    Yes, it's the best Sam & Max episode ever made. UFO's, time travel.. what's there NOT to like? Very aesthetically pleasing, weird experience in general.

    Chariots of the Dogs serves as a very serious necessary because it ties together nearly everything from previous episodes. So though it's whacked and nonfunctional in some respects, with its overabundance of portals, time travel quests, and flat jokes, it's particularly relevant to this season's overarching themes. For followers of season two, it's a must-play, even if it isn't the funniest episode.
  2. I'm all for games that want you to reach the end, and encourage you to stay on board for the whole ride, but, assuming that the vast majority of people following the series are experienced point-and-click players, this is starting to feel patronising. When the actual core gameplay becomes an undemanding routine, that's a dangerous position for an episodic series which needs to keep players playing.
  3. Chariots of the Dogs sucked me in and completely immersed me with the joy that comes from playing a special adventure game.
