"de Blob is almost great. The central idea is equal parts brilliant, clever, and funny, the gameplay is rewarding and fun, and it's got an unstoppable sense of style. Unfortunately, it also needs a once-over on the controls, and some consideration for the bit of the player's life that doesn't involve sitting still for hours at a time. de Blob is a blast right up to the point that it isn't, and that's about half an hour away from the nearest save."
