SummarySam and Max Are Back! Again!
The GoodSam and Max Season Two takes everything that was great about Season One, and makes it better. Our two eccentric, freelance detectives are back to solve five new cases, which eventually send our heroes straight to hell.
Season Two features the same cartoony graphics, the same smooth, point and click gameplay and the same style of humor. Most of the main characters from the first season return and the game looks and feels just a bit better then Season 1.
Season Two seems less buggy. If you get stuck with a puzzle, one of our heroes will say something that will point you in the right direction. While Season One was a great game, Season Two seems better fine tuned, for a lack of a better phrase.
The BadThe Second Season only has five cases, where as the first Season had six cases.
Much like with Sam and Max: Season One, the overall quality of the Season Two cases seems to vary wildly. None of the cases are bad, not by any means, but some cases are better then others.
Season Two let's you visit Stinky's Dinner , something that I felt was missing from Season One.
The North Pole case is one of my favorites, but some of the other cases feel a bit underdeveloped. Even my favorite cases, feel like a bit more could have been with the concept.
I realize that Season Two, much like Season One, was developed with a limited budget. Many of the complaints dont detract from the fun factor and are probably unavoidable, given how the game was designed and marketed.
Yet, when you complete Season Two, all five cases, you will want more. Sadly, Season Three wasn't released on the Xbox 360.
