Reviews for Sam & Max: Season One

70

A great throwback to late '90s style point-and-clicks

Great series, great humour... if you're into that kinda oddball, quirky stuff. The controls are a bit awkward at times, and I had to use a walkthrough to get past a few ridiculous puzzles, but I had loads of fun. Really loved the various characters in each episode. You don't need to be a fan of the comic or television series to appreciate them. Each episode takes roughly 2 hours to finish and they're all quite different from the last, especially Reality 2.0. Probably best to wait for a big sale to get the complete pack.

If they were real detectives, we would all be in trouble.

Sam and Max made their glorious return from the LucasArts years in this first modern adaption and extension of their story. It is well worth the wait. Telltale did a perfect job in writing the story for season one, making Sam and Max the Arrested Development of adventure-puzzle games. The story, given where it is coming from, is strange, (War! What is it good for?) but that is the glue that holds the series together. It's hilarious and outrageous from the kid-gang sodapoppers to the strange and airy Hugh Bliss. Each episode brings a different scenario, but small pieces of each episode lead up to the ending, using every character as they go. The series needs to be played episode by episode to get the most laughs and entertainment pertaining to the story, but that is no problem seeing that every episode is original, entertaining and a pleasure to play.
