SEGA Master (Sep 27, 2009)
Ok, I am going to state this categorically. This game should be in the top 20 Master System games. The only reason it is not as far as I am concerned is because it is pretty uncommon and as such was never likely to be voted in any top 20 lists. I honestly cannot fault it in any way. The presentation including when you lose, and also when you complete the game is amongst the best for the system of ANY game. So to answer the original question, is it worth the time and effort finding Ren & Stimpy - Quest for the Shaven Yak? A resounding yes, take a week off of work and book a flight to Brazil if need be! You'll thank me for it! :-)

If you love the TV show, you'll enjoy this video game conversion. If your sense of humor isn't quite that twisted, go buy some other cart and leave us alone.

Stop watching the reruns and play this one! Sega's first R&S game is very fun, and it, like many recent THQ games for Nintendo formats, ably captures the feel of the cartoons.

In advanced stages you'll contend with a few cheap hits like roving stormclouds and creatures obscured by rocks. Still, you can detect and avoid most hazards (like falling stalactites) by moving cautiously. It helps that you get a lot of lives. Ren and Stimpy have three each, and you can switch characters between stages. I like how your score is tallied after each stage, and the game has a slick password feature. Quest for the Shaven Yak doesn't try too hard but much like the cartoon, it has a quirky, easy-going style that proves endearing.

On connaissait les conversions de films, de bandes dessinées, voilà donc celle des dessins animés. Sur GG, c'est nouveau. Ou presque. Mais ce n'est pas pour autant que c'est une réussite formidable. Loin de là. Il y a mieux sur cette portable. Cherchez un petit peu... Pour moi, c'est tout vu : Ren & Stimpy est plutôt lassant.

Anything less than a splendid game is a disappointment and a let down for a pair like Ren and Stimpy.
