World of Goo
Different and challenging
Every level of this puzzle game has a twist, and you don't quite know how you solve each one, yet somehow it just clicks and you feel a great sense of achievement reaching each level goal. And just when you think you have worked it out, there's a new goo introduced, and some new way to reach the exit. I haven't finished it yet - but I like doing one level at a time, and keep coming back to it. Am on the fourth area now, and it's kept me amused for weeks. Highly recommended.

I got this game for my son but found myself addicted! It's fun, challenging and great for all ages.

This game has everything going for it, except for one thing. You can't turn the sound off! It is incredibly clever, and the sound effects and creativity actually remind me of little big planet (a game for the playstation 3). It's a puzzle game completely different than anything I've ever played. If there was a way to turn the sound off, I would purchase it in a heart beat. For now, I'm going to recommend it to everyone who doesn't mind the sound.

I like World of Goo, especially the locations. I find it quite similar to Tasty Planet: Back for Seconds.

Where are the instructions?
There are no directions for this game and after two different sessions, I couldn't make sense of it. I'm supposed to get 8 of something but it doesn't say what that something is or how to get it. It's a mystery as to why the round ends and I've gotten only 7 or 0 or whatever. The only reason I tried as long as I did is because the goo makes cute noises.

NO VOLUME CONTROL?
Might be a good game; BUT one has to be in a sound proof room, or reconfigure your computer coming or going from/to this game.

I Hate the Goo and Everything It Touches
I like different types of puzzle games, but it took me awhile to figure out why I hate this one so much. It's the goo itself. It seemed fun at first, but play it for awhile and see how much "fun" this goo stuff actually is. There's a reason why no one builds anything out of fluctuating, vibrating, gyrating goo balls in real life (if there were such things)-- because it's stupid and pointless. This game seemed creative and fun at first, but after trying to get through some of the game's frustrating levels for awhile, there was no fun factor left. The graphics got old fast, as did the high-pitched, gibbering sound effects. There isn't much payoff for success; your goo balls get sucked into a jar and get sent to Goo Corporation or something where you can build more goo towers if you are so inclined. (Yippee.) I play games to have fun and relax, not to be annoyed. I hate everything about this game.
