I’ve been playing this game for a while now, and I gotta say it’s a lot of fun. Like every game, it’s got its pros and cons. So here it is, my review.

Pros: The game is very addicting and it’s very long. There are over 6 stages and each one takes 2 or more hours to complete. By the end of a stage, you’ve been playing for so long that you can’t make yourself start another stage, so the game will last you for weeks, if not months. The game is very inventive. Basically, the world has been stripped of its color by an evil ink army, and your mission is to color it again. The great thing about it is that each stage has many different challenges. So many so, that it’s almost impossible to finish a stage with a perfect score, yet another thing that makes this game last.
As you play and pass stages, mini games are unlocked. There is even a multiplayer mode. This game is definitely worth the money.

Cons: Some of the very things that make this game great end up hurting it in the long run. Like the saying goes, too much of anything is a bad thing. In this case, the controls and camera angels will drive you insane. The more color you collect, the bigger and slower you become. You have to collect paint points in order to color certain things. This, combined with things like jumping on walls and sticking to them (which has its advantages), getting stuck in little nooks and crannies on objects on the wall, and not being able to see yourself because of some awkward camera angle, becomes so increasingly annoying that I found myself shouting at the screen. I haven’t done this since I was 13.

By the end of a stage, your hand feels like it’s going to fall off. You make your character jump by quickly whipping your remote up. Combining this with other controls to squash baddies, getting stuck again on some wall when you meant to jump, makes you spastically try to jump making you look like you have some sort of disability. By the end of the game, you’ll feel like you do.

That said, the game is worth it.

Grade: B
