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.

Classical gem of point'n'click adventure
20 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Detective buddies Sam and Max investigate missing freaks and embark on a nationwide scavenger hunt of tourist traps. Sam the dog is the more perceptive, investigative one, while bunny Max zealously employs muscle wherever possible.

The graphics may not be impressive today, but they were faithfully ported from the comics and made itself at home in the video game medium. The interface is pretty standard for the LucasArts games of the time, and pretty flat by today's standard. The game-play is seasoned at points with mini-games of Sam and/or Max's mad antics in pursuit of The Truth.

But because of the sheer wit, character and zaniness of the dialog, everything is worth clicking, and even the most fruitless actions are rewarding. The banter between the detectives are all quotable, no words are wasted at all. This is a very fun, funny, and memorable game. Get all your friends to play it and you can make character references that will always make you laugh.
