The unique Jenga like title has finally arrived, but will this new approach to "blox" pay off?

First Impressions: Whenever possible, we try to give our loyal website viewers the most video footage and most in depth unbiased reviews imaginable. Part of that development is our "initial impressions" where we offer up our first impressions of the title that we are playing.

This gives our website visitors more of clear understanding of what to first expect out of the game when they initially pop it into their consoles.

If you scroll to the bottom of the page in the Rent vs. Buy section of the review and do not see the "final impressions" assessment then it's safe to say that you are reading our initial impression of the game. Once the final impression is up, there will be no further video or review done to that particular title.

Final Impressions: The final impression is just that, our completed breakdown and overall thoughts on the game based off of our entire game playing time.

You can locate the final impressions assessment in the "Rent vs. Buy" section of the review (always located at the very end of all of our reviews). Here you will be able to read our final thoughts on the title and also see any potential grade changes that were made to the game as well (higher or lower). Should a grading change occur, it will be clearly noted with the previous grade, the new grade, and why the change occurred.

Although this approach is more time consuming and requires many more man hours, our entire goal has always been to provide the best and completely unbiased reviews possible and we feel that the inclusion of the Initial Impressions and Final Impressions sections will give you a better view of what to expect from a new game.

All that we ask in return is for you to continue to support Krakrabbit.com by visiting the site and letting others know about our cause. Together we can supply our fellow gamers with the most impartial information so they can make an informed decision on whether to buy or rent this particular title.

Steven Spielberg? With a game? Boom Blox is very much like Jenga, but virtually...and better. This first try by Steven Spielberg to create a game works tremendously well, and its risky creativity pays off in strides.

The main campaign of Boom Blox involves going from puzzle to puzzle using different means of removing the blocks in each scenario. The different means can vary from simply pulling a block out of a huge tower and hoping that the tower doesn't fall, to spraying the blocks with a hose, and even throwing a baseball at the tower.

Usually, the game will easily recognize the pulling and spraying, but the game will have quite a bit of difficulty reading how much force you put on your throw. This will often result in the game throwing the ball in the wrong spot, or just you failing the mission.

Volume: The best aspect of Boom Blox is the sheer amount of different, unique, enjoyable puzzles that seem to never end. There are upwards of 300+ different puzzles/missions to play through, and when you finish those, there is also a level creator to fill your time.

In the level creator you will have the ability to build your own unique levels using a considerable amount of tools. Also, after you build a level, you can play that same level with your family or friends.

Rent vs. Buy: Boom Blox is a highly enjoyable game, with a massive amount of different levels, and the level creator to keep you busy afterwards. Although the game is great, and the small quibbles such as the judgment of the game and the "suspect" camera are barely noticeable, this game isn't for everyone.

If you are more prone to action games, then this might be good just for your family or the kids, but if you like a good family game that's also fun (unlike most family friendly games) then game away.
