Summary: Not your run of the mill video game. The wit and humor throughout is enough to justify purchase! I am not amused by "cookie-cutter" video games where they reuse the same old plots and mechanics - while simply changing the graphics and sound. It was nice to see somethng original!
Summary: Talk about imaginations! I would love to meet the folks who write the scripts for Sam and Max games. I find myself laughing aloud, although I'm alone when I play. Just the right degree of difficulty, too. I'm always anxious to get to a new episode, but not in too big of a hurry. I don't want the fun to end. Bring on more!!
Summary: Sam & Max: Season One is a good game. ...For PC. The Wii Version Crashes alot, has glitches, graphical errors, and has a slow frame rate. The frame rate is really that bad. half the time nothing's moving, everything's just flickering.
Summary: When this game came out, it had been a long time since there was a Sam & Max game, or even a good adventure game released. And its top notch for sure! The Wii version seems a tad buggier than the PC version, but its still a great game. The only glitches are that occasionally, a character will get cutoff at the end of their sentence, but not by much at all.
Summary: I don't know, I'm not a programmer, so how difficult it is to port a point and click to the Wii I could not tell you but I wish a little more time had been spent cleaning it up. Frame rates can cause frustrating flutter if not freezing altogether for brief moments, dialogue gets cut off in the middle, Wii-mote can be difficult to move across the scene.
Summary: Despite the controls being a little slow and slightly buggy, I still found the humor very entertaining. The puzzles ranged from complex to silly to easy, so levels for all "Point and Click" fans. If you are a big Sam and Max fan and own a Wii then you need to place this game just for the sheer laugh value. If you are not familiar with Sam and Max and need more action in a game, then this one isn't for you.
Summary: I got Sam and Max for my wife, who has fond memories of playing point and click adventure games in the early 90s. I looked long and hard for such a thing on the Wii, and the search finally led me here. Basic premise - you control a dog, who goes around and solves crimes. You use point-and-click with the Wiimote to solve various puzzles and close the case. The game works well with the wii's controller, which functions almost as well as a mouse.
Summary: This game is kinda fun. And delivers reasonably good entertainment. Some of the jokes are funny. Some of the solutions to the puzzles are rewardingly bizzare. But something about the dialogue just rubs me the wrong way. It is kind of stiff. And it all just feels kind of forced and choppy. Nice to have something different to play though. A good value at $26 plenty of hours of entertainment trying to figure out which item is supposed to be used for what.
Summary: I played "Sam and Max Hit the Road" on an old 386 about 15 years ago. When I saw this one, I wondered if it would live up to that experience. It did! What a great game - It's a puzzle game, so probably not suitable for smaller kids, but my 10 and 13 year old kids love it, too!
