  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.

    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. This is just a poor title, taking advantage of a well-recognized Jenga license, neither doing justice to the original game nor supplementing it with features that might make the Wii video game version fun, even if it were still a bad simulation.
  5. The very concept of Jenga tilts towards mediocrity, but this game sends it collapsing into utter awfulness.
  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. Just stay away, you will be a happier person overall, and laugh at those who have not heeded the warnings and decided to spend $30 on this travesty of a game.
  8. Horrid AI, broken physics, and terrible game design conspire to topple Jenga World Tour.
  9. Whatever strange, mirror universe insanity might lead you to play a video game version of Jenga rather than the real thing, you are unlikely to advance past the first few games.
  10. The Tour stages are dreadful, causing unnecessary distractions and slowdown. Skip this horrible World Tour and play the real thing.

    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.

    The computer A.I. is horrible, the physics in the game cause slowdown, the control is sluggish due to a rubber band design for grabbing blocks, and we can' t believe we're even listing off reasons not to buy a game based off a $10 box of blocks.
  13. Careful play simply is not rewarded because the physics of the game are grossly inconsistent.
  14. Misery may love company, but your company will hate you for inflicting this game upon them.

    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.

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! Full Review »

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