Game Revolution (Jun 05, 2004)
As the instruction manual proclaims, "Beavis and Butthead are not the smartest guys around, but, with your help, they could become the coolest." The point of Virtual Stupidity is to walk around the town of Highland as none other than the duo themselves, meeting people from MTV's Beavis and Butthead show, picking up certain items that will aid you, and performing a variety of actions, that range from driving a tank, to breaking out of jail, to sending Beavis's hand into the anal cavity of a stuffed bear. Of course, all of this is done in hopes of being offered the exclusive privilege of joining Todd's (the local dropout, for those who don't watch the show) gang.

A real, no-foolin' graphic adventure with all the funny elements of the MTV show. You'll want a fairly fast machine, and gamers who don't have Win '95 are out of luck. Fans of MTV's delinquent duo will adore it, but people who miss the point of the show won't understand the game, either.
That’s assuming you like Beavis and Butt-Head, of course. If you think, as I once did, that they’re the most irretrievably stupid characters on TV, the game won’t do a single thing to change your mind. That’s probably for the best; if you don’t understand the appeal of the show, you’ll never make the connection between a condom and a gas station air hose -- and you’ll never finish the game.
All of the antics and idiotic events of some of the best episodes of Beavis & Butthead can be found in this title. References to "Chicks" and various parts of one, along with Beavis & Butthead's pubescent comments, scenes of Beavis constantly getting beat on by Butthead, Beavis getting kicked in the "NADS" or ridiculing someone is what this title is all about. Any B&B fan should not be without this title. It you have ever wanted to be one of these two fools, then this is your chance. Do you have what it takes to be Beavis & Butthead? If so, Viacom's got the Win95 title for you!

Το V.S έρχεται σε ένα CD και συνοδεύεται από ένα μικρό manual 20 σελίδων το οποίο αρκείται στο να δώσει τις απαραίτητες εξηγήσεις για το χειρισμό του παιχνιδιού. Αν ενδιαφέρεστε για ένα αυθεντικό αντίτυπο του V.S τότε πρέπει να το αναζητήσετε στο αμερικανικό ebay ( ή στο amazon (, καθώς το παιχνίδι είναι αρκετά σπάνιο στην Ευρώπη. Ενώ γράφω αυτό το review, υπάρχουν διαθέσιμα αρκετά αντίτυπα του παιχνιδιού, τα οποία δυστυχώς πωλούνται σε κάπως υψηλές, κατά τη γνώμη μου, τιμές (30-50 δολάρια , περίπου 20-35 ευρώ). Αν πάντως το πετύχετε σε χαμηλή τιμή σε κάποιο οn-line shop ή το βρείτε ξεχασμένο σε κάποιο budget pin, αξίζει τον κόπο να το προσθέσετε στη συλλογή σας.
If you're an adventure afficionado, or you're already a Beavis and Butthead fan, you'd probably enjoy Virtual Stupidity. If you're new to PC gaming, however, you might want to invite over one of your computer geek friends. I mean, it's really cool to hang with Beavis and Butthead, but losing sucks.

No matter how good something is, sometimes a lower-quality version is good to cleanse the palate. Sometimes a nice steak is the greatest thing in the world, and sometimes I just want a fast food hamburger. Sometimes I want to revel in some Vivaldi, and sometimes I just want the 1-2-3 blast of the Ramones. Sometimes I want to play Alone in the Dark, and sometimes I just need to have a dose of Beavis & Butthead.

Eigentlich ist Beavis & Butt-Head ja die Fernsehserie, die sich am allerwenigsten für eine Umsetzung zum Computerspiel eignet, denn der richtige Fan sitzt nicht knobelnd vor dem PC, sondern flätzt sich vor dem Fernseher und zappt alle fünf Minuten zwischen Viva und MTV hin und her. Trotzdem lohnt es sich, das Sofa mal zu verlassen und vor dem Rechner Platz zu nehmen: Virtual Stupidity ist nämlich ein richtig gutes Adventure geworden, das für dauerhaften Spielspaß sorgt. Die Rätsel sind zwar (bis auf wenige Ausnahmen) nicht allzu schwer (wer hätte das gedacht), aber das machen die bekloppten Sprüche allemal wieder wett. Die Umsetzung vom Fernseher auf den PC ist gelungen, Atmosphäre und Humor gleichen sich vollkommen. Lediglich der völlige Verzicht auf Hintergrundmusik ist mir unverständlich, gerade für Hard-Rock-Fans hätte sich leicht etwas passendes gefunden.

"Listen up, dillhole, don't be alarmed, 'cuz like Beavis and Butt-head will control the vertical, they will, um, adjust the horizontal. Heh, I said horizontal. Cool."
PC Joker (Feb, 1996)
Fazit: Man muß sicher ein Fan der beiden TV-Chaoten sein, um auch am Monitor Gefallen an ihren Späßen zu finden. Aber offensichtlich gibt es ja ausreichend Freunde von gepflegtem Brachialhumor im Lande, und die werden hier mit einem handwerklich verdächtig solide gemachten Silberling sehr ordentlich bedient.
PC Games (Germany) (Dec, 1995)
Beavis and Butthead: Virtual Stupidity ist sicher kein Meisterwerk, aber auch keine Totalpleite. Das Benehmen der beiden Ober-Loser ist destruktiv und wird jedem Weltverbesserer als Paradebeispiel für die zunehmende Verrohung der Jugend und die Verwerflichkeit von Computerspielen dienen. Wozu Beavis folgenden Kommentar hätte: "Bite me, Bunghole... Hehehe...!"
Wer eine schräge Alternative zu den Mainstream-Adventures sucht, wird von dem unflätigen Lümmel-Duett ganz drollig unterhalten. Die Action-Minispielchen entschädigen allerdings nicht ganz für die Zurückhaltung bei der Puzzlekomplexität.
The general verdict of Beavis and Butt-Head in Virtual Stupidity is as straightforward as the game itself: if you enjoy the television series (sorry for mentioning it so often), or just like that kind of juvenile humor, you will love this game.
Just Games Retro (Nov 06, 2006)
I actually did enjoy the game, though I suppose I expected the dialogue and events to be on the level of the best Beavis & Butt-Head episodes. They aren’t. I also think the game is dragged down by the lack of the TV show’s quick pacing. Instead of going from one joke to the next, deeper into trouble, and into a whole new story in ten minutes, you’re hearing the same dialogue over and over as you try to find the item or action required to proceed. Hearing Butt-Head call Beavis a “butt burglar” just isn’t funny the fifth time, when you’re already frustrated and wanting to move on. It’s a good concept, a great recreation of the show, and a solid adventure game. But it gives you too many opportunities and too much downtime to realize how much of a one-act these characters can be.
I'd call this mediocre. It's not annoying which is already a quality in itself. Playing it is somewhat fun. Just that I felt in the end that the game took me for a sucker, being already over and everything. This would have been a good 'first alpha version', a 'proof of concept' which could have been developed into a 'full' game.
