Game Shark (Dec 03, 2008)
Dangeresque 3: The Criminal Projective is hands down the best Strong Bad game in the series so far. It has a few blemishes, but they are overall inconsequential. It’s highly entertaining, fun, and finally fulfills Homestar Runner fans’ long-time wish for Strong Bad to complete the Dangeresque series. The best part is that, since none of the episodes are connected in any way, you can skip Baddest of the Bands and simply bask in the awesomeness that is Dangeresque 3

Every episode of Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People has offered up some great fun. If you've already paid your full subscription, get to downloading Dangeresque 3 right now and enjoy the best episode yet. If, for some strange reason, you are on the fence about committing to this series, this is the episode that will hook you.

Video Game Generation (Nov 17, 2008)
The SBCG4AP series has established itself as another standout adventure game franchise from Telltale, and Dangeresque 3 is a genuinely funny (and timely given the recent release of Quantum of Solace in theaters) spoof of the spy film genre. The only downside here is the loss of what little difficulty and cleverness the puzzles in Baddest of the Bands had, but that’s hardly a reason to pass up this episode.

IGN (Nov 17, 2008)
Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People has been consistently entertaining, and Dangeresque 3 is another great graphic adventure. This episode is more cinematic, and while I love the minimal Casio tunes of the previous chapters, Dangeresque's more ambitious spy soundtrack is aces. Both Telltale and Homestar creators the Chapman brothers have really taken the time to craft the games that Homestar fans want to play. If you aren't one of those fans you'll probably be pretty lost here, but few licensed games get this much TLC.

Cheat Code Central (Nov, 2008)
Dangeresque 3, the episode and the low-budget movie, is a great surprise. It takes the game in an unexpected direction, offering another round of fresh variety to keep the standard point-and-click adventure mechanics from growing tiresome. Many who’ve been following the series from the beginning will find it’s the best episode so far. However, it’s likely to be unseated by the fifth and final episode, 8-Bit is Enough. It sounds like Telltale is pulling out all the stops to deliver the goods in the season finale. The appearance of Trogdor will no doubt signal the burninating apocalypse. SBCG4AP has had a strong run this year, and it provided a pleasant respite during the downtime for Telltale’s other beloved adventure game.

Nintendo Life (Nov 17, 2008)
Dangeresque 3 is pretty much just like the previous episodes of SBCG4AP – not too long, but fun while it lasts. This episode is a bit different from the others in that it actually finally successfully delivers something the website has been promising for over 4 years. With lots of funny dialogue and memorable moments, such as thwarting the invincible Killingyouguy in a car chase and defeating an amazing CGI monster, this is easily the best episode yet in the series. Let's hope the series finale is even better!

Strong Bad Episode 4 succeeds in appealing to a variety of audiences, and ultimately offering a worthwhile way to spend a thousand Wii Points. If you're a fan of the previous three episodes then you've probably picked this up already, but if you're among those that have been holding off on the series thus far you can rest assured that there's enough universal humour here to appeal even to those who only know Homestar Runner as "that thing on the Internet with the weird looking characters."

Gamervision (Nov, 2008)
Is it too soon to ask for Dangeresque 4? This most recent episode has restored much of my faith in the license, one that I felt was strangely being wasted by misdirected game design. Whatever issues Telltale faced early on seem to have been addressed, and the polish of this episode shines through the past few missteps. The teaser for the next episode, 8-Bit is Enough, looks to be even better, and thanks to the success of Dangeresque 3 I’m eagerly awaiting it.

More than any previous episode, SBCGFAP Episode 4 does what the best web cartoons do, which is provide a highly amusing storyline and imaginative visual humour; but, it also suffers from some of the same problems as the cartoons do. Unlike previous episodes, Dangeresque 3 feels loose and unstructured, with a vaguely connected series of events leading to a somewhat unsatisfying conclusion. The change of pace and tone is refreshing and the concept has been very well realised, but in a fairly unchallenging adventure series, the penultimate episode is the least taxing of all.

The sheer directorial dedication Strong Bad lends to “Dangeresque 3 turns what could have been a regular Cool Game for Attractive People episode into a well-integrated synergism between comic and videogame.

1UP (Nov 21, 2008)
Maybe it's just the nature of an episodic series like this, but I find myself less and less interested in the actual play mechanics with each new installment, as the sometimes inane puzzle solutions and trial-and-error approach to adventuring can be tiring. This episode's retro-stylized minigame, Space Circus Catastrophe, is actually pretty fun to play, tasking you with blasting space clowns while rescuing circus performers and evading rogue pieces of food. Sadly, after losing its interactive status in Baddest of the Bands, the Teen Girl Squad comic is now completely missing from Dangeresque 3. Despite that questionable omission, Telltale's crafted an episodic experience so consistently charismatic that the bizarre humor and whimsical situations largely outweigh any minor annoyances. Let's just hope the season wraps up nicely in the fifth and final episode, 8-Bit is Enough.

Gamekult (Dec 08, 2008)
Sans aller jusqu'à dire que Dangeresque 3 est idéal pour découvrir Homestar Runner - car pour ça, rien ne vaut le site internet du dessin animé originel -, on peut tout de même affirmer que cet avant-dernier chapitre de Strong Bad est le meilleur sorti à ce jour sur WiiWare. Reste à voir si le final fera mieux.

Anthony clearly saw something in Dangeresque 3 that I didn't, and I'm glad for that. I've been rooting for the SBCG4AP series all along, if only because its amazing that a character from a web cartoon is now the leading man in a game on a major console (and yes, I'm rooting for the Penny Arcade games just as much). With that in mind, I will gently excuse myself from the world of Dangeresque 3 with hopes to never to return. Even the funniest people in the world bomb occasionally, and you can't deem a friend to be unfunny just because they have an off day every now and again. For me, Dangeresque 3 is that off day. I think it's best for both me and Strong Bad if we just try and forget this whole thing ever happened.

Adventure Gamers (Nov 17, 2008)
The most fan-centric entry of the series so far, this ultra-easy episode feels more like a lesser product of the buddy cop genre than a parody of it, and the episode is less funny as a consequence.
