Sam and Max is a moderately funny click adventure game that features a bunny and a dog as detective. The puzzles are simplistic, the humor is simplistic. If you are looking for profound dialogue and/or puzzles, you will not be finding it in season one.
I was not too surprised to find out that Sam and Max, like most other click adventures, have no re-playability. However, I was surprised to find how dull episode 1,2,3 is in this series. The three episodes are chock full of simple fedex delivery puzzles with esoteric solutions. Good luck solving them without a walk-through. Luckily the game does pick up it’s pace by episode 4, and the game took a turn for the best. Puzzles solutions remain esoteric, but the results of solving the puzzles can create quite amusing consequences. You also will not remain stuck at your boring ♥♥♥ apartment block which is a plus!
Telltale nailed the voice acting in this series. Intentionally annoying characters have intentionally annoying voices; you will feel like punching the screen every single time the soda poppers talk. Humor is not universal, so the jokes in this game can either strike you as “ROFL” quality or downright immature. Luckily none of the jokes are nearly as stupid or overused as the ones you find in Duke Nukem Forever.
I recommend this game solely on the basis that’s a very well polished click adventure with a unique brand of humor. It’s not immersive or challenging, but it does make for a fantastic change of pace in between long sessions of Elder Scrolls, Counter Strike, DOTA 2, etc.
