Last year’s Boom Blox was a surprise hit and one of the best games yet for the WIi developed by a third party. Well, Spielberg and EA are back with the sequel and it’s more of the same only with some improvements which make it a much better game than before.
The game revolves around you knocking blocks over to achieve whatever goal objective is being given to you at the time. Each level is a one-off puzzle which you must complete in order to move to the next stage. You throw bombs, baseballs, pull on blocks, sling them into each other and now even fire cannonballs at them to bash them into oblivion, and it’s all done using gestures of the remote. This time though, there’s more variety in the stages.
There are levels where you must throw paintballs to match colours and make them disappear, levels set in space where blocks float off into the dark stuff, underwater levels and other themes including the jungle and one that kids love so much, pirates!
There are over 400 levels to play but because they’ve included a level editor and the ability to upload levels to EA’s servers, you can upload and download new levels from EA and other gamers very quickly and keep the experience going as long as you want.
There is also a co-op mode in there where two people can work together and a versus mode where you have to score more points than each other or play a more hardcore version of Jenga.
Boom Blox Bash Party is yet another successful family game for the Wii which all ages will love. It’s varied and even if you get stuck, the new Boom Bux currency system means you can unlock stages further into the game with money you’ve won for completing achievements earlier on. It gets an excellent 8 out of 10.
