Sam & Max 201: Ice Station Santa is the first episode of a graphic adventure game Sam & Max Beyond Time and Space based on self-titled media franchise. It is a sequel to Sam & Max Save the World.


The game follows two friends and freelance policemen: an anthropomorphic suit-wearing dog Sam and “hyperkinetic rabbity thing” (as described in the source material) Max. It takes place one year after the event of Sam & Max Save the World. The story begins with a giant robot attack on their office. After the heroes defeat the robot, they find out it was a present from Santa Claus, so they decide to travel to the North Pole where they discover panicking Santa who barricaded himself in his workshop and threatens the elves with firearms. Sam and Max decide to find out the reason for Santa’s distress as well the cause of the robot attack.


Just like the previous game, Sam and Max Beyond Time and Space is a point-and-click adventure with a heavy emphasis on story and comedy. Throughout the game, you explore different locations, solve puzzles, interact with other characters. Although the core gameplay is identical to Sam and Max Save the World, there are some new features in the sequel. One of the most notable is that the game now has a hint system which you can adjust in the main menu. Aside from the main point-and-click constituent of the game, there are some mini-games such as driving sequence or a boxing match.

Sam & Max: Episode 201 - Ice Station Santa reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
The Game as a whole (Sam & Max Season Two) is memorable. This Episode, though, is bad. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1204614305 To Season Two in General Season Two resembles The chaotic duo'S Season One in an all-too strong Way. It's a good idea to play Season One first because most Of the characters and Locations in Season Two Reappear and are assumed to be known. But That's also, to my Taste, the heavy Downside of Season Two. Although the individual Episodes naturally tell new Stories, it seems like an old Chewing Gum that you've polished up a bit. It's too often the old-known Figures who run Sam & Max across the Way in changing Situations, even if some Settings are new. Yes, there are new Characters, too, but almost everything from Season One is used again somewhere: From the Limo Lausern to Rainer Segen, from the Oval Office to the TV Studio. Worse, though, Sam & Max have suddenly become rather nice, which is particularly noticeable when Bunting. Instead of pulling everything through the Cocoa, demolishing it and dismantling it, they should and want to help save Christmas or other very nice Stuff, which has made it rather boring for me. The Story of each Episode is more densely connected than in Season One. So some things from Episode 5 are incomprehensible if you don't know Episode 4. Even so, a Hodgepodge of eccentric But harmless episodes that largely lack real Bite, Nasty Humor, social Criticism, or other things I still felt in Season One. Rarely, for example, Max is properly let off the Leash. Really funny or for a Laugh, I rarely found anything. The Puzzles are quite demanding. Some Things are very light, but some things are also very difficult, so I have looked occasionally in a Walkthrough. Technology, Graphics, sound and Control is like Season One. However, this time Steam'S Version is completely in English. A German Version probably exists as a retail product, but with other (less good) Dubbing Voices. Pro & Contra: + Good Main pair + Some good Dialogues and Jokes + Some good puzzles o Only English-A little sensual Story (overall And in most Epsiodes)-Simple Graphic-Some outlandish puzzles Rating: 5/10 A little impressive Continuation of The Abentuer by Sam & Max. For me, it was rather disappointing, but there's some Entertainment value, specifically the later Episodes. Sam & Max 201: Ice Station Santa This Episode is bad. Sam & Max head to the North Pole suspecting that a nasty Giant robot that threatened their Home has been sent by Santa. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1204613888 History is as absurd as it has just been heard. She's of the "We need to save Christmas" type. I found the Story abyssively bad (but I'm also a Christmas Allergy Sufferer). http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1204613123 The Puzzles were rather strange, for me little logical, a few very simple ones. Rating: 4/10 The Thumbs up therefore comes a bit uncertain as the Overall Score of Season Two. The other Episodes: Episode 2, Episode 3, Episode 4, Episode 5.
