Straight from the mind of the genius behind some of hollywood’s best films. Steven Speilberg came up with the idea of Boom Blox when he realized he wanted to spend more time with him family and play video games with them. He wanted to bring families together, did he accomplish his mission? or did he just end up tearing families apart? Let’s find out.

Boom Blox is a puzzle game in which you have several different modes to play with. You can throw balls at towers, pull blocks out much like Jenga, make bombs explode, any mode that you could perhaps think of that requires blocks, this game does it.


Boom Blox in essence doesn’t have great graphics at all. It’s a relatively simple looking game with square characters. However, this does not hinder the game at all, since graphics really aren’t the point of this game. This game has an incredible physics engine, and that’s all we care about. The physics engine works perfectly.


The gameplay is extremely simple in the sense that anybody can pick up and play this game. However this does not mean in any sense that it’s bad. It has some of the best gameplay I’ve seen on the wii yet. It’s endlessly fun, and really, it’s fun that hardcore gamers, as well as casual gamers could enjoy.


Really, in this aspect, there really isn’t much to speak of. It has decent music, but really, nothing memorable. The music is somewhat childish, however it fits with the atmosphere of the rest of the game.


You can have up to 4 players playing this game at once. The multiplayer is endlessly fun, and everyone in my house is addicted and absolutely loves this game. There is also the added bonus of being able to create levels and send them to your friends via Wifi. You can also download your friends levels.

In Conclusion:

This is a game that could be off putting to the hardcore gamer by it’s “kiddy” graphics, but once into the game, I guarantee everyone will become addicted to this game.

It gets a 5 out of 5.
