Background: Picked up during the summer sale for pennies. Apparently it's an upgrade of a 2008 DS game with improved visuals and audio, part 2 was never released but you can complete the story on youtube via officially released cinematics.

The Good:
* Great story and plotting that mix things up
* Characters and voice acting are fantastic
* Self-aware quips make the characters stand-out
* Fun mix of gameplay styles show depth right from the start

The Bad:
* Looks dated, the pixelated cut-scenes especially
* Awkward controls for interacting with characters but you get used to it
* Mismatched lipsync is distracting
* Combat is simplistic and weapons lack impact
* Half a game that stops just as things are moving

Impressions: Looks dated with low-rez cutscenes, awkward controls and mismatches mouth to voice work.. but in the first 10 minutes I was impressed by the story-telling, characters and gameplay. Reminds me of the first time i played Sam & Max.

Recommended for: Noire detective fans who don't mind some run n gun n puns.

Conclusion.
7/10. Shines through its limitations to be memorable and a lot of fun.

I would recommend then game, it is cute, fun and interesting.
But as a warning there is no other parts
ask the wiki stats
"The PC version was to be released as two downloadable episodes with a retail version following soon afterward, but the second episode never materialized due to Gamecock being acquired by SouthPeak Games in 2008 and the latter deciding to cancel the inherited title"
it was later released on the DS as a full game, heavily scaled down.
"In order to complete the story for PC gamers, Crackpot expressed a desire to upload the cinematics for Part 2 (as well as Part 1) on their official YouTube page, "

A film noir homage in the vein of Pixar and Dreamworks 3D animated movies that combines platforms, action and point & click mechanics with uneven results. It plays as a Nintendo Gamecube title featuring: a colorful and charming art style; a jazzy soundtrack and better voice acting than some triple A titles. Unfortunately, Insecticide Part 2 was never released; so you're left with an incomplete story and an unfinished game.

So the game itself is pretty decent and VERY much reminds me of the amazing Psychonauts BUT sadly this is only the first half of the game, meaning it has no conclusion. Because the game HAS no ending i really can not recommend, also the combat is rather bland, sadly this game will never be finished :(, it had a lot of potential to.

Pro:
Good story
Good voice acting
To me it's a fun looking game
Inexpensive
Low system specs needed

Con:
The controls just aren't good
After a while it just isn't punny anymore ... it's irritating
Cut-scenes are sub-par ... even for this game
Short
Incomplete since part 2 is DOA

Overall:
If you can get this for $2 or less, give it a try.
I got more than $2 worth of fun out of it.

I'm only 9 minutes in and I've probably encountered about a dozen insect puns.

It doesn't bug me at all.

I have no idea why this game gets such bad reviews. I had a lot of fun with it, never expereinced any bugs, played it to the end, and was really impressed overall. Is it a AAA-quality title? Of course not. Is it a very inexpensive, fun little hybrid action/adventure game with clever dialog, fun story, and good-enough gameplay. IMO, yes!

Really the only problem is that the game is only Part 1 and there will apparently not be a Part 2.

Being a platform-shooter/point-n-click detective game it is interesting to say the least. I picked it up for cheap during the holiday sale soley based on the fact that it kinda looked like Psychonauts and I have a soft-spot as well as a hard-on for platformers. Unfortunatly this game completely comes off as unfinished and under budget. It has the means to be an ok if not a good game but the bugged controls, fairly crappy graphics (ESPECIALLY during cutscenes), and flat out lack of quality sadly pretty much ruins it. Coulda, shoulda, and probably woulda did things differently if they could have, maybe if someone tested and polished it, maybe, who knows. Definatly worth trying if you can get it cheap (I got it for $0.74) or if you like point-n-click puzzle/detective games...

There is no Part 2.

Part 1 isn't bad, is actually pretty decent...but the fact that you are only getting half a game will bug you.

Come on guys all of these bug puns ant gonna fly 'round here; you moth do better.
Seriously wasp's the point of hating this game? It's un-beelievable.
The bee character kept droning on and on at some points.
Driving the Volkswagen Beetle was fun.
Great soundtrack including Bee-toven and Sting.
The bugs got into great anticks.
And such a great game? Long time no flea.
It's pretty great.

This game has definitely gotten a bad rap by it's reviewers, but I actually liked it a lot. The plot and acting is decent. The platforming parts are kind of bad, but the adventure game ones aren't, and it feels kind of Beyond Good & Evil-esque.
The worst part is that the publisher decided not to release the second half of the game for PC, which means you either have to buy it for the DS (with inferior graphics and cutscenes), or watch the second halves cutscenes on youtube, where the developer uploadet them: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL963FBBF618092865

Yes, this is only half a game. The 2nd act got cancelled when the original publisher has gone under. Insecticide's full release happened only for the DS.

Nevertheless, the soundtrack alone is worth Insecticide's price on Steam. Not an exaggeration! You liked Grim Fandango's stylishness? - all the people responsible for that game's art direction are back for this one. The combination of crime-fighting action levels and investigation-based adventure levels simply works. On top of that add the kind of humor that could have been given birth only by the collaboration of Space Quest and Curse of Monkey Island designers.

Insecticide is an old favorite of mine, because I like those hard-boiled flat-foots with a dose of humour. "Don't worry, kid, it's just an exosceleton wound." All in a day's work in the Insecticide Division.

Gameplay-wise, Insecticide isn't much to write home about: it has sequences that are third-person-shooter with platforming elements, part action adventure game where you need to investigate a crime scene (and how to get the precinct coffee machine to produce the kind of coffee that Roachie likes), and lots of cutscenes. None of that is particularly difficult. The game does show its age, what with the low-poly models and the low-res, video, but who cares?

The writing and the voice acting put Insecticide far above and beyond your average shooter. The character designs and the jazzy soundtrack support the game well. So even though it's never been a triple-A title (nor any kind of A, come to think of it), I'll gladly replay it once in a while (e.g. when it comes up in a Steam sale), just to hear Chris Lizt say, "Stop, or I'll shoot - some more!"

(The only disappointment with this game is that part 2 never came out. Insecticide has no Steam achievements.)
