Sam & Max Save the World Xbox 360 Review

Console Obsession
29 May 2010
  • Excerpt: Telltale Games must surely be the darling of those who played and enjoyed the glory days of the beloved point and click adventure genre. Not only are they almost single handily keeping pointing and clicking alive, but they’re also reviving some of the most cherished games of the genre, with the...

  • Summary: ' Sam & Max Save the World ' is a bundle of joy, it’s also fantastic value for money. The mostly simplistic puzzles aren’t going to suit some, although, for the rest of us, these comedy games have great dialogue and voice acting, and, on the whole, it’s almost like the puzzles are designed to be...

  • Conclusion: People who don't know Sam & Max will just see a frustrating point and click game with illogical puzzles and long drawn out boring dialogue, and those who do (like me) will probably feel that they're watching their fond memories disgraced and disrespected.

  • Summary: Sam & Max Save the World comes off as a lazy port from Telltale, as if their goal was to simply get the game running “well enough” on Xbox 360 and call it a day. The controls aren't optimized for the platform, the framerate is as bad as it was on Wii including slowdown on menu and credit screens...
  • Pros: The hilarious dialog, storylines and puzzles haven't changed from the PC version., The widescreen support is nice., Telltale added the ability to run outdoors to this port. A small but welcome touch that makes getting around a little easier.
  • Cons: The framerate is horrific; just good enough to not make the game unplayable, but bad enough that even the main menu and credits experience slowdown and occasional pauses., The analog stick isn't as accurate or responsive as a mouse, and there are no alternate control schemes such as d-pad movemen...

  • Summary: Sam & Max Save the World is not just the funniest video game of the year, it's the funniest thing I've seen on my television screen in ages. It features clever writing, thought provoking storylines, huge mysteries and enough puzzles to keep you going for close to twenty hours.

  • Excerpt: In 1993, Sam & Max grew from its comic book roots and made its gaming debut in the Lucasarts title Sam & Max Hit the Road. The “graphic adventureâ€� game featured the genre’s trademark point-and-click exploration and puzzle-solving mechanics, but what made it popular were the titular stars of the...
