  1. Situation: Comedy is a very good second episode in the new episodic adventure gaming genre. While the two hour play time is very pricey, the quality is good.
  2. 90
    It's a bit shorter than Episode 1 (mostly due to slightly easier puzzles), but the script is much sharper and funnier this time around, which makes it a more than adequate trade-off. Telltale Games is finally hitting its stride with this series and we couldn't be happier.
  3. Hilarious continuation, and it looks like it'll only get better from here.
  4. The difficulty of some of the puzzles could be increased, but the variety of gameplay is there and the game was enjoyable and definitely worth the price of download.
  5. Situation: Comedy is where the Sam & Max series starts to really pick up steam - partly because it reveals the first hints at an overarching plot for the "season's" remaining four episodes.
  6. 78
    Situation: Comedy advances the story but it doesn't exactly move the series forward in terms of gameplay or humor. The puzzles are all much too easy and don't really tax the gray matter too much.
  7. Even though Situation: Comedy zealously aims for the easiest of targets – cheap television – its satire can feel obvious at times and its parodies fall flat a little more frequently than they should. [Feb 2007, p.85]
