This was a total waste of time. If you are a die hard Birdman fan then i say just go rent the series on dvd. This game offered no challenge and played out like an episode with a couple of interactive parts.
This will be a quick review. If you love the show, you’ll love the game. It’s basically 5 - thirty minute episodes. It’s straight forward as it can get, there’s a case, solve it in the usual crude humor that makes this such a great show. There are no real bells and whistles to this game, it looks great and the gameplay is extremely easy. Can get a little frustrating when you can’t figure out what to do next, and has no real re-play value as once you solve the crime, there’s nothing else to do. I’m married with a 2 year old and knocked the game out in one Saturday afternoon mother-daughter nap. Great game to rent and send back, the reason Gamefly exists and is great.
If your a fan of the Phoenix Write games, and love the cartoon Harvey Birdman on [adultswim], your going to love this game!!
You take the role of Harvey Birdman, a washed up superhero from the 70's, who's turned to practicing law. And I do mean PRACTICING... Take on cases with fellow Hanna Barbara universe characters, and prove their innocence (or guilt) in the 5 cases in this game.
Although short, and not much replay value, this is the perfect game for GameFly! Rent it for a few days, play it, get some kicks, return it. Then go out and buy the DVD box sets of the series.
Graphics : 6/10 (based on the flash cartoon) Sound : 6/10 (all sounds and music are from the cartoon) Replay : 2/10 (only so many times you can play the same case before it get's boring)
final score - 4/10 A cult classic, I would suggest only getting this game if you enjoy the obserdity of the cartoon!
