Games Review: Boom Blox: Bash Party
Wii, EA, £29.99
Friday 05 June 2009
Steven Spielberg's first foray into the world of video-games, Boom Blox,was a physicsmeets- puzzles-meets- Jenga cocktail. Its follow up, Bash Party, has the same heady mix of smashing fun that sees gamers using their wiles – and various missiles – to dislodge blocks, or a steady hand to extract a chosen few from a teetering pile. What’s new is that there is a levelbuilding feature, which also allows creative types to show off their work to other gamers online. Throw in some neat new effects, action that will appeal to all kinds of players and you have yourself a blockbuster.
