This was a title I was really looking forward to and the reviews are very solid:

It got IGN's Editor's Choice Award with a 8.7 / 10, definitely worth a pickup!

I guess I'll be the first to say this: no online, only 10-hour story, lack of real challenges: I'll wait for a price drop. :D

None of those are important in the least to me. I can see why they would break the deal for some people, but a 10-hour, fun, pretty, easy game is pretty much my ideal game these days.

They should hold the price for a bit.

OK I got this game and if you own a Wii you need to pick it up. This game is like breathing fresh air. Needless to say I am a fan. I am a little surprised no one else is talking about it. Must be the Mega Man craze making people forget about this one:)

Well I decided to get this over Wario, and I'm definitely not disappointed. I'd recommend this game at full price, and I wouldn't even say the same for Boom Blox (which was still a great game by the way).

The iPhone version doesn't play quite like the Wii version, I think.

Played my rental this afternoon - awesome game. It took about 5 minutes to get addicted to the painting, though I somehow missed 6% of the first level after 25 minutes. I wish they would have put the jump on A or something, but it works if you're precise. Will buy.

I had a lot of fun with the free PC game download over a year ago and was really afraid that this was being overproduced. I'm interested to see what an a calendar year of development has brought to the table.

Picked this up since it took my Best Buy over a week to put it on shelves, because they are run by idiots.

Awesome. Completely awesome.

It's got Katamari's gameplay and all of the charm, but combined with more of a European flair than esoteric Japanese weirdness. You've got cute characters with funny voice gibberish-logue and beautiful graphics with great personality. The gameplay itself is very simple, but very effective at the same time (which is what I prefer in my games these days).

Absolutely recommended to anyone. MarioColbert - you need to get this game all up ins yo' house. 'Cuz guess what - the enemies look like Purple Tentacle's evil cousins.

Got it last Friday as well, and also love it. My only gripe is that even if you rush like mad, it takes about 30 minutes to finish a level and save your progress -- an autosave after opening each gate would have been soooooooooooooo welcome. As it is, I can't really play it until I know I have a chunk of time reserved for it.

Other than that, it's awesome. Fun gameplay, goofy animations, awesome dynamic music, smooth framerate, easy enough for casuals but challenging enough for experts (try painting 100% of a level, I double-dog-dare ya), can't recommend it highly enough.

Well, bear in mind that you could probably do the bare-minimum to open the gates fairly quickly, unless later levels really up the reqs. I think I had opened up the first three gates before I went through the first one.

Unless you were doing just that and I am in for a lengthy surprise when I get back into the game.

It seems to me that even if you went as fast as you could, it takes around 25-35 minutes minimum to finish a level. Maybe it's my completist attitude at fault, but some intermediate save points would really make things perfect for me.

He's busy with scholastic things.

And also showing me a speedrun he did through Another World, a feat so mesmerizing that I had to break my monitor to stop watching it over and over.

And yeah, MC just finished playing through Heart of Darkness. Eric Chahi - were things fair in this universe - would be king among game developers.
