  1. Nothing actually, the art direction was great! I was channeling critics who complained of it being too kiddy and simplistic, which I find as irrelevant an argument as complaints against the cel-shaded Zeldas.

    However, I have to wonder for every bit it resonated with kids, what did it lose in sales to older gamers? The characters were properly iconic, the world was visually elemental, and yet there is a "feeling" lacking, as if the Boom Blox look design wasn't hammered home hard enough. Personally, I'd like to have seen much more polish and fun in the environments, but all in all it didn't detract from the fun.
