  1. Insane, mutant tentacles. A frozen hamster. Three distinct playable characters. Time travel. Fake barf. Truly, this game has it all. One other thing Day of the Tentacle has in no short supply is charm. It's got that in spades. Everything about this game just comes together beautifully.

    It's one of those games that will capture you utterly, and take you along on a wonderfully entertaining ride and, in my opinion, it shouldn't be missed by any self-respecting adventurer with a good sense of humour. If you've already played it, then play it again, if you haven't, then there's a real treat waiting in store.
  3. Yet another one of LucasArts's masterpieces. The humor, the sound, the graphics, and the puzzles blend together to make Day of the Tentacle a must-play for any adventure lover.

    One hell of a game. Stop the IRS, end human slavery, and a dramatic final showdown with huge tentacles. Sounds like a recipe for some perveted anime, but it's nothing of the sort. Rather it's just one freakish and funny ride into the minds of Dave Grossman and Tim Schafer.
  5. Playing the game is a lot of laughs, and is the perfect pick me up after a long day playing intensely dramatic games.

    Man I used to play this game AGES ago on my old PowerMac. This game was awesome for the time and hilarious too. Can't get much better for point and click games. Full Review »

    This game is forever at the top of my list. If you like point-n-click adventure games, GET THIS! The game is a perfect mixture of entertainment, silliness, and sophisticated humor that isn't full of bathroom jokes. netjak and Adventure Gamers put it perfectly. Go out and get this game now if you have nothing to do - it's surely cheap in today's market consisting of Half Life 2 and Crysis. Full Review »

    For me, a peace of art itself... just art and very very fun.
