Baba is You has very high peaks, especially in the early stages and in the introduction of new rules, but its lows are terrible. Trying to be extremely difficult, it ends up with a bad, frustrating, and stale level design. The game seems to have forgotten that less is usually more.

I don't know if "BABA IS GOTY", but it may very well be.

Baba is You is a rare sort of puzzle game that I think everyone should play. It may not have the production values of a big budget game, but everything present works incredibly well together. The pacing, visual and sound design, level design, and implementation of its core mechanic create one of the best puzzle games I've ever played. What really puts it over the top for me is how it translates complicated logical puzzle solving into a concrete form that is easily understood. It's simple, accessible, and immensely gratifying.

From the moment I saw Baba Is You for the first time I already knew it was something I would be into a lot. After playing it for several hours and having gone through almost a hundred stages I found myself very addicted to it's gameplay loop and impressed by the quality of the puzzle design put inside the game. Baba Is You is one of the most creative games of recent years, a collection of systemic puzzles with a clever and challenging game design.
