Poor Max. The lovable, psychotic lagomorph has had a rough season. He's had his brain stolen by a space ape and a sorcerer, his body hijacked by an ancient, bratty pharaoh and, at the conclusion of Episode Four, he's been transformed into a shambling,...

The latest saga of Sam & Max finally comes to a close, and after gumshoeing our way through the case, we’re ready for another season. The City That Dares Not Sleep is hard evidence that the point-and-click-adventure genre is still completely relevant...

Short and sweet, this episode has everything. The story is great as we finally see who has been behind all of the crazy hijinks and we get a wonderful emotion-touching conclusion to the season. The graphics and voice acting are of course top notch and...

Sam och Max fick en storstilad comeback för ett par år sedan då Telltale tog över efter att Lucasarts inte brytt sig om den galna kaninen och deckar-hunden på sju evigheter. Telltale gjorde övertagandet med bravur och introducerade äventyrsspelande i...
