    The transition from the politics in episode 2 to the completely different slant of rock and roll in episode 3 never feels forced, out of place, or nonsensical. It just works because the writing is so damn good, and leads me to believe the creators of this series could cover any topic and still make a funny game.

    If you're not a fan you're probably going to be lost -- which is why you should head over to the official website right now and start catching up.
  4. Like the episodes before it, Baddest of the Bands is wildly ridiculous and largely entertaining. It doesn't pack quite the epic feel or the challenge of Episode 2, but the rocking subject matter is a perfect fit for Strong Bad's outrageous wit.
  5. 75
    While the adventure entertains about as well as its predecessors, Baddest of the Bands makes one notable misstep -- auxiliary elements like Teen Girl Squad and the classic-gaming minigames are less prominent in this iteration.
