World of Goo - Wii review at Thunderbolt Games

 

The Goo are awake. They'd been sleeping for ages, lurking deep in the recesses of our modern world. Discarded and forgotten, like so many wads of chewed gum. But they survived. Thrived. And now, with numbers beyond reckoning, they're on the move. It's...

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...

Puzzle game with a plot that actually works

As you might expect, your goo comes in a wide array of varieties. Standard goo will serve you well for making conventional structures, while bone goo acts as a stepping stool to protect your masterpiece from harm. Giant balls of beautiful goo need to...

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,...

World of Goo (WiiWare, PC) review

 

The definition of Goo in the dictionary goes along the lines of ?a thick or sticky substance?. That's certainly what you play around with in 2D Boy's first release.?Nobody would have thought messing with goo in a game would be so damn good?but?Kyle...

I could go on and on, but really all I need to do is start a petition to get the meaning of goo in the dictionary changed to ?a thick or sticky substance that makes for awesome games?.?Don?t miss this year's biggest surprise.

World of Goo review

 

Simplicity in puzzling is key. This, of course, is different from ease. One simultaneously wants to understand a puzzle's objective without, however, knowing exactly how that objective will be met. Thus classic puzzle games like Tetris found ready-made...

A simple premise, brilliantly executed, makes World of Goo one of the year's best puzzle games.

World of Goo

 

World of Goo started life as a small, free, flash based video game. In fact calling it a game would be a bit of an exaggeration. Really it was a toy with no defined objective. It was called Tower of Goo and it was about building a big tower out of...

World of Goo is coming out on PC and Wii on the 13th of October (that would be tomorrow then) and I would highly recommend nabbing a copy as soon as possible. Personally I pre-ordered it which meant receiving it a week early (hence the early review)...
