After being pleasantly surprised by Virtual Stupidity, I was optimistic for Beavis & Butt-Heads Do U, their next point-and-click adventure released in 1998. This time, the haplessly horny high schoolers go on a field trip to a nearby university. Naturally, they think tertiary education is all about scoring chicks and when they hear about a party, they figure this would be the place to do just that.

Graphically, the game is a bit of a mixed bag. It looks crisper than the first game with some nice 3D rendered cutscenes when you enter certain areas, but for the most part, the locations look a little sparse and unpopulated. The screens are now wider that your monitor which scroll when the cursor is placed near the edges, but the composition and staging look weird on occasion. Even the animation suffers at times too, with stilted dialogue and often perfunctory sentences. With the exception of some well executed puzzles, it's an overall lesser, dumber, and more offensive experience.

Like I said in my Virtual Stupidity review, I'm not exactly the biggest fan of Beavis and Butt-Head, but I do enjoy the subtle satire of that game and the movie that came out at arond the same time. Remove that, and all you're left with a couple of vulgar over-the-top reprobates trying to be funny. That's what we're left with here. No hidden indictment on gang culture or school heirarchies. No subtle statement on social structures or the class divide. Just a couple of oversexed teenagers harassing everyone - and everything - with mammaries. It left a bad taste in my mouth, and that is entirely down to the poor base-note writing.

When it comes to puzzle design, though, it's actually very good. It's slightly more difficult than that other game but still on the easy side. You have to collect check marks from each department before you are allowed to join a uni frat party, and each department head needs convincing before you can go. For example, the Agriculture department needs you to milk a cow and collect some chicken eggs. It's not long before the duo will realise that a bull is not a cow, and that an egg fight will actually smash what you're after. I won't give away how it's solved, but lets just say Beavis gets bitten and trampled before he finally gets to squeeze some teets.

Beavis and Butt-Head Do U is not without merit, but I can't say its to everyone's taste. The noticeable difference in quality could be down to moving production from the now defunct gaming division of MTV's parent company Viacom New Media to The Illusions Gaming Company (who did a much better job with Duckman and Blazing Dragons - also on this site). Regardless, I suggest you play Virtual Stupidity over this, unless you're really a fan of lurid, baseless humour.

  1. Now, I am not sure if it is because of the undecrypted file in the Mega, but this isn't installing because of "VOICE\N10A084.WAV" is corrupt or unreadable.

    1. That would be it. Undecripted files are a pain as they dont show up on Mega's user page. I'll sort it out now.

    2. All good! File .d02 is now up and checked. Thanks for letting me know.

    3. Had to do minor tweaking, telling it to run in Windows XP Service Pack 2, but after that, ran beautifully after the fix on the missing file. Thank you so much for this!!!

  2. Getting an error saying "CRC Failed: VSO\Install-VSO.exe" when extracting the zip folder..

    1. That would be an issue with your download. Mega zips up the files of the fly when you want to download everything at once. If you're having trouble this way, try downloading each of the 3 files individually.

    2. Yeah I figured it out, Biff, thanks! .. My only issue is that the game crashes back to the desktop right near the end of the game and is therefore not able to be finished.. :p

    3. Sorry to hear that. I managed to complete it, but if you could give me more info as to where it happened I might be able to replicate the issue and figure it out.

    4. Apologies for the delayed response.. It happens right after you finish the party in the gym, speak to the frathouse guard and then head to the dean's office and use the floor buffer.. Basically the game kicks me out to my desktop with no error messages of any kind.. I tried numerous times yet still get the same issue.

  3. I'd also like to see the minigold game Bunghole-In-One, the trivia game Weiner Takes All, and, of course, a collection of the console games (which could also include the Amiga fangame Breaking the Lawn).

  5. It will not run for me. I added the registry entry, but then get an error saying: "Unable to run the game. Your video hardware and/or drivers do not support 640x480 High Color Mode."

    2. What did you do? I keep getting the same message'

    3. You have to run the game in compatibility mode "Windows XP (Service Pack 2)".
      I hope this will updated to installer, because it's not working without it.
