Bust-A-Move as a game in itself is all well and good; shooting balls up into a big wall of sinking colored bubbles, clearing levels by hitting the same color, then moving on to the next. You have to think about aiming cleverly and rebounding off walls and it’s good as a distraction.

Unfortunately, on Wii nothing has changed - apart from using the remote to clumsily aim the shooter - and without any massive attempt to bolster this simple puzzler, it feels like a very weak package for our new gameboxes.
