Designed to make the most of the innovative control systems on the Wii and DS, the game offers unpredictable, quick- paced, tactical play that combines suspense and risk-taking, where mounting anticipation comes to a crashing climax. Players of the Wii version can get physical with the Wii Remote and Nunchuk controllers as they battle to keep the Jenga tower from falling, while on the DS the touch screen provides equally intuitive control of the fast-paced action. Players experience sophisticated physics, and a multitude of game-play options (single and multiplayer). The game contains all the fun, intensity and challenge of the original boxed game with a wealth of exciting new enhancements, power-ups and twists that are possible only in the videogame world.

  1. An interesting novelty, Jenga World Tour isn’t the casual market-appeasing game it needs to be to succeed. While oddball gamers like myself may find temporary amusement, the rest of the world will likely stick to the real Jenga game.

    Why strain your eyes on a smaller version of the stack when you can just clear some space off the kitchen table and play the real thing?
  3. There is absolutely no reason to purchase Jenga World Tour over a copy of the physical game. The latter is cheaper, less painful on your eyes, and significantly more fun.
  4. The developers of Jenga World Tour have done pretty much all they can to make the game reach its full potential - it's just that it never had much to work with. Single cartridge multiplayer would have helped a great deal, but even that wouldn't have lifted it into the average category.
  5. This game gets a low score because there is no point to it.
  6. Jenga is here just to fill the gap, with no attention to quality whatsoever, only to make a quick buck at the expense of distracted fans.
  7. There's only one word for this experience: wooden. [Feb 2008, p.51]
