  • Summary: Droves of undead roam the streets, and all flesh must be eaten! The leader of this undead horde is some emo Eurotrash vampire freak, and it’s up to Sam & Max to take him down -- hopefully with their brains intact. [GameTap]

    After nine episodes and nearly a year and a half, this stuff hasn't begun to feel old or tired.
  2. Assuming you don't have a strong aversion to seeing vampires walk around with their thumbs dangling lazily from their nipple rings, you can't really go wrong with this.
  3. Night of the Raving Dead lacks a truly memorable, show-stopping sequence to really put it over the top, but it's Grade-Z(for zombie and zany)through and through. [May 2008, p.66]
  4. Like the previous games in this series, Sam & Max - Night of the Raving Dead is a neatly put together adventure that is stamped by professionalism.
  5. Sam and Max continue to deliver humorous adventures on a monthly basis. While this is probably one of the more difficult games that they have released recently it is also one of the most fulfilling in terms of story.
  6. It's better than Ice Station Santa, yet not quite as good as Moai Better Blues. It remains small in both size and scope, while those who have stuck with the series since Season 1 will find that much of the actual gameplay is basic meat-and-potatoes fetch-questing. And's indecently cheap and, for all its minor flaws, the ongoing saga of Sam & Max is still the funniest game around.
  7. 60
    After the high quality of the first two episodes of Season Two, it's disappointing to see the series misfire as it reaches its midpoint.

    Just as good as the other ones in the season, but loses a point for not improving on certain things. The game still feels low budget, with out of place reused characters continuing to detract from the experience. The jokes are as before, on occasion being chuckle-funny but for the most part just missing. Entertainment wise, the game is still a decent deal. Also, the memory leak is still there that will somehow manage to eat up a whole gig of RAM. Expand
