If you’re looking for an adventure game that packs a lot of humor, interesting puzzles and psychic powers together in a Twilight-zone/science-fiction skin, you should give Sam & Max: The Devil’s Playhouse a try. Although the beginning and end don’t...

I expected a lot from Sam & Max: The Devil's Playhouse, but I had no idea what kind of emotional torment it would put me through. From brain-swapping to psychic powers, this has been a season full of shocking twists and turns. After this episode we...

The world is finally (hopefully) safe from the evil space ape Skunkape, but now thousands of half naked Sam clones (doppelgangers) are terrorizing the city and they won’t stop until they have found all the ancient toys of power. What a night!The...

The penultimate episode of Sam & Max: The Devil's Playhouse, Beyond the Alley of the Dolls, starts with a homage to filmmaker George Romero as the Freelance Police take refuge from a horde of scantily-clad, zombie-like Sam clones in Stinky's Diner....

With Sam successfully recovering Max’s sorry excuse for a brain in Episode 3 of The Devil’s Playhouse, all seemed to be well for our crime-solving pair. Out of nowhere come a mob of scantily-clad Sam lookalikes who take the Devil’s Toybox and send the...

Telltale has been moving the current season of Sam & Max along fairly quickly, with each episode trying to go bigger than the one before it, with non-stop cliffhangers and massive plot twists. That said, there have been some minor troubles brewing...

Since opening in 2004, Telltale Games has made quite a name for itself in the episodic adventure arena. One of the main reasons for the company's success is the Sam & Max franchise, which has lately been revitalized by The Devil's Playhouse, an...

Telltale Games brings us the fourth installment of this year’s Sam and Max season called “Beyond the Alley of the Dolls”! As we left our intrepid adventurers last episode, they were being chased by a mob of Sam clones. Will our detective duo survive...

As The Devil’s Playhouse builds the final episode of the season (to what I can only imagine will be a ridiculous conclusion), the stakes keep getting higher. Max, now re-united with his brain after the last episode, They Stole Max’s Brain!, continues...

Right after getting Max’s brain back into his “rabitty-thingy” body, just as everything seemingly is getting back to some semblance of “normal” in the Sam & Max world, the Freelance Police duo find themselves right in the middle of a clone...

The Freelance Police have been pretty busy this season, dealing with a variety of villains one after another while learning more about Max’s emerging psychic powers. This episode is little different, and immediately puts you in the action as the duo...

International Review By Eurogamer on 70

Så er vi ved at nå til vejs ende i den bombastiske tredje sæson af Sam & Max krøniken. Denne næstsidste episode, "Beyond the Alley of the Dolls", markerer det egentlige midtpunkt i den overordnede ramme i The Devil's Playhouse. De første to episoder...

International Review By OnlineWelten on 77

Die vierte Episode der aktuellen Sam & Max-Staffel wird von einigen serientypischen Begleiterscheinungen geplagt. Anfangs gute Ideen (Spielzeuge der Macht) verlieren an Reiz, Charaktere und Schauplätze wirken abgenutzt und sogar der Humor trifft nicht...

International Review By Zeitgeist Game Review on -

I didn’t feel that They Stole Max’s Brain was as good of an episode as the previous two, so I’m glad that Telltale triumphantly redeemed themselves with Beyond the Alley of the Dolls! Everything that was great from the first two episodes has returned...

Kun viimeksi näimme Samin ja Maxin, he olivat jopa omien mittapuidensa mukaan oudossa tilanteessa. Maxin aivot oli palautettu paikalleen, maailma pelastettu ja kaikki kunnossa… kunnes paikalle virtasi tuhansia Sam-klooneja. Mistä ja miksi? Sitä...

Noen ganger er det fint med forutsigbarhet, og Telltale Games har med sine Sam & Max-spill vist seg å være forutsigbarheten selv. Hver måned leverer de et morsomt og fantasifullt eventyr som byr på fin og solid underholdning for en kveld eller to....
