DailyGame: Boom Blox Review

DailyGame writes: "At its heart, the Wii's design goes after the casual audience (no big surprise, I know). It does this most obviously with the simplicity of its Wii Remote controller, which draws-in people who normally avoid scary-looking console controllers. The Wii Remote is cleverly disguised as a TV remote control, but if you want to see that fear creep back into the casual gamers' eyes, just attach the nunchuck to it and watch them all run away.
