Da New Guys: Day of the Jackass

Adventure Classic Gaming
3 April 2012
  • Excerpt: There are many plot devices used in adventure games which have become so prevalent that they have almost become clichés. Examples include ancient civilizations (like Atlantis and Egypt), secret societies (like the Knights' Templar), protagonists with amnesia, and the many generic entities and settings from the sci-fi and fantasy genres. Every once in a while, however, an adventure game explores a plot device that has rarely been used before.

  • Conclusion: Try as it might, however, neither the story or characters really manage to hit the heights of their competition, and Da New Guys ultimately comes across as a pleasant distraction rather than anything to trouble the best. It’s true that you might not want any more when you’ve finished, but it’s also not a game that you’ll be thinking about for any length of time either.

Da New Guys: Day of the Jackass (PC) Review

canadianonlinegamers.com
14 June 2012
  • Excerpt: Da New Guys was an indie game released back in 2004. Now a full-fledged sequel, Da New Guys: Day of the Jackass marks the return of Simon, Brain, Defender, and Smiley Joe in a new over the top adventure. Done in the classic adventure point and click style, you’ll be jumping into the comical world of professional wrestling, complete with obsessed fans…and jail breaks. Oh Brain, you’re so dumb and awkward even though your name implies otherwise.

Da New Guys: Day Of The Jackass Review | Ready To Rumble!

  • Conclusion: The Short Version: Da New Guys: Day Of The Jackass is a hilarious and satisfyingly cerebral point 'n click adventure game worthy of the genre's golden age. Sadly, it also sports graphics and art direction that would have looked dated and primitive back then. With a core gameplay experience this good, however, genre fans should get involved regardless.
  • Pros: Cerebral, satisfying common sense puzzling, Superb scripting, engrossing storyline, Brilliant voice work
  • Cons: Horrendous graphics and art design, A couple of weak and forgettable action segments
