It's rare that I agree 100% on a Gamespot review, but in this case, I do. I would agree that a 7.0 is a solid score for the game. It's not perfect, but it's darn fun. One issue I would add is the camera. I was fighting with the damn thing more than the enemies sometimes. Overall, though, it's a great, fun game.
i just grabbed this, amazing game... it is something totally different from almost everything on the xbox
I like the idea, but all the talk about lives and checkpoints kinda drew me away from the game.(Or should I say "de Game")
@bbagnall Comrade Black has nothing to do with Obama. You're just an idiot. It's a play on Communism, not race. Just because the word "black" is there doesn't mean that it's racist.
Epic Review, you really captured and relayed the spirit of the game, and all its strengths. as well as understood what the developers were aiming for when they made the changes that caused the game to be frustrating. good work
@goyoshi12 do realize that 'this/he/she/whatever' isn't normal. and some people might have difficulty accepting that. that aside, i believe carolyn needs to have 1 more surgery to remove the adam's apple.
@Chargrilled It's a girl...she's trans-genedered. You know what? Forget it, I am not about to go through all of her future reviews saying that! You guys hate "HIS" voice then DEAL WITH IT! :evil:
Well looks like the review is good with everyone! :D That's great, I just wish that it did better because it really seems like a great game idea. Well...de Blob 2 is here, let's see how the future looks for de Blob 3.
Good review. The Dead Space video review was a bit too long, but nicely translates the message to those who are lazy to read.
@TechnologoDoom Thanks! And I agree, the story of Blob's origins is very cool. I love the character and the concept, and hope to do more groovy Blobbin' in the future.
great review Carolyn!! And some of us actually like your voice :) it's silly that people would comment in such a mean spirit. how about looking at the game's content people? It's great to see a 2006 student-produced indie game start to come into it's own. Boy I'd love to see a fully retail package by Playdead or Team Meat!
Game looks like it might be fun for a little while, it looks like it could get repetitive and I HATE how they implemented the checkpoint system. You should never punish a player too severly in a platform game in this day and age.
Great review Carolyn!!! I love your writing style and especially your organization. You are a damn good writer!
Nice review Carolyn, Doesn't look like a game that would be worth a full purchase, maybe worth a rental or a quick gamefly stint.
Still haven't played the first one yet. Well that money can't go to much else beyond college right now. Oh well. I'll catch up at some point.
Seems like they fixed some of the problems of the first one and then added some new ones. Even though, I loved the first game and I'm sure I'll love this one too. Great review!
