GamePro (US) (Feb, 1994)
Stimpy's Invention plays better than the SNES game (called Veediots) and it captures the humor better than the Game Gear version (Quest for the Shaven Yak). If you're looking for something fast and funny, the Stimpy's Invention, is right on the money.
Digital Press - Classic Video Games (Dec 24, 2003)
Overall, Stimpy’s Invention is well animated, colorful, and delightfully entertaining without being overbearing. If you are a fan of these two, (I am!) find it and buy it. It’s definitely worth the (discounted!) price. HAPPY HAPPY......JOY JOY!
Game Players (Feb, 1994)
Even though it has its problems, it's still true to the cartoon - although it's way too short. Still, you'll really laugh at the variety of crazy, kooky moves the pair can pull off.
Consoles Plus (May, 1994)
Un jeu de plates-formes scolaire qui ne se démarque que par son humour bien gras. C'est un peu léger.
Electronic Gaming Monthly (EGM) (Dec, 1993)
Ren & Stimpy is terrific for the Genesis. It's faithful to the show and the animations are enough to make anyone laugh (especially the Giraffes at the zoo and the Beaver Power). It's only real downside is the Two-Player Mode, which is more aggravating than fun. Using another player as a tool can be fun, but it's control lags. Ren & Stimpy can be a lot of fun, but word of advice - you should play alone.
Mean Machines (Mar, 1994)
Smarter than the average licensed tie-in. Ren and Stimpy is far from original, but has the necessary playability in stacks. Nowt special, but worth considering.
Sega-16.com (Aug 31, 2006)
Overall, Ren and Stimpy is a fun little platformer that's worth the few bucks you'll probably find it for. There's nothing that really stands out, even though the double-teaming is a nice touch and I liked the graphic look, but in the end you'll find yourself wanting more. You EEEEDIOT!
ASM (Aktueller Software Markt) (Jun, 1994)
Warum soll immer nur einer leiden, sagten sich die Erfinder der englischen Zeichentrickserie ‘Ren & Stimpy‘ und suchten sich das Mega Drive als nächstes Opfer für eine Versoftung aus. Diesmal allerdings ist ihre Rechnung, das Game so schlecht wie die Show zu machen, nicht aufgegangen, denn Stimpy‘s Invention schlägt den ersten SNES-Titel um Längen.
GameCola.net (Jul, 2003)
If you like the Ren and Stimpy Show, and you like side-scrolling games, and you own a Sega Genesis, there's no reason to not purchase Stimpy's Invention. It's fun, innovative, and can be beaten in under a half-hour. That last point, though, can be seen as the game's downfall, as some may feel cheated out of their money by playing such a sub-lengthy game. But if you have a friend with which to play, the experience is nonetheless fun. The game's cheap, anyway. Just buy it already. Well, after reading the rest of GameCola :-D.
The Video Game Critic (Aug 14, 2005)
Frankly, the control scheme is so confusing that you can't predict how the pair will react to your commands. And it's even worse with two players! The jumping controls are far from responsive, and the stage designs are as annoying as they are unimaginative. You'll battle bizarre creatures like eyeballs and blue chickens as you explore a neighborhood with giant cracks in the sidewalk, a freezer, a dog pound, and a zoo. There are scattered references to the show (like Powered Toast Man and Mr. Horse) but these are token appearances. There's nothing to get excited about in terms of graphics, although I do like how the game adopts the same visual style as the show. The scratchy voice samples ("get on with it man") are hard to stomach, and the music is utterly generic. Did Sega really think they could sell this garbage on the strength of the Ren and Stimpy name alone? Those stupid eediots!!
