4cr Review - Strong Bad Episode 4: Dangeresque 3

4 Color Rebellion: "Longtime Strong Bad fans should remember the Dangeresque, the Strong-gang's homemade buddy cop franchise. This episode puts you right into the fray as the characters put together a third entry of the series. What is Dangeresque? Think James Bond meets Michael Bay mixed with an unhealthy dose of 70's exploitation film. Yes, it's both that bad and that awesome.

The action-movie storyline gives the developers a chance to mix things up a bit. Other than short scenes capping both ends of the episode, you are right there inside the movie. What does this mean? For starters, there are a bunch of new locations (which are admittedly the old locations dressed up with low-budget set pieces) to explore. Is also means that the general pacing is dramatically faster. Adventure games tend to be slow cerebral affairs, but action movies never stop moving. To reconcile the two polar extremes, this episode picks a spot in the middle. You'll still be solving puzzle after puzzle, but the structure of this episode seems to be a bit more focused. You don't really spend a lot of time moving back and forth between locations and you never really have to decide which goal to tackle next. It's more of a straight line from start to explosion."
