Sam & Max Hit the Road is a standard setting game in every way. It was crafted by writers, artists, and actors at the top of their game. It represents the perfect use of a licensed property. It has stood the test of time for more than a decade and continues to top videogame lists around the world. It is, in my opinion, the best game LucasArts ever released and my favorite adventure game of all time.

Sam & Max Hit the Road is a classic, much like the 1960 DeSoto Adventurer our protagonists use in the game to travel across the continent. It's definitely one of the funniest games I've played - even after completing it half a dozen times, it still keeps surprising me with new puns and one-liners. Even if you never had the chance to read the comics, this game is "a must" for any adventure gamer, if only for liberal education of the defining games in the genre.

The game is not the best of LucasArts’s offerings, but it’s definitely up there. The only things that really hold it back for me are the poor soundtrack and the new way of assigning actions through the right mouse button. Other than these minor quibbles, you have a very solid point-and-clicker, which will provide you with quite a few hours' entertainment.
