From the review, "In most games, when you talk about the controls, you want precision. You want to know your character is going to react exactly the way you want, when you want him or her to. Octodad: Dadliest Catch doesn’t make that guarantee, and that’s exactly why someone is playing. It’s more of a QWOP kind of affair. You have some idea of what needs to be done and how to do it, but Octodad is an octopus. That’s part of the magic. Most of his challenges are routine, but it’s the fact that each limb must be controlled separately that makes it entertaining.
