"Over the last few weeks most of the games I have been reviewing have been good or at least not bad enough to justify what we in the ghetto used to call, 'getting my knickers in a twist'. And since I've just received my modest tax refund, my tension has been slowly rising from not having enough to be angry or miserable about. So thank you Clive Barker, thank you for this opportunity to unwind by calling your game a spunk flavored lollipop."
Tell us, is it you who are here
For our good cheer?
Or are we here for the glory
For the story
For the gory satisfaction of telling you how absolutely awful you really are?

Helga: This is the stupidest thing I've ever seen.
Big Bob: I know. It's horrible!
Helga: Finally, we've got something we can hate...together!
Both: (laugh hysterically)
Audience members: Sssshhhh!
Both: Aww, pipe down, ya weasels! (continue laughing)
"I watched it in mounting gloom, realizing I was witnessing something historic, a film that for decades to come will be the punch line of jokes about bad movies."
"So why play Captain Novolin if it's so bad? Because it's fucking hilarious. This is basically the game equivalent of a movie like Judge Dredd or Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo. It's so bad that it's really, really funny. Between the stupid sound effects and the quote, 'Tengo Diabetes', Captain Novolin is hard not to laugh at. That's the only justifiable reason to play it."
