'til you've tried it.
You're challenged to disassemble, rearrange or completely destroy a series of Jenga-like block constructions by any means necessary -- with baseballs, with bowling balls, with lasers and bombs; the list goes on and on and on.
Jenga, for example, with its clumsy controls and stupid physics, didn't survive the transition to Wii.
Picture a giant Jenga-like puzzle, each block featuring a unique point value.
Mejilan said:Edit - Pacing's pretty off so far. Some of the early puzzles take me 4-10x to get the gold (though I can usually get the silver on the first try), and then the puzzle right after is simple and obvious, and the gold is secured in one go.
The Good: Engrossing realistic physics. Precise motion controls. Cheeky graphics.
The Bad: None. Really.
The Bottom Line: The best casual gaming has to offer and possibly the best Wii title yet.
What does this mean?Mejilan said:Left the Adventure mode (got all golds on one entire set of stages) for the explorer mode, and man, if nothing else, these simpler puzzles give you a grand appreciate that the physics in this game are NOT faked. Excellent stuff!
