My Second Season with Sam & Max, Part 1

Okay, I admit it — I’ve been a lousy reviewer this season. It’s not Telltale’s fault! The Sam & Max Season 2 episodes have been good! But between traveling for work and Toy Fair and basic procrastination, I keep missing my chance to review the new chapters until it’s too late.

Well, not this time, bucko.

We’ve had a pretty good season up to now. There’s been more variety of locations and storylines, a few new characters, and lots of good gags. Just like last season, there’s generally been one puzzle per episode that’s stumped me for hours until I’ve finally slapped my forehead and said, “DUH.”

Another month, another Sam & Max episode from Telltale! These guys are like clockwork — which is more than I can say for myself.

My holidays with Sam & Max: Episode 2

Has it really been a month or so already? On-schedule releases were few and far between back when I was an adventure game junkie (and I’m led to understand they’re even rarer nowadays), but Telltale’s kept the faith and released the second chapter of their episodic Sam & Max series right in time for the holidays.

My Sunday with Sam & Max

Holy Hannah in a dilapidated breadbasket, Max, the Freelance Police are back.

Ever had deja vu? Not the really annoying kind where you’re vaguely reminded of something, but you’re not sure when or what or where. The good kind, where you’re taken back to another time, when computer games were free to romp and play and offer a player some good old-fashioned third-person non-combative story-based puzzle solving. That’s the kind of deja vu I had when I heard that classic theme start playing.
