Brilliant physics-based puzzler turns player into engineer.

 

Parents need to know that World of Goo contains little in the way of potentially offensive content. Its narrative -- which focuses on semi-intelligent balls of goo being used by a corporation to develop products such as beauty cream and a kind of drink...

World of Goo Review

 

This is exactly the kind of experience WiiWare seems designed for. 1500 Wii Points is really a small price to pay for excellence, especially when the sheer quality of World of Goo handily puts more than a few full-blown Wii releases to shame. It's a...

World of Goo

World of Goo

 

Brilliant design loaded with gameplay depth, Varied levels sporting wide-ranging objectives and different types of goo, Quirky, surreal sense of humor, Fantastic, atmospheric soundtrack.

Wii Remote controls can't always keep up with the action, Visuals aren't as vibrant as they could be, given the cartoony premise.

All in all, World of Goo plays like you're messing around with a slimy, virtual erector set loaded up with real physics and gravity. Don't miss one of the most original and addictive gaming experiences to come along in years.

How did three guys make this game?

Gameplay is addictive, fun, and varied ; Unique and fitting art style ; Epic music and perfect sound effects ; The Sign Painter

The first chapter is a slow start

Just bought this today. Whoa. This is awesome. All in all I've had a great week for video games. I've fallen in love with Wario Land, de Blob, and now World of Goo. Tetris Party awaits my affection (hopefully) tomorrow.
