Sam and Max: Season One
First off, this game is so FUNNY. The jokes are great, and the characters are also funny. This game overall is great and the graphics arn't bad. I'd recommend it.
Too hard and confusing
This game is very hard and confusing. I worked on it for almost two hours and didn't even make it past mission 1. I just gave up. Great game if you like comedy video games, but the worst game ever if you want to get past the game in under 1 week.
Sam and Max Season 1 Review
Sam and Max Season 1 for the Wii is a good game. It is a great challenge. You will end up backtracking and not know where to go, but you will figure it out eventually. The graphics SUCK. I'm sorry, but this is inexcusable. Bland textures, horrible camera, etc. It's just bad. The game took me about 10-11 hours to beat. The storyline is great, one of my favorite parts of the game. Sam and Max are very funny, especially in episode 6. (You'll see what I mean) Fantastic point-and-click controls give this game an old-skool feel, which is great. The interface is also great, very simple, you have a gear in the top left where you can save, load, or quit. In the bottom left there is a box that holds all of the random crap you will pick up, such as unicorns, magician hats, tokens for an arcade, etc. It is very user-friendly. The sound is ok. I had to turn the music off and listen to some A7X personally, but you may like it. Voice acting is good. Overall, if you care about graphics, obviously don't get this game. But if you want a fun point-and-click adventure for the Wii, get Sam and Max.
Point-and-click adventuring gaming comes to the Wii!
As a fan of the '90s movement of 2D point-and-click adventure games for the PC, I wholeheartedly approve this welcome return of a very familiar, fun, and challenging format. After 3D third-person games pretty much killed off cursor-based games such as these (beginning with Eidos's 1996 Tomb Raider), I thought I would never see an original adventure game again. Then in comes the Wii which reintroduces and thrives on cursor-based movement and exploration! While it's not as precise as a mouse, it is still very involving and engaging. Sam and Max: Season One reintroduces the characters of LucasArts' Sam and Max Hit the Road in a very fun, funny, imaginative, and flat-out weird game. It is very enjoyable, challenging, easy to play (all you need to do is point and click!), the animation is well done (3D cartoony-style graphics), the interface is simple, sound and music is top-notch, and the six-separate storylines (dubbed "episodes") are all very funny and entertaining. Could I possibly recommend this game any more? The only thing I can complain about is the length of the game; I just wanted it to go on and on! Luckily Sam and Max: Season Two has already been released for the PC... I only hope the popularity of this game helps it get ported to the Wii, too!
Thank you, TellTaleGames. Thank you.
Ok, I've been a fan of the Sam and Max series since around the release of Season 2 and I've loved every episode and beat it within a day or two and loved every second of it. And now that the game is coming out on the Wii I'm thinking it's a perfect considering this is kinda like Myst (a point and click game) and not something like FEAR or STALKER. Trust me when I say I'll be buying the game when it comes out and you should at least rent it.
