    it 's like an odd marriage of paper mario and Grim Fandago (for the jokes and the artistic noire style!hilarious, genius and fresh!i wish it could have a little more variety in how you confront the enemies!the wiiU version is the best because of the extra wiiUpad features (off screen gameplay, gyroscope feature for mind reading, real time map of the stage, better resolution)..i could playit 's like an odd marriage of paper mario and Grim Fandago (for the jokes and the artistic noire style!hilarious, genius and fresh!i wish it could have a little more variety in how you confront the enemies!the wiiU version is the best because of the extra wiiUpad features (off screen gameplay, gyroscope feature for mind reading, real time map of the stage, better resolution)..i could play it gladly for second time just for the story!!!

    We need more games like this on the Wii U! Great voice acting, smart puzzles, and a jazzy soundtrack with just a smidge of platforming thrown in! Having the map on the GamePad and using the pad to read minds is REALLY cool. I hope the series continues as I loved every minute of it! Worth the download!

    Stick It to the Man! has all the makings of a fantastic game. The gameplay is your garden-variety 2D puzzle-platformer but with a twist: a knock on the head has caused your character, Ray, to have a large pink hand stick out of his head.

The gameplay is your garden-variety 2D puzzle-platformer but with a twist: a knock on the head has caused your character, Ray, to have a large pink hand stick out of his head. This hand is used as a grapple to travel around the world, and can pick up stickers to solve puzzles and others' problems, usually by reading peoples' minds, in an attempt to save the world and Ray's girlfriend, Arlene. This mechanic isn't particularly original, but it is used very effectively throughout the game. The art style is reminiscent of LittleBigPlanet, the world being completely made of cardboard with corkboard pins used as grappling points. The most engaging part of the game, though, has to be the voice acting. It is seriously good and makes the whole world come alive and really fun to explore. I had a ball just listening to all the citizens' thoughts, laughing out loud at the wonderful humour and the wittiness of the monologues. But with all of this positivity, there must be something that keeps the game from getting a perfect score - and that is the length of the game. It took me just six hours to beat, and I was going extremely slowly, having fun listening to all of the monologues and exploring the cardboard environment. It is unfortunate that there isn't even a small inkling of bonus material, no secret cutscene, nothing beyond the main game. A little disappointing, but this doesn't detract from the overall quality of the game, which really is very high. I recommend Stick It to the Man! to anyone looking for a short adventure with amazingly witty humour in the form of a puzzle-platformer. Really great game and much enjoyed. Expand

    Stick it to the man is such a brilliant unique game, featuring amazing voice acting, lovely game-play mechanics and a good length for how much it costs and its certainly a game that you think about after completing it because it has so much character to it and its just very enjoyable.

    Maybe Stick It To The Man is just a simple platformer with only slightly challenging puzzle elements that can be finished in a couple of hours, but thanks to its quantity and quality of humor and jokes, to me it was one of the best eShop experiences I’ve played on my Wii U.

    Stick It To The Man! is a great adventure game whose only crime is that it's over before you know it.

    Stick It To The Man is a great downloadable titles with plenty of actual laughs and some engaging gameplay to match. With so much that could have gone wrong, you owe it to yourself to check out the game that got so much right.
