Slightly Amusing

After figuring out what you have to do, it's a pretty cool game. It destroys your eyes because it requires extreme concentration on small objects, so be prepared for that. It's not worth holding onto that long, though. Game On!

Weak

Not quite what we expected

While in Japan we became fans of Bust-A-Move so when it came out for the WII it seemed like it would translate well. It didn't. The game play is cumbersome, but I think I could have gotten used to that. The big letdown was the multi-player game mode that we had really been looking forward to. It was flat and chaotic. Chaotic is fine when done right, but this was just annoying chaotic and once the time was up the game was over. There were not additional levels or different screens. It was truly a let-down.

Really Bad

Avoid this Game!

Wow, what a disappointment. I rented this one without reading the reviews until it was already in the mail. What a mistake.

After first playing Super Bust-A-Move for PS2, I was hooked. I was never all that excited about single player "puzzle" mode, but fierce multiplayer battles consumed many evenings until my roommate moved out taking his PS2 with him. Multiplayer was challenging, fun, and rewarding. You could even play against the computer if you didn't have a human challenger around.

As soon as I saw Bust-A-Move Bash was coming out for Wii, I put it in my queue hoping to relive my Super Bust-A-Move experience. No such luck. Single player mode is ok, but nothing special. Multiplayer mode is terrible.

As other reviewers have mentioned, multiplayer mode has lost all that was good about previous iterations of the game. Having up to eight launchers all shooting frantically at the same set of balls on the screen with no strategy or skill involved is really no fun at all.

If you're a rabid Bust-A-Move fan and can't get enough single player "puzzle" mode, then you might consider renting this. If you're hoping for a good multiplayer experience, then you should look elsewhere. Either way, I'd be hard pressed to recommend purchasing this game to anybody. Even the most die-hard Bust-A-Move fan is unlikely to get more than an evening of fun out of this game.
