Sam and Max, the Freelance Police, get their first new case in a while when the Commisioner orders them to investigate multiple reports of malfeasance (Max's "second favorite feasance"). Seems the Soda Poppers, a trio of former child stars, are causing trouble in Sam and Max's neighborhood. But there's more than one washed-up television icon up to no good around here, as Sam and Max discover the Soda Poppers' old rival, Brady Culture, has brainwashed the trio into becoming pawns in an insidious mass hypnosis scheme. And the only thing standing in Brady Culture's way is the Freelance Police and their "esoteric brand of personalized criminal justice". Written by Andrew Powell

Great sequel to a great classic
4 November 2006 | by See all my reviews

This game is absolutely a worthy sequel to Sam & Max. For 13 years adventure gamers have awaited this sequel, and it's so good, it's been worth the wait. There are in fact only 2 minor flaws to the game. 1) It's released in episodes, so gamers will be done with the episode in a couple of hours. 2) The voice actors are not the same from the original Sam & Max game. Now, that last fact can be ignored, cause the new voice actors actually do a good job to somewhat copy the original voices, but without the blatant rip off. Even though the game's game time will be short, and it's puzzles might be a bit too easy at times, the comedy that's been wrapped in the game is hilarious and in the same path as the first game. The game's control system is simple and the transition to 3D worked out very well. Just because of the comedy gold within the game, I can easily forgive the somewhat short game time. If you loved Sam & Max: Hit The Road, chances are, you'll also love this game.
