Weak

Sam and Max: Beyond Wasted Time & Mediocrity

Another title I desperately wanted to like but falls very short of any of today's gaming standards.

Gameplay: Incredibly slow frame when moving around in environments and through doors (Example: Resident Evil), Graphics are incredibly basic and boring, basic control point and click style setup but sometimes the character wouldn't go to where you wanted him to.

Story: Standard six episode gameplay that's lazily written and in the end is largely unfunny.

Overall: Not really much to write about since this is a port of a PC game and it's point and click like a mouse, but if you are dying to play this then you will be disappointed. If you're a Sam and Max fan then this game will make you hate them with a passion. Don't rent this.

This is the kinda game I should really like, but it ends up being just OK. The story is quite humorous and it's basically a lot of word based puzzles to advance the story. The game had about 5 chapters & after I played 2 of them I had enough & back it went. At least you get a good chuckle from time to time! My best, D.

Bad

Poor performance, long load times ruin the game

I love this franchise, and was hoping to sample some of the latest installments. It is obvious, just seconds into the game, that this is a poor poor port. All the animations drop frames, whenever you are trying to use items to solve a puzzle you know if its correct by the 5-10 seconds complete pause of the game while the result of the solution is loaded, and moving between rooms results in 30 second load screens. Sound even skipped at several points.

This episodes should be available for other platforms, including on the PC off steam. Get it there, don't waste your time with this one.
