Sam & Max: Beyond The Alley Of The Dolls Review - Alternative Magazine Online

It isn’t that the storytelling is bad per se, rather that the grandeur of the storytelling is hampered by some poor design choices. This has been a much darker series for the detective duo, a change of direction that I actually applaud. Yet to therefore have them exploring generic locations such as a dock, a lab and many recycled areas from previous episodes immediately makes the sense of satisfaction gained through exploration and discovery plummet. It is only near the end that our interest perks back up as we finally get something fresh and new on screen… but by that point it may be too late. (PC, PS3, Sam & Max: Episode 4 Beyond the Alley of the Dolls, Sam & Max: The Devil’s Playhouse) 6/10
