Product Description

Insecticide is a hard-boiled, fast-shooting detective game set in a festering future city where bugs have evolved as the planet’s dominant race. A murder at the powerful Nectarola soft drink company leads police from the Insecticide Squad on a bug hunt through the city’s seedy underbelly, and into a mystery of epic proportions. Join Detective Chrys Liszt and partner Roachy Caruthers on the case as they become entangled in a web of crime in this 3rd-person shooter/detective game. It’s an action-adventure in the truest sense of the word, immersing players in cinematic combat levels, as well as a story-based detective investigation. Use Chrys’ unique insect abilities, a range of creative bug weaponry, and old-fashioned street smarts to solve the case and uncover a shocking secret, ultimately bringing the mighty boot of justice down hard on the city's infestation of crime.

4.0 out of 5 stars Action a little buggy, but still fun for all. March 27, 2008
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Insecticide is kind of a subspecie, part action/platformer part point and click adventure. Sounds good? Well, read on.

You start off in a dystopic future where insects have become the dominant species. You're officer Chrys Lyst, a young female... well, whatever you are, with your grisled detective partner, Roachy. He serves as narration and provides most of the old cheesy detective movie dialogue, which I have to say actually grows on you and is quite charming. The story involves the murder of an insect and conspiracies that I won't spoil for you. If you've ever watched a buddy cop movie with a serious plot then this will be pretty similar, only with bug-puns.

The point and click segments are superbly done and handle well on the DS. However, the action sequences might be a bit too mishandled for gaming veterans. Chrys moves a bit like an SUV with a cork gun, turns horribly and always shoots too slow. The thing is that if you aren't used to fast paced action games this won't be a hindrance. Adjusting to the system took me maybe a half hour of game time tops. Also I should mention that the game's color tones are very dark and if possible it should be played on a DS lite which has a brighter screen then original DS.

Parents might want to try this one out first if they aren't comfortable with the themes. I am pretty sure that everything sounds worse on the box and in my review then it really is in the game (After all it's rated E10) but each kid is different and that should always be considered. I'd say early teens and up especially those that enjoy the Pheonix wright series or CSI games would love this, as well as adult fans of LucasArts previous P&C adventures.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun Adventure Game for DS July 22, 2008
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
A decent game fun little adventure game. I just bought a few new adventure games for my DS and I really looked forward to this one. This adventure game, however is not a favorite of reviewers - for good reason. The game is a hybrid adventure game and platform game in one, and the graphics are quite plain in the platform section. A great game this is not.

While this game has its flaws, the adventure portions are quite good and engaging. The look is similar to a Japanese phone game and plays like one too. For me, the adventure portions are simple and alot of fun so if you want a fun little game for on the go entertainment here you are. Flawed but easy to play on the go. Just put up with the platform portions of the game.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hidden Adventure Gem for DS April 27, 2012
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this game since Crackpot Entertainment was formed by ex-LucasArts employees who worked on some of the most memorable PC games of the '90s. Insecticide shows its roots immediately, because the adventure gameplay and cast of colorful characters is very reminiscent of classic LucasArts adventure games. The writing and dialogue's both sharp and witty. The gameplay can be a little troublesome and tricky at first, as it melds adventure portions with action combat portions, but the player will ease into the controls after a little bit of play. Insecticide is a game you buy for the story and experience, not so much the moment-to-moment gameplay.
