5 Minutes of World of Goo

Limux version

Issues found in first five minutes
None

Five Minute Goodness
Gooey goodness. Looks, plays, sounds just great. If I liked this kind of game I would be right into it.

Score
7/10 I just think it deserves a seven.

Windows Version

Issues found in first five minutes
Only runs as administrator.

Five Minute Goodness
Gooey goodness. Looks, plays, sounds just great. If I liked this kind of game, and happened to be the system administrator, I would be right into it.

Score
0/10 Sorry, but any game... Game, get it? This is a game and not a disk formatting tool. This is not a DBMS or a web server or a mail server or a registry editor or a tool to add users to the system... This is a GAME dammit.

Uh, carried away. Starting again...

Score
0/10 Any game created this century that needs to be run as Administrator automatically gets a zero.

For me, any non-system app which requires you to run as Administrator deserves FAIL.

This encourages bad habits ("but how can I run as non-admin if I need it to play games?") and, also, well-written Windows apps should support non-admin access.
