No. 4: Boom Blox Bash Party( EA )
After the first Boom Blox caught us by surprise in 2008, we used it to show everyone we knew why they had to buy a Wii to play it. This year, along came the sequel, Boom Blox Bash Party, and we were all hooked anew.
The game has bright, colorful visuals, spot-on perfect controls and simple yet amusing fun. Some of the improvements to an already sound franchise include the co-op mode (team up with a pal to knock over the blocks) and a better level editor (which lets you download new levels created by the game designers as well as fans).
Details: Nintendo Wii platform; $39.99; rated Everyone (cartoon violence).
