Perfect

Just about Perfect

The Wii edition of Sam And Max season 1 is just about identical to the PC version. The only real differences, I found, are the double click run feature(which wasn't implemented until Season 2 on the PC) and a few glitches that held me back from giving it a perfect 10 rating.

So the problems: Only two really. There was an unfortunate tendency for the game to clip off the end of some of the dialog exchange, it was usually at the very end and only slightly annoying. Then there were the load times between leaving the street and heading into, say, the office. A black screen, with the flaming Max head at the bottom, usually accompanied any change of location.

The comedy and cases are exactly the same to the PC version. The challenge, of the puzzles, isn't particularly high but the jokes are hilarious. It does what every good adventure game should do, it tells an enjoyable story that is just as fun after all the secrets and solutions have been revealed as it was on the first play through. I still play Season 1 & 2 regularly because, even though I could play through it in my sleep, the jokes are still funny and the puzzles are still a joy to work.

So maybe the glitches are mole hills that I've made into mountains. The game is an excellent port of one of the greatest game serieses of all time and maybe, just maybe, I can give it a 10.

This is the closest I have gotten to point and click 90's games on the PC. The humor was great. I recommend it.

Ok. I played this game and I think it was great. The only problem is that it needs to much thought. For each episode i had to use a walkthrough atleast once. Plus the game is too short. The walking is also abnormal. You point and click on where you want to walk. Rent this game, but whatever you do DON'T BUY IT.
