Sam & Max Beyond Time and Space review

  • Tons of imagination
  • High-quality humor
  • Great puzzles and minigames
  • Not all episodes of equal quality
  • A bit late coming to 360
  • A few weak puzzles

A superb seasonal adventure kicks off this latest foray into the weird world of Sam and Max. This time the duo must perform an exorcism on Santa, contend with a pop-quoting robot and even descend into the bowels of hell itself.

It’s typically anarchic stuff peppered with the usual acidic humour and in-jokes, but it’s the usual high standard of logical problems to solve that’ll keep you coming back for more. There are also a number of well-handled minigame-type diversions to try out, such as a boxing match between a rat and a sinister-looking toy and the irresistible opportunity to run down the duo’s answer to Sesame Street’s Elmo. In short: this is another superb addition to the much loved series. If you’re a fan of the duo, go get it.

    Thus far it's out on PC, hardcopy and download (from and Steam) and XBL. It has not yet been announced for Wii. I'm still waiting. They've been a little slow with the Monkey Island episodes too.
