2/5- A collection of mostly failed attempts at jokes.
For the record: I will only be reviewing Ctrl+Alt+Del after the reboot that it had near the end of 2012, so my review only reflects the comic after that time.  The comic is a video game themed gag strip about four color-coded characters named Players 1, 2, 3, and 4.  It updates 3 times a week and involves swearing and some explicit content.
What Makes It Awesome
Overall this comic doesn’t have a lot going for it.  For one, it’s a video game gag strip, a concept that is extremely overdone in general.  The particular execution of this concept by Ctrl+Alt+Del in particular is particularly poor, however.  Most of the strips’ punch lines are either simply a reference to a game that is lacking in a joke entirely or involve an extremely crude or unoriginal joke.  This adds up to a comic experience that generally falls flat.  The art, however, is quite consistent and is of a relatively high quality.
My Thoughts
I am honestly not a fan of the new Ctrl+Alt+Del.  I feel that in comparison to other, similar video game humor strips, it is overall worse.  I can’t honestly recommend the comic to anyone unless they really want to read another video game gag strip.
