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.
