World of Goo Review

 

World of Goo is what platforming puzzlers are all about -- and is one of the best games of 2008.

Innovative, refreshing, and engaging physics-based puzzles featuring a surprisingly lovable cast of goo balls

You're going to want more World of Goo than there currently is

Still, World of Goo is a fantastic game, and without a doubt the best WiiWare title on the market. I'd even go as far as saying it's one of the most enjoyable titles on the Wii, period. And, for you PC gamers, World of Goo is without a doubt one of the...

With the rush of highly anticipated titles being released this fall, it would be a true shame if World of Goo got lost in the shuffle. While lacking the advertising budget of many of this season's megahits, World of Goo has been championed by...

Some games are made to be easy to pick up and play so that anyone can quickly get stuck in and start having fun. Other games are necessarily more complex, requiring detailed controls or play styles to be learned before the, often deeper game, opens up...

What happens when inspiration and endless ideas come together

Constantly surprising ; Always inventive ; Beautiful in amusing ways

Doesn't simulate physics ; Sometimes hard to find goo ; Aggravates obsessions

The second game that comes to mind is Portal, which took a very simple concept and developed it into an imaginative, funny, polished three-hour gem. World of Goo worked out at more than twice the length for us, while being no less polished, or funny,...

Delightfully time consuming.

 

Generally, I'm not a video game player. However, WOG is an exception. As stated in the CNET review, the game is deceptively simple, but can be very challenging. Often there is more than one way to solve the puzzle of a given level, and there's always...

Very addictive, looks simple, easy to master the basics, but like all good games, the strategy is what counts

Time consuming

Goooorific!

 

This is a great all ages game! I hope there is a sequel, or even a continuation of this theme in their next game. I will be looking forward to seeing what they come up with next!

This is a great game. It combines puzzles with fairly sophisticated engineering. I have definitely gotten my money's worth from this title. My kids ages 9-17 loved it, and I think all of them finished it as well ; Try it, you won't regret it ; Did I...

not free ; does not make me breakfast in the morning
