The video game you twits
19 November 2002 | by See all my reviews

Almost every other viewer seems to be confused...this is the game made for the PC a few years back.

Anyway, it was quite ingenious (if a little straightforward) and involved going through a few of the main set pieces of the film, doing a few things per scene (hard to explain, but it pretty much amounted to a lot of point and click), then returning to each screen to collect several items, such as "bodice of a virgin" and "Sir Gawain." At the end of the game you were rewarded with an awesome cut scene from the movie. Apparently, it was only scripted (might have had voices laid down as well, but I'm not sure), and was presented at the end of the game for the first and only time. Best of all, it was Gilliam-esque animation.

Other than that, the best part of the game was all of the mini-games you could find scattered throughout the game. These included "Drop Dead," a Tetris-style game in which you dropped plague-ridden corpses into a big pit/grave; A "Sorry"-style game of witch burning; and everyone's personal favorite, "Spank the Virgin."

If you weren't a big Python fan, the game's novelty would wear off rather quickly. However, if you love the revolutionary humorists as much as I do, then you'll find yourself immersed in hours of fun.
