Boom boom boom

Man, what a week (or even month) to play games!

No sooner does Grand Theft Auto IV come out then we get Wii Fit and now Boom Blox.

All are extremely fun and an essential part of your games collection (except GTAIV if you're a kid). So, with all these options and extremely limited time, I've been mostly playing Wii Fit and Boom Blox. These are both great games to tackle if you only have a few minutes of gaming time available.

So, what makes Boom Blox so great? Here's a few things:
  1. The game play is simple enough for anyone to grasp (you throw balls at piles of blocks, or pull blocks out of piles of blocks like Jenga).
  2. Each level is short but they get progressively trickier without overwhelming you.
  3. The controls are awesome (this game is made for the Wii).
  4. It's got a cute adventure mode with cute characters.
  5. It rewards you a lot so you always feel like you're achieving something.
  6. It has a built in level editor so you can make and share you own levels.
Here's hoping to seeing more games that embrace the Wii and take advantage of what it has to offer. Now, I just have to find more time so I can play GTAIV too!
