    It’s fun, it’s versatile (I’ve found it to be a hit with gamers and non-gamers), and it offers more bang for your buck (ha!) than just about anything else on Wii right now. It’s the best kind of sequel – one that truly “gets” what was cool about its forebear, cuts the fat and elevates every cool feature to the next logical step. Superb.
  2. Boom Blox: Bash Party takes what was good (and there was a lot of it) on first Boom Blox and builds on it. An excellent action-puzzler. [June 2009]
  3. This is more or less everything we wanted from a Boom Blox sequel and can't recommend it enough.

    Boom Blox Bash Party is the definition of how to take a great game and make it even better.
  5. The list of must-have Wii games with appeal for both the casual and core player is exceedingly short. To make the cut, a game must be immediately approachable and easy to understand, but it must also offer challenge and depth to those who seek them. Boom Blox Bash Party is atop that list.
  6. More of the same, but in the best way possible.

    Bash Party may become repetitive for some over time, but it does prove to be a far better package overall, offering a wealth of gameplay for those that get hooked by the formula.

    One of the funnest games of all time. Though having no point but to smash random blocks and score the most points out of everyone, The game just gets better and better. I love it.

    This game is great and a must own for anyone who enjoyed the first game. It has a deeper multiplayer and single player mode, and the ability to download new levels everyday really makes the game have unbelievable replay value. Expand

    The single-player is sub-par at best, but the multiplayer is better than ever, delivering more of the same types of levels from the previous games in addition to several new modes of play... But if you're at all the creative type, the level editor is where Bash Party really shines. Not only does it provide you with lots of tools to build your own levels, but unlike the first game, you can actually play your creations with your friends. Expand

    This should be held up as a model sequel. It builds on all the strengths of the previous installment, and adds more to do and see. I love the creator engine they've got in here; if you're creative, you can make some pretty wild stuff. Tons of fun. Expand

    This is one multi-player experience not to be missed - except if you take yourself too seriously. It's fun, it's exhausting and it's as much fun to watch others play as it is to play yourself. Walking down the red carpet, stopping occasionally to pose for the press, is my favorite of the mini games. Expand

    What are all the good ratings about? I found it boring.

    Tedious and extremely repetitive take on "Crush the Castle," which itself is pretty tedious. Gameplay attempts variety, and while it gets different flavors, it's all still ice cream. Really bad ice cream with drawn-out physics. More than "Crush the Castle," I think this game could be compared to a mini-game in WW:Smooth Moves, except instead of hundreds of entirely new novel concepts and fun, it's just a slightly different take on the same mini-game over and over and over.
