What parents need to know

Positive messages

This game creates a great environment in which to test theories about how to solve puzzles and encourages cooperative play.

Violence & scariness

Cartoon violence resulting from throwing balls and bombs at the blocks and the block characters (chickens, dogs, cows, etc). No one is ever seriously injured, and characters who are knocked over, simply appear with a ring of stars over their head until the right themselves.

Not applicable

This is the second game in the Boom Blox series of games.

Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this is a collection of puzzles based on the concept of destroying block structures. But these puzzles are so much more than merely knocking down block towers; they require players to use logic, experimentation, and planning to be successful. The game is great for families because there is both competitive and cooperative play. You can create your own puzzles to share with friends over the Internet, and if you are lucky, your creation might be selected to be shared with others on Electronic Arts' server. These uploaded puzzles are vetted by Electronic Arts before shared.

What's it about?

If you missed last year's Boom Blox, one of the best family games on the Wii, you have another shot at this fabulous license with BOOM BLOX BASH PARTY. This is a set of over 400 puzzles all built around the concept of knocking down block structures. The fun and the variation come from the rules imposed on how you solve the puzzles, and the tools you are given to do the destruction. You can explore the puzzles alone, or with friends in either a cooperative or competitive mode. And you can even build your own puzzles to share with friends and others over the internet. Plus you can download the puzzles of others to play and then rate.

Is it any good?


Boom Blox Bash Party is a great game for all ages. The puzzles vary greatly from throwing balls to using a slingshot to destruct block towers. Some of the structures are floating in space with no gravity, whereas others are underwater or on land. Some even look like a miniature golf course where you sling pucks across a path to ricochet off other blocks and eventually make it to the flag pole hole.

For families with little kids, there's a cooperative mode which allows a parent and a child to work together to solve the puzzles, each using his/her own Wii remote. For teens or families who like a little competition in their gameplay, there is a robust competitive mode which uses up to four controllers. Plus, this game's creation mode is easy to master so that you can build puzzles of your own to share with others. And if creating is not your thing, you can keep exploring additional puzzles by downloading new ones created by others and vetted by Electronic Arts (who decides which ones to post for sharing).

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about what makes a sequel to a prominent media product good? How important is it to keep the familiar versus adding new elements? Did you know that Steven Spielberg help to create this video game? Was it a factor in your wanting to play it?

This game is fun and exiting. This a little hard for some people. All it takes is a remote and an arm. All you do is swing a remote and try and hit the blocks.
