  1. Compared with prominent puzzlers on other platforms, Balloon Pop might seem a bit outdated, slightly repetitive, and lacking in unique charm. But until the Wii's software library offers better options for the price, it's a decent choice for genre dabblers and those seeking a simple diversion.

    It isn't hard on the eyes or ears, but it lacks any sort of challenge (apart from wrestling with the controls).

    I really enjoy puzzles games, this one however lacked most anything. I will play on occasion and can see once you get past the boring levels there might be something more interesting, but it's not very engaging. Expand
