I had recently received this game and was looking forward to playing because I am a fan of the show. This games graphics and humor do not dissappoint. The graphics are great and there is plenty of humor to keep you laughing. The missions are long so that you wont be able to fininish this game in one or two times of playing it. The controls are good move by pointing the arrow on the screen and point at an object to pick up or talk to some one also shoot with the a button. The downfall I had with this game was the mouth movements dont match the actual voice. I would recommend this game to fans of Sam and Max and also people looking for a fun and funny point and click adventure game on the wii. I look forward to seeing more Sam and Max games for the wii.
The game is amusing. There's no denying that. The banter of the characters is silly and enjoyable. However, by the sixth episode, the game can get to be feeling somewhat formulaic, as there are generally only four locations per episode and you're relying on the same sorts of interactions with the same mildly nuanced characters.
However, my biggest complaint would be that on a couple of occasions, the game actually froze - the whole Wii console did. I have never experienced that before. If it's actually a consequence of the game and not just some anomalous occurrence of my console, be forewarned. The autosave feature of the game is nice, but generally, you do lose control of the console during one of these autosaves and it's a bit disheartening to play back through up to that point (although it's REALLY quick once you know what you're doing).
If you're like me and clicked on everything possible up front, there's probably not a huge amount of replay value, but this is a nice episodic game for leisurely evening activities.
