World of Goo (PC)

True achievements
8 January 2010
  • Conclusion: That is if you can get the marketplace to download and install the game without to much drama, and hopefully none of the achievements glitch as GFWL has notoriously gitchy achievements But if you get in on the holiday special, its well worth the 800MSP but at its regular price of 1600 its reserved for fans.

Test World Of Goo

Generation NT
29 November 2009
  • Conclusion: On présentait World of Goo comme un soft faussement enfantin au vu de la complexité de certains mécanismes et des niveaux plus qu'ardus parfois. Mais c'est malgré tout un vrai retour en enfance qui s'opère à son contact. On se remet à trouver les petites boules toutes mimi et innocentes, n'aspirant qu'à les aider à retrouver le chemin du tuyau. On écoute la musique parfois mélancolique ou bien tonitruante juste pour le plaisir du thème qui passe entre nos oreilles.
  • Pros: Ludique, Esthétique, Onirique, Complexe, Challenges des OCD et du World of Goo Corporation, Prix raisonnable, Fait appel au civisme en enlevant les DRM
  • Cons: Un peu trop court, Quelques niveaux sans difficulté aucune

Goo-dness Gracious

Game Debate
5 February 2009
  • Excerpt: The Metacritic list of 2008’s top-rated games contains some rather obvious entries.  Super Smash Brothers, GTA 4, Metal Gear Solid 4 - frankly, you could wrap a turd in a box and write any of these names on the front, and it would still guarantee some high review scores.  However, number seven on the list is a peculiar one indeed.  World of Goo, a WiiWare title with an average score of 94.

  • Excerpt: For a year in game time, the squishy critters in World of Goo are the objects of your care, your hopes and your grief; you won't soon forget them. They fall in droves from above, spill from the mouths of stony-faced creatures, bob and splash in pools of water, and sleep peacefully in piles until you excitedly stir them. As their unseen, guiding hand, you then take your pick of the goo balls and build them into improbable latticed structures that the others traverse.

World of Goo

Cosmos Gaming
17 November 2008
  • Summary: This is one of the best 2D games of our time and you would be a fool to pass up an opportunity to try it. Grab the demo and give it a shot. If you don’t like it, you have no soul! No but seriously, if this game even sounds remotely interesting or if you just like to think, buy this game. On that note, SUPPORT SMALL DEVELOPERS! They could be the future of the industry!
  • Pros: -Gorgeous and unique art design., -Extremely fresh and innovative concept., -So simple, yet so complex that just about everyone will get stumped at some point for a while., -Very good price point, especially considering the length of the game., -First game from a new developer; shows great promise, much like The Behemoth., -A sign of good things to come, maybe?
  • Cons: -Sound quality could use a little improvement., -Resolution and window settings would have been nice features.

Expert Review

GameSpot
31 October 2008
  • Summary: World of Goo may ship in a plain-Jane box that makes it look exactly like the usual third-rate dreck that takes up space on a back shelf in your neighborhood department store, but this physics-based puzzler is one of the most innovative and addictive games to hit the PC in years. Independent developer 2D Boy has hit the jackpot, turning what appears to be a simple building game into what could just be the next casual-gaming obsession right up there with classics such as...
  • Pros: 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
  • Cons: The controls can't always keep up with the action, Visuals aren't as vibrant as they could be given the cartoony premise

World of Goo Review

GamerNode
28 October 2008
  • Excerpt: There has been a lot of positive buzz surrounding independent physics-based puzzle game World of Goo. And no surprise, as it combines a nearly flawlessly executed simple and solid concept with a boundlessly charming look and feel. The basic concept for World of Goo is simple and effective; you start with a number of goo balls at a certain distance from the goal (a pipeline) often with obstacles in the way.

  • Excerpt: were developed and published by Nintendo -- which it absolutely could be, given the phenomenal fusion of style and substance on display here -- not one person would have a problem with its being released as a full-price title. At this super-budget rate, it's simply incredible.
