"The gang at Penny Arcade can be quite acerbic when it comes to game criticism, but they likely won't have to worry about having any such remarks directed at their game.
After staring at screenshots of Penny Arcade Adventures: On The Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness, then even getting so close as to have the game played tantalizingly in front of me, I've finally been able to actually sit down and play it for myself. I'll save the final verdict for the review, of course, but for now I will tell you that its unique combination of point-and-click exploring and RPG battling works quite well.
And of course, it's laugh-out-loud funny."
