    Stick it to The Man! really is the complete package. Its style feels fully developed, its comedy proves genuinely funny, and its puzzles are actually fun to solve.

    This is a dark, thoroughly ridiculous world you're visiting, but it's an inviting one, and its odd sense of humor, semi-absurd puzzles, and delightful action grab your attention and hold it.

    The PS3's analog stick isn't the most accurate means of applying stickers and navigating Ray's world.

    With a touch more refinement in its platforming and less zeal in its agent-based aggression, Stick it to the Man could have staked a claim as one of the most essential games of the year.

    While Stick It to the Man! isn't a particularly long title (it may only take you between three to five hours to complete the game's ten chapters) there's loads to observe and listen in on, and dozens of minds per level to explore, leaving you wanting more. I couldn't get enough of it.

    There's a surprising amount of versatility to the characters. [Issue#143, p.117]
  7. It’s such a rare treat to find yourself blown away by a game you had no expectations of. I don’t want to ruin that feeling for you, so forget everything you just read after hitting the ‘buy’ button on the store, so you can enjoy the through-the-looking-glass wonderment of SITTM afresh. I can think of only one reason you wouldn’t go and play this, and it’s that you hate fun.

    Stick It to the Man is a great title that oozes charm, intelligence, and humour. It's hard not to recommend, even if it does have very limited replayability. Indeed, once you've worked your way through the campaign and heard all of the dialogue – as great as it is – there's very little left to do.

    Whenever a game can surprise you, it’s obviously a good thing. Stick It To The Man definitely does that at points – but, when it’s touted as a comedy and the laughs don’t come in thick and fast, disappointment follows.

    There is a lot of fun to be had with this title and is a cracking showcase of how to build on some tried and tested formulas.

    Stick It To The Man is such a bizarre and brilliant title overall offering an approximate six hour experience that can’t really be compared to anything else on PS3 or PS Vita.

    My largest disappointment came in how quickly my adventure came to a close, but given the solid overall experience, I am very interested to see where developer Zoink! goes from here.

    A brilliantly insane in the brain platform puzzler. An indie gem.

    I recommend this game to anyone who loves a good comedy and has a little patience.

    A personality-packed puzzlefest that defies categorisation and is one of the funniest games in recent memory. [February 2014, p80]

    All told, its peculiarities make for a fun and well-paced trip into cartoon weirdness with just enough of a Tim Schafer tint to pass the grade.

    It's quirky, it's weird and it's dark - Stick It To The Man is also brilliant and its effortless combination of bizarre humour and tricky puzzles is infectious.

    Stick it to The Man!
    From charming to tedious
    Stick it to the man is an adventure game where you play as Ray... a hard hat tester
    The game starts with him getting hit on the head, to find himself in this dream worth with a pink spaghetti arm sticking out of his head... and of course you have to figure out exactly what is going on…
    This opening tutorial level takes you through the basics...
    And is honestly what I wish the entire game was… a straight forward adventure platformer.. but sadly it isnt
    This is a game is told across 10 different chapters and is all about readings minds and trading items...
    It’s about 4 hours long and is full of humor which makes it so enjoyable…
    Your sticky hand can be used to grab thumb tacks to reach higher locations in a levels, but more importantly its used to read characters minds, and snatch their thoughts in the form of a sticker…
    As an adventure game you’re basically running around an area, using your map to see locations you haven’t been to yet and interacting with everything you can, listening to everyone’s thoughts until eventually someone thinks of an item you can grab and take it to the person that needs that item.. They’ll then either think of a new item or drop an item you need for someone else... and the cycle continues...
    It’s a really fun cycle, definitely one of my favorite ways an adventure game is delivered... you aren’t really combining items.. Just listening to characters, their needs, and providing them with those items to eventually be able to get what you need to move onto the next section…
    However… listening to characters gets old really fast…
    Dialog can go on for what feels like forever…
    Thankfully you are able to just fast forward thoughts, which is what I ended up doing for more than half of the game...
    he mind reading novelty quickly wore off for me…
    but you’re not the only one that knows about your sticky hand...
    There are of course bad guys after you too, and you’re able to read their minds to put effects on them like temporarily putting them asleep so you can sneak past them..
    At first they’re a nice little challenge for you to overcome every once in a while... but by the games end they just become a nuisance in your way...
    As the game wants to annoying you with like 5 of them at once…
    Though I was over this game long before its conclusion…
    This is still a really clever and charming game…
    There’s a story and mystery that keeps you going forward, the adventure aspects are delivered wonderfully and the writing is guaranteed to make you laugh here and there…
    I give Stick it to the Man!
    A 7.5/10

    The game is a lot of fetch quests, with some platforming, kind of like a dumbed-down spiderman game.

    The art and animation are both great,
    The game is a lot of fetch quests, with some platforming, kind of like a dumbed-down spiderman game.

    The art and animation are both great, unique and charming. The humour is funny, but some dialogs are long, and some become repetitive.

    The level design is good but sometimes the fixed camera in certain areas are not exactly ideal and can cause confusion. For example, sometimes there's a floor below you but the camera won't let you see it so you don't know where to go next.

    Cutscenes trigger too suddenly, and you can't listen to dialog while moving, making it hard to listen to all the possible dialogs.
