I’m going to point one thing out right now. I hated the original. Released for the NES way back in the day. at first it was because I didn’t get what the hell I was suppose to be doing. Once I got older I tried again. Then I hated it because the way you controller the blob sucked pretty heavily. having to scroll through ALL your jelly beans with a single button was just stupid.
But, I kind of have to admit that I’m very interested in trying this sequel out that’s coming to the Wii later this year.
Kotaku.com has a full “what’s what” on the game so far. I really have to disagree with there thoughts on the difficulty though. As long as the game isn’t hard because the (god forbid) controls suck again, I think a steep difficulty is just what the doctor ordered against the easy, loose timing requirements, lack of reflexes gameplay that’s been flooding consoles ever since 3D gaming replaced sprites.
