Virtual Stupidity is 'The Secret Of Monkey Island' with Beavis
and Butthead in it. Point and click, solve puzzles, play a few
simple arcade games. Essentially an episode of the TV show you
Like, uh, you like wander around, and, uhhh, do stuff? You like, uhhh, pick stuff up and, like use it and stuff. Like to solve puzzles and crap. Then you like win. Dumb-ass.
Actually quite a good interpretation of Mike Judge's little angels, Virtual Stupidity is fairly engaging and does feature all of the characters from the show, as well as unbelievable amounts of voice. It is rather picky of me to wish that the voice was more variable, performing a given action elicits only one response. It would have been nice if doing the same action twice could have produced a new result. This would have provided a replay value to the game.
Virtual Stupidity features some nice little antisocial arcade games, such as spitting on people from a great height or burning insects with a magnifying lens. Beavis and Butthead themselves are well represented, and are at their usual peak of mental verisimilitude.
Essentially, if you love Beavis and Butthead, if you 'get'
what the show is about, you will probably enjoy the game. If the
idea of piloting two useless, revolting piles of human excrement
about their daily aimless wandering fails to appeal to you, the
Virtual Stupidity will probably seem to Suck. Huh-huhhhhh Huh
