Storyline

The year is 1950 and Sam and Max are a pair of detectives somewhere in New York. While Sam is a no nonsense, dry humored, drab individual, his bizarre life is kept interesting by partner Max, a perverse and sadistic midget with a psychotic sense of humor, violent tendencies and a swearing fetish. Living in a rundown office building/office, they pass through life day by day off of saved money from their glory days, and spend time watching TV and participating in other strange activities as they wait for an assignment. One day, after a dry spell of employment, Sam and Max are called to the scene of a kidnapping at a local tourist trap. It seems two human oddities, a Bigfoot and a giraffe necked girl, have been kidnapped, and the Siamese twin brothers, who are no stranger then the oddities they promote, are paying a large cash sum up front for the return of their prized possessions.

One of the best adventure games ever
3 October 2000 | by (Manitoba, Canada) – See all my reviews

I got this game as a part of the first LucasArts Entertainment pack and I had absolutely no idea what it was. But when I got home and fired it up I fell in love. The game, as a whole, is filled with witty and incredibly sarcastic dialog and about a bajillion movie and game related in-jokes.

From the streamlined interface to the entertaining puzzles to such great minigames as Car Bomb and the Max's Wax Coloring Kit this game is a blast to play. If you haven't played it yet, I highly recommend you do. 10/10 on My Personal Scale.
