Played through World 1 last night, and it's a pretty fun typical Nintendo platformer with a cool style. Seems like critics being harsh on it is just a case of not knowing what you're getting. The game totally nails what it's going for, it just might not be for everyone.
Not sure I need to play too much more of it, but yeah, it's adorable. Contrary to Zero, the soundtrack might actually be my favorite part, haha.
Decided to sell my copy before getting 100% to put towards Paper Mario Color Splash. Still, Woolly World was tremendously enjoyable and I agree with Zero, it's the best one since Yoshi's Island for sure. A great time, well worth the full price I paid back then! (If you can get it cheaper now, it would be a steal.)
