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,...

Imagine a cooking show that showed you what to do, and then could see you doing it. The game could offer helpful advice on how to stir, or slice. Think about a sermon where you interact with the pastor while learning about the Holy Bible. Nike+ Kinect...

I like the user interface. Everything is good about the game

It is a bit addictive. That's my problem with it

Great game, fun to look at, great music, all around pleasing to the senses. I don't have Wii, but played this for PC. Fantastic! Here's a link to a demo for anyone who wants to try it out....

I'm not your average gamer, so I'm not up on all the super sweet games, but this is the best game I've played in quite a while

It's a bit confusing at first to figure out the purpose of each level, but you'll soon learn that's part of the quirky, genius charm

A great game that my husband and I are now addicted to - hopefully they'll come out with "Goo 2" by the time we finish!

The music is funky and relaxing and the atmosphere reminds me of a combination of Dr. Seuss and Tim Burton. The use of physics and engineering basics along with the fun little goo balls makes it a cool game that challenges your mind

It might not be very easy to use for a younger child because of the need to understand basic concepts of building a strong structure and movement. My 9 year old is liking it, but not the younger kids

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.
