Most Disappointing Game is a crappy honour to receive. It doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s the worst game, but it’s a game that people had certain expectations for going into it that ultimately weren’t reached.
In Third Person’s Most Disappoint Game Award goes to a sequel that was a sleeper hit. I had a ton of fun with it and couldn’t wait for the sequel. Be careful what you wish for…
The revolution will be televised. Well, the colour revolution, anyway. The sequel to the highly-fun and possibly underrated Wii platformer is back; this time on the Wii, PlayStation 3 and XBOX 360. As a huge fan of the first game, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the sequel. Though I’m only on level 3 of a possible 11 (that I can see on the world map), I thought I’d share some thoughts on my experiences so far.
The original de Blob was my surprise game of 2010. Though I was a few years late to the party, this sleeper hit made quite the impact on me. It was by no means a perfect game, but this joyous game was just a pleasure to play. There are very few games I would wholeheartedly recommend to anyone of any gaming skill or taste, but de Blob is one of those games. If you have a Wii and have not played this game, you’re missing out.
I’m not sure if de Blob 2 will find (or exceed) the success of the first game, but I did my part and picked up a copy.
