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. If you really want some Jenga action, you'll be far better off buying the classic block game and make the loser reset the tower.
  2. The Wii Remote hasn't been used well here and it's trickier than playing it for real. And it's Jenga - do we really need this? [Apr 2008, p.88]
  3. “Broken” is the only fitting adjective here.
  4. Horrid AI, broken physics, and terrible game design conspire to topple Jenga World Tour.
  5. Buy the classic wooden blocks and spend the change on nachos and a beverage. Not only will you shell out half the money you'd otherwise waste on Jenga: World Tour but you will still have a soul afterwards and you might actually have a good time.
  6. The Tour stages are dreadful, causing unnecessary distractions and slowdown. Skip this horrible World Tour and play the real thing.
  7. Misery may love company, but your company will hate you for inflicting this game upon them.

    Bad! Useless! Concept doesn't work at all! Nothing good to say about it.

I bet it sells a million, because Moms and Dads everywhere think the Wii is the Second Coming of Christ. What the Wii really is, though, is a very underpowered last-gen system hiding behind a gimmick that is getting old very, very fast, and Jenga is just moving this process forward that much faster. Actually, keep churning out this garbage for the Wii, guys... it keeps my 360 and PS3 relatively crap-free! Thanks! Expand

    Remember that old 80's game fad where we stack the wooden blocks into a tower, we pull them out, and whoever makes the tower collapseRemember that old 80's game fad where we stack the wooden blocks into a tower, we pull them out, and whoever makes the tower collapse loses? Hear the crickets? Yeah, 'cause neither do I. Guess what? They made a VIDEO GAME of it. For the Wii!

    This game is an atrocious, useless, boring piece of *YOU CAN'T SAY THAT ON METACRITIC*. That's pretty much it.

    (In case you're wondering, I did post the *YOU CAN'T SAY THAT ON METACRITIC* thing.
