    World of Goo is coming out Monday on WiiWare and IGN has the first review of the game. They gave it a 9.5 and say only good things about the game.

    from the review:

    IGN doesn't hold the absolute truth, at lot of times they are wrong actually, but still, that's a good sign. Anyone else expecting this game? [​IMG]

    heh, never tried a wiiware game since none have really apealed to me yet, so this may well be the first.

    I was sold by "Absolutely phenomenal".. two words that big to describe a game means its bound to be good!

    I own it on PC, The game is awesome, the narrative in it is great, the levels are quite tricky too.

    I too am waiting for this game. Seems that I'm always playing WiiWare titles nowadays with Orbient, Strong Bad, Mega Man 9 & Bomberman.

    I never usually trust IGN reviews but every other reviewer is raving about it plus this title just looks like something I can just get stuck in and enjoy.

    Is the game usually dumped when it's available in the shop channel?
    And the game is never early in the shop channel (probably), so we can't get an early dump [​IMG]

    Is this a game that's a bit like Fantastic Contraption (the flashgame?)

    The PC version seems to be out already

    The Wiiware isn't even listed on Nintendo's website.

    Awesome website btw.

    Not usually, some even take over a week to get dumped "officially".

    Anyway I'd to get off the topic of dumping please.

    Its on the channel for NA gamers now, I'll wait to see what people say about it then I might buy it whenever it appears over here.

    Both the Wiiware (World Of Goo USA WiiWare Wii-WVCDUMPS) and PC version are available at bitGamer. Nice game, a bit hard when you have to build massive towers though [​IMG]
