    The episode is brimming with pop culture references that range from The Color Purple, Se7en, The Shining, and even Samuel Adams beer.

    Telltale Games and the Chapman brothers have ended the first Season of Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People on a major high, with this last episode proving to be the wittiest, most engaging and laugh-out-loud hilarious of all five outings.
  3. A great end to a great series - we hope there's more but if there isn't, at least it's gone out on a high. [Feb 2009, p.86]

    Maybe it's the spot-on humor based on the industry I work in, or perhaps just accumulated experience from the earlier episodes, but whatever the reason, 8-Bit Is Enough certainly embodies the maxim of saving the best for last. Well, until the assumedly in-the-works second season rolls around.
  5. Episode 5 is about videogames – that can really only mean good things! It’s not longer than any of the other episodes, nor is there more to do, but it’s got more jokes than any other entry in the series, plus we finally get to see Trogdor in 3D – what more could you want?
  6. As a season closer, 8-Bit is enough is all that you could want from a Strong Bad game. Filled with references to earlier episodes, better and more polished gameplay, and as epic of a story as could be expected.
  7. Strong Bad Ep.5 is also the least linear of all the games in the series.

    I am a huge fan of Homestarrunner.com, so of course, I am LOVING these games. Episode 5 was my favorite in the series for a few reasons. Its I am a huge fan of Homestarrunner.com, so of course, I am LOVING these games. Episode 5 was my favorite in the series for a few reasons. Its little inside refrences and jokes were hilarious, and The story and fluidity were the best yet. The only bad parts was some of the logic was hard to figure out, and many puzzles I had to look up to finish. The story and the trademark H*R humor made this game a winner. Expand

    Great game, superior to the last one, way superior. It's witty humor and unique gameplay has returned with an update, and it uses it well. AGreat game, superior to the last one, way superior. It's witty humor and unique gameplay has returned with an update, and it uses it well. A great and well told follow up with a 'cliffhanger ending'. It is easily the second best in the series behind the second. Collapse
