About

Sam & Max 102: Situation: Comedy is the adventure game by TellTale studios, and second episode of the first season Sam & Max Save the World series consisting of 7 episodes overall.

Gameplay

In every show's episode, the player controls Sam and navigates him through the 3D environment. As in many point-and-click adventures, the only interactions with the outside world include walking and examining objects to craft a new one and talking with non-playable characters.
The protagonist's gun also helps in solving some of the sophisticated riddles. There are many sections within the game, and one can travel through them using the navigator. In spite of the game features action scenes, it is impossible to die while playing — even if the player makes a lot of mistakes, the car collisions, for example, during the chases, would be cosmetic. There is a variation in dialogues — while presented with a options tree, one may choose the best suitable one. The choices affect subsequent playthrough.

Key features and plot

The game is set in a parodу universe where everything mimics pop-culture of a Western world. We play as Sam, who is a dog but walks and acts like a human. During the season, Sam and Max who looks much like a rabbit, solve the various riddles as a detective couple. The seconds part's story takes place a month after the first one and investigates the famous TV presenter holding her spectators as hostages.

Sam & Max: 102 - Situation: Comedy reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
"Sam & Max: Season One: Situation: Comedy" is one of the best Episodes of the saucomic Episode Point and Click Adventures, whose first Season consists of six Episodes. The overturns sadistic Bunny Max and the jovial Dog Sam form a congenial Team. They are freelance police Officers, investigative Detectives and solve every Case with their Firm, however absurd or outlandish. Mechanically, we are in classic Point-and-Click. We (almost) always control Sam, click on Things that all trigger a Comment, stuff some of them into our Inventory, use them with other Things or other Protagonists, and select from multiple conversational Options for the latter. As classic as the Gameplay, so twisted is the Humour. Everything is taken on the Rails here, whether Television Formats or American Presidents. The more abstruse the better. In doing so, the Series doesn't shy away from bad Puns and Calaus. But it is precisely this disrespectful approach to everything and everyone that opens up the Range from sharp Parody to Level-free flat wit. Everything else is subordinated to a good Punchline. And that's exactly what makes for the Wit and Charm of "Sam & Max." In this Episode "Situation: Comedy," the Television Industry in particular is taken to The grain with all its Exaggerations. If the two have to turn off a Sitcom scene with a Cow and a self-infatuated chicken As well as permanent piciers, or in a Late-NIght talk show only reduces the Palaver to "Blablabla," the Series shows its strongest and wittiest, Sociopolitical albern-overturned side. This is then Spoof in Pure Form. As varied as the Settings of the individual Episodes may be (TV Studio, White House, the Moon), you are always on the road in all Episodes in the same core settings of the Home Road. The Puzzle Structure is also often similar. In Terms Of content, there are the wildest and most surprising Ideas, but structurally many Puzzles run according to the Motto: Do three or four Tasks and then come back, off. All small Weaknesses, however, are more than compensated for by the constant Humor Fireworks. In any Case, you should play the English-language Version if you don't want to miss Gags. The German Synchro makes an effort, but often-due to numerous Puns that can hardly be translated-has no Chance. The Playing Time is neat, because you are busy with each of the six Episodes about two Hours. (On Steam, however, you can only buy the whole Season 1 consisting of 6 Episodes anyway). Rating: 9/10 Atmosphere 9/10 Story 7/10 Graphic 8/10 Sound 7/10 Game Mechanics 7/10 Balancing 9/10 Game Pass Conclusion: A well-rehearsed Canned Later please. 9/10 Overall Rating
