    One of three games being produced by a partnership between EA and Steven Spielberg, Boom Blox is one of the most addictive and accessible games for the Wii we've ever played. But can this Jenga-like puzzle game appeal to all audiences, or just the casual market?

    Boom blox is awesome as a family game. I have two kids 4 and 6 and both have got the hang of the easy and intuitive controls, and they have really enjoyed the puzzles.

    What has been interesting has been seeing how they approached the puzzles. First started out aiming at any block, but I think as a game its providing skills in spacial awareness as after a while they have started rotating round the puzzle looking for more opportune blocks to hit.

    Ive started playing the single player and Ive enjoyed solving each of the puzzles some have been really easy but others have taken several attempts to get the gold.

    This is one of the best games on the Wii, it accomodates all ages especially younger players to be able to join in but has enough depth for hardened gamers to provide that just one more go feel.
