    This is a nice XBLA platform game: it tells a story about a gum candy-man, who is dropped in the trash, and his quest to survive being "sour". The game have god 3D scenarios graphics, but in a classic 2D gameplay, where you progress through the stages (a cinema), and that have elements proportional to your size. It has a funny (actually strange) game narrator, but after sometime, his linesThis is a nice XBLA platform game: it tells a story about a gum candy-man, who is dropped in the trash, and his quest to survive being "sour". The game have god 3D scenarios graphics, but in a classic 2D gameplay, where you progress through the stages (a cinema), and that have elements proportional to your size. It has a funny (actually strange) game narrator, but after sometime, his lines repeat. In the gameplay we have classic elements: jumping, wall jumping, killing enemies by jumping in their head, and collecting of little green gummy, points stars and secret items, but with some other features: you gather other gummy guys, to increase your size, to do other actions. The final score of the level is given by the amount of things you've collected, secret discovered and by sacrificing other gummy in a variety of ways (burned, melted, spiked, etc.). The game have a somewhat simple gameplay, but you can play it in coop in the same console, with nice graphics. It's a god addition for your game library, if you have some extra points to spare - my score: 7,0 / 10,0 . Expand

    World Gone Sour is a fun little game with a few surprises and flaws. However, for $5 you should get a decent value for your money without getting force-fed Sour Patch Kids advertising.

    World Gone Sour is a classic example of 'you get what you pay for'. It's a short, inexpensive adventure that will appeal more to the kiddies than it will the adults. However, given the subject matter, I'm not sure that it would have been fair to expect anything else, especially considering the cost of admission.

    Is World Gone Sour worth the 400 MS point price that Capcom is asking? Yes and no. While the controls, graphics, and sound are all marginal at best there is still something sadistically enjoyable about watching computer animated Sour Patch Kids get dismembered and impaled on various traps.
