Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Great variety in puzzles
A lot of attention has been put into creating interesting levels with great pacing and variety throughout the game.
Pro Beautiful visual style
World of Goo is pleasing to look at. Most of the time it's very colorful and joyful, but it changes from time to time to reflect different parts of the world. Nevertheless, it is stylistically well presented throughout the game.
Pro Excellent physics engine
Physics in-game take into account gravity, wind, weight of different goo-balls, structural integrity of your architectural solutions to create an addictive, "let me try this one more time"-type of gameplay.
Pro A twisted tale
As you start playing there doesn't seem to be much of a story. A few philosophical messages left behind by the Sign Painter and a cut-scene here or there. But as you progress through the game you unearth different details about a slightly disturbing world.
Pro Good, funny music
Each level has good and very funny music.
Con No co-op mode
The PC version does not include the co-op mode that was included in the Wii Ware version.
