IGN: Sam & Max: Season Two Review

Setting aside the issue of humor and character, the Sam & Max series is still married to the standard adventure game format. Players will enter a scene, look for items to use, use those items and then progress to the next scene. There's a fine line between paying homage to tradition and just going through the motions and, perhaps because of their focus on humor and story-telling, the developers here seem to be relying on a less inspired sort of puzzle design. Things definitely got better by the end of this season, and IGN hope that trend continues into the next batch of episodes.

If you haven't played the Sam & Max games yet, Season Two is a great place to start, and the new DVD is priced to move.
