PALGN: Sam & Max: The Devil's Playhouse - Episode 1: The Penal Zone Review

PALGN writes: "After two seasons worth of episodic adventuring, gaming icons Sam and Max return in Telltale Games' latest love-letter to the resurrected genre, Sam & Max: The Devil's Playhouse, a five episode season destined to take players on a journey through the bold, bizarre and downright baffling. The first episode in the series, The Penal Zone, arrives in the aftermath of the developer's own exalted Tales of Monkey Island, and is therefore burdened by the highest of expectations. The downloadable point-and-click-style adventure title also marks the dynamic duo's debut on the Playstation 3 console and Apple's iPad, so it is no exaggeration to say that Telltale Games have much to prove with The Penal Zone; but does it deliver on the laughs, imagination and devious puzzling which are the hallmarks of the series?" (PC, PS3, Sam & Max: The Devil’s Playhouse, SAM & MAX: The Devil's Playhouse - Episode 1: The Penal Zone) 8.5/10
