Review # 30 for Psyco2000
Them's Fightin' Words
    Blah. Thats all I can say to describe this game. It has so many upsides and downsides that it all just sort of evens out. The Story? Run with me on this, okay? A tennis player got a free pass to the Feregan (I think I spelled it right) Deodorant Factory one day, slipped into a vat of chemicals, and became Powerstick Man! A superhero that, quite literally, hurls deodorant at his enemies! That's the upside! The game is intelligent, creative, and funny as it gets! Items are well used and in generous supply. Money is easily earned, and npcs can be found almost anywhere. Everything was obviously well thought out. There's lots to do, and the maps are large enough to do it in.

Of course, now we get to the downsides. The maps are TOO large. Enemies are mostly rats, all of which are the same picture, only different palettes. Enemy and hero graphics are generally ugly, (with the exception of junkyard Bob and the blobs) and poorly done after the junkyard. And it gets way too hard after the south road. Even if you fought everything that moved, you wouldn't be at a high enough level to take on the Shadow Boss!

All the music is ripped. And when I say ripped, I mean RIPPED! Gonna Make You Sweat(Everybody Dance Now) haunts the first level, Another One Bites the Dust plays during most of the battles, and Smells Like Teen Spirit plays for your victories. Other notables are Danger Zone, and one I swear I've heard, but can't place my finger on it. Basically, I know all the songs on this game, and like most of them, but BAM format doesn't do it justice. Look, I'm not saying it's a bad game, it's just that to call it a great game would involve a horrible misuse of the English languge. Fortunately, it's a demo, so all this is fixable. If you can get past the dull and never ending intro, you might just find SOMETHING you like. I like the humor!
Final Scores
Graphics: 2/10.0
There are some graphics that are great. Most, however, are just too ugly for this to earn a higher score.
Storyline: 10/10.0
This is one of the best storylines I have ever read! In fact, this and the very well written dialogue is the only reason I [ didn't say I disliked this game. ]
Gameplay: 3/10.0
It's dull.
Music: 5/10.0
All ripped. I have to admit, I'm kinda biased. I would have given this a lower grade if I didn't like these songs.
Overall Grade: C+
Final Thoughts
    Not bad, but not great. It's worth a look for the story and humor, if nothing else.
