Am a little fifty fifty on this one, I personally didn't enjoy it that much although there was some fun moments. The game itself is not that bad, neat graphics nice audio simple gameplay it is exactly like the cartoon series homestar runner which I personally didn't watch. I found it more for kids than adults but at some moments it needed a little bit of head scratching to figure out what to do, I admire the creativity of the developers in some areas. I would definitely recommend this game if you're getting it for your child or you're a fan of homestar runner the cartoon series, its price in the sale is very good, other than that you need to be careful finding it childish and hating on it.

If your a Homestar Runner fan, get this game. If your not a Homestar Runner fan, watch all the Strong Bad Emails (by the way there are 204 episodes of Strong Bad Emails), Everybody to the Limit, and this years april fools toon. THEN get this game. Every episode is like a really long interactive sbemail (Strong Bad Email) and I love it! If I were to choose my favorite though it would be a tie between Strong Badia the Free, and Dangeresque 3: The Criminal Projective. I hope very much they would make a Season 2. In Conclusion, this game was worth every penny out of my dad's credit card.

Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive people is a ncie point and click game. Each episode is very unique. As an adventure game you may find yourself stuck at times. Other times I swore up and down I had done everything then I redid everything and it turned out I didn't. If you like the webseries Homestar runner there's a lot to love here. You learn a lot about the characters and they're each well represented and voiced. The games aren't exactly hard, but more on the average scale. Poking around for missed items and clues will sometimes yield a special item. I don't remember if something special happens when you collect them all but you might get an attaboy. The only collectible quest I really tried on was one with Teen Girl Sqaud because you could make your own TGS comic where you kill them all. They're also voiced. It's not really like Telltales' more recent efforts, it's closer to the Sam & Max series. That probably sums up whether you'll like this series.

I'm not a Strong Bad fan especially (though I enjoy the flash games on the site), but having just finished Episode 1, I have to recommend this game. It's a pre-TWD Telltale episodic adventure, set in the wacky town of Homestar Runner. It's funny, the puzzles make sense, and it's overall a blast to play.
An excellent game for anyone who's a fan of the Homestar Runner universe and old-school point-and-click adventure games. If you like either of those things, this game is definitely worth it. Otherwise, you could probably skip it.

Telltale Games joined forces with Videlectrix to use computers to make video games, and their collaboration brought us the coolest guy on the internet since 2000: the one and only STRONG BAD!
(Kids, ask your parents who Strong Bad is!)
But I digress: Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People captures everything from the Homestar Runner universe that we all know and love. Strong Bad checks his emails. He pesters everyone. He kicks The Cheat. He plays his Fun Machine. Coach Z has that weird accent. All that good stuff.
The first episode has Strong Bad ruining Homestar's reputation, then having to undo all the damage. It's a good start to the game, with plenty of funny dialogue, decent puzzles, and of course, plenty of in-jokes everywhere. Not everyone may understand the jokes or references, but there are plenty of Homestar Runner cartoons on YouTube you can watch to get with it all. Telltale went all out to assure that the game would perfectly capture the look and feel of a H*R cartoon, and they didn't disappoint.
Also, don't forget to make a Teen Girl Squad comic. Because this game is getting ready to look... SOOOO GOOOOOD!!!
As I have now actually completed all five episodes of Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People: Season 1, I can give the game a proper review instead of just saying that it's a cool game for attractive people, even though, you know, it kind of is.
First of all, we'll get this out of the way: Unless you are a fan of the Homestar Runner universe, there is a probability that you won't enjoy this game. It makes endless references and jokes related to the series that you wouldn't understand unless you've seen some of the episodes in question. That isn't to say that you shouldn't buy it just because you might not understand some of the jokes though, either way this game is extremely funny and the humour is very dry, as you would expect from a game where you're controling Strong Bad.
This is what you would expect from a typical Telltale Game, it's a (mostly) point and click adventure with clever and satisfying puzzle solving which ultimately turned out to be a lot of fun. The puzzles make sense, the controls are simple (though sometimes a little clunky) and the dialog is hilarious. The gameplay is relatively simple and easy to get into, some mini-games and particular inventory items help to break things up nicely so that it doesn't feel too repetitive. There are a total of five episodes for Season 1, all of which are relatively short but sweet, I'd estimate that they take around an average of 3 hours each to complete.
I really enjoyed my time playing this, and while it may not be to the taste of a number of people, I defintiely recommend it to those of you with a good sense of humour, whether you are a fan of the Homestar Runner series or not, episodes 4 and 5 were particularly excellent and stood out the most to me among the bunch, especially in the humourous department.
Lastly, the standard sale price is a little bit steep for the amount of gameplay that the game offers to you overall so I would recommend buying it while it's on sale. Either way, you'll get your share of laughs playing this game.
This one is one of my favorite point-and-click adventure games. And it's made by Telltale Games and the guys behind the Homestar Runner website. You control the main character and main icon of the show Strong Bad as you destroy people's days, the Strong Bad way. 5 episodes are made, including the long awaited Dangeresque 3. Give it a try if you're into point-and-click adventure games and Homestar Runner cartoons.
And for the PS3 users, I recommend you should play the entire season of this game for plenty of trophies and achievements.
