Boom Blox Bash Party review

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.

Guess the proof of the pudding is in the eating so we’ll see if the game stands up or crashes in time for Christmas.
