Excellent

Good for a classic

I enjoy this game very much. It's a lot like the classic versions of Bust a Move, but now that you get to control your aim with the Wiimote, it means more precision when lining up your shots. That was always the complaint that I had in the past, was that it was harder to line up your shots based on just the controller alone.

I'm also a puzzle fanatic, so games like this are very appealing to me, and this one is likely a keeper.

So Close To Perfection

I love this game; it is just as fun as Kiwi Jamboree! I never played it on the pc or other platform so I cant compare. However I would give it a 10 but the controls could be a little finicky and you cant see the numbers on top (maybe if you have a plasma). This is Very Fun, if I didn't buy Kiwi I would buy this (maybe in a few months).

Very Good

Better than the average

Ok, so maybe I'm an old school gamer with a spot in my heart for early/mid 90s puzzle games - but this game is better than the average review score. It's not going to break any new ground nor is it going to win any awards, but it excels at one thing very few Wii games do - utilizing the wii remote to make the game control BETTER than its predecesor. I've been playing Bust a Move since the arcades and still dust off my copy of Bust a Move 2 (PSX) occasionally. The control option to point at the screen (and light hint line) gives you a solid idea of where your shot is going without it being too much of a gimmie - especially with bank shots. There's a ton of levels and plenty of variety in this package as well. I would have loved to see online options, but I'm a realist and this is the Wii, so that isn't going to happen.

If you enjoy old school puzzle games, this game is definitely worth a day or two of your time.
