The classic remade really showcases a past for which both generations of gamers can enjoy.
We found out that this was the one the kids played most.
The look and feel is gorgeous, the puzzles are of a reasonable difficulty and the violence is relatively limited - something I pay great attention to when it comes to my kids. Essentially as far as I have seen (we did not complete the game yet) it is limited to the death of the hero when he falls in water or from too high, or when he touches one of the big bad black blobs. In any case there are lots of restore points - the only problem I see with that is the classic issue of teaching the kids that death is not that important and that you have another chance anyway - but here is not the place to discuss that matter.
One thing that would have been nice would have been to be able to save several games so that the members of the family could progress each at his own speed.
It would also be nice to have a multiplayer mode but this is not practical with the nature of the game. Oh well.
One good unadvertised surprised was the availability of the game in French and Spanish except for the voice (not a big deal considering the game). This may not be very important for most of the US customers but my kids speak both French and Spanish but little English.
All in all one of the best games we have for our Wii.
**Considering the price of this game(sixteen dollars), A Boy and His Blob deserves 5 stars.
Update 5/1/10: make sure you search for youtube videos when you get stuck. I did get stuck at the first boss, and needed the help. The first boss can take forever to defeat without that help. I accessed the youtube video and defeated the boss quickly after.
