  • Summary: Meet Ray, he lives in a world where everything is made out of paper and stickers. 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.

    Absolutely brilliant. Smart & funny writing, memorable characters, great voice acting, a nice mix of adventure gaming and platforming, etc. One of the best independent game releases I've had the pleasure of experiencing. Expand

    Very funny host of characters which are unique and hilarious. Game is pretty polished and has a very nice overall art style. I also loved the main character I think he was quite interesting and the story (although short) reveals much about this man in a beautiful light hearted fashion. Expand

    Great game with hilarious writing and amazing art! A great indie game from a extremely cool and genuine indie company called Zoink. Seriously give this a look if you are looking for a good puzzler with a great sense of humor. Expand

    This game is worth a 7 because I got it free with PSN. I likely would never pick this up if I had to pay cash but it was pretty fun.

    Pro's:

    1. Witty dialogue and fun story.
    2. Easy to understand controls and relatively simple objective that is fun working towards
    3. Getting the trophies is fun and at times can be challenging.

    Con's:
    1. Relatively simple with no real difficult challenge
    2. Short
    3. Can feel corny or repetitive as you make your way through the levels. I think I glitched it a few times as well.

    If you are looking for something a little entertaining to play, don't spend more than $10 on this but it can help pass the time when you need something light to explore between bigger releases.

    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.

    Yet another weak month on PSN.... Sigh... They could have given us Trials Evolution or Child Of Light or even Octodad, but no, we get another dull side scrolling indie game. I'm so fed up of the rubbish PSN is giving away I cant even be bothered to write a proper review this month since they cant be bothered researching games we may actually want to play on our shiny new PS4s. God I wish I'd waited longer and kept the PS3. Terrible game, dull, boring, dreadful graphics............ Zzzzzzzzzzzzzz Wake me up next month. Expand

    Absolutely boring game. 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.
