Excerpt: Since Nintendo had launched the WiiWare program in the shopping channel, developers with big ideas and little budgets from all around have flocked to this unique and exciting program to share their original titles. Some are better than others. Some shouldn't have bothered.
Conclusion: World of Goo is a fantastic game, and one that you would be crazy to miss. The five chapters will keep you entertained for some time (unless of course you cheat with the skip option), and after you are done you can join the rest of the games players by building the tallest tower of goo in the WOG...
Conclusion: Visually, this is probably one of the best looking games for the iPhone released in the past 3 months. The light, playful art style is not only unique to other apps, but helps intricately craft the story as well.
Conclusion: Overall, World of Goo is not only a great puzzle game, but one of the few truly amazing games available on WiiWare. With 48 levels spread out across five chapters, it's a great deal for console only players.
Conclusion: 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 blast from start to finish.

Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is Let’s face a fact: In today’s world of high-def gaming, packed with triple-A titles that cost millions to build, featuring razor-sharp graphics, 15+ hours of gameplay, and huge explosions / amounts of gore / other sick-minded fantasy things that we crave, no one’s...
Conclusion: So if you’re like me, and you love video games but are too often frustrated by them, World of Goo should be near the top of your list of games from this year to check out. It’s not a game that’s enjoyable despite its terrible, terrible flaws, it is actually great. It’s one to feel good about.
Excerpt: I generally don't write much about a game's soundtrack for the sole reason that I'm not particularly knowledgeable about music theory and it exposes one of my weaknesses as a writer. For World of Goo , though, I'll make an exception.
