Bringing Jenga to Wii was a great idea, as it gets rid of the monotomy of having to re-stack the blocks between games.
What I didn't like was that they added new rules that completely contradicted the original rules of Jenga. Originally, you were not allowed to touch any other blocks but the one you pulled. This game allows you to poke around and even hold other blocks while you move them.
But if you can get over that, the controls are very shakey. They give you poor movement, especially for a game where movement is the key.

By all accounts you would think that Jenga might actually work on the Wii. However after going through a painful tutorial I felt confident I could do this.
I tried a single player game and as I tapped out my first block I tried to grab it...the tower fell. I tried again this time trying to go slower pulling out the block. The slightest jerk made the block come out way too fast resulting in a fallen tower. I continued trying but was not able to get ONE block out let alone multiple. Turned it off and sent it right back.
Maybe it takes super steady hand that I obviously don't have. Good luck if you give it a try.
