Sam & Max: 105 - Reality 2.0 reviews

Translated by

"Sam & Max: Season One: Reality 2.0" is the fifth 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." This Episode "Reality 2.0" is mostly about Computers and the Internet. When outdated Computers tune a Motivational Song, it already has a great Comedy. We move a large Part in a Kind Of parallel World of the well-known Locations, the Internet version of Reality. Many Gags necessarily refer to the Time of the Internet, as it was a few Years ago. Nevertheless, the Jokes have quite an apt Irony and the Parallel World Structure offers a welcome Variation to the Well-known. As usual, this Episode is not primarily about the Puzzles, but about the anarchist-ironic Humour that always isolates Elements of the Real And parodies them through Overdrawing. 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).
