Excerpt: de BLOB fell through the cracks somehow. I remember playing this game at E3 in the year of our Lord 2008. It impressed me quite a bit. We never got a reviewable copy and we were busy with lots of other games. I realized that we had not reviewed it, so I went out and purchased this game.
Excerpt: A new feature at EdutainingKids.com, our Buyer's Guides help make buying choices easy for consumers. We test hundreds of children's products and strive to keep up to date on the latest releases. Of course, every family is unique. We can't please everyone.
Conclusion: What’s kept me glued is an insatiable need to free every Graydian, paint every gray surface, and flush out every INK-polluted waterway because I actually care about the Graydians as much as I want to paint Comrade Black’s backside red.
Excerpt: What is it? Imagine a world full of fun, laughter and colour. This is the world of Raydia and its most colourful city Chroma. The people that live there (the Raydians) love the colour, but evil doer Comrade Black doesn't and neither does his INKT Corporation.
Conclusion: de Blob is a game that has actually had a long journey in coming to the Wii. The whole concept was showcased more than two years ago at an independent game festival. The folks at THQ realized the concept's potential, and the resulting game is a fun and free-wheeling experience that is simple enough...
Conclusion: Amongst all the character, there are a few slight drawbacks. Nearly every quest is in the ‘go here, fetch this’ mould, which doesn’t add any variety to the game and can leave you feeling a bit unfulfilled. On the plus side, the game does encourage you to explore the vast and rich areas.
Conclusion: For the price de Blob might look like a big risk because most third party games run with one gimmick. I am glad to inform everyone that de Blob is not a gimmick game; it is actually a game on the Wii that is worth your money.
Excerpt: When I first caught wind of de Blob, I was like “what the heck is that?” Controlling a blob while coloring a city was a different experience to say the least. The game is not your typical looking platformer, nor is it your regular playing one either.
Summary: If you have a heart and you wish to embrace your inner child all over again, there’s absolutely no question about it; you should buy this game. Even those who may find this sort of thing to be “kiddy” should give it a shot. Let go of that close-minded view for a few moments and get into it.
Pros: -Fantastic and incredibly charming visuals., -Silent, but extremely cute characters., -Highly addictive gameplay., -Multiplayer mode is fun for the whole family., -Controls are so easy that even my 4 year-old nephew was playing this game., -Plenty of extra stuff to seek out and paint in every lev...
Summary: I’ll admit, I’m a hardened skeptic when it comes to Wii games, especially third party titles. Nintendo’s emphasis on simple graphics and minigame collections has been interpreted as carte blanche for third parties to slack off and churn out shovelware.
