Penny Arcade Adventures: On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness has a title that is immediately indicative of the brand of humour you'll find throughout. The writing in these games, courtesy of Penny Arcade writer Jerry Holkins, is everything you'd expect, but unfortunately you'll have to put up with a turn-based JRPG of sorts to see much of it.
In Ep 3, the developer, Hothead, has been dropped in favour of Zeboyd, and the accompanying total overhaul of the gameplay provides a much needed change of pace.

The long-delayed sequel. Gone is the ability to make your own character; you'll be playing the PA guys the whole game. Also gone are the 3D polygon graphics and animation, replaced with SNES-esque sprites and tiles. This would be a big step back in some ways, but fortunately, the combat makes up for that. It's got some ideas borrowed from other games (like Grandia and FFT A2), and some new ones. The classes are also pretty interesting, and offer some good combinations. Fights are less plentiful than some games, but still relatively common, and the enemies are tough, so they can take a while.
I was annoyed by the fact that, if you stick with the same classes the whole game, you won't wind up with all of them capped out. To explain further, you start out with no class equipped and quickly gain your first set, then later get another set and the ability to equip a second. There will still be leftovers, however, and unequipped ones earn less exp than selected ones. Add in 2 more factors: the number of fights (and thus exp) in the game is limited (monsters don't respawn), and there's a bonus dungeon that can only be unlocked by maxing out all the classes. You can see how this would be frustrating, to finish the game and be stuck with no way to get into the bonus area. Now, there is an arena where you can fight stuff, but I'm not sure if they give much exp. Might try this later on.

I didn't play the first and second games and I got this one for "free" ( I think it was a humble bundle or a promo).
It took me a long time to actually start playing it (I usually don't get immersed easily in 8-bit game, so I was putting it off a bit but WHEN I DID. My god. The humor, the sillyness. The plot. It's jut great.

10/10 would buy if I didn't get it for free.

I'm a little disappointed in this game. I truly am. The previous Penny Arcade games, in their 3D environment, semi-free-roaming capabilties, witty dialogue, character customization, and comic book-styled cutscenes were excellent, but this one...
I just can't bring myself to keep playing. It's become a 2D RPG-stylized game, and though it started out pretty alright, the required battling, which for the most part, is every enemy you see on screen, really started to bore the living fecal matter out of me. It was just too much. Between every fight, you regain all your stats fully, so there's really no urgency of healing, which could be taken as a blessing, but...I don't know...I felt less imersed in this game, less dedicated to the characters and outcome. Sure, the dialogue is witty, for the most part, but given the lackluster gameplay and visuals...it just wasn't fun. I would've rather just read a comic book with the same style and written dialogue without the non-stop RPG fights chewing up my time and killing me with boredom.
I'm genuinely sorry for not enjoying it more. I look forward to the next installment of Penny Arcade and hope for the best.

This game was a whole bundle of enjoyment, playability and laughs for me. Essestially it is an rpg with 16-bit graphics. You can play it straight (well as much as this crazy game allows), or embody the madness. It pokes fun at the genre and at itself. Really it's what you might expect from Penny Arcade. If you don't know what PA is, i recommend you check it out, and get this game too, it's worth it.
Btw if you're interested in a more detailed review, i recommend you check out the one written by MinervaMedica, which is a true belter of a review, congrats Minerva. If you happen to get to this review at all, that is.
Enjoy the game!

Prosta gra przygodowa z elementami RPG. W porównaniu do innych prac studia brakuje czegoś i nie umiem wyrazić czego

PA3 takes a different approach than the first two games, but it still manages to keep the humor that drew me in to the series. Overall the game is pretty linear, but for a game that takes about 8 hours to clear I wouldn't expect a ton of exploration.

I rally like the battle system used. It is a nice twist on the standard turn-based system and the extra power of interrupts when in the "sweet spot" add a nice layer of complexity to something that could easily become boring.

Zeboyd takes the rain-slick series in a new direction, with outstanding results. Penny Arcade is more suited to this style of game than the first two installments. The battle system here is also an improvement. I consider this the apex of the series, since the battle system change in episode 4 isn't quite as good.

Que dire... J'aime bien ce jeu. Il est bourré d'humour, bien ficelé, original... Rien que les classes optionnelles sont très drôles. L'univers qui ne cache pas sont côté rétro est très appréciable. Du délire en barre avec une mission bonus tout à fait valable.

Bon, il est trop court et trop linéaire, mais vaut mieux une petite tranche de délire qu'une grosse part d'ennui!

Sur ce je vais me faire la suite sans attendre.
