Writes the Globe and Mail's game blogger:
"World of Goo is a breath of fresh air in a video game season that, with few exceptions, is being overrun by guns and gore. The goo balls, with their googly eyes, are undeniably endearing creatures, and the 2D backgrounds, while basic, are filled with a cartoonish, Dr. Seuss-meets-Edward Gorey sort of character. It's sweet, simple, creative visual design.
But it's World of Goo's physics-based conundrums that make the game a truly special--perhaps even brilliant--interactive experience."
