Sam and Max : The Devil's Adventure Game
15 September 2010
Conclusion: Let's face it, you play these games more for the writing than anything else, and Telltale has proven time and time again that they are at the top of the heap when it comes to witty dialogue, and this season of Sam and Max is no exception.

Excerpt: The first two seasons of Sam & Max, whilst excellent, suffered from repetition in their locations and jokes, which towards the end of their course made them feel somewhat lazy. Playing around with the formula however and mixing in new mechanics, locations and such, Telltale Games have done an admirable job with keeping this third season fresh throughout and, because of this, The Devil’s Playhouse is unquestionably the best season of the dog and rabbity thing yet.

Excerpt: The second episode of this third season of Sam & Max finished on a rather sombre note, in which Sam returned to his little buddy Max and found that he had had his brain removed, leaving a flapping scalp and a hollow head. Obviously, Sam, with a dark mood, sets out to find out who the culprit is and to reclaim Max’s brain. The theme of They Stole Max’s Brain!

Excerpt: The first episode of The Devil’s Playhouse was a wonderful piece of episodic gaming. It was a fantastic start to the third season of the silly, American pop-culture sniping Sam & Max games, and I enjoyed it so much that the second episode couldn’t come soon enough. Luckily, Telltale’s traditional monthly release set-up meant that it wasn’t a too lengthy period to wait.

Excerpt: Through Xbox Live Arcade I quickly grew fond of the suit wearing dog and the naked, hyperactive rabbity thing, better known to the world as Sam & Max respectively. The previous two seasons were made up by crazy situations and characters, with such a silly level of humour that, at times, I found it difficult to keep a straight face. I was therefore delighted when Telltale Games announced this third season.
Conclusion: The Devil’s Playhouse is probably as good as adventure games are going to get without a drastic rethink of the way they work. It’s why I’m looking forward to seeing how Telltale deal with a franchise like Jurassic Park, which looks to be a move into more action-oriented territory with less emphasis on the comedy that has been the hallmark of point-and-click games for their entire existence.

Summary: The third episode of Sam and Max and it's a homage to Film Noir. It's atmospheric, it's funny, it's raining. It's everything you want a gritty cop drama starring a dog and a rabbity thing to be. The middle act of this season is, I think, the best yet. And I can't wait to see how it plays out.
