    Great disfigured corpse of Anthony Hopkins deep fried and served with a side of monkey brains! Sam and Max are a blast!

    If you’re in the mood for a game far more funny and cerebral than the norm, Sam and Max Season One is a great choice.

    This game not only faithfully extends the entertaining Sam & Max franchise, it elevates it.

    This mind-boggling video game will make you squeeze your brain until you get the solutions for the puzzles.

    I admit, I am not a big fan of point and click video games. I'm more of the action and adventure type who would prefer WASD keys. But this game is one of my personal faves. The cartoony visuals are o...

    Great game to make you think a little when solving puzzles and good voice acting.

    I played all of the old Sam & Max games and this one is just as good. Good one liners and hidden puns throught. Good storylines and easy to play. This is a good mostly mindless game where you c...

    Sam & Max: Season One May Disappoint Old School Fans

    Rated on November 03, 2008 by Drale08

    The original Sam & Max was loved by fans for its raunchy humor and sly wit, but Telltale's version is watered down and disappointing. When I was younger I played Sam & Max: Hit the Road and couldn...

    Demonstrating episodic content potential & bringing old-school adventure back into mainstream,Season 1 is must-play

    Rated on August 01, 2010 by lightwarrior179

    Sam and Max, the wacky detective duo, make their return after 13 years in this top-notch old-school adventure. Instead of a cohesive adventure, the "season" plays out in forms of six episodes which ...
