    World of Goo's mix of ingenious physics-based puzzles and witty, colorful presentation make it a game almost everyone should check out. It goes by fast -- you can get through most of the puzzles in 5-6 hours -- but for $20, there's little excuse not to check out this World.

    World of Goo falls into a special category that only a select few games fall into. Do you remember when you first got your hands on Super Mario 64, the excitement that oozed out of you when you picked up the pad and controlled Mario around in 3D for the first time? Or when you were pulling out the Master Sword from its stone placement in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time? These were special moments in a gamer’s life and playing World of Goo deserves to be placed alongside such events.
  3. One of the best puzzle releases in the recent history of video games.
  4. After the fascinating demo-version, the full version is more than able to satisfy the wishes of the gamer. Every level will confront you with numerous new ideas and brainteasers, … boredom simply does not come up in World of Goo.

    World of Goo is an amazing downloadable PC game that you simply must buy. It's packed full of brilliant, challenging levels. It's gorgeous. It's got beautiful music. And it controls really well.
  6. World of Goo is a revolutionary and independent game that uses creativity to take advantage of the physics engine. A stunning, beatutiful title that will allow you to experience the true power behind the most elastic creatures ever seen in the videogame industry.
  7. This is a game that will make you hold your breath, and curse at your monitor (I have since apologized to my LCD).

Although it can be hard at times, it can really be satisfying to beat them. The game has great comical graphics (you don't need ultra-crysis realism to have good graphics, it just has to look good). It has funny little sounds for the goos. It is comical down to the core. The only time you will wouldn't like it is if you try the OCD. Expand

    Very cute and funny. Everything is done with the mind and knowledge of their business, so it is very difficult to break away from the game. I like it.

Un peu comme si on devait construire sur de la mélasse pour atteindre la commande et pouvoir enfin tirer la chasse.

    Comme dans un Bridge Constructor en somme mais avec ici uniquement du mauvais goût et de la débilité, laquelle devient de plus en plus débile à chaque sous-niveau et très répétitive. C'est évidemment en 2D 256 couleurs et aucune option n'est disponible, même pour diminuer ou éteindre la sale musique de merde.

    Un World of prout donc, totalement nul à chier et pitoyable, programmé par quelques stagiaires qui ont fumé toute la moquette de leur studio-cuisine.
