  1. The environments themselves seem to be their own joke and each have their own additional personality, which really makes them fun to explore.
  2. Chiefly a 10-hour version of one of the comic strips, with all that implies.
  3. A fairly short game / A welcome respite from Fall / Many games, no time.
  4. Episode Two is still thoroughly ridiculous and amusing, but compared to the first episode it pales, feeling much more like a stop-gap than a fully-fledged follow-up.
  5. The raunchy humor and off the wall story kept on giving to the end making it one of best parts of the game. Although the 1200 Microsoft Points may seem high (cheaper than the first by 400 MS Points) for some picky consumers the game will be a welcome addition to anyone’s games library.
  6. It's a funny game, it's a better game than its predecessor and there are certainly worse ways to spend four or five hours. Episode Two nudges the series up from Just Okay to Actually Pretty Good. Let's hope that the third instalment continues the trend.
  7. Smarter, cheaper, longer and funnier, but the combat's just as dull and there's just as much of it. [Jan 2009, p.104]

    Just as fun as the first, if not more. Clever humor, of course... and the refinements to the combat system and the story are quite fun. I Just as fun as the first, if not more. Clever humor, of course... and the refinements to the combat system and the story are quite fun. I don't usually go for RPGs, but the Penny Arcade brand of adventure/RPG/whatever keeps me quite amused. Well worth it. Expand
