Poorly Made and Incomplete

This is a 3D platformer which had me bored in minutes. It is not captivating at all and the platforming is some of the worst I've ever played. Shooting is repetitive and the world's blandness becomes apparent after a few minutes. I could barely make some jumps at the weird angles given, and only after many tries. To top it off, the game is incomplete and is only part one.

So-so

Part 3D platformer, part point & click adventure. Its action parts are a little repetitive, and the adventure puzzles aren't really as good as it could have been either. The end result is an odd game that really doesn't do well in either aspects. The only thing that's going in its favour is the humourous story and setting.

Oh the game is also incomplete, since this is only part 1 and no more were released (for the PC at least), so the game basically ends just as the story is picking up steam. Too bad.

A platformer/adventurer

Insecticide didn't live up to it's looks. I really liked the artstyle it was going for when I have seen it first, but this is not another Psychonauts.

While the story and writing is quite good, the gameplay does not give any challenge, and it's also not really good at what it does. Platforming does not require any precision, and action sequences just serve as a reason to unload your weapons at something, but not much thought has gone into these encounters.

Visually the game is still charming though, while not too impressive on a technical level (remember, the game came out in 2008), the style is still nice. Music isn't anything memorable sadly.

If you want to experience the game, the only redeeming quality is the story.
