If only it could head back and redo the puzzles as easily as Bill Murray wooed Andie MacDowell.
Randal's Monday has a clever premise that deserves better treatment than it gets in this crude, baffling adventure.
Randal's Monday's strict adherence to bad design and unpleasant humor makes this one Monday you don't want to relive.
The concept and writing will draw you in, while at the same time the ridiculous puzzle design pushes you away.
Fans of old adventure titles, crude humor and excessive pop culture references might find some value here, but most would be better served with better adventure games.
Fans of Kevin Smith's work will be just as disappointed as adventure game fans, and players in general will do well to avoid this one.
Point and click adventure games are not for everyone and Randal's Monday is not without some flaws but there is no denying this game has plenty of redeeming qualities.
An entertaining comedy adventure, but too many of the puzzles in Randal's Monday are too far from even its own internal comic logic to really make sense. It's a fun ride, but it's also liable to frustrate if you refuse to use any outside help to solve this time-travelling puzzler.
Randal's Monday has many things going against it, but fans of Clerks, Jeff Anderson, and unrelenting geek culture references will find a hardcore point-and-click adventure with plenty of storyline to justify its $25 price tag.
Randal's Monday is a great gem of a game. While the puzzles can be extremely challenging and misleading (who thought drinking rat poison was a good idea?), they're fun to try and mess around with. Thankfully Randal will point out directly how dumb some requests are, keeping you from feeling too confident in yourself about your puzzle solving skills. Combining that with the pop culture and humor and it's a great adventure game.
