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%26rsquo;s typically anarchic stuff peppered with the usual acidic humour and in-jokes, but it%26rsquo;s the usual high standard of logical problems to solve that%26rsquo;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%26rsquo;s answer to Sesame Street%26rsquo;s Elmo. In short: this is another superb addition to the much loved series. If you%26rsquo;re a fan of the duo, go get it.
