[Game] Sam & Max: Hit the Road

Sam & Max - Hit the RoadHolly cow, twenty-two years later and this game is still as amazing as ever. If you thought Monkey Island was good, you better check Sam & Max out; I can barely believe Sierra was actually considered Lucas Arts’ competitor at this point (oh right, they had Gabriel Knight).

Positive: Negative:
Genuinely funny humor
Some really unintuitive puzzles
Fascinating, wacky noir-esque setting Plot feels a bit random at a few instances
Lovable, interesting characters
Poignant, witty dialogue
Classic adventure game-play

  1. SamnMax and Day of the Tentacle were superb games in the early 90s, and they still are. And both totally nailed the wacky humour. But I wouldn’t completely write Sierra off, because they’ll always have Gabriel Knight.


    1. Yeah, it seems I had momentarily forgot Gabriel Knight when I wrote that, and was only thinking King’s and Space Quest. GK series were really awesome, too.
