a beautiful, absorbing experience… brilliant to look at… the best videogame music I've heard… will make you forget your cares and immerse you in the game… you'll find yourself returning for the experience. 8.5! Editor’s Choice Award.
IGN

wonderful gameplay… beautifully polished and tantalizingly atmospheric… Osmos mixes puzzle, action and strategy remarkably and all the while does it with great finesse and style.

beyond doubt, a work of genius... a relaxing, meditative experience about going with the flow... It all adds up to something otherworldly and just . . . incredible.

an almost transcendental video game experience… a stellar example of electronic music's potential impact on indie video game production.

It takes careful maneuvering and LOTS of patience to navigate the blobiverse, as it's referred to in Osmos. Basically, you have to steer your little mote around increasingly difficult and complex little bubble universes absorbing other little motes to grow. As you proceed, other challenges are thrown in on top of the basic mission of "grow and survive". This is a fun, casual game that is both laid back and challenging at the same time. The game is enjoyable, attractive (nice visual style/pretty to look at), and has amazingly chill ambient music.

First half of the game is really good, if you like calm and tranquilizing games. You can play this while stoned. :D

Second half is utterly frustrating and the cause of the heap of antidepressants prescriptions in this land. xD

When you first start playing Osmos, it's both fun and appealing. However, the later levels increase the difficulty curve far too much. The amount of patience you need to complete some of the later levels is so high that you would need to play the whole level on slow motion and just pray it all goes well.

It's more frustrating than it is fun. Definitely not one I would consider playing unless you have a lot of time to kill and the patience of a saint.
