Over dit spel

Gish isn't your average hero. In fact, he's not your average anything...you see, Gish is a ball of tar. A Sunday stroll with his lady friend, Brea, goes awry when a shadowy figure emerges from an open manhole and pulls Brea below ground. Following Brea's calls for help, Gish suddenly finds himself in the subterranean sewers of Dross, a long forgotten city filled with twisting corridors, evil traps, and some of the most demented creatures imaginable.

With his gelatinous structure as his only means of defense, Gish must follow the echoing cries of his damsel in distress deep within the earth below. What freakish creatures dwell in this subterranean land? Who is Brea's captor? And just how far down does the rabbit hole go?

Life isn't easy when you're a 12 pound ball of tar...

Sigh.

This is legitimately one of my favorite platforming games, and it's very fun and entertaining. Edmund wasn't ~amazing~ at making games yet, and it shows, but there's a lot of value here. The level design is cool (most of the time) and the music and stuff is all nice. Controlling Gish was quite fun and once you got the hang of it you could get him to do really neat things. You could throw enemies across the screen, do really cool parkour-esque platforming and tricks and stuff to get through levels quickly.

You've got to look past a few flaws, though. The unique platforming mechanics are hard to get used to it's turned many people away from the game, keeping them from giving this more than an hour or two of attention. I understand this. It's not a game for everybody. It's not rewarding enough for most people to warrant all of the trial and error, I think. Despite this, It's one of my favorite platformers and I love it.

At least, I used to love it.

Gish was recently updated. The achievements are now working, which is cool, but the game itself has gone completely to hell. You can now instantly kill yourself by moving the wrong way, or by squishing yourself against the ground or a rock, or by moving too quickly through a tight space. I've recently been playing the game for like an hour and a half and I killed myself dozens of times. Right now, the game is a ♥♥♥♥ing mess and it's almost unplayable. I don't know if Crypric Sea are planning on fixing this or not, but as of right now, this game is terrible. It's a shame, because I really loved it a lot. If they fix the engine to where you aren't commiting suicide every 15 seconds, I'll change my review and I'll most likely play the game again and enjoy it thoroughly. Until then, forget about it.

Most reviews have been voted down to about 60% helpfulness. This is largly because of the game's unique mechanics. People who "get" them downvote negative reviews, and those who "don't get it" downvote the positive reviews.

I've been playing this game with many people starting with the demo around 2004-5, specifically in sumo mode. I have not played the campaign, as I rarely play without friends. I have played 1000s of matches, and learned how to play.

Jumping is hard for some people. If you're a hater, you'll probably hate this game and give up, but if you learn how to jump, you'll admire the jump mechanic. If you play against serious players who've rocked this game 100s of times, you'll have a blast. It's a fun balance of creativity, reflexes and strategy that never gets old.

This is a great party game. Hooked up to a TV with 4 wireless xbox controllers, this game was a staple at a burger night. Everybody played, and even new players had a blast. The quick game resets and no load times make restarts a snap. It's also fun to watch.

If you don't have a TV and wireless controllers, use a projector 4 keyboards, or game controllers - they're $10 on ebay, or mix and match.

It's old, but it's good. This game was created in 2004, so the textures are a bit low res. The controls may seem alien at first, but once you learn, you can use crazy combo wall jump moves and squish the competition.

"Sluggish controls/physics. Kind of disappointment." was my initial impression a few years ago when I first got it. I gave the game another shot recently and for some reason it clicked with me more. The game is absurdly frustrating at times, but it can be pretty compelling if you keep at it. The controls take quite a lot getting used to, and you should most definitely swallow your pride and play on easy mode! (the game is still plenty hard on easy mode, especially later)

I do want to say that this is a CAUTIOUS thumbs up. The game is really a 6/10.
