Game Revolution writes: "When your livelihood and reputation are based on mocking videogames, it takes guts to open yourself to the same sort of ridicule. Yet with a title like Penny Arcade Adventures: On the Rainslick Precipice of Darkness Episode One, that mockery apparently comes from within. It deftly translates Penny Arcade's oddly hypnotic blend of lowbrow subject matter and subtle wit into video game form, and combines it with role-playing gameplay that, while not incredibly deep, is entertaining and tactically engaging by removing some bloated RPG conventions.
I would describe Penny Arcade's style of humor myself, but this is the Internet, so check it out yourself if you haven't already. The comic's style makes the transition smoothly - the style of humor, the art style and the in-jokes are all here... only less free."
