Sam and Max: Freelance Vids

Sam & Max Hit the Road is the funniest adventure ever crafted. Yes. It's funnier than Monkey Island, funnier than Bone, funnier than my aunty. Sam and Max: Freelance Police, was supposed to be even funnier, but was quite unfortunately murdered by Darth Vader. Not everything was lost though, as Obi Telltale Kenobi is currently working on the new (episodic) Sam and Max game, and as I am presenting you with a genuinely silly and quite pointless (but relevant) video...

Now, am I nice or what? I am also helping you find out more about the cancelled Sam and Max game and the brand new Steve Purcell webcomics.

For further adventuring you could have a look at my reviews of Apprentice, And Then There Were None and Telltale Texas Hold 'Em. To get back at rotten ol' Darth try Star Wars Battlefront 2.

  1. I never played any of the Sam & Max games, but the Freelance Police looks interesting to say the least.... I would have definitely checked it out if it came to see the light of day.

  2. Freelance police would have been really great.... And ross, believe me, playing Sam and Max, is a really rewarding experience... can't tecommend it enough.

    Cheers mate

  3. I'm one of those rare people who didn't like the first Sam & Max game all that much, and I must say I didn't find it particularly funny either. Still, Freelance Police looked really good and I'm definitely interested in Telltale's rougher take on the characters.

  4. How come?
    I mean, why didn't you like it?

  5. It's not that I didn't like it, I just didn't like it that much. It's my least favorite LA/LFG adventure. Some puzzles were just a bit too illogical for my taste (had no problem finishing DoTT which featured similarly warped logic - it was just better designed), the story was so-so and the humor was clever, but it never really made me laugh, just chuckle.

    I loved the locations, though.

  6. Well, I guess it's matter of taste, and I too believe that day of the tentacle was better as a game.. Just not that funny.
