One day he has an accident and wakes up with a giant pink spaghetti arm sticking out of his brain. This gives him awesome powers and he can suddenly change the world around him by folding it, tearing it, pulling stickers off and sticking them elsewhere! And if that weren't enough, Ray can also read peoples minds! Digging into the brains of his fellow citizens, Ray can hear their thoughts and use that to his advantage. Unfortunately, Ray doesn't have much time to get to grips with his new abilities. He is framed by 'The Man' with a crime he didn't commit, and is on the run. Can you help to get Ray out of this sticky situation? Expand

    A little big game full of charm and personality: smart, funny and deeply original, Stick It To The Man is definitely worth your time and money. Or at least that's what the minuscule alien in my brain is telling me.

    Stick it to the Man will drag you into its grotesque and insane atmosphere from the start, offering you a fresh style of gameplay, never frustrating. To this we must add the excellent use made of the DualShock 4 and its speaker.

    The game’s short story and lack of additional content mean that this is a trip that you can take in a single evening – but its originality makes it more than worth the ride. Indeed, while this zany affair may be fleeting, its characters and dialogue will stick with you long after the credits roll, and that’s reason enough to engross yourself in its wacky world.

    Stick It to the Man is a charming and delightful little adventure game. It doesn't have the most content, but it's a fun experience.

    More enjoyable for the experience than for the actual gameplay.

    A weird, but unique game that's fun to play once. There's hardly any replay value though and the gameplay's rather repetitive.

    The visuals are great, the idea of a mind reading tentacle is interesting – but don’t expect a challenge.

Completely whacky story with individual characters all of which stick in your memory for a long time to come. Different to anything I've ever played game/story wise as well, as different as it is they've got it to work so well. All the elements come together to make it a memorable ride of madness. Well done to the game makers, they took a risk with this but it works so well. Expand

The visuals at the beginning didn't appeal to me, but once you get into the story, i couldn't see it any other way. The idea of getting into peoples thoughts and figuring out puzzles was very entertaining. It isn't too long, which is a good thing. They put the perfect amount of time into this and they don't have much filler at all. I really enjoyed this game and would recommend it to anyone that wants to enjoy a fun and interesting story without being challenged too much. Expand

    This is the Lite 2D version of Psychonauts.
    First and foremost the art is a mix of Psychonauts and Puppeteer. Great stuff, it's one of its high points. The second high point is the characters and the humor. It's Schaffer class. The story is also quite nice.

    On the down side, it's worst aspect is its non-platforming. It's a 2D puzzle platformer and it plays as a point n click game. There are 2 kinds of puzzles, the "escape from the goons" and the "which sticker goes where". Sadly, that's the whole gameplay. Maybe one or two times in the entirety of the game I had to do something different such as make someone follow me to a specific place, but that's it.

    it's too bad that it is as shallow as it gets cause the story is quite nice, the art is great and the humor is LOL type. More gameplay elements people and make more layers to the sticker puzzles.

The game is really short but I'm glad it is because the game itself isn't very fun. Not only is it not fun, the game is easy too.. I will give credit to the people who made this game though because the mind reading and being able to take an item from the persons thoughts is pretty cool.... The game is a puzzle game with platforming, don't expect this game to be addictive either, I found many times where I wanted to put the game down out of sheer boredom...The game really starts on Chapter 3 as the first 2 chapters are kind of like tutorials.
    The game reminded me a lot like Little big planet mostly because of the art style.. Everything is made out of cardboard and stickers, I like the art style very much.. Game will probably take around 2 hours to beat.... Since it's free on PSN I'd give it a look just because it can be pretty humorous sometimes albeit stupid humour but still funny.. Once you complete the game it is doubtful that you will want to return...

The humour seems like its from a 16 year old kid, the game play is ridiculously repetitive and having to stop to listen to the very stupid dialog was a huge turnoff. They tried to be witty and a bit different but came across and lazy and trying to squeeze everything to be funny when it really wasn't. I tried giving it an honest go and hated it the entire time I played.

    PS4 should honestly give us another game for this month, I would have preferred online checkers to this.
