Summary

Like the show itself, it's good for some cheap laughs.

The Good

I imagine that only viewers of the Duckman show have the most interest in playing this game. If that's true for you then you will appreciate how the graphics are as great (or awful) as the original show so that you will feel like you get to interact with the cartoon world you are so used to seeing on TV.

And just like the show, this game has plenty of the crude humor that we all can't help but laugh at...even if it's at the expense of those poor teddy bears.

The Bad

The game-controls are very limited and at times frustrating. The two options that you will usually get is a "thinking-Duckman"and an "angry-Duckman". Other options like "pick-up item" will only show up when you can interact with that item so that kind of spoils the fun since you cannot try to do a bunch of things to everything the way you would in other point-and-click adventures.

The Bottom Line

If you don't like the show Duckman, you will definitely hate this game. But if you like dirty jokes, teddy bears in a blender or a farting Grand-ma-ma, then this is must have!
