    This game is based on the pen and paper RPG of the same name. As someone who read the books and ran the tabletop game for my friends, I love it. It does what it set out to do, and it does it well. As for the uninitiated, just remember that this is a silly game--it's not meant to be taken seriously.

    Poor in content, form and substance, Paranoia: Happiness is mandatory involuntarily inscribes itself in the list of games that certainly do not bring the video game closer to the traditional role-playing game, but rather that underline the extreme differences and limits of the medium with respect to the characteristics of the paper versions.

    A powerful background and some good ideas are not enough to save Paranoia: Happyness is Mandatory from being a missed opportunity.

    In contrast to its source material, Paranoia: Happiness is Mandatory is a bland RPG that is as slow as it is forgettable.
