The game concept is fairly interesting (albeit plundered from Super Mario Sunshine/Prince of Persia 2008) and involves roaming around restoring colour to the game's inhabitants and buildings across 12 levels. It looks fantastic for the most part and the controls seem decent. At first, it's very enjoyable and seems to work fine although as you progress, you become increasingly aware of the INCREDIBLY poor saving system.
To complete all primary and secondary objectives then collect everything (minimum of 100 collectibles per level) takes approximately two hours and there is no way to manually save. The game will only save at the end of the main objectives and then once more after finishing the level. Of course, any game will have it's fair share of bugs but when you can't save manually, a crash can be devastating. Unfortunately, with my copy at least, the game keeps crashing. First the music cuts in and out before cutting off completely then, after a while, Blob will get STUCK. Not even on scenery. He'll literally just stop suddenly leaving me unable to do anything. Once I give up and select quit game, the screen goes black and crashes my PS3. I now have no choice but to give up and play something else.
It's a shame as this game did seem fun so hopefully you won't suffer the same problems as I did.
