You can tell a lot of heart was put into the making of Insecticide. The graphics, sound, music, and overall presentation are well done. Crackpot Entertainment is composed of former LucasArts adventure team members and it shows. You can tell these people love the adventure genre enough to want to update it with action elements for the new generation. Unfortunately, the action segments of the game, while not terrible, aren't seamlessly integrated into the game which makes Insecticide feel like a mixed bag. The transitions between the action parts and adventure parts, or lack thereof, feel jerky and needs a more subtle implementation. However, if you love Pixar-type movies, action/adventure games, then Insecticide is definitely worth a look.
