In the end, Suicide Guy is a surprisingly goofy romp through the dreams of a typical slob. The story isn't the deepest, but it gets points for subverting expectations and not being a cliche. The variety of level designs and clever methods of completion are refreshing. It provides a fun little challenge without becoming a chore.
Suicide Guy is not the disaster we feared it would be, and in places it's actually rather funny. The title's randomness stops its campaign from getting stale, and there are actually some cunning puzzles here that are fun to solve. Despite all of that, though, it's quite a disposable game that's fun while it lasts but will be quickly forgotten.
There's fun to be had in Suicide Guy. There's a nice variety of situations and environments and exploring each stage can be a blast. The technical problems are what ultimately drag Suicide Guy down. Still, if you can get past the bugs and glitches, there's a nifty little puzzle game waiting for you on the eShop.
While it has genuinely great moments, Suicide Guy has a few too many bugs as well as being incredibly short. The physics themselves don't always work as they are supposed to, a definite issue in a physics puzzle game. Not a bad game, but not a good one either despite it's high points.
