Another Beavis & Butt-head game from GT, and thank bejeezus it's a good 'un. Unlike the terminally boring Bunghole In One, Beavis & Butt-head Do U both playable and enjoyable, and the simple point-and-click adventure-style of play befits the nature of the television original. Written by Mike Judge himself, DoUis a hilarious enactment of a high school college visit - a place where, according to Beavis, the hapless duo will be able to "make it with naked college sluts". All the voices are right, as are the graphics (even the rough edges), and as you play through the game you feel as though you are in charge of your very own TV episode.
At the start of the tour Beavis and Butt-head are subjected to a seemingly endless speech from a boring college lecturer, and are not allowed to leave the hall until he's finished speaking. Escaping quickly is of paramount importance, because if you're trapped there for too long you become annoyed by the droning speech (when Butt-head says "Dammit, this guy is pissing me off. I wish he would just shut up or something," you can't help but empathise). The solution is pretty obscure, but fairly easy to suss out because the game is not particularly complex. Actually, it's idiot-proof - simply left-click to use/talk/exit, and right-click to examine. That's about it.
Once out of the lecture hall the game opens up. Butt-head gets a map ("Wow, a map. Let's use it to find something that doesn't suck.") and is told to collect eight 'sign offs' (proof that they've visited the entire college) before they are allowed to continue their preoccupation with 'naked college sluts' at a party that night. The ensuing chaos is truly hilarious, although the game itself is not particularly ambitious. MTV may have stopped making the programmes, but Beavis and Butt-head still live on in computer games. And for that we should be truly thankful.
