''Sam & Max: Episode 205 - What's New, Beelzebub? is a ridiculous game. It is an off-the-wall menagerie of goofy and absurd ideas, all of which have been smashed together to form something resembling an interactive story. It offends much more often than it makes actual sense. In other words, it's a completely appropriate finale for the bizarre spectacle that has been Season Two.
The current incarnation of Sam & Max has evolved (or devolved, some might say) so far in the last year and a half, it is nearly unrecognizable from the early episodes. Crashing a reality television show? Stopping an evil toy mafia? It all feels like Mixed-Up Mother Goose compared to the atrocities taking place this season, and not only is the ante raised, but all the chips are pushed into the table for this episode. Looking for a unique and moderately offensive setting? How about hell-or Hell, LLC to be more precise. Want a bigger, better bad guy? How does Satan himself strike your fancy?''
