The central concept of this game is simplicity: you throw a ball at a pile of bricks and they fall down. But it is SO difficult on so many levels that it is far more entertaining and engaging than you could possibly think. The physics involved can be equally frustrating and enthralling, and therein lies the high replayability of the game: small changes in positioning your throw can lead to huge differences in how the bricks fall. It is easy to get lost in the game as it moves quickly and there is unbelievably lots of diversity in the levels and in the blocks. Just because one angle of attack works on one level does not mean it will work the same on the next. And for multiplayer it is a joy, as you can watch your laboriously setup work exploited by your opponent (or even watch them destroy an entire level in a lucky toss that you'll try to duplicate for the next few weeks!). The time of Wii-dominance is clearly over, and much has been made of how it lost the console battle for hardcore gamers (whatever that means), but this title is a lasting addition to the creative gaming world and deserves a place in the console in any household. When friends ask me why I own a Wii ... this is the game I show them: entertaining, challenging, and social, it is simply one of the most fun games I've ever played.
