If you’re a fan of the adventure genre, then feel free to let Stupid Invaders assimilate your Dreamcast for a while. It’s a fun, well-produced, adventure title that puts an emphasis on humor and style, though it sacrifices some depth of gameplay and difficulty in the process. In terms of its target audience, Stupid Invaders is a bit raunchy, but nothing kids couldn’t handle if they’ve already absorbed enough Loony Tunes or Power Rangers. Teens will probably derive the most enjoyment from the potty humor, while adults may just simply shake their heads in dismay. Despite this sophomoric approach to adventure gaming, the sad truth is that this once mighty genre is hard to find on any system. Stupid Invaders does more than enough things right to satisfy fans of the genre, and with its great graphics and sound, it even excels where other titles make their most sacrifices.

But when all is said and done, I had fun with Stupid Invaders. Sure it lacks the polish of a finely crafted Lucas Arts adventure, but it's still a fun little game. So to reiterate: If you like point-and-click adventure games AND immature, lowbrow toilet humor, Stupid Invaders is a must-play.

Stupid Invaders ist definitiv eines der lustigsten Spiele, die es jemals gab. Von der ersten Sequenz bis zum Abspann kommt man aus dem Lachen nicht mehr heraus. Auch technisch ist es über jeden Zweifel erhaben und glänzt durch einfallsreiche Hintergründe, nette Musik und eine Sprachausgabe, wie man sie normalerweise nur aus Filmen kennt. Die Story ist so abgedreht und witzig, dass viele Zocker das Game in ein oder zwei Sitzungen durchspielen werden. Leider sind die Rätsel viel zu einfach und der Umfang ist geradezu lachhaft. Genre-Profis werden das Ende nach weniger als fünf Stunden erreicht haben. Was bleibt, ist das Gefühl, einen sehr guten und unglaublich komischen Zeichentrickfilm gesehen zu haben. Ob das den Kaufpreis rechtfertigt, muss wohl jeder Zocker selbst entscheiden.

Gaming Target (Jul 16, 2001)
I enjoyed this game from beginning to end. Mainly just because of the humor and the anticipation of what the aliens will say next. Overall, this game isn’t as bad as some people make it out to be. I would have to say that it is worth its lower price tag that stores are selling it at now. If anything, at least rent this game on a weekend where you have the time to beat it.

Les jeux d'aventure sont très peu représentés sur console, Stupid Invaders est donc l'occasion de vous initier en douceur à ce type de soft. Je regrette cependant que l'aventure soit si courte et que certaines énigmes soient d'une simplicité déconcertante. Sinon c'est du tout bon.

Planet Dreamcast (Jul 12, 2001)
After reading the issues that I had with the game, don't be fooled with my overall impression of the game. I really enjoy playing Stupid Invaders. With the graphic adventure genre not having many games this year, and the declining number of games being released for the Dreamcast in general, Ubi Soft deserves serious praise for releasing this game on the Dreamcast in the US. It was a very fun, if short, experience. If you are a fan of the genre I recommend that you pick this game up, and for the other Dreamcast players I recommend that you give it a rental before you buy.

IGN (Jun 29, 2001)
As delightful and funny as Stupid Invaders is, the main flaw is the lack of replay value. You can only play the game over and over again so much before all the funny sequences are memorized. Furthermore, I'm not a huge fan of this genre for one major reason; there's little depth involved in these games. The puzzles aren't that clever as they usually involve finding the right item for the right situation. Still, there's something to be said about the laughs you get when you watch our Stupid Invaders in action.

Gamezilla (Aug 01, 2001)
Stupid Invaders is a game I’ve played through once, and will likely never play through again. While it was mildly entertaining in the beginning, with a good use of CGI to portray the cartoony characters, the shine wore off of the package after the second “let’s solve this problem with high strength acid!” joke. I might suggest this as a rental if you’re really bored and have a lot of time on your hands. However, for the rest of you, I’d skip it and avoid the horror of the Santa Claus scene.

The Next Level (Sep 04, 2001)
While I certainly enjoyed the experience Stupid Invaders offered, it's unfortunately short-lived and its fault lies in the lack of replay value. Plus, there's not enough interaction (there's so many objects which would've made the game more exciting if they were accessible). In all honesty, you can only play this game but so many times before you're simply tired of playing it. Perhaps if the game featured some hidden levels, or the puzzles were randomly generated with some new surprises, much like the way ESP did with the dungeons in Evolution, then perhaps returning to this game again would have some warrant. Unfortunately, once you've been through all of the puzzles (even if it's just to see the failure sequences), Stupid Invaders provides very little depth and it's very linear.

GameSpot (Jul 11, 2001)
Despite its impressive graphics and excellent voice acting, the simplistic and monotonous nature of Stupid Invaders' gameplay manages to drag down an otherwise entertaining experience. For those who fell off the point-and-click adventure train after Myst, Stupid Invaders doesn't offer anything new to rekindle your interest. Fans of puzzle games with an appreciation for dark humor will likely enjoy Stupid Invaders, but a three-day rental should be more than enough time to extract all the fun.

Defunct Games (Sep 23, 2006)
To be totally blunt, Stupid Invaders is not really the kind of thing you'd expect to find on the Dreamcast - it's actually more like an early PC game, and for that reason it's hard to recommend. On the flip side, it's quite an interesting little title and for the same reasons is something collectors should track down if only for the novelty value.

One could possibly forgive these flaws if the game had an enjoyable quirk factor, but it delivers nothing of the sort - unless you're developmentally impaired and still think the mere process of going to the bathroom is absolutely hilarious. For those of you who don't bust out laughing every time you whiz, spend your gaming energy elsewhere.
