Good

not as bad as everyone is saying

This game was pretty fun. If you're not inexperienced with the Wii Remote, you'll catch on pretty quickly. We had fun with it and its definitely not a game to play if you are a loner.

Bad

Great Idea

A game which was a great idea and sounds great on paper. Also, it even looks graphically appealing in the pictures...but this game just fails to execute. The gameplay is horrible and boring. It is very difficult to re-place the pieces and it just isn't very much fun. Pass on this one.

Rasy2kG Review: Jenga World Tour

When you say Jenga, I think back to all the fun I've had associated with that game. Whether it was the Jenga tournaments we held backstage during high school drama club performances or just playing it with my family when I was younger, Jenga always meant fun.

If there's one thing for certain, it's that Jenga World Tour has take that notion, torn it to shreds, burnt those shreds, taken the ashes, put them on a rocket ship and shot them into a black hole, never to be seen again.

Yes, Jenga World Tour for the Wii is bad enough to ruin something I've believed to be true for almost my entire life. Of course, I'll still play Jenga... just not this game in particular.

The game doesn't go to any lengths to look good, as it reminds me of a late-generation title on the PS1 or N64. Add in odd-looking block patterns like the neon blocks, and it's just ugly. On top of that, the game's soundtrack is entirely generic and forgettable, and the announcers are completely unnecessary.

The only saving grace of this game is that it has two mini-games buried deep within it that are actually kind of fun. Other than that, it's a forgettable game all around.

The "beauty" of Jenga World Tour is you're paying twice as much for something that's two hundred times less fun than the real thing. Bad A.I., super bad physics, and terrible controls have cone together to form a perfect storm of suckitude. This is a prime example of a game that deserves to be B.O.A.'d (bargain-binned on arrival), and even then, I can't justify a purchase.

Pros: Two mini-games buried deep in the title are actually fun.

Cons: Bad A.I., bad physics, ugly graphics, terrible controls... need I go on?
