World of Goo - (Download via WiiWare) - PC [$15.00]

The downloadable offerings on all of the three major consoles were particularly strong this year, but World of Goo stands out above all others. This may well be the most addictive “build a structure to help things get home”-style puzzle game since the original Lemmings. World of Goo achieves this highly subjective title through a pleasantly Seussian art style, music that recalls Elfman doing a Burton film, and a difficulty curve that’s gentle without being insulting.  It’s quite literally a game the entire family can play. Its price is a little bit steep as WiiWare games go ($15), but it’s well worth every penny, offering a much better experience than all but a select few of the Wii games released to retail thus far.
