  • OK, so yeah, it’s another local multiplayer game. Normally that means my jaded family will take some time to check the game out but ultimately find that it doesn’t inspire much fun or excitement. While I wish overall there was more to Boomerang Fu in terms of content I can’t fault what it has going for it though. While it may seem like a very simple distinction (it is), the choice of everyone’s base weapon of choice being a boomerang turns out to make all the difference. While most local multiplayer titles end up with everyone either slashing or shooting each other the boomerang allows for both and since there’s only one throwing it can be a very strategic decision. Will you be able to quickly get it back if you miss? Even if you may kill your opponent will it being out of your hands leave you vulnerable to someone close by who may capitalize on you being distracted? Aside from the weaponry another aspect I appreciate is the variety in the arenas you’ll find yourself in, with some having elements you can trigger to cause some chaos and others having elements like ice to change things up. Throw in options for team play or everyone for themselves as well as a few rule tweak provisions and while there may not be a ton here to enjoy what there is turns out to be quite a bit of fun.
