Summary: My 12 & 14 year old boys love this game. It keeps them busy for hours and they seem to be developing a knack for building structures out of goo that actually incorporate some structural engineering principles.
Summary: I got this as a Christmas gift for my dad. He immediately got hooked on it. The concept of the game is so simple, it's brilliant. Anybody can enjoy this game. I think men/boys like it especially because it involves physics, structures, etc. and guys tend to be good at stuff like that. I was a little hesitant to buy an online game code instead of a physical disc, but it worked fine.

Summary: World of Goo is quite possibly my favorite puzzle game of all time and one of my favorite games in general. Created almost entirely by pair of developers named Kyle Gabler and Ron Carmel, it's an incredibly fun and challenging adventure filled with surreal sights, haunting music, and engaging gameplay. You can download a demo of World of Goo by going to the Wii's shop channel or right to your computer by visiting 2Dboy.com, but if you like to hear more first, do read on.
Summary: I've played many games on the Wii, and this is one of my favorite. It's by far the best WiiWare game. My kids love it, and I love it too. It has a really funny sense of humor, and a very complex physics engine, which makes the whole world seem like it's really alive. Anybody with a Wii should own this game.
Summary: I bought the World of Goo game code for my 30 year old son for Christmas. He absolutely LOVES it! He's told me all about how much fun it is figuring out ways to get the "Goo" to different places by building bridges and other structures that will hold them. Games that require logic can be incredibly fun, exciting and very addicting! I couldn't be happier knowing I bought him something that's brought him so many hours of enjoyment. He's even invited me to play with him.
Summary: This game is addicting and fun. I love the challenge of logic based puzzles. You have to think about how to build bridges, having a structure strong enough to make it to your goal, but still leaving some goo balls left. Some trial and error, some logic and lots of variety. I hope to see another game like this soon.
Summary: I purchased World of Goo this weekend by using an online game code; we were having a family reunion and wanted to have something for folks to play during down time. We all had fun playing it, sometimes it was a little hard waiting your turn to take a try but when you got your chance to play the time flew. It is challenging for adults, yet the kids got the hang of it quickly. Of course the observers were very willing to offer advice and it quickly became a group effort.
