    Strong Badia the Free is a great follow-up to Homestar Ruiner. The storyline is easier to follow, the jokes are tighter, and the puzzles are more challenging and intriguing.
  2. It’s definitely shorter than the first episode, but more than makes up for it with way more witty banter and thoroughly enjoyable gameplay with more satisfying puzzles than in the first episode.
  3. With this episode, Strong Bad’s Cool Game 4 Attractive People has gone from niche product to required playing for any fan of adventure gaming.
  4. Although Strong Badia the Free is a shorter episode than Homestar Ruiner, it’s more perfectly formed.
  5. Funny and smart, but for a weak ending. So far, so good. [Dec 2008, p.92]
  6. Strong Badia the Free is mostly made up of all new environments, so it in no way felt like a simple recycling of Homestar Ruiner, and while the game's structure of "convert a country, to move to the next country" makes it inherently more predictable than Homestar Ruiner was, it's still full of surprises.
  7. All told, the second episode of Strong Bad’s Cool Game for Attractive People includes a little more talking and lot more collecting than Homestar Ruiner, with the same marginal amount of small-scale puzzling in between.
