Weak Co-Op Gaming: After playing through the addictive adventure mode, I was looking for a similar experience to share with my son. Unfortunately I didn't get one. The co-op levels felt more like something meant for training or to show off the tech than for fun.
For those of us who prefer to play with a friend, this is bad news. It's particularly upsetting to those of us who game with our kids, as there are so few co-op titles that appeal to adult gamers and yet are appropriate for kids. Boom Blox looked to buck this trend by having the depth and innovation that older gamers like, all wrapped up in a kid friendly package. For a system that caters to families like the Wii, you'd think good co-op games would be the norm. Unfortunately, that isn't the case. We'll just go back to playing minigame collections with our kids for the umpteenth time now.
