Stick it to the Man! Reviews
Despite its awkward aiming and lackluster platforming, Stick it to The Man is a delightful puzzle game with a peculiar world worth exploring.
It can be a little inconsistent in terms of both actions and puzzles but late entry or not this is one of the funniest and best-presented adventures of the year.
Zoink!'s new game about a paper guy with a pink telepathic hand sprouting from his mind defies description, but it had us in stitches.
I reached the point of only sighing or shouting in frustration, despite sitting in front of a gorgeous-looking game with a ton of potential.
Stick It to the Man will make you laugh, and then it'll be gone. The game's short story and lack of additional content mean that this is a trip that you can take in a single evening – but its originality makes it more than worth the ride. Indeed, while this zany affair may be fleeting, its characters and dialogue will stick with you long after the credits roll, and that's reason enough to engross yourself in its wacky world.
Maybe Stick It To The Man is just a simple platformer with only slightly challenging puzzle elements that can be finished in a couple of hours, but thanks to its quantity and quality of humor and jokes, to me it was one of the best eShop experiences I've played on my Wii U.
Stick It to the Man is so much more than random insanity— it's also a delightful point-and-click-style adventure game draped in the wrappings of a platformer.
Stick It to the Man! is a unique experience that fans of quirky humour and adventure gaming will truly enjoy.
Stick It To The Man invites you into a world of cardboard streets, conjoined luchadores triplets and shady psychiatrists for just a few hours, but within that time are some of the funniest, most outrageous and original concepts seen on the Wii U to date. Its unique blend of psychic gameplay and surreal visuals won't appeal to everyone, but if you want to spend a free afternoon with something completely different then it's well worth a look.
For those who do enjoy something more obscure from time to time, what's on offer is a brief but relatively well-crafted title that incorporates several other sub-genres within it to create a weird and wonderful world.
Stick it to the Man will drag you into its grotesque and insane atmosphere from the start, offering you a fresh style of gameplay, never frustrating. To this we must add the excellent use made of the DualShock 4 and its speaker.

I adore Stick It to The Man, and if you enjoy the anarchic humor in Paper Mario and Psychonauts, I have a feeling you will too. It's a unique, funny, occasionally brilliant experience full of colorful characters and creative puzzles. If you like your entertainment quirky and featuring love-lorn balding yetis, pick this up. I can guarantee it'll stick with you.
I'm not sure what happened, but I can't ignore these bugs. They leave what is otherwise a great game, just good on the Switch. If you missed this on the Wii U, don't miss it again, but maybe wait until it gets a patch.
Stick It To The Man may be relatively short, a little repetitive and also generously simple, but it's also a unique and twisted take on a genre that's been around for decades. With its gorgeous 2D presentation and tongue-in-cheek humour, we'd happily recommend to any platformer fans who embrace everything oddball.
'Stick it to the Man!' was undoubtedly a pleasant surprise for me. I was somewhat familiar with the game when it was first released but knew very little about what it had to offer. It's always a treat finding an indie game that unexpectedly provides a better overall experience than some of the AAA franchises the video game industry has to offer. 'Stick it to the Man!' is just such a game. While not the most challenging game available, it will entertain you in ways other game developers should take note of.
The only real flaw of Stick it to the Man is that it's too short. While I don't usually mind short experiences, I was a bit disappointed to finish such a fantastic game in three hours and have absolutely no incentive to replay any level.
Although Stick It to the Man is fairly short, the unique gameplay mechanics and humorous nature of the game make it a worthwhile purchase. Fans of titles such as Psychonauts and Grim Fandango should definitely check this one out. However, those looking for a game to sink a lot of time into should look elsewhere. Forgetting the length and replay value, Stick It to the Man is a unique title full of harmless fun, which is more than welcomed in a world overpopulated by shooters and action games.
An enjoyable indie platformer with some nostalgic adventuring thrown in for good measure. The humour gets old real quick, but the neat visuals make up for it in style.
If you like side scrolling platform games then this is a must own.
