Despite its placement in the genre here, Totally MAD is not an educational title (unless you count Snappy Answers to Stupid Questions educational). It is not even a game. It will, however, give you hours of humor from "the usual gang of idiots". Totally MAD is a 7-CD collection of EVERY mad magazine from 1952 till 1998, it also has some neat video clips and animations as well as audio clips from the various freebies they gave out over the years. |
All content on the CDs is scanned in high detail and is all printable as well. The fold-ins are even "virtually foldable". Totally MAD also includes a wonderful search engine, enabling you to search by year, features, subjects, artists or writers. You can select any issue by finding the cover you remember as well.
You view the strips with the Veeblefetzer, and get information on various comics and "articles". You can also rotate the scans (so you don't need to stand on your head or turn your monitor upside down). Each magazine comes with a full table of contents so you can just go to the desired page if you wish. Lastly, you can bookmark your favorite strips for later reading.
All in all Totally MAD includes hours and hours of MAD reading material and for an affordable price. My only wish is that there be "add on" CDs to add to this already great collection. Two thumbs up, way up!
