Hey Beavis, this game rocks! Huh Huh Huh!

I've always been a Beavis and Butthead fan, watching it on MTV all the time it's on. As soon as B+B was released for the Sega Megadrive (Genesis), i just had to purchase the game. Wanna' know how this one draws? Find out in my review, huh huh huh, of Beavis and Butthead.

Graphics
The graphics are totally sweet, looks exactly like watching the cartoon. Beavis and Butthead both look ultra-realistic, as well as the other characters you come across. The places you visit, such as the Hospital, A Mall and other places such as Burger Bars, they look realistic too. Nothing looks bad graphical wise, totally cool. Everything looks damn cool and realistic, do i need to say anymore?

Sound/Audio
Once again, pretty cool. The music from the series is in the game, which i could listen to for hours and hours (i'm actually listening to it right now, while writing this review). There is a few other samples of music, or so i think, but i've heard it when you go to certain places. Beavis and Butthead both talk realistic obviously, which definitely adds that ''extra something'' to the game. The other people in the game really don't say anything, it just comes up text and reads what they're saying, like the older Final Fantasy games ;). Won't bother you really though. Some other cool sounds featured in the game too. For example, if you get bit by Tom Anderson's dog, the dog will make a fierce, growling dog noise, as well as biting your head off too. No major problems.

Gameplay
Simply great. You'll be playing for hours, and won't be able to come off the game. It's one or two players, and if you play on two player, it's still good. On Two players, one of you controls Beavis, and the other controls Butthead, obviously. If you play on One player, you can play as both. For example, you can switch between characters while in the game, so Beavis or Butthead will still be there, right behind you. The controls are easy, you only need a few buttons, seeing as it's a Genesis game. No complaints about the controls. The game is ultra fun if you're a Beavis and Butthead fan, but still fun if you're not a fan of B+B. You can visit tons of different places, such as a Mall, your School, a Burger bar, Hospital, the street and a few more which i can't remember :). The only problem is, if you die, you lose all your items and parts of your GWAR tickets which took long to find, so you'll have to completely restart it again. But i guess it'll be too easy if this wasn't the case. You won't turn it off anyway, you'll be so addicted to playing. There's tons of stuff to do, you could be playing all day. A great positive on the game.

Story
Well, a basic but affective story. Beavis and Butthead wish to go to a GWAR concert (i personally don't know who the hell that band is), but your tickets get taken away by Tom Anderson's dog. The dog then pukes up the tickets and Tom Anderson himself squahes them with his truck-kind-of-thing, and they're all in pieces! You now have to locate all the other pieces of the tickets, and get them all together like it's a jigsaw puzzle. See what i mean by a simple story? Still pretty funny though, but they could have a better music band than GWAR, i don't even know who the hell they are!

Replayability
Hmm, pretty alright i guess. If you complete it, there isn't really any point in playing it again. But you can, for hours of fun :). Pretty average i guess, no major complaints. I'm guessing, even if you've finished the game, that you'll pick it up once more and say ''I want some more fun'', then you'll play it for a few more hours. You won't stop ;).

Buy or Rent?
Seeing as Megadrive (Genesis) games are hard to pick up nowadays, if you see this on sale somewhere, definitely buy it. You won't regret it, and you'll be proud to have Beavis and Butthead in your Sega Megadrive collection (as well as having tons of videos of B+B, come on, admit it :P). Definitely, 100%, BUY!

------------------------

Beavis and Butthead is one of i'm proud to own, and one i still play today. It's such an excellent game, one you should definitely play and have those hours of fun with. A MUST for your Megadrive (Genesis) collection, total thumbs-up.
Overall: 9/10
