  1. Stupid Invaders is fun and funny, a masterful blend of high art and low humor. (I am glad that computer-generated odors are not yet a reality.) It is my new favorite game of all-time, displacing even “The Longest Journey” and “Grim Fandango.”
  2. What adventure lovers will appreciate the most about this game, I think, is the fact that, with all its polish and rich production values, it's still at heart a completely traditional third-person point-and-click adventure.
  3. One of the best adventure games for the last couple of years, being thoroughly worked out and pleasingly rounded - it takes a lot of effort to appear so dumb, obviously.
  4. The same way a movie like "Weird Science" would never be considered for an Oscar, Stupid Invaders makes no pretense about being a landmark game. This one is all about humor and fun factor.
  5. You will not see better graphics, or hear better sound effects and music, or laugh more at absolutely zany jokes in a cartoon adventure on either a computer or movie screen.
  6. A very humours game. With luminous graphics, dozens of different locations to explore, and a zany set of characters to interact with it is a value at the retail price of $30 US. Oh and it has toilets… lots of them.
  7. All in all I had a nice time playing the Stupid Invaders. Still, if you are a serious adventure player, it won't take you more than a day or two to complete all four disks.
  8. Stupid Invaders requires amoral behavior to complete – you’ll kill more than a few people, including Santa – some of which is fun to watch.
  9. An enjoyable, silly diversion that will trigger a few laughs and -- unfortunately -- a bit of aggravation, as well.

    Two parts magic, one part dirty underwear. If you're willing to put up with some weird glitches, some frustrating game design, and some slow pacing, you'll find some of the weirdest and best humor in years. Just get your mouse-fishing hand ready.
  11. Perhaps the freakiest, most outright offensive title since "Panty Raider," this no-brain child of development house Xilam proudly touts its own immaturity, Fred Durst-style. Technically, that's why you'll have such a blast playing the sucker despite a few glaring flaws.
  12. 70
    Funny gags, cool graphics, neat characters and easy progression make this an ideal way to wile away a rainy day. Don't expect too much and I guarantee you'll be pleasantly surprised.
  13. A solid "B" title that could have been better if it was longer, had more bug testing and the designers spent more time working on the quality of the puzzle-solving. It sure is funny, though. Stupid, but funny.
  14. The easy puzzles and outstanding graphics make Stupid Invaders seem more like a lengthy exercise in computer animation than a fully realized adventure game.
  15. Do you like intuitive, point-and-click adventures with animated smart cursors and lots of fantastic locations? How about sophomoric humor and more gags about farts, dumps, boogers, and bodily functions than Ren has nose hairs?
  16. If you like the humour in the Farrelly films or if you're partial to "Tom and Jerry" cartoons you will love Stupid Invaders.
  17. If there is a patch by the time you read this, and you're the type who pegs the name Peter Johnson as a redundancy, then you'll probably get a kick out of it.
  18. Overall, Stupid Invaders is an adventure title that just isn't as much fun as it should be. But it's plenty stupid.
  19. Maybe it excels with its graphics but it tries too hard to be funny and many jokes don't work at all.
  20. Who says adventure gaming is dead? Well actually, this game does.
  21. Looks like fun, plays like crap, and isn't even that funny.
  22. Comedy that fails to deliver much of anything in the way of humor is a sad product. All the components for a successful funfest are present but the end result falls flat.
  23. 35
    A great concept marred by exceptionally bad implementation. A game that is impossible to recommend to anyone, for any reason.
