Beavis and Butthead in Virtual Stupidity

Beavis and Butthead in Virtual Stupidity (Viacom New Media) is a thing of great and terrible beauty. Join the boys as they break out of school and wreak havoc around town, leaving a trail of idiocy and destruction in their wake. The ultimate goal is to impress the local bully, but there’s fun to be had along the way: videos to be watched, games to be played (hocking loogies, throwing tennis balls, and more), logic puzzles to be solved, girls to be ogled. You control whether B&B look, touch, walk, or speak. The disc is easily as full as any interactive storybook, and challenges the user to be resourceful: like the show, it’s extremely dumb, but with smart writing. It is, in fact, exceedingly faithful to its source material. Mike Judge provides the voices, and all the fine nuances of character suggested in the program are fully realized here. Touch the Bunsen burner and it is, of course, Beavis who tries to stick his hand in. Interrogate the Circle K’s owner about the whereabouts of the bully, and Butthead takes the initiative. He is the smart one, after all. This is one CD-ROM that doesn’t suck.

– December 1995
