    The episode is brimming with pop culture references that range from The Color Purple, Se7en, The Shining, and even Samuel Adams beer.
  2. With diverse stories and settings, great animations and overall visuals, and strong point & click gameplay along with hilariously smart-ass ribaldry that’s becoming the developer’s trademark, 8-Bit Is Enough is a satisfying series conclusion.
  3. 8-bit is Enough is another solid entry in the Strong Bad series.
  4. 83
    Maybe it's the spot-on humor based on the industry I work in, or perhaps just accumulated experience from the earlier episodes, but whatever the reason, 8-Bit Is Enough certainly embodies the maxim of saving the best for last. Well, until the assumedly in-the-works second season rolls around.
  5. Some of the most polished and laugh-out-loud writing that Telltale, or any other devloper, have made for a game since LucasArts in the '90s. [Mar 2009, p.75]
  6. 8-Bit Is Enough is a surprisingly slow-to-start but satisfying capstone to an eclectic first season for Homestar Runner and friends.
  7. Strong Bad Ep.5 is also the least linear of all the games in the series.

    I think Strong bad sum the game up in the first minute:
    "Fan... Service?"

    The final episode of the season has nearly everything that was
    left out of the past four. Every bit of fan service, right down to the most satisfying ending I could ever ask for. The subjects covered not only relate to the web-site, but even brings up other locational that most fans that will have to use the Wiki to understand. Expand
