I couldn’t find Wii Fit anywhere this weekend. And even Mario Kart seemed to be sold out at most places so I took a punt and bought Boom Blox for the Wii instead.
Net result. A very sore arm and many hours wasted.
It’s a brilliant game. The learning curve is perfect. The balance of skill/strategy/luck is great. And it uses the Wii controllers fantastically well. And it’s probably not something I’ll ever get round to doing (I don’t really have the time) but the ability to construct and share your own levels is really nice.
Not sure exactly what Steven Spielberg had to do with it. But it is kind of like the E.T. of gaming; I can’t think of anyone who wouldn’t like it at least a little bit.
