Stick It to the Man Review
Stick It to the Man is a really weird game. I first played this game on the Wii U and while I liked it alot, I also thought it was one of the strangest games I had ever played. Not everybody will like it. Stick It to the Man is for people who have an odd sense of humor and like stuff like Tim Burton movies and Bryan Fuller tv shows. And now Stick It to the Man is on the Nintendo Switch. Is the game as good on the Switch as it was on the Wii U? Let’s find out!
Stick It to the Man has an extremely weird story. If I told you about it, you’d believe that I was on drugs. You can’t make this stuff up. Wait. You can because the people at Zoink did! Yes, the story is that crazy. And yes it is a really fun and sometimes funny story too. Of course, your mileage may vary but I really like Stick It to the Man’s story. And it has good gameplay to go along with that story too!
The gameplay in Stick It to the Man is mostly an Adventure game, but there is a lot of jumping in this game too. None of the jumping is that challenging though. I think the developers just wanted to give everyone something more to do then just walk around all the time.
Stick It to the Man, though, is all about reading minds and planting stickers on stuff. The real challenge of this game comes from knowing which stickers to put on which person or object. The game won’t let you put a sticker on an object you’re not supposed to but that doesn’t mean that the game is easy. Just remember that those legs have to go on a “person”, not that trampoline. Hey, I warned you this game was weird.
The puzzle solving in Stick It to the Man is fun and challenging at times. However, I have one complaint when it comes to the Nintendo Switch version of this game. On the Wii U version of Stick It to the Man, you had the ability to grab stickers and thumbtacks with the touch screen on the gamepad.
On the Switch, however, there is no touch screen use. I thought the combination of analog stick and touch screen, while not perfect, worked better for this game than just using the buttons and analog stick. Without the touch screen, the controls feel a bit more cumbersome. The game is still enjoyable but I really miss that touch screen gameplay!
Even so, Stick It to the Man is a very good game and it looks even better on the Nintendo Switch than it did on the Wii U.
Stick It to the Man was a really good looking game on the Wii U and it looks even better on the Nintendo Switch. The graphics look excellent both on the TV and in portable mode. I still love how well designed the characters and environments are in this game. You will feel like you are playing through a Tim Burton cartoon.
And the quality of Stick It to the Man’s music, sound effects, and especially its voice acting will also make you feel like you’re playing through a Tim Burton cartoon. Just about everything in this game is really well designed: from the sights and sounds to the story. I do think the game’s controls could better, but players should not allow that to stop them from playing Stick It to the Man on the Nintendo Switch.
Stick It to the Man is a great game on Nintendo Switch. I do think that having no touch screen controls on this game was a missed opportunity and that the controls in general could be better, but that shouldn’t keep you from playing this weird game. The Wii U version has the better controls, but Stick It to the Man on the Switch looks better and its still a really fun game.
Thanks to Zoink! Games for providing a copy of this game for review. Stick It to the Man is now available on the Nintendo Switch eShop!
