Steven Spillberg New Game!! Boom Blox

Steven Spielberg Make his first game!! If you like his film you will like this game, too!!

BOOM BLOX may not be the best Wii game, depending on your proclivities, but it's definitely the best use of the Wii yet. It's immensely accessible, wonderfully tactile, and stands as one of the best treatments of gaming in a 3D space.

A physics-based puzzle game at its core, Boom Blox employs dozens of different variants on box-stacking, target-smacking, and tower-dismantling, executed via several hundred inspired setups. It adds up to an impressive variety in terms of the goals, the actions required to complete them, the properties of the blocks themselves, and the sheer volume of levels.
And whether you're tossing balls to knock over point blocks, carefully sliding individual pieces out from a larger stack or setting off elaborate the motion controls are subtle, responsive, and impeccably precise. The angle of each throw is dictated by where you place the cursor after positioning the camera, and the speed of your throw is reflected quite accurately using the Wii Remote's accelerometer (generally falling into one of three speeds). Boom Blox would be a tough sell with the imprecise motion controls that many Wii games fall victim to, but it so squarely nails every movement that you can forget about the controls and simply enjoy the experience.

Boom Blox is simply a laundry list of great features and options wrapped around an incredibly fun, expertly designed, and well-tuned puzzle game.
