Boom Blox to topple again on Wii
Boom Blox presents an interesting challenge for Electronic Arts. On the one hand, the Wii puzzler touts the backing of legendary film director Steven Spielberg, who collaborated with EALA on the game's family-friendly, physics-oriented design. On the other hand, Spielberg's star power failed to attract crowds to the decently reviewed title, at least not in the way they would have were his name attached to a feature film.
Be that as it may, EA isn't willing to give up on the franchise just yet. Following online reports from November pointing to a new game in the series, EA Casual today announced that its Spielberg collaboration would continue with Boom Blox Bash Party. The game is expected to arrive for the Wii this spring in North America and Europe.
The first title is terrific. It's in my top 3 Wii titles to-date.
