UH, HUH HUH HUH. HEH HEH HEH HEH. America’s leading morons, Beavis and Butthead are home watching the tube. There is an announcement of an upcoming GWAR concert that’s coming to their town. The object is to gather all the ticket pieces so that these two numbskulls can go to see GWAR in concert. Choose Beavis or Butthead. One leads the other follows, each has their own unique weapon (Beavis burps and Butthead farts). To keep themselves healthy, there are supplies of nachos, soft drinks, and other forms of junk food. In order to find the pieces, you must help these two search their favorite haunts from Burger World to the Turbo Mall. They can select where they want to go by using the TV remote. As long as all the pieces are found, they can go anywhere except the arena. Watch out for danger though, which runs the gamut from policemen to runaway shopping carts.

If burping and farting aren’t enough, they can pick up other weapons to dispatch their foes. You can switch the lead character, especially when the health of one starts to get really low. You may also change weapons and munch on nachos to build up strength. Some money spending is also involved. If things really become ugly, they can always warp themselves back to their couch.

Okay, I can say that the characters are well drawn. I wish I can say as much for the rest. Control is horrible. I found it difficult to fight and make selections - very frustrating and not smooth at all. The sound was only slightly better. The introductory music sounds like an out of tune keyboard. The programmers should have had more of their one liners sampled into the game. If you are a hardcore fan of these two, then go get it. Otherwise, don’t rent it and definitely don’t buy it.
