Game: Sam and Max, Season 1
Genre: Point and Click Adventure
Platform: Wii
Media: Disk
Price Paid: $29.99
Would Pay: $24.99

A comedy point and click, so naturally, it was a first day purchase for me. I played the original LucasArts Sam and Max many years ago, and had to try this out. The humor is still there, and you have to love the subtle Zork humor that you'd have had to play Zork to even notice. Some cheap pop culture Honeymooner references as well, I'm probably just an old fart to have noticed it.

Nothing really innovative about the game itself, it's a plain point and click. Nothing special, but nothing really bad like Syberia. My main complaint was that the number of locations was severely limited. There was the main street your office is on, as well as one other location with a few rooms for each episode of the game. It just felt too small to me, hence the $5 ding on the price. Regardless, I will probably get Season 2 when it's finally published on the Wii.

Cool, I've been curious about that since I'm a big fan of their short lived cartoon show. I'll definitely be picking it up at some point.

Atari is supposed to publish Season 2 on the Wii. I think episodes are already out for the PC, maybe even Mac.
