  1. It stumbles with certain game modes and its effort to appeal to kids with a poorly integrated story is ham-fisted at best, but Boom Blox is still a good game. Most of the hundreds of puzzles are fun to play alone, and it's also entertaining to taunt friends during their turn as they try to keep a tower from collapsing.

    There's one big problem that can’t be concealed by Boom Blox's triumphs: it's almost entirely devoid of challenge. [July 2008, p.124]
  3. Tries to cram WAY too many styles in, but multiplayer is tops.

    A great kids game. Teens and adults without children, however, may not find Boom Blox so entertaining. [Issue#23, p.72]

    Both me and my 8-year old (and all his friends!) really enjoy this game and have already spent many hours playing.

    This is a okay game. I dont know where the good ratings are coming from. The graphics/voices are too little kidish. The game gets somewhat This is a okay game. I dont know where the good ratings are coming from. The graphics/voices are too little kidish. The game gets somewhat boring after the midevil part of the game. This game is pretty good for the adults who still want to play NES. But if u like the wii like an addict, ur not gonna like this game. The music gets annoying, the charaters look like they're designed for a 4 year old. Full Review »
