    Strong Badia the Free is a great follow-up to Homestar Ruiner. The storyline is easier to follow, the jokes are tighter, and the puzzles are more challenging and intriguing.

    Telltale has once again delivered a must-have WiiWare download that is by far a cut above the rest.

    The main quest is entertaining enough to justify the $9 or $10 investment (based on your platform of choice), but the new and revised bonus elements really make Strong Badia the Free a comprehensive experience.
  4. Although Strong Badia the Free is a shorter episode than Homestar Ruiner, it’s more perfectly formed.
  5. Much still depends on how funny you find the Homestar Runner web cartoons, but Strong Bad remains an episodic experience well worth making time for each month.
  6. 75
    A tighter and more interesting instalment than the first episode, and a step in the right direction for this oddball series.
  7. Strong Badia the Free has some great gameplay ideas without proper implementation. As soon as it starts to get into a proper rhythm there’s a confusing portion that drives it to a deal halt, and some of the best sections of the game don’t pay off as well as they should, especially considering the Homestar Runner license.
