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.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This game is overall great. It is not amazing, But it is very enjoyable. The humor is weird, and I love it. It has a very dark undertone though, With many horrid things in it, like a man about to hang himself because his girlfriend left him, and a man at a psychic because his dad and he had an argument then his dad died. The game feels like a very dark morbid Paper Mario. The level design is new and refreshing as characters are 2d and the environment is 3d and All seems to be made of metal and cardboard. Expand

The soundtrack is above par. The controls, eh. Sometimes I find myself missing a platform jump or an item grab with the sticky hand and it takes me out of the game. I have gone back to the game a few times just for the cheese factor and get a little laugh every now and then. I think what makes it a 7 from say a 5 are the visuals and the goofy world you get to play in. I love the cardboard-esque town and seeing the cars float by and the eerie street lights illuminating the town. A good indy worth a few bucks or a free download. Polished controls and a better plot line could have made the game better. Expand

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.
