    It's full of wonderful illustrations, delightfully twisted humor, and just enough nuance to set itself apart from other similar titles. It's totally my new favorite.

    A well-built and entertaining deck-builder, Penny Arcade The Game: Gamers vs Evil is playable enough for anyone to enjoy.

    It's quirky, unusual and oddly addictive to quickly burn through hand after hand against AI opponents. And when that gets tired, the excellent asynchronous mode should ensure you're playing against friends well into the future.

    Nothing can truly replace sitting around a table or in a circle on the floor with friends as you play a board game, but 'Penny Arcade The Game: Gamers vs. Evil' makes it easier to enjoy the game without the mess, and that's almost worth the entry fee alone.

    Penny Arcade The Game is a disjointed card battling game that even hardcore fans of the webcomic will find lacking.
